Indiana Jones at Cannes

Indiana Jones at Cannes

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull kicked off the Cannes Film Festival with fan appreciation but tepid critical response.

Lucky for Harrison Ford, he doesn't read reviews anyway. But it will be hard for him to avoid all of the buzz about this one. After all, this time there aren't just negative reviews; there are news stories about the critical response and roundups of the bad reviews.

But at least, as this article says, "The film received none of the derisive laughter or catcalls that mounted near the end of the first press screening for Da Vinci Code." So, hey, it's better than The Da Vinci Code. Not exactly high praise, but it's something.

These movies aren't made for critics, though. They never have been. The earlier Indy films weren't met with raves either. These are fan films (and there are no bigger Indy fanboys than Spielberg, Lucas, and Ford), and next week's box office numbers will let us know how well that works out. And my guess is that it will open even stronger than Iron Man.
