"Don’t look at it, no matter what happens!" Harrison Ford’s archeology professor Dr. Jones is on the hunt for the face-melting Ark of the Covenant, but will he get there before Hitler’s Nazi thugs? Winner of 5 Academy Awards®, and the first Lucas-Spielberg collaboration.


“The first — and best — of Steven Spielberg and George Lucas’ Indiana Jones trilogy is a Saturday matinee B movie writ large, which pays tongue-in-cheek homage to the cliff-hanging serials of yesteryear… Filled with nonstop thrills and hyperkinetic action, death-defying stunts and eye-popping special effects, the comic strip-style violence (including melting flesh and grisly corpses) is… perfect escapist entertainment for teens, and Harrison Ford is a perfect hero.”
– Leonard Maltin, Leonard Maltin’s Family Film Guide


“An out-of-body experience, a movie of glorious imagination and breakneck speed that grabs you in the first shot, hurtles you through a series of incredible adventures, and deposits you back in reality two hours later — breathless, dizzy, wrung-out, and with a silly grin on your face. A swashbuckling adventure epic in the tradition of STAR WARS, SUPERMAN, the James Bond pictures, and all the other multimillion-dollar special-effects extravaganzas. It wants only to entertain. It succeeds.”
– Roger Ebert
