The Adventures of Tintin (2011)

While this was a modest hit back in the day, it did not receive the attention it deserved. And that's rather sad, because this is in fact Indiana Jones 4.

Now, you might argue that there was already another film called Indiana Jones 4, but if so, you would be mistaken. That Kingdom of the Crystal Skull shit was NOT an Indy film! The list of things wrong with that trash is too long to mention, but suffice to say that it featured none of the spirit of the other Indy films, and came off more as a mockbuster.

However, everything that was wrong with Crystal Skull, is RIGHT with Tintin. This film is funny and exciting and action-filled, with great characters, snappy dialogue and marvelous locations, making it pretty much the perfect adventure flick.

The similarities to Indy are also there in abundance, so much so, that changing the main character's name, would actually be the only thing required to make it an official Indy film. So if you just pretend Indy used to be called Tintin in his 20s, you'll be delighted to relive the excitement of Raiders of the Lost Ark once again.
