    Not surprisingly, Ford has most of the action here. But Connery -- in what is often a test of a true actor -- shows how much you can do with an essentially passive part.

    Fans of Steven Spielberg and George Lucas' Indiana Jones series may rest assured that the latest installment, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, is fully up to, as well as virtually indistinguishable from, its predecessors.

    Though Last Crusade lacks the novelty of Raiders (and, by the way, the flat-out breathless pacing of Temple of Doom), it's an entertaining capper to the trilogy.

    This is not so much a bad film as a machine-like one lacking the same energy as the original, which it most resembles.

    Even if he's considerably more battered than his nearest competitor, Indiana quits at the top of the heap. It's just that the heap isn't what it was eight years ago. It's been almost flattered to death.

    Captures some of the sense of fun that infused the first movie while using the addition of Sean Connery to up the comedic ante and provide a father/son dynamic.

    What was conceived as a child's dream of a Saturday matinee serial has evolved into a moving excursion into religious myth.

    The fast pace and force-fed wisecracks are as seamless as ever, but rarely has audience laughter sounded as hollow.

    Jeffrey Boam's script dabbles with themes of neglect and reconciliation, but there's nothing ponderous about the duo's near death scrapes and light-hearted tussels over the same blonde Fraulein.

    Of the three Jones films, The Last Crusade may well become the sentimental favorite, the Indiana to end them all.

    The final section, in which Indy must claim the Grail and save his father's life, is imbued with a turgid, pop-mystical tone.

    As I watched it, I felt a real delight, because recent Hollywood escapist movies have become too jaded and cynical, and they have lost the feeling that you can stumble over astounding adventures just by going on a hike with your Scout troop.
