Indy 4 reviews surprisingly good

76% on Rottentomatoes, Ebert likes it, L.A. Times like it:

When you think about it, all the pre-release concern about just how good the new "Indy" was going to be, though understandable, is not completely rational. After all, given its Saturday matinee genre nature and the fact that star Ford, creator Lucas, director Spielberg, composer John Williams and editor Michael Kahn, among others, have all returned, it was inevitable that this film was going to fall within a very narrow range in terms of quality. It was either going to be a worse- or better-than-average Indiana Jones film.

It turns out it's one of the better ones and everyone involved can breathe a sigh of relief.
