: Interesting topic - but I disagree...Rick wasn't nearly as compelling as Indy was in ROTLA. I don't think Rick is as complex; we know nothing about him, he's just there!
: Indy has this wonderful backstory that's alluded to with Marion's reaction, and his relationship with Marcus and Belloq. I just don't get a sense of that...
: In terms of popularity, you don't see anyone trying to hunt down O'Connell gear which has been happening in the Indy world ever since Day 1...Rock O'Connell just seems like a bad reflection of Indy...
: But hey, that's just MY opinion!
I think that's because the first one was a remake of a classic- they had an obligation to direct more attention to the mummy and basic storyline rather than the hero. This next one should be a lot better with a ton of action, a kid sidekick(ToD), and probably a little more in depth with the characters since they already got the mummy story out of the way.
