I don't get the hatred toward the last movie. It was pretty damn good considering it had been nearly a 20 year gap since the last one and Ford is now in his 60s.
Those aren't considerations for making a movie good. Story is all important. The story was so-so. They should have made Darabont's version, it was a far superior script, and no Mutt. The first line set the whole, perfect tone. After the kids speed by the Atomic Cafe on their hot rods, camera stays on Indy, looking after them, he says "Damn kids."
Exactly. A movie is good or bad regardless of how old the star is. And Harrison Ford is too good an actor for his age to matter. The movie was not good and if Harrison Ford hadn't been wearing Indiana Jones outfit and hadn't gone by that name, I don't know I would have known it was an Indy film.
