Reviews:
“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.”
– Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune

“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.”
– Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine

“A crackerjack fantasy-adventure that shapes its pulp sensibilities and cliff-hanging serial origins into an exhilarating escapist entertainment that will have broad-cased summer audiences in the palm of its hand.”
– Stephen Klain, Variety

“This is the kind of movie that, even today, audiences immediately fall in love with. It has all the right ingredients: a smart script, a likable hero, a dash of romance, more than a touch of comedy, and a lot of fast-paced action.”
– James Berardinelli, ReelViews

“To get to the point immediately, Raiders of the Lost Ark is one of the most deliriously funny, ingenious and stylish American adventure movies ever made.”
– Vincent Canby, New York Times

“Steven Spielberg turns the pure adventure of Saturday afternoon serials into a solidly entertaining spectacle.”
