"Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom", is a lot darker than it's predecessor. The atmosphere of the film is intense and more dread filled than any of the other Indiana Jones films. Harrison Ford brings great charm and charisma to his portrayal of the titular character just as he did on the previous installment. The supporting cast have their moments, but suffer from overacting and lack of experience. Kate Capshaw has her moments, but for the most part can be aggravating to watch. It seems to be a mixture of subpar character writing and overacting that plague her character. Jonathan Ke Quan was young in his role and his inexperience can be evident, but he does do a good job for the circumstances. The film is directed very well by Steven Spielberg, and uses great cinematography to enhance the movie as a whole. The practical effects are great and the set designs are creative and fun. There are a lot of great things about this film, and it does truly feel like an adventure, but some of the acting and themes hold it back from being the best in the series. Overall, I give this film a 7.5/10.
