Critic Reviews for Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation
The Adaptation is the least cynical movie I've ever seen. Each shot is a moment of wonder and discovery.
The pic's real delight is its sheer resourcefulness, as stunts and FX are re-created on a shoestring in one of the most elaborate amateur features ever made.
This extraordinarily faithful cover version quickly became the stuff of fanboy legend.
Adaptation is a treasure of comedy, marvel, and accomplishment that fails to surface much these days, and I cheer Zala, Strompolos, and Lamb's determination to keep their efforts afloat
Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation is a loving tribute to the original film.
Given that copyright wrangles mean it may never get released, Adaptation is a covetable, Indy-worthy treasure in its own right.
[T]he unintentionally hilarious moments are the real gold, such as when a pudgy teen Strompolos says, "It's not the years, honey...it's the mileage."
The Adaptation the sort of film, like the one which inspired it, that easily worms it's way into your heart. The love isn't just on the screen, it's all around.
