Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark ★★★★★

Simply put, this film is the action-adventure film that all other films in its genre should aspire to be
It has all the elements of a film in its genre: Humor, a badass and iconic protagonist, awesome set pieces, an extremely interesting treasure, and an antagonist that you absolutely hate to see win
On a technical level, it’s a marvel
The use is lighting littered throughout the film is marvelous, and when lighting finally comes into play it’s a big pay off
The introduction to such a legendary character is done effortlessly by Spielberg, throwing the viewer right into the action and right next to Harrison Ford as he portrays what may be the most iconic movie character ever
John Williams killed the score, and I’m sure to be humming the theme song for the next week and a half
I forgot how gruesome this movie was at times,especially  in the closing moments
I could go on for a while about this film, but here’s what you need to know in a short summary:

Raiders of the Lost Ark is one of the most entertaining movies to ever be made, and Indiana Jones is one of the coolest characters to ever hit the big screen, and this movie doesn’t have a dull scene in it

Just another reason why Spielberg is the GOAT
