Why did the entire bridge fall in Temple of Doom
Jones only cut one rope spanning the river.

One should have remained.

Also, why weren't there Thuggee shooting arrows from the side Jones, Shorty and Willie fell to?

They just didn’t bother showing you Indy spinning around and cutting the other side. He cut the bridge, it fell, you get the gist.

re: Why did the entire bridge fall in Temple of Doom
Why not just cut the bridge from both sides when Indy was surrounded? It's clear that Indy would have died from the fall, and they could just retrieve the stone right after. It's even mentioned that the stone would be found, but Indy would not be found. Why even bother surrounding him on the bridge?

Bigger question.

How does a pool raft break your fall from 20,000 feet?

Because of 5-foot surface area?

Rubber?

A football field would need a parachute dropped into India.

But that's why the movie is so much fun, it's total nonsense and tongue in cheek...unlike Crysal fricking Skull that treated it like a real Indy movie.

Willie: And I hate YOU!

Indy: Good!

Indy(again): Good!

That second good always bugged me. It showed me Willie made him melt. Not a good look Doctuh Jones..

Yes, but all the pressure would be on the remaining rope, which snapped. Of course, it should have spun out first, relieving itself of the pressure, but that's a different point.

Because they don't have an angle to shoot downward and slightly backwards? have you ever been on the edge of a cliff and tried to hold a bow and arrow facing downwards and slightly backwards?

Because its a lot easier to get it from him now, up there, than to have to slog around down below with the Crocodile's to find it? Would you rather I hand you a precious thing or throw it into a river with crocodiles?
