Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
- 1h 55min
- Directed by: Steven Spielberg
- Cast: Harrison Ford, Karen Allen, Paul Freeman, Ronald Lacey, John Rhys-Davies, Denholm Elliott
Ford plays adventuring archaeologist Indiana Jones, who almost bites off more than he can chew when he turns up at the Ark of the Covenant in Nazi-infested wartime Egypt. Return to the breathless excitement of the Saturday morning serial with this rollercoaster of a movie, which is probably better than either of its sequels. Tongue held very firmly in cheek.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
