The year is 1957, a time of the Cold War, anti-communism hysteria, and Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford of Indiana Jones and the Raiders Of The Lost Ark , Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) is on another adventure as he is hauled into Area 51 by KBG agents to find an artifact that is stored in a cavernous warehouse. The team is lead by Irina Spalko (Cate Blanchett of The Lord of the Rings : The Fellowship of the Ring), a leader in paranormal research for her Socialist empire, as she calls it. There is much mistrust going on when Indy and his companion, ‘Mac’ George Michale (Ray Winstone) ask for gunpowder to lead them to the artifact, as it is highly magnetic, and the powder will lead the way. Once they find the box, Agent Spalko opens it only to find the remains of an alien body. This is no ordinary alien. This is the body of one of the aliens found in Roswell, New Mexico ten years before. Indy was working as a specialist on that case then, but ten years later, he is still very much in the dark about what went on there. More mistrust occurs when Mac turns on him for payment by the KGB, as Mac has amassed some gambling debts the Russians are willing to pay off. There is much bullets and blood and mayhem as Indy makes his escape, and he finds himself in a fake suburban town populated with manniquins. The Howdy Doody show is running on the black and white TV, but that little theme song is drowned out by sirens, and Indy has no time to escape what is coming. He dives into a lead-lined refrigerator, and is thrown from the nuclear test blast that annihilates the fake town. Somehow, he manages to make it back home to Connecticut and is teaching again at Marshall College when Dean Charles Stanforth (Jim Broadbent of The Borrowers) approaches Indy about all the chaos he is causing with the government agencies and the board of regents. The FBI has gotten involved and it has caused such an uproar that in order for Indy to keep his job, the Dean was forced to resign.

Indiana Jones and the Raiders Of The Lost Ark

This entry was posted in Action, Adventure, DVD, Videos & Movies, Fantasy by Cleave on

A film full of mystery, occult and wonder as we are taken on a journey of both discovery and adventure. It is still as great today as it was when it first hit the screen in 1981. This is a classic that is never going to die and drops us into the middle of a time when the world was still a mysterious place. A time when just looking for something was a reward unto it’s self. The film might seem to start slow but it quickly picks up the pace ad Indy tries to stay one step ahead of all the traps and pitfalls that are in front and chasing him. You will love the ride that is Indiana Jones and the Raiders Of The Lost Ark. Yes, I called it a ride because that is what it is. Like a roller coaster we are being pulled up the hill and then plummeted down the next as we try and keep up with what is now our hero. Lucas and Spielberg definitely knew what they were doing with this film.
