    Are we supposed to like the main character of this film? At the beginning he has a wife and 3 kids, by the end spoiler I didn't experience as much wonderment watching this film as I expected. I much prefer the swashbuckling space adventure flick that came out the same year. 5 years 2 months ago

    This is a movie to talk about after seeing it.

    Love Spielberg's vision.

    The third act is spectacular. It is the only reason I love this movie.

    The first two acts suffer from the "Temple of Doom" syndrome of having repeating annoying, loud, and grating sounds, as well as characters screaming at each other constantly. It really hurts my enjoyment of this movie as i am constantly having my nerves frayed by what's happening on screen.
