The Good: Lots of action, Its a Indiana Jones movie, Great soundtrack,
The Bad: It is to dark, Not as good as the first.
Plot: In 1935, Indiana Jones narrowly escapes the clutches of Lao Che, a crime boss in Shanghai. With his eleven-year old Chinese sidekick Short Round and the gold-digging nightclub singer Willie Scott in tow, Indiana flees Shanghai on a plane that, unknown to them, is owned by Lao. The pilots leave the plane to crash over the Himalayas, though the trio manage to escape on an inflatable boat and ride down the slopes into a raging river. They come to Mayapore, a desolate village in northern India, where the poor villagers believe them to have been sent by the Hindu god Shiva and enlist their help to retrieve the sacred Sivalinga stone stolen from their shrine, as well as the community's children, from evil forces in the nearby Pankot Palace. During the journey to Pankot, Indiana hypothesizes that the stone may be one of the five fabled Sankara stones which promise fortune and glory. Watch the movie to see what next.
Plot:9.6/10- It has a good plot but it tries to darker than the first like The Empire Strikes Back was in the Star Wars saga but becomes to dark.
Action:10/10- Action packed like the first.
Acting:10/10- Harrison Ford is great again.

Comedy:8.0/10- Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is not near as funny as the first one.
Overall: 9.7/10- Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is not as good as the first one but it is still a great movie.
