KIDS WATCH CLASSICS
Big films tackled by little people
What was the movie about?
It’s about Indiana Jones, who is a kind of secret agent/archaeologist/teacher, which I think is awesome. Imagine if your teacher found treasure and killed people at the weekends. In this film, he’s trying to find the Ark Of The Covenant, which the Germans want as well, and it’s a race to see who can get it first. And when you open the box lightning and ghosts come out and you melt.
Did you like the main character? Indiana Jones is really cool and he never goes anywhere without his hat and his whip. He looks really good in glasses. He gets beaten up a lot and can ride a horse really well, too.
Tell me about the opening scene.
It’s full of stunts which I like. He’s trying to get some treasure and he switches it for a bag of sand and thinks everything is okay but then everything starts falling and he gets chased by a massive boulder and only just escapes in time.
Was it a scary film?
It wasn’t scary but it was gruesome and the music added to the tension.
Did you like Marion, Indy’s ex?
She was okay but she drank and smoked a lot and was a bit rubbish at looking after herself. The goodies in this film weren’t so different from the baddies. They all seemed pretty messed up.
What did you make of the ending?
I can’t believe after all that work to get the Ark it ended up in a warehouse. It didn’t seem the safest place to leave it.
Would you recommend the film?
It was very clever and witty and had loads of stunts. I’d definitely recommend it to my friends. I’d give it four stars.
