Nazis beware submitted by Flying Sheep on August 24, 2011, 4:09pm Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark is an exciting pilot for the awesome series. It involves religious history while featuring a colledge professor fighting Nazis in WWII. With lots of excitment and combat, Indiana Jones and the Raiders fo the Lost Ark is a must see.

Classic submitted by crazypockets on July 12, 2013, 4:54pm ...but not my favorite of the franchise. I think as kids my friends and I thought this was the most boring one. I think it really is more for adults (plus the whole melting Nazi thing is really kind of terrifying...) than the other ones, but it's still good and a classic.

Classic submitted by rlmorgan on July 19, 2013, 8:56pm A good, classic, adventure film. One of the most grown up of the Indiana Jones movies.

Raiders of the Lost Ark submitted by SBNB on August 7, 2018, 8:53pm It's a classic, but I thought it was rather boring. Not as boring as the second one though.

A fun movie submitted by yufamily on August 25, 2019, 7:37pm Harrison Ford is great as Indiana Jones!

Action Classic submitted by Meginator on August 20, 2020, 12:48am Content Warning: The climactic scene includes some gore and an animal is killed (offscreen, in a nonviolent manner).

This film is a genre classic for a reason, with well-realized characters and a series of iconic action sequences that have had a lasting influence on filmmaking. Harrison Ford plays Jones to droll perfection and Karen Allen portrays a (relatively) progressive female character, Marion Ravenwood, who is more than just his romantic foil. The film incorporates a nice variety of action scenes, including fights, chases, explosions, and all manner of dramatic escapes, and they make sense within the shape of the plot; though some are now cinematic clich├ęs, they work so well in context that it hardly matters. From a strong script to solid acting and dramatic stunts, this is an action classic that consistently fires on all cylinders from beginning to end. Few films have ever found a balance as well as this one does.
