During the Cold War, Soviet agents watch Professor Henry Jones when a young man brings him a coded message from an aged, demented colleague, Harold Oxley. Led by the brilliant Irina Spalko, the Soviets tail Jones and the young man, Mutt, to Peru. With Oxley's code, they find a legendary skull made of a single piece of quartz. If Jones can deliver the skull to its rightful place, all may be well; but if Irina takes it to its origin, she'll gain powers that could endanger the West. Aging professor and young buck join forces with a woman from Jones's past to face the dangers of the jungle, Russia, and the supernatural.
|nudity||A man and a woman kiss a few times. A man is seen bare chested for a brief scene.|
|violence||7/10 Some violent/creepy themes including Russians killing Americans, and disrupting mummified corpses to find an Alien Skull made entirely of Crystal. The opening scene of the movie involves a group of Russians dressed like Americans killing a group of American soldiers....all of it is off-screen, but the next scene shows their dead bodies. A group of Russian Soldiers kill Ancient Temple Guards (off-screen, but the bodies are shown) Lots of punching and kicking literally....some characters are shown bloody after a fight (but survive just fine). Several scenes with knife and gun-play (but without almost any blood as a result of gun shots). Some smaller children may not like the huge ants or the aliens, and the the lead villain is killed by the Aliens as she explodes on-screen.. Some ancient dead bodies are shown, one man was well preserved and when the wrapping comes off...he disintegrates on-screen Lots of jokes about dead bodies. In one scene Indy says "hold this" and throws a mummified corpse at his friend; a close up of the dead face is shown. This scene can be shocking in a 'jumpy' kind of way. One of the villains is killed by a huge swarm of ants several inches long. They swarm in to his open mouth as he screams. They carry him across the ground and suck him head-first into a massive ant hill, still screaming. The ant sequence lasts a couple of minutes and could be quite disturbing. Another Russian soldier (the one traveling with Spalko) is covered head to toe with giant red ant's in a brief shot, we are to assume he died. Indy kills a man by forcing a blow dart back into his mouth. This is sudden, and rather disturbing. A man is shot in the foot.|
|profanity||Couple uses of "Son of a Bitch" a couple of "Shit" and many uses of "Oh my God","Hell" and "Damn."|
|frightening||The ending on-screen death is pretty sudden, though not gory, as the main villain disintegrates on-screen at the hands of a creepy-looking Alien. The scene with the ants will freak some people out. Several dead bodies are shown. Lots of skeletons, one is particularly scary. The opening scene in which guards are gunned down in cold blood may be upsetting and offensive. In a graveyard, we see walking skeletons, but it turns out to be natives. These natives attack Indy and Mutt. This scene can be frightening to some. The aliens can be frightening, and the entire opening sequence may be slightly disturbing. We see men incinerated in the blast of a rocket sled firing up. The death count isn't as much as the previous Indy films. PG-13 for adventure violence and scary images.|
