Una de las mejores películas de aventuras de la historia. Sí, tienes sus fallitos y sus cosas, pero sigue siendo una obra genial innimitable.

I've seen hundreds of films in my lifetime. This one is no doubt at the very top. As close to a perfect film as has ever been made. Someday, someone will produce a film that comes close to Raiders, but I haven't seen it yet.

An OK movie with intense violence for a PG movie...

raiders of the lost ark is a master piece by Steven Spielberg and George Lucas and is the best action film I've ever seen with some great acting by Harrison Ford Karen Allen John Rhys Davies and Paul Freeman it's a classic that every one has seen

Despite ending with a deus ex machina, this hero's journey gives scope to the lore of yore, creating new, true believers in the type of spirit that is the actual higher power.

One of the greatest movies ever made! Definitely Lucas' and Ford's greatest movies ever, and one of Spielberg's best (alongside Deep Impact). The movie leaves the viewer feeling quite exhilarated and exhausted (in a good way). Brilliantly done.

Raiders of the Lost Ark (also known as Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark) is a 1981 American action adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg.
Harrison Ford is simply brilliant in the title role. Featuring amazing sets and stunts, and a good mix of action, drama, and comedy, this is an entertaining film that the whole family can enjoy.
Considered one of the best films of all time. The top grossing film of 1981 AAN 1001

involving, inventive and always fun, the film's broad influence by classic adventure serials is skilfully supported by its own artistic force. the plot's supernatural mcguffin is itself a character, serving to remind how limited and human its seekers can be. 'raiders' is many accomplishments for cinema, but most importantly a rollicking time and in a class of its own.

Harrison Ford at his best.
April 2, 2018
A film that oozes pure adventure and fun. It pulls you in and takes you along for the ride while bullwiping you from behind.

One of Spielberg's best films. It deserves its title of classic and is still exciting to this day.

Best Indiana Jones movie by far. A compelling adventure worth seeing.

Raiders of the Lost Ark is a memorable adventure picture, featuring some top-notch action sequences, and a phenomenal performance from Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. The movie also has good pacing, glamorous supporting performances, plus effects and music which would stand the test of time.

From a fresh and great story, to the terrific acting of Harrison Ford and beautiful cinematography. "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark" is a epic masterpiece, that has Steven Spielberg written all over it.
March 24, 2018
"With an incredible story, well done casting, and iconic moments along with the score, once you add those together what do you get? An adventerous epic triumph of all time! The action sequences are just amazing, this film is impossible to hate, and it gives you a sense of adventure along the way. Although it's frightening to younger viewers and it's a little too intense for a PG rating. But for this film as a whole, this is simply one of Steven Spielberg's greatest achievements that you have to see at sometime before you die."

Purportedly my Dad's favourite movie, but it had been yonks since I'd seen it. Harrison Ford, right in the midst of his Star Wars stardom, created another classic character, Indiana Jones, the archaeologist, treasure hunter, and all round adventurer of the 1930s (from the story by George Lucas himself and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan). As I watched the opening sequence, which sees Indy hoping to steal a golden idol from a hidden and very booby-trapped cave, I thought "It's for kids!" and "Wouldn't my boys enjoy this!" but then, there's a fair bit of violence, some of it gruesome and gory. In fact, the film apparently barely dodged an R rating. Common Sense Media recommends this for Age 11 and I think that's probably apt - it is very much a boy's own adventure. Which is not to say that feisty Karen Allen doesn't try to hold her own as Jones' love interest and a bit of an adventurer herself (but the script keeps tying her up and putting her into frilly dresses and negligees). The plot has Indiana heading to Egypt to dig up the Lost Ark of the Covenant (containing the original pieces of the stones on which the 10 commandments were written). But the Nazis got there first, with their French archaeologist (and Jones arch-nemesis) to guide them. They match wits and Indy finds himself in some tight spots (with snakes) and even loses the Ark to Hitler's crew. But all's well that ends well and produces three sequels. This turns out to be one of the highlights of Steven Spielberg's directorial career - still high gloss and manipulative of the audience but with a true sense of fun and wonder.

A real class act of a movie, a great story, some exceptional special effects (and a few not so exceptional) and the ultimate creation of a iconic central character.
