About the Movie
After Steven Spielberg's classic film was released almost 35 years ago, three 11-year-old boys from Mississippi set out on what would become a 7-year-long labor of love and tribute to their favorite film: a faithful, shot-for-shot adaptation of the action adventure film. They finished every scene...except one; the film's explosive airplane set piece. Over two decades later, the trio reunited with the original cast members from their childhood in order to complete their masterpiece. Featuring interviews with John Rhys-Davies, Eli Roth and more, RAIDERS! is the story of the project’s culmination, chronicling the friends' dedication to their artistic vision—mixed in with some movie magic—to create the greatest fan film ever made.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It's amazing.
Fresh: Often poignant, occasionally pathetic, but never short of entertaining, "Raiders!" captures the obsessive hold movies have on young people's imaginations ...
Fresh: Though indulgently overlong, "Raiders!" manages to unearth the inner geek in all of us.
Fresh: Jeremy Coon and Tim Skousen get a lot of mileage out of its audacity. Their documentary is modest and sometimes clumsy, as if made with the expectation that only the geek community would ever want to watch it.
Best Doc of the Year so Far!
Loved it! This doc was not only one of the best docs I’ve seen this year, but one of the best films. So many laughs and inspiring. A must see for any Indy or film fanatic.
