Indiana Jones 5 receives tepid ovation at Cannes, gets early mixed reviews

“Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny,” the fifth installment in the classic movie series that received attention from some conservatives for including some supposedly woke material, received a “lukewarm” ovation at Cannes, according to a recent report.

“Yes, the applause lasted for five minutes, but by Cannes standards, that’s more of a polite formality,” the Variety report continued.

That was in stark contrast with Harrison Ford’s entrance to Cannes, the famous French film festival, as he was greeted with “thousands of fans” screaming his name and even a short montage of his film career, according to Variety. One of the biggest film stars of all time, Ford has starred in the “Star Wars” franchise, “Blade Runner,” “The Fugitive,” “Witness,” “Air Force One,” and dozens of other movies.

Vanity Fair critic Richard Lawson concluded that the latest “Indiana Jones” film was “not worthy of the whip.” 

“One can feel the four credited screenwriters grasping at inspiration and coming up short. What they did manage to make would be perfectly fine as a standalone adventure film starring some other character, but it’s not worthy of the whip.”

Ford has said that the “Dial of Destiny” will be his last time playing the character.
