, Indiana (PressExposure) May 01, 2009 -- Who can you think of that handles a bullwhip better? Or do you know anyone who looks more natural in the classic leather fedora? Now, this same man, or legend, is also afraid of snakes. He's the one who on occasion has to wipe the cobwebs from his leather jacket but not because of a lack of use. He seems to find himself in those tight places, the places between a rock and a hard place. Now you probably know who I'm talking about but if not, who else has a theme song written by world-famous film-composer, John Williams?
Indiana Jones is that hero that knows how to go up against the Nazis or bloodthirsty cultists. He's not a superhero, he's a man with determination. Indy is that kind of hero we all know we could be like if we were just a little bit stronger or adventurous. His fear of snakes is certainly understandable because he's a human just like the rest of us. He hurts when he gets punched or when he jumps off the side of a truck but what courage! He's our kind of hero. He became the champion of the Jewish faith's Ark of the Covenant in courageous heart-stopping style. He also showed he has a soft spot in his heart for children when he saves so many in the Temple of Doom amidst the boldest of thrills.
Of course we would like to see a lot more of Indiana Jones. His last adventure, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was quite a ride. Indy goes up against Soviet agents during the cold war of the 50s. Indiana has certainly met his match in the Russian scientist, Irina Spalko, who is a scavenger of paranormal artifacts, like those Nazi's from previous stories. The Reds were fighting Indiana to be the first to possess the power of the Crystal Skull discovered in South America by a long-time cohort of Indy's. There's no way Indiana Jones will allow the Russians to gain the power and control every one's mind with the crystal skull. It will once again, be up to Indy to save the day. Of course we are able to learn of Indiana's vine swinging son, Mutt Williams, who seems to be the spitting image of our adventurous hero. Car chases through the jungle, attacks from gigantic ants, and cliff-flirting sword fighting are exactly the kind of thing you would expect from the most adventurous archeologist ever. Talk about pure entertainment!
Will we see more of Indiana Jones in the future? We all hope so. What could be next? Maybe there's a chance that Indy goes up against the Chinese Red Army during the 50s. Who knows? It would be interesting to see our hero in East Berlin or maybe in modern day Iraq or Iran. No matter what happens next we all know Indiana Jones is more than capable of winning if he has his bullwhip and is still wearing that magical fedora.
