Big films tack­led by lit­tle peo­ple

Empire (Australasia) - - Review - IL­LUS­TRA­TION OLLY GIBBS

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.
