The fifth (and hopefully last?) Indy flick finds our intrepid hero in 1969, on the hunt for a nifty little time-travel gadget that, naturally, the Nazis can’t wait to get their hands on. (Yes, there are still Nazis around to torment Indy, even in the late 60s.) Phoebe Waller-Bridge holds her own as Indy’s swashbuckling partner, and though the movie is entertaining enough, the absence of Spielberg in the director’s chair is palpable. Director James Mangold (‘Ford v Ferrari’) certainly tries his best, but there’s no substitute for the real thing. Plus, at 154 minutes, ‘Dial’ is easily the longest of the series, and you certainly start to feel it as it goes on… and on.

3.5/5 stars
