Raiders of the Lost Ark is my favorite movie. I don't have to tell you why it's great. You know why it's great. Instead, what follows is a list of very personal moments.

There is a charm and vitality to Raiders of the Ark, which Spielberg later admitted was "the first movie where I actually shot the movie without thinking".

Harrison Ford embodies the persona of Indiana Jones with perfection and paves him as an iconic hero.

This film is a volcano of creative ideas in full eruption -- the modern high action adventure against which all others must now be measured.

Yes, it's as entertaining as you have heard. Maybe more so. Raiders of the Lost Ark is, in fact, about as entertaining as a commercial movie can be.

As action adventure goes, it's about the best there is.

Steven Spielberg's rollicking adventure yarn still looks buoyant and dashing after 30 years.

The boulder has never looked bigger, the guns have never sounded louder and Indy's whip has never cracked sharper than they do here.

If Lucas is Raiders' guts and Kasdan its head, then Spielberg is its beating heart. Little wonder Part IV is still on the cards.

Raiders is a classic and repeated viewings, especially when presented properly on the big screen, only reinforce this further.

Raiders of the Lost Ark has it all -- or, anyway, more than enough to transport moviegoers back to the dazzling, thrill-sated matinee idyls of old.

It is the classic film [by] Lucas, Spielberg...back before they were replaced by automatons put here by aliens.

The thrills are fully consumed while you're seeing this movie, and it's totally over when it's over. It's a workout. You feel as if you'd been to the desert digs: at the end your mind is blank, yet you're parched, you're puffing hard -- you want relief.

Justifiably one of the most indelible adventure films in cinematic history...

Kansas City Star

It's the perfect vacation-time movie: not a serious moment in its whole two hours but so crammed with laughter, thrills and cinematic sleight of hand that audiences will be sorry when it's over.

Lost Ark holds up for many reasons, not least of which is because of Spielberg's consummate skill as a visual storyteller and his ability to draw charged performances from his actors.
