Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark ★★★★½

Between a rolling rock and an exit. The fiery bar fight. Bringing a gun to a sword fight. The marketplace chase. Bad dates. Why did it have to be snakes?? The coat hanger. The tomb. The airplane fight. Kicking some serious butt while driving a truck. Kissing what doesn't hurt. Uniforms that don't fit. Opening the ark. Raiders of the Lost Ark remains one of the very best action/adventure films of all time. The John Williams score is iconic, Ronald Lacey is unforgettable in his small role as the creepy glasses wearing Nazi, John Rhys-Davies is such a lovable support character, Harrison Ford is the perfect lead, some of the action such as that truck fight and the battle around the spinning airplane are brilliant, and the ending is one for the ages. Easily the best entry in the series and a must watch for all action/adventure fans.
