Quite true. That guy who's name I cannot remember as well...what a waste of screentime he was! Blanchett's villain was poorly acted (sorry, fans of her). I enjoyed seeing Karen Allen again, but her being there lead to more hokey stuff in that horrid chase through the jungle.

It's a toss-up between Temple of Doom and Crystal Skull. They both come off WAY more hokey than the other two. Just my taste I suppose.
