: I would be curious to hear what people thought the ending of ROTLA implied--did the government realize the power of the Ark and hide it in the warehouse to prevent others from stealing it and using its power for "evil" or did the ending imply that the government was as dumb as might be expected and not realize what they had? In other words, did the government intentionally hide the Ark in the warehouse or did they file it away and ignore itr out of ignorance and inefficiency? I am real curious to hear your thoughts. Remember that Indy told the government how powerful the Ark was in the scene prior to the warehouse scene.
Well, I would have to say, knowing how George and Steven might think of our wonderful government, they were saying that they filed it away in storage along with other ten million things they have. (area 51 for example??) Only Indy was smart enough to realize what they had. In my opinion, the creators were calling the government a bunch of idiots.
