Show Synopsis

Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) is no ordinary archeologist. When we first see him, he is somewhere in the Peruvian jungle in 1936, running a booby-trapped gauntlet (complete with an over-sized rolling boulder) to fetch a solid-gold idol. He loses this artifact to his chief rival, a French archeologist named Belloq (Paul Freeman), who then prepares to kill our hero.

Indy!

Da dada daaaaaaa da dadaaaaaaaaa da dada daaaaaaa da da DA DA DA!

Everyone knows the theme tune, it just sets the tone for the entire film - swashbuckling and heroic and jaunty and epic!

This is a film I could watch again and again and never tire of it. It reminds me of being younger and watching it with my dad! Its just such a wonderful way to escape for a while. Into the world of Indy, a character who always ends up in way over his head! And yet he always manages to come out on top.

This film has one of the best opening scenes ever - the temple scene where Indy steals the statue and is chased by the giant boulder before tumbling out into the middle of a group of cannibals and being rescued by a plane!

The whole film is just brilliant! Harisson Ford is excellent as the kind of slightly comic hero who actually does risk life and limb for what he believes in. I think these films work so well because Indy is a normal guy with normal flaws, but lots of courage.

Definately a great family film.
