Indiana Jones and the Last CrusadeClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade has lots of hand-to-hand combat, action-filled chases, and gun fights. Main characters are in near-constant peril, and one is shot point blank and almost bleeds to death. Minor characters are killed in somewhat gruesome ways, including beheading; a bad guy meets his end in a fairly disturbing scene. There's a bit of kissing/banter, and it's implied that two men have slept with the same woman. Language is mild, and there's ultimately a strong message about the importance of the father-son relationship.
- Sexual Content
- It's insinuated that Indiana and his father slept with the same woman. Some kissing/embracing. Banter.
- Hand-to-hand combat, action-filled chases (boats, planes, tanks, more), beatings, and gun fights. Bad-guy minions are killed in fairly gruesome ways, including beheading. Indy uses a whip frequently. Henry is shot at point-blank range and almost bleeds to death. Lots of peril. Threat of fire and drowning. At one point, other characters briefly think a main character has died. A bad guy meets his end in a scene that could disturb younger viewers (potential spoiler alert: he ages extremely rapidly and briefly becomes a dessicated, mummy-like being before disintegrating).
- Language includes "damn," "my God," and "Jesus Christ" (as an exclamation).
- Social Behavior
- Ingenuity, teamwork, and trying to do the right thing are ultimately rewarded, although some of Indy's methods are iffy. Standing up to bullies (in the form of the Nazi party) is a strong theme. The power of a father-son relationship is explored and emphasized.
- Not applicable
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- A character lights a cigarette (accurate for the era). Indy and another character have champagne; later, Indy has a cocktail.
