â€śThe name is Jones. Indiana Jones.â€ť
Everyoneâ€™s favorite globe-trotting, tomb-raiding,
wisecracking archaeologist is finally at it againâ€“hurtling
headfirst into high adventure and relying on his wits, his
fists, and his trusty bullwhip to get him out of deep
trouble. But the man in the jaunty brown fedora and
battered leather jacket is no ordinary digger in the dirt.
From the fabled lost Ark of the Covenant to the legendary
Holy Grail, heâ€™s salvaged the worldâ€™s most amazing
artifacts, while beating the baddest villains and defying
the most breathtaking odds.
Now itâ€™s 1957, the
atomic age is in full swing, and McCarthy-era paranoia has
the nation on edge. But for Indiana Jones, the Cold
War really heats up when his latest expedition is crashed
by a ruthless squad of Russian soldiers. Commanded by a
sword-wielding colonel whoâ€™s as sinister as she is
stunning, the menacing Reds drag an unwilling Indy along
as they brazenly invade American soil, massacre U.S.
soldiers, and plunder a top-secret government warehouse.
Their objective: a relic even more preciousâ€“and powerfulâ€“
than the mythic Ark, capable of unlocking secrets beyond
Fast thinking and some high-
speed maneuvers help Jones turn the tables, and a one-in-a-
million escape narrowly saves him from certain death. But
when heâ€™s tarred as a suspected spy and fired by his
university, Indy thinks it may be time to hang up his hat.
Fate, however, has other plans. Suddenly the road
to retirement takes a sharp detour when a colleagueâ€™s
kidnapping leads Jones into the depths of the Amazon
jungle on a desperate rescue mission. With a hot-headed
teenage biker as his unlikely wing man and his vengeful
new Russian nemesis waiting for a rematch, Indyâ€™s back in
the gameâ€“playing for a prize all the wonders of the world
could never rival.
