Product Description

Product Description

All three of Steven Spielberg's films featuring the exploits of adventurer Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) are collected together in a box set. In 'Raiders of the Lost Ark', Indy goes in search of the original Commandment tablets, while in 'The Temple of Doom' it is the sacred Sankara stone he seeks. 'The Last Crusade' sees Indy off once again, this time to find his father (Sean Connery), who has vanished while looking for the Holy Grail.

From Amazon.co.uk

As with George Lucas' other movie franchise, there's a vein of mysticism running through Indiana Jones' big-screen adventures. Watching the trilogy back to back in this box set it's possible to unravel the chronology and chart the spiritual journey of our hero: the idealistic Young Indy ("It belongs in a museum", implores River Phoenix in the opening escapade of The Last Crusade) grows up to become a cynical fortune-hunter seen trading archaeological treasures with Chinese gangsters at club "Obi-Wan" in The Temple of Doom. From there we follow his path to redemption via three mystical religious objects: respectively Hindu (the Shankara stones in Temple of Doom), Jewish (the Ark of the Covenant in Raiders), and Christian (the Holy Grail itself in Last Crusade).

But that's just the subtext. Along the way, this knight-errant archaeologist undertakes improbable adventures (featuring spiders, snakes, rats, insects and Nazis galore), rescues damsels in distress (even when they don't want to be rescued, like Kate Capshaw in Temple of Doom) and still finds time to bond with his dad (Sean Connery, in one of cinema's great cameo roles as Dr Jones Sr.). Steven Spielberg revels in Lucas' recreation of 1930s cliffhanger serials, infusing every scene with kinetic energy and infectious enthusiasm, and creating any number of iconic sequences that have become touchstones of cinematic history (the opening of Raiders has been parodied innumerable times in everything from chocolate commercials to The Simpsons). Director and producer are more than ably assisted by regular composer John Williams, whose swashbuckling Korngold-inspired "Raiders" theme casts Harrison Ford as a modern-day Errol Flynn. Although a fourth movie has long been promised, this trilogy plays like a self-contained whole that leaves nothing wanting: from the witty dialogue and breathtaking action choreography to the near-perfect casting and lovingly detailed period production design, this is popular movie-making at its very peak. --Mark Walker

Being a huge Harrison Ford fan, I feel that these three films are his best. Pure delight from start to finish.
While watching Raiders of the Lost Ark I totally forgot that it was made in the early 80's. Without already knowing the truth, you could have told me that they were filmed last year and I would have believed you.
The storys are original and fantastic, the script is well writen, and they are well directed.
Harrison Ford bonds perfectly with his character giving just the right blend of looks, muscles, brains and humour.
Sean Connary acts very well in the final film 'The Last Crusade' even if his character is an annoying old fart.
Overall, the three films are faultless. Perfection in a box.
Having seen these three films again, I am hoping that the rumours of a forth Indiana Jones film is true.
In short, Buy It !

this has got to be one of the best sequences of movies ever made. i have got all of the james bond movies an i decided i'd get a new lot of movies. i saw this set and thought yeah i'll get it. and i havent been dissapointed. i'm now just hoping that there is going to be a fourth, i reckon probably set after the war would be good with indy a little bit older and a little bit wiser. anyway these videos have definitely got it all-adventure, romance, suspense and comedy in parts.definitely classics, i mean how many people have heard of or seen the start of raiders with the huge ball. everyone just about.brilliant.

This is why we have Bank Holiday's. Classic viewing with humor, suspense, the good guy, the bad guys and of course...... the obligatory girl falling for Indie every time.
All you have to do to enjoy these films, is switch off your negative chip Stop denying that you have ever pretended you were Indiana Jones with the whip and everything and enjoy them the way they should be enjoyed:- A cup of coffee/Tea a packet of digestives, feet on the sofa and away you go.
One negative point..... Put them onto DVD!

Well whatever people may think about Indiana Jones there is no denying that this is the best trilogy bar none!
Harrison Ford was perfectly cast as the action hero with a smile! He is far better than James Bond as IJ humour is much funnier than JB, his action sequences are more exciting and plus, IJ does have fears! He hates snakes! Very rarely do we see a hero with a phobia!
These are classic action/comdey/romance films that are pure class.
My favourite is Last Crusade as it stars Sean Connery in one of the best cameos EVER! We also get to see the late great River Phoenix as a young Indiana and we see how it all started!
Idiana dodges Nazi's, snakes, bullets, huge rolling rocks, cult mind control, treaturous women, bombs, spiders, demons from the Ark of the Covonet, and ancient curses from the Holy Grail!
It's all rip-roaring stuff with a instantly recognisable musical score (better than star wars!)some real belly laughs, great action, and some dark and spooky spells and curses!
Perfect for the winter nights with a nice mug of hot chocolate, for you to curl up with on the sofa!
A must have for every video collection. One thing I will say is, it should be brought out on DVD! Even so, 5 stars just doesn't do it justice!
(have you noticed that Harrison Ford is in the two greatest trilogy's of all time! Star Wars and Indiana Jones! Hmmm...bizarre!)

The films are superb as they are and they are just enhanced with this brilliant box set. A few great things about this set is you get interviews with George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and Harrison at the end of each film, the film quality has been digitally remastered and the sound, and the box that holds all the videos is nice too! So all in all well worth the money for any Indy fan!

Little needs to be said by way of introduction to the trilogy, as most people buying this will probably be doing so in remembrance of many Christmas afternoons sat in front of the telly, watching Indiana crack his whip. For those that haven't seen it (and what did you do with your childhood?), you have much to look forward to; never taking himself too seriously, Harrison Ford saunters from one adventure to another, hat firmly on head and tongue firmly in cheek. Unlike so many other films of the eighties, it dates wondefully, showing all the charm that has made it a classic, and spawn of a thousand cliches. So ignore the colonial racism (it is set in the 30s, after all), just suspend your disbelief and let the credits roll. Oh, and watch out for three of the best film openings in cinematic history...

Don`t get me wrong these are fantastic videos,just as fresh and lively as when I first watched them many christmas ago.However I do want to add a word of warning:-check them out before you let the smalls in the house watch them.Mine came with a PG guidance which I think is fair,and it does mention Bloody as a violence guide,which again is fair.It`s just that the mystic side of the plot containing vodoo and religion in general with great jump ability and lots of hiding behind the sofa,may make for a few sleepless nights or smalls entering the parental bedroom thinking the snakes are after them.You Know your smalls ,and all I and urging is refresh your memory of the films before you let them lose on old Indie,the tongue in cheek element may be lost on them.
