I didn't like this film.
I'm not going to spend much time on this as I am obviously in a massive minority by not liking it. It's taken me 20 years to finally see this film through to the end.

It just bores me completely. It's a part James Bond film, which I've never had any time for. It doesn't seem any better than the 'Mummy' or 'Tomb Raider' type films (ZZZZZZ) where the dialogue is largely incidental & which you can watch with the volume turned down and still follow. They generally concern some pre-historic torch, urn, key, lump of dog turd, that has special powers, that the hero needs to get his hands on & that just doesn't make for an interesting film.

I just cannot get into films like this & never have any interests whether they achieve what they're after. In this there were a lot of scenes which seemed to be filling in time. First the Nazi's had the initiative, then Jones, then back to the Nazi's again and this went on & on & on, to the point that it wasn't dis-similar from a Steven Seagal or Van Damme film. Apart from the obvious superior quality of acting in this, the fighting scenes were sometimes laughable.

Karen Allen threw in some incredibly wooden acting in her cliched lines she was given. The "I'm your partner" was almost cringe making.

There seems an unwritten rule that you are not allowed to comment on Raiders of the Lost Ark without mentioning Star Wars for some reason. So I love Harrison Ford films, I like George Lucas & certainly don't dislike Spielberg. Thus, I have Star Wars as one of only a dozen films in my list at 10/10, it's almost perfect. I myself, wouldn't mention this in the same breath as Star Wars. You immediately feel a part of Star Wars & it's wonderful characters, neither of which apply here.

This film has never taken off in England to the extent it has done in the US. I know plenty of adults who've never seen it & many who are not mad over it.

But I'll admit I've never found anyone who genuinely dislikes it. Apart from me!

The Standard For Action/Adventure
I've probably seen "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" as many times as any other movie I've ever watched in my life. Each year or two from age 12 or so now to age 31, I've sat down and enjoyed this film. The amazing thing about it? It never seems to get old!

For a basic plot summary, "Raiders" sees archaeology professor Dr. Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) getting a tip that the Nazis are digging at the supposed place of the long-lost Ark of the Covenant. Armed with his trusty whip, adventurer's cap, leather jacket, and journal of clues, Indy rushes to Cairo for perhaps the greatest "find" of his life. Along the way, he meets up with old flame Marion (Karen Allen), as well as getting himself both in and out of numerous dramatic scrapes.

Almost without a doubt, "Raiders" set the standard to which action/adventure movies are now held. The music is eternal, the scale is large, and the action is always moving ahead despite still being able to support interesting characters/dialogue. Only helping matters is the fact that Ford is perfectly cast as Indy, creating what is at least in the conversation for most iconic film role of all-time. From the very first time you see Indy, you know that this guy is an adventurer through and through. It's tough to have such a visceral connection to a character without any background, but director Steven Spielberg makes it seem effortless.

I could go on and on about why "Raiders" is such a great film (both technically and culturally), but I'll suffice it to say that some 36 years after its initial theatrical release it still remains not only a classic in the "stuffy" sense, but also a movie that new viewers of today can appreciate just as much. People 36 years from now will be saying the same things...I'm sure of it!
Another cultural scandal - Sub-merge controversy cut
Just watched this classic again after a long while. This time a blue-ray release. Some idiot has cut away the wonderful "submarine diving while Indy on deck" - scene. Somebody should rot in Hell... I'm not absolutely sure if anything else has been altered but I had some kind of weird feeling through the earlier stages of the movie that everything wasn't as it should have been. The submarine scene-cutting however was a dead giveaway. Isn't anything sacred in this world? Has Spielberg developed alzheimers? Shame! Shame! Shame!
There will never be another film like Raiders
It is a hot sunny day in South America. We see a bunch of men, shot mostly from the back. They are walking deep into the forest. We see a tall dark figure. He is wearing an old leather jacket, he has the 5 o'clock shadow looking like it's closer to midnight, he wears a fedora and he carries a bull-whip ( yes a bull-whip ). Finally, two of the men enter a cave and we hear about some guy named Forstall, who was good, very, very good, but he never came out of the place alive. But they enter anyway. They are confronted with tarantulas, spears that are triggered by blocking out the light, a pit that they must swing over and then more tiny poisonous darts that come out of the wall. All this to protect an ancient gold statue. They recover it. One guy dies and the other barely makes it out of the room before it all falls on him. Then he has to get out of the cave and a giant boulder chases him. Finally he makes it out of the cave only to be surrounded by Hovitos and his arch enemy named Belloq. He takes the gold statue that this guy worked so hard for and then the guy runs and makes it to the plane where he is in the passenger seat and there is big snake in the plane. He hates snakes. This mans name? Indiana Jones!

Whhhoooooo!! I'm left breathless just describing that opening. But is there a better beginning of a movie ever? Absolutely not. Does the beginning have anything to do with the rest of the film. No. It is all decoration for what the movie is going to put you through in the 90 minutes to come.

Indiana Jones is the best character to ever hit the screens. And he better be. He is created by George, Steven and played by Harrison Ford. That may seem normal now that we have lived with him for 20 years, but can you imagine what that must have been like back in 1981. That would be like Tom Hanks or Will Smith joining forces with James Cameron and Steven Spielberg for a completely original idea in today's terms.

Raiders took a simple idea and maybe an idea that the guys had from watching Saturday afternoon movies and made it larger than life. This film never stops for you to take your breath. It is filled with rich characters from Indy himself to Marion to Belloq and even to Marcus Brody. Each has their own personality that shines through in certain scenes. Some of my faves were when we first meet Marion having a shot contest in her bar in Nepal. Then there is her scene with Belloq and they get drunk together and she tries to leave using only a butter knife. And of course who can forget Indy's battle with the swordsman and his unrivaled determination to get the ark. " Indy, there is not time. If you still want the truck it is being loaded on a truck for Cairo. " ( a battered and bloody Indy ) " Truck? What truck?" ( and then later ) "Get some transport back to England, boat, plane, anything. Meet me at Omar's. I'm going after that truck. "

Sola ) " How? " ( Indy ) I don't know I'm making this up as I go."

Raiders has more energy than three action films. And that is what makes it the classic that it is. If you like movies, then Raiders is a movie that will not let you down. It is pure entertainment and that is indisputable. It finds the youngster in all of us and bombards us with this silly, whip-cracking, average, incredibly determined archaeologist and only asks us to have fun. And that we do. And to me, the only reason that Chariots of Fire won best picture that year is because it is a serious film. Raiders was heads and shoulders above Chariots and it should have cleaned up at the Oscars in 81. But more politics with the academy.

Raiders of the Lost Ark is the epitome of entertainment. What more can be said about it. If you haven't seen this movie in a while or if you haven't seen it at all ( gasp ) then do yourself a favour and rent it tonight. It is awesome.

It's not the years, it's the mileage
There are critics who point their fingers at Raiders - and Jaws, and Star Wars - because, regardless of their quality, they kickstarted the new wave of setpiece-focused blockbusters, with a detrimental effect on Hollywood. Fact is, Raiders is no more responsible for The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor than J.R.R. Tolkien is to blame for The Sword of Truth, Bram Stoker for Twilight, or Isaac Asimov for Transformers.

There is a main reason which makes Raiders a timeless masterpiece of adventure cinema and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull a piece of garbage: RESTRAINT.

Consider the elegance of action scenes. Spielberg's setpieces here are stylish, kinetic, with attention to spatial relationships, cause and effect. Every action by the hero has a direct result on his surroundings, and vice versa (see the legendary prologue, the iconic truck scene). Practical effects and stunts allow for a realistic, gritty feel... which goes down the drain with stupidly absurd acrobatics and a frame cluttered by CGI stuff (hello, Star Wars prequels!).

In Raiders, Indy gets dusty, bloody, beaten up: every battle takes a PHYSICAL TOLL on him - much like on John McClane in the first Die Hard (while in the last ones he is essentially a superhero, which DEFIES THE WHOLE POINT of it). If action has visible consequences, a sense of weight, it's automatically compelling. On the other hand, show the hero slamming on a hard surface after a fifty feet fall and walking away without a bruise (hello, Hobbit trilogy!), and everything INSTANTLY becomes boring.

And then we have the "Grandpa Syndrome", which pushes aged directors to film movies their grandchildren "can watch too" - laudable for family comedies, often disastrous for other genres (hello, monkeys and groundhogs in Skull, and Greedo shooting first!).

Restraint extends to the plot too. Everything is trimmed down, elegantly simple. A clear goal (find the Ark). High stakes (if Nazis find it first, they will gain terrible powers). Non-stop tension: Indy and Marion are constantly chased, on the run, at disadvantage, out of time - much like Han and Leia in Empire, and unlike in the SW prequels. Every scene advances the plot, every dialogue defines characters. Not a single frame or line is wasted. No pointless secondary figures (hello, Mac and Dexter Jettster and Tauriel!).

Of course, kudos to the fantastic script by Kasdan, with its endless quotable lines and the most wickedly ironic ending in action cinema; to Ford's charismatic turn - as a teen, I was convinced that between this, Blade Runner, Star Wars, Witness and The Fugitive, he could only make great movies... until Six Days Seven Nights; to John Williams' soundtrack, which is the stuff of legends.

A classic all directors and scriptwriters should revisit before inflating their blockbusters with useless bloat. Tight, muscular Raiders works as well now as it did 30 years ago... while Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Attack of the Clones, The Desolation of Smaug and A Good Day to Die Hard feel already stale.

Cheesy escapist fun. Very cheesy, very escapist, not that much fun.
This film is a product of its time and some of the things are very advanced (for its time), so I can't give it a very low score. A lot of the things are very well done, better than some movies in this day and age.

Having said that, the story isn't that much interesting. It's just a series of events, action after action, hiding then running, chasing then being chased, fighting then escaping, just random stuff.

The action is fun, but it gets boring after a while. The theme song repeating 12+ times in the span of two hours is pushing it. I had often wondered why the song was so memorable and how so many people remembered it. It is catchy, but the fact that it loops makes it stick in your head.

I don't understand the target demographic for this. There are murders, a man's head getting blendered by a propeller, people being burned alive and other things that is not really appropriate for children, yet this film has a PG rating. It's too childish for adults but too scary/gory for children.

The first scene (the idol) is also forgotten very quickly. He tries to get an idol from the jungle, it gets stolen, and that's about it.

Parents of young children, watch out, there are graphic deaths in this film. Adults, watch out, this is a very childish film that gets boring and repetitive after a while.
One of the greatest action movies ever made
Some of the most memorable and most referenced scenes and sequences were immortalised by this triumph in film-making. Indiana Jones is a superbly crafted and superbly portrayed character in this classic action flick that deserves its reputation and love among fans of film.

Right, now I've said that, I'd like to get to the real reason I'm writing this review. I am getting thoroughly frustrated and annoyed by all the tedious people pointing out the "gaping plot-hole" that supposedly resides in this movie's story. This apparent "flaw" goes something along the lines of (cue whiny and irritating nerd voice): "Indiana Jones is irrelevant to the story. If he wasn't in it the movie would pan out in exactly the same way." And occasionally people would add: "He adds nothing to the movie"; "You can't consider him a hero".

Shut the f*ck up, all of you!

While it can definitely be argued that if Harrison Ford's whip-wielding, gun-toting, lovable adventurer were taken out of the story, the movie would still end with (spoiler alert, everyone) the Nazis opening the Ark of the Covenant and all being killed, but how people conclude that that makes Indiana Jones an inessential asset to the movie is frankly idiotic.

If it weren't for Indy's presence throughout each scene, what would this movie be? It would essentially be just a documentary about a Nazi excavation team searching for an ancient religious artifact and then all dying (except it wouldn't actually be a documentary because it never f*cking happened). There would be no conflict or tension because all the characters would be the Nazis and wouldn't do anything interesting (at least, not until September 1939). Thematically, Indy is in nearly every scene of the film because, funnily enough, he is the main character and we are seeing the story play out through his eyes and from his experiences. He's the one to root for in the story. He's the character the audience likes and wants to see come out the other end of the story victorious. Who would you root for without him? None of the other protagonists would even be there if it weren't for Jones and don't say you'd be rooting for the Nazis because of obvious f*cking reasons.

Aside from him being the inadvertent story-teller, he's also the cause of nearly every great f*cking scene. What would the movie be without the giant boulder chase, the fist fight by the aeroplane or the frankly brilliant scene where Indy shoots his way out of getting into a sword fight. People must realise that without Indy this movie would be about ten minutes long, not to mention without its iconic charm and straight up fun.

So Indiana's absence from the film does take something from this masterpiece; about 95% of it to be honest. I honestly believe that (and I can feel hate coming my way for making this accusation) the only people who give a f*ck over this moronic and non-existent plot-hole are the people who get agitated when film-makers diverge from the norm of film-making, as if that's too much for them to comprehend. "No I'll stick to what I know, what I'm comfortable with already". Just because a film doesn't involve a main character with the same kind of impact to a film that's been used in media countless times before does not mean it should be criticised.

Above all stop calling this minute detail a "plot-hole". It's not one. A plot-hole is something that causes the plot to be inconsistent or contradictory or just simply events that wouldn't ever happen. And to all those people who don't consider it a plot-hole, stop pointing it out anyway and just enjoy the f*cking film, because it's actually really good.
Huge Raiders Fan
Well, I wasn't born when this movie came out in 1981. I've watched it with my dad and the movie completely blew my mind. Harrison Ford is one of my favorite actors in this franchise. I also love the musical score by John Williams and of course the theme song. I watched the film a million times. I love all the action scenes and the special effects. I wish I had a fedora hat just like Indy. I have the entire DVD collection of Indiana Jones. Indiana Jones rules!!!
No Ordinary Archaeologist
Hired to stop the Nazis getting hold of a priceless biblical artifact, a 1930s archaeologist has to combat swordsmen, sadistic Germans... and a pathological fear of snakes in this popular adventure film that brought the character of Indiana Jones to screens. The film begins strongly with a thrilling sequence in which Indy has to make his way through booby traps galore in a tomb, and while nothing later on quite matches this tension, there are several exciting moments to be had with a multi-tonal John Williams score perfectly complementing the action. This is hardly a deep or meaningful film, the antagonists range from one-note to one-dimensional and as a character, Indy lacks the charisma of an action hero like James Bond. The attempts to paint Indy as an ordinary university professor who just enjoys adventures never quite gels either since he is more agile and better at close combat than the very best of MI6. All that said and done, 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' is a film full of memorable small moments and there are several excellent artistic shots throughout, most notably some diggers against an orange sunset and Harrison Ford viewed as only a shadow against a wall when first meeting Karen Allen. A supernatural twist near the end also takes the film in some unexpected directions and the iconic final shot of the film makes for a fantastic final note to end on.
The first installment of the iconic explorer
This was a very masterful, imaginative movie that will bring out the childlike hearts out of adults. The main protagonist Indiana Jones is played by Harrison Ford, I will just say that Ford is Indiana Jones. They first tried to cast Tom Selleck for this role but I am very glad that Harrison Ford played Indy instead. This is a film that inspired many filmmakers and video game creators by trying to recreate adventurous protagonists that goes on explorations. This film doesn't just have a iconic protagonist but many iconic scenes that is actually very memorable. Many kids tried to copy Indy and wanted to be Indy, because he is such a cool, charismatic, heroic and adventurous badass who is irresistible to women. He is more of a likable hero than James Bond and isn't a misogynist. Instead Indy is a true archaeologist at heart that loves history and does his best to preserve priceless artifacts for the future instead of personal gain. In another words, he is a role model that kids could look up to. So I couldn't help but root for the guy through his ordeals. The cinematography and set pieces is immersive and really does have the energy and pacing that will absorb audiences into the whole experience. It was even nominated for academy awards and actually won few of them. I will say again the set pieces really does elevate the action sequences. And the action is a blast to sit through and even adds the right amount of humor during certain parts. Films like this shows that the story doesn't have to be overly complex and has a lot of depth to it to make it classic. This is a solid entertainment blockbuster that excels in almost every area.
