Critics Reviews

Variety
Spielberg has deftly veiled proceedings in a sense of mystical wonder that makes it all the more easy for viewers to suspend disbelief and settle back for the fun.

TV Guide
Ford's performance is an underrated but remarkable achievement; he succeeds in fully embodying a comic-book style hero without ever descending into camp.

Awesome movie. One of the best till date. Full of action from start till end. Story never looses the grip. Work of art by Speilberg and Lucas.

This movie is nothing short of pure, action packed fun. George Lucas and Steven Spielberg have outdone themselves. There is plenty of action, great acting (Harrison Ford always delivers the goods), and a strong story. What I love...

full of effects
maybe it's a boy's movie and that's why i didn't like it so much. i thought it had too many special effects and was just over-the-top. but i guess it's a nice adventure film...

fun :-)
when i was a child i saw this movie and the scene where the Nazis open the ark scared the hell out of me. for that reason more than 15 years went by before i was willing to try and see the movie again... but i'm glad i did so, because i enjoyed it...
