Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made (2015) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made tells the story behind the making of Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation a shot for shot fan remake of Spielberg’s seminal action film that took a bunch of kids 7 years to make and then 30+ years to actually finish.  As mad as you THINK that sounds the truth is even stranger.  So if you want to see a film about childhood dreams, dedication (or obsession) and how life can sometimes get in the way then this is the film for you. But as mad as it is it has a real heart to it and you cant help but love the fools involved as they get back together to finally finish their Magnus Opus. Also great to see filmmaker and god shite Eli Roth championing them along the way.  Can they finally get their film in front of the Spielberg? Catch it on Netflix UK to find out.

Best Bit: Eli Roth (yup I say THAT very often)

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream
