Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark ★★★

Welcome to Spielbergland! Abounding with glorious practical effects and character dynamics making you always wonder who's an ally and who's not but also comprising the terribly German-speaking German army of papier-mâché dummies, grunting 'oohs' and 'aahs' upon death, without making the viewer doubt the success of the main character's journey.
