"Yes, it's as entertaining as you have heard. Maybe more so. Raiders of the Lost Ark is, in fact, about as entertaining as a commercial movie can be."
- Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune
"Raiders of the Lost Ark has it all -- or, anyway, more than enough to transport moviegoers back to the dazzling, thrill-sated matinee idyls of old."
- Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine
"A crackerjack fantasy-adventure that shapes its pulp sensibilities and cliff-hanging serial origins into an exhilarating escapist entertainment that will have broad-cased summer audiences in the palm of its hand."
- Stephen Klain, Variety
"This is the kind of movie that, even today, audiences immediately fall in love with. It has all the right ingredients: a smart script, a likable hero, a dash of romance, more than a touch of comedy, and a lot of fast-paced action."
- James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"To get to the point immediately, Raiders of the Lost Ark is one of the most deliriously funny, ingenious and stylish American adventure movies ever made."
- Vincent Canby, New York Times
"Steven Spielberg turns the pure adventure of Saturday afternoon serials into a solidly entertaining spectacle."
- Howard Karren, Premiere
