1981 - When good reviewers go bad, Part II 

"For the most part, this oldtime, serial-type adventure film is a rip snorting, wild and wooly, hell of a good time… but the ending, and it's pseudo religious hocus-pocus is out of character with the devilishly sly, often outrageous humor and more or less believable excitement of the rest of the film. As the hero, and what a hero he is, says, 'I'm making this up as I go along,' a statement that holds true for the writers and producers. But when they got to the ending, they had run out of ideas. The really best scenes of the film - with the possible exception of two - are in the opening sequence , and the movie never quite makes it back to that level of excitement. But it's a good film, and almost everyone will enjoy it." -- Arkansas Times Review on "Raiders of the Lost Ark," August 1981
