Raiders of the Lost Ark Reviews
Raiders of the lost ark is not a masterpiece, instead far from it, the acting sucks the green screen effects suck the dialogue suck A LOT SUCK. There is still plentiful creativity and action
So this is an action movie at it's heart, and everything in that aspect is great. Its exciting and fun when it has action, as well as sometimes thrilling. It's just genuinely enjoyable and makes up for the lack of narrative heft. You've probably also heard something about how this movie ends that's a common complaint, but I won't ruin it, however I do agree. It pretty much defeats the purpose of the movie. Nonetheless, it's thoroughly entertaining.
Harrison Ford's performance is also great. While he doesn't do all his stunts, he is still perfectly fitting in the role. This movie also has some humor which adds to the campy fun of the movie. Finally, the sets are also great. There's nothing that feels cheesy or fake in this movie thanks to all those things.
Overall, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost ark is a classic Spielberg adventure film. All the action in the movie is exciting and entertaining without being over the top, and makes up for the sometimes unexceptional narrative. There's also humor, realistic sets, and a great central performance that fits the character that make the adventure feel of this movie better. It's not an award-winning masterpiece, it's just an entertaining action movie, and nothing more.
