In the truck chase scene, Indy could have driven it to Omar's and the Germans could have been outnumbered.
In the basket scene, they used a fake basket as a decoy.
: In Raiders of the Lost Ark, during the truck chase, the German soldiers try to stop Indy by climbing on the sides and climbing in. First of all, what's wrong with climbing on the roof (like the sergeant does)? Secondly, why are they doing this? Why don't they just stay in the truck? Indy will have to stop sometime and get the Ark. Then, they can shoot Indy.
: OTHER STUFF
: *How do the kids in Temple of Doom get out of the temple without going through the spike death trap or the bug room?
: *Why do the Nazis in Raiders place the fake basket in a truck full of dynamite? (Answer: To make a big boom-boom!)
: *Why does the German Commander in Raiders appear to have an English accent for the most part? And really, would a die-hard Nazi really participate in any Hebrew ritual no matter what Belloq said?
: *And finally, is it just me or does Last Crusade contain several James Bond references? 1: The Rats. In "From Russia With Love", rats pop up in an underground tunnel. 2: The Airplane Scene. Bears a small resemblance to the helicopter scene in the same Bond movie. 3: The Motorcycle Scene. Feels like the motorcycle scene in "Diamonds Are Forever".
: PLEASE RESPOND!
: Gobler, the German assistant.
: What happens to him anyway?
