The Raiders of the Lost Ark documentary
25 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I finally saw this documentary today, Sept. 25, 2012, as it was included as a backup feature on the fifth disc of the 2012 Blu-Ray five disc "Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures" release. I immediately bought it for under seventy dollars and I couldn't be happier. Buy the set. Go through the trials and tribulations and visit the locations the cast and crew had to meet and face daily while the film was being made. See why stunt people are needed and necessary for an adventure film to succeed. Fire, crashes, cast and crew get together to capture on film for present and future audiences the visions of story writers and a director to create a finished product that will only be known to be well done if movie theaters are filled with customers and critics are amazed as well.
