Kingdom of the Crystal Skull gets roasted by hilariously honest trailer

The Indiana Jones franchise boasts some of the most entertaining action sequences in cinematic history, and it does it all with a wink and a smile. Then there is its last iteration, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which has none of the above. It deserves to be mocked—and the gang from Honest Trailers have finally done their solemn duty.

Why were there aliens in Crystal Skull? There had never been aliens before in the Indiana Jones movies. What's with all the cheap-looking CGI when the franchise is known for its stellar practical effects? Why is Shia LaBeouf's nickname "Mutt"? Why is he in this movie at all?

So many questions that will never be properly answered. Thankfully, Honest Trailers gives us the next best thing—a video making fun of the whole affair.

Now if you'll excuse us, we're going to go hide from the nuclear fallout from this movie in our refrigerators.
