INDIANA JONES AND THE DIAL OF DESTINY First Reviews Promise A Fitting Send-Off For The Iconic Hero

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny just had its world premiere at Cannes, and, for the most part, the first reactions have been very positive. Check out some verdicts right here...

James Mangold's Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this evening, and the first social media reactions (along with several full reviews) were shared online shortly after.

The movie was reportedly given a 5-minute standing ovation when the credits rolled, and, for the most part, the positive reception is reflected in these first verdicts - although it's worth noting that not everyone was won over.

Even so, The Dial of Destiny is being hailed as a fitting send-off for the legendary archaeologist/adventurer, and star Harrison Ford's performance is coming in for a lot of praise.

Total Film awarded the movie 4 stars, calling it "a terrific thrill ride. With Ford in fine form, Indy’s last stand is a highly satisfying blend of action, humour and emotion."

The South China Morning Post were similarly impressed, concluding their 4-star review with: "With some throwbacks (including an underused John Rhys-Davies), Dial of Destiny feels like an old-school Indy romp, more so than 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, as it tries to capture the rollicking spirit of the originals."

Empire gave another 4-star write-up, but mentioned that the ending will likely be divisive: "Indy’s final date with destiny has a barmy finale that might divide audiences — but if you join him for the ride, it feels like a fitting goodbye to cinema’s favourite grave-robber."

The Irish Times were not quite so impressed, although they did award an average 3 stars: "Nobody with a brain in their heads will compare Dial of Destiny favourably to the first three films. There is a sense throughout of a project struggling to stand beneath the weight of its history."
