Storyline

An art collector appeals to Jones to embark on a search for the Holy Grail. He learns that another archaeologist has disappeared while searching for the precious goblet, and the missing man is his own father, Dr. Henry Jones. The artifact is much harder to find than they expected, and its powers are too much for those impure in heart. Written by Jwelch5742

Trivia

Ben Burtt wanted an echoing gunshot for Donovan wounding Henry, so he fired a .357 Magnum in Skywalker Ranch's underground car park, just as George Lucas drove in. See more »

Goofs

When Henry Jones enters the tank to rescue Marcus, the tank's crew and/or additional soldiers are not inside. Colonel Vogel then enters the tank with two aides. When Donovan from the outside informs Vogel that Indy is getting away, Vogel closes the tank's hatch and the tank's engine appears to start, signifying it is on the move. However, at no point did we see the tank's driver or additional crew enter the tank, whom we see in later inside shots of the tank. This suggests a lapse in continuity. If the tank's crew entered after this scene, Vogel's closing of the hatch appears to be entirely redundant. See more »

A truly great feel good film
28 November 2004 | by (Windsor, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The second sequel to Raiders of the Lost Ark is an awesome, beautifully crafted film, and arguably the best of the Indiana Jones trilogy. The film is funnier, classier and far more laid back than the other two woody story lines, mostly because of the introduction of the excellent Sean Connery as Indy's eccentric father. Spielberg and Lucas get back on track after their off the rails first sequel in which to many peoples' horror had none of the Nazis or characters that made Raiders so unique, however, what Spielberg does to make this film a classic is the use of historical data with the swashbuckling storyline of adventure and action. Not to mention that this may well be the greatest feel good film ever made...
