I applaud SpenceEdit for making this film more palatable. However it still stinks. No edit can change the laughable direction, horrible scripting, or godawful lighting in this movie. If this flick wasn’t a sequel, the consensus would be “zero out of ten.” Its plot borders on complete illogic, the audience has no reason to care about anything, the gratuitous callbacks are unfounded, the action has no danger, and the dialogue is anything but natural. People said Temple of Doom was racist, well this film has “natives” jumping up & down and jabbering like monkeys. Indy has been wearing the same clothes for 30 years, though they look new and clean and fit for an old man. If that’s a metaphor for this movie then I’m being generous.

Tldr. Even if the bones are ok, the meat of this film is diseased and to consume it invites illness.
