Back in an 'Indiana' State of Mind
'The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' meets every expectation—without ever exceeding them.
Or perhaps people don't think twice about seeing barbaric tribes in the movies. Perhaps the Indiana Jones films have done their job: teaching us that Western civilization is best.
The reviews may not dwell on the Indians, but check out the poster below. What a surprise to see spearchucking savages chasing Indy...not.
Anyone want to bet that Crystal Skull will imply that aliens or Atlanteans built the "lost kingdom"? I.e., that Indians were too primitive to do anything that sophisticated?
