I am starting to take my word back...Its not the most overrated movie...It, I believe, is definitely overrated...It is great but I find it overrated. Top 30, different story. Same, to me, applies for Back to the Future-

Steven Spielberg's best movie (which is saying something, considering his filmography).

This and Jurassic Park will always convince me Spielberg is a genius . You don't get more exciting then Raiders.

I don't agree that it's better than Star Wars but it's still great

Harrison is one of the best actors. Has great actuations on Witness, The Fugitive, Jack Ryan's flicks, Anchorman 2, Star Wars original trilogy, but the best role by he was here!

One of the greatest action movies of all time! Great main character, brilliant sets and locations, rememberable villains, well shot action with amazing stunt work. What's not to like? Oh, and without this and Star Wars I wouldn't into film as I am today!

Most movies can quite give me the rush of thrills and excitement as the Indy Trilogy!

No. 4 might be too high but this is still one of the best action-adventure films of all time.

It's one of the best acting movies of all time from the characters, pacing, action set pieces, and entertainment value, but number 4 is just ridiculous

Raider's of the Lost Ark is the moment Hollywood figured out that Corny is what sells, in American movies.
