Ever since I saw this movie as a kid in the movie theater when it was released, the damned thing has never ceased to fascinate me. By now, I have seen it so many times but it has never lost its charms and it is easily my favorite Indiana Jones movie. Basically, it is, in my opinion, the ultimate adventure film. The first masterstroke was to cast Sean Connery as Professor Henry Jones. Indeed, there was this great chemistry between Harrison Ford and Sean Connery and they made the whole thing completely spelbinding to watch. The second masterstroke was to pick up the ultimate archological artifact, the Holy Grail. That was for example a huge let down concerning the last installment (honestly, who cares about a crystal skull coming from space...) whereas the Holy Grail is one of the most fascinating myth in the whole human history and it was just awesome to see Dr Jones Jr and Sr chasing it around the globe. Finally, there were also loads of cool action scenes which kept me on the edge of my seat from the beginning until the end. Basically, the whole thing was quite pitch-perfect, , it was just damned entertaining, I think it is a great classic and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
