: One of the things I appreciate most about the Indy movies is that the highest rating they've ever gotten was PG-13. Being fifteen, I appreciate that they arent' R-rated. All the sex innuendos were apparently tame enough for kids, we didn't see any bodies get crushed, we see vehicles, buildings etc blown up but not necessarily the people inside them bieng blown up, no large amounts of blood when someone got shot or something but just enough to let you know that the character had been hit or shot that hard, there is almost no profanity to speak of unlike John McCLane from Die Hard or some of the other raunchier action heroes, and there is always time for humor to help lighten the atmosphere. I think all these things are in no way conservative or wussy or whatever other people may think; in fact, they help the movies present the story and people in a way acceptable for fans of all ages. Pray that Indy IV is at the most a PG-13 (gut feeling tells me it probably will be a PG-13). Keep up the good work, everyone affiliated with the Indy movies.
There were a few scary parts for me when I saw the tree movies for the first time. Like: the death Satipo, when they open the Ark at the end of Raiders, the sacrifces in Doom and Donovan's death. But that was a long time ago. Now I just enjoy those parts and I think that the movies are for all ages.
