Reviews
Mine: Great stuff. As much fun as anyone has ever had at the movies. Ford is great!
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A roller-coaster ride of a movie, rekindling the spirit of Saturday matinee serials but outdoing them for genuine thrills and chills. Ford plays Indiana Jones, an archeologist-adventurer who goes globe-trotting in search of a unique religious artifact and runs into bloodcurdling danger every step of the way. Perhaps a bit too much at times, but why carp? Conceived by Spielberg and George Lucas, with Philip Kaufman; scripted by Lawrence Kasdan. Visual effects, editing, sound effects editing, and art direction-set decoration all earned Oscars. Followed by two INDIANA JONES films and TV series The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles. Panavision.

This is an AWESOME adventure film with LOTS of everything. It's one of my favorite, all-time movies and I can still watch it with amazement each time. Harrison Ford is not too hard on the eyes either.
