    "The movie that decided the fate of the Indiana Jones franchise is none other than this Raiders of the Lost Ark. In my opinion, this movie is the best fantasy/adventure films of all time. Harrison Ford played the lead role perfectly that I don't think anyone could replace him as Indian Jones. I've watched Solo: A Star Wars Story and the new actor there did a great rendition of the Han Solo we loved. I just simply don't think anyone could be Indiana Jones. So you can have all the new Indiana-Jones wannabe, let me have Harrison Ford and let me watch him over and over and over and over."

    "When I was a child I would watch the Indiana Jones movies all the time. Raiders of the Lost Ark is not only mine, but possibly the worlds, favorite installment in the series. I always engrossed myself in the movie. pretending to go on a great adventure to search for the Lost Ark, fighting Nazi's, and overall just being a very resourceful person. I watched it as a kid and I think you should let your kids watch it too."

    "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark is part of the Indiana Jones franchise that Spielberg has directed in an action pack way. Harrison Ford teams up with creator George Lucas again and comes up with a hit as we go along on an adventurer to locate the Ark of the Covenant. There will be many obstacles and challenges along the way as Ford races against the Nazi's to see who can find the Covenant first."

    "This movie is one of the best classics of all time. I remember watching it for the first time five years ago and have watched it at least 3 more times since. The movie has a great and suspenseful plot. The story line is exciting from the beginning until the end. The graphic are obviously out of date but that is not a big deal in my mind. This is the kind of movie everyone needs to see at least once."

    "If you want to talk about classic films, then Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark should be near the top of the list. As it is, Raiders topped this treasure hunt movie list and it doesn't surprise me. It is the mother of all treasure hunt movies. No explanation needed. And if by chance that you have been too young to have watched this movie, I would suggest you dive into it."

    "This is a classic. Unlike the other movies from this franchise, all of the characters are likeable and easy to follow. The plot is fun and changes up through the movie enough to keep it fresh and interesting. By far the best one in the series and a classic that everyone should see at least once."

Indy must discover the Ark before the Nazis do, and he has to survive poison, traps, snakes and treachery to do so."
