As far as adventure stories, the original Star Wars is #2 - Raiders is #1, even now, nearly 35 years later... It's got it all in spades - adventure, romance, archaeology, religion, societal and cultural effects on behavior, revenge, politics, grisly death, campy fun, and some nonsensical stuff, too, just for good measure. A classic that is definitely a "must-see"!

I know it's a little old now, but it's a great movie - and one both the kids and the adults can enjoy. I am giving it 5 stars because it is a great movie, but confess I do like the sequel (with Sean Connery) a little better.
The "snake scene" was my favorite because, like Indiana Jones, "I hate snakes!"

When Star Wars' George Lucas and Jaws' Steven Spielberg get together to make a movie like the classic Sunday-morning serials, you get one of the great movies of the 20th century. It was robbed of the best picture Oscar that year by the semi-decent but far more "politically correct" biography of "Gandhi" (and I LOVE the Mahatma!). ROBBED, I say! Harrison Ford isn't a super-adept action hero and as a result (like barefoot and bleeding Bruce Willis in the original "Die Hard"), makes his iconic Indy character far more relatable than it might have otherwise been. He's a nerdy professor who turns into The one and only Doctor Jones.

Snakes. Why did it have to be SNAKES?!

One of the best action adventure movies ever! Once you start this movie you will not be able to stop.

THE classic adventure movie that still sets the standard! Harrison Ford really showed his leading man potential with this entire series.

This 1981 gem has just as much dynamic action and holds the viewer from start to finish as it did on its initial release. The storyline had unique twists and turns to the actual historical events that occurred during this time in world history. One that will capture your heart and have you rooting for Indy to come out on top, Raiders of the Lost Ark is a must see Hollywood Classic.

the story is fresh and exciting even though i have seen it many times. I opened a new story telling perspective like the first Star Wars and is genuinely entertaining without all the computer graphics that dominate today's adventure films. Just plain fun to watch.
