In 1936, Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford), a renowned archaeologist and adventurer, is hired by the US government to locate the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis can obtain it. The Ark is believed to contain immense power and whoever possesses it could use it for their own gain.

Indy travels to Nepal where he meets his former lover Marion Ravenwood (Karen Allen) who possesses one piece of the medallion that leads to the location of the Ark. However, they are ambushed by Nazis led by Toht (Ronald Lacey) who try to take the medallion from them. Indy manages to escape with Marion and together they travel to Cairo.

In Cairo, Indy meets up with his friend Sallah (John Rhys-Davies), a local excavator who helps him decode the medallion and discover the location of the Well of Souls where the Ark is buried. Meanwhile, Nazi archaeologist Dr. Ren? Belloq (Paul Freeman) is also searching for the Ark and has allied himself with Toht.

Indy and Sallah manage to uncover the Well of Souls but before they can retrieve the Ark, Belloq and Toht arrive with their own excavation team and capture Indy and Marion. They force Indy to enter the Well of Souls where he finds countless snakes guarding the Ark.

Eventually, Indy retrieves the Ark but he and Marion are captured again by Belloq’s men. However, during a ceremony where Belloq plans to open the Ark, it is revealed that both Indy and Marion have escaped their restraints. Chaos ensues as supernatural beings emerge from inside of the Ark killing most of Belloq’s men gruesomely.

Indy manages to close off access to these powerful spirits using his knowledge on ancient texts. The US government arrives at this moment; they retrieve both Indy and Marion before making sure everything related to this event gets covered up.

In the end, Indy and Marion head into the sunset hand-in-hand. Indy is unable to obtain the Ark for himself but has destroyed it’s power and stopped the Nazis from getting their hands on it. He has also found true love in Marion and gained a deeper appreciation for history and his work as an archaeologist.

As a child, I was moved by the movie “The Bad News Bears Go to Japan” where Japanese professional baseball players and American actors performed in front of a large audience. This made me fall in love with the movie. This blog is my review of the movie that I actually saw. Please use it as a reference when renting movies.

For a long time, in between housework,
I would go to the movie theater to watch films and then write reviews of the movies in a diary which I stored away in a closet.
When I showed these reviews to Azesan, he suggested turning them into a website.
I am grateful for this wonderful opportunity. I may be nearing the end of my life, but if reading my reviews can move the hearts of younger people,
I think that would be wonderful.
It may even become a catalyst for various realizations and changes in their lives moving forward.
