Summary: A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... Princess Leia (Fisher) is held hostage by the evil Imperial forces in their effort to quell the rebellion against the Galactic Empire. Luke Skywalker (Hamill) and Captain Han Solo (Ford) team together with the lovable droid duo, R2-D2 and C-3PO, to rescue the beautiful princess and restore justice in the galaxy. (20th Century Fox)
Great science fiction told with a soaring score, immense imagination, and characters who though, from a place and time far, far away are amicable companions, the kind we'd like to bound off with across the universe.
I always feel as though the movie should end after they escape from the Death Star. You have to admit that it drags on a little bit. This may be a controversial thing to say, but this is my least favourite of the original trilogy.
What's there to say that hasn't been said a thousand times over? It's the beginning of the Holy Trilogy and a pop culture phenomenon. It introduced the memorable characters we all love, and brought a very human aspect to sci-fi. Visually stunning, with a score that's downright moving. The acting can get to be pretty horrible, but part of the blame lies with Lucas' writing. It doesn't make the movie any less fun.
The very definition of popcorn entertainment. What it lacks in emotional resonance it makes up for in sheer unstoppable excitement. What film since 'Star Wars' has made my filmgoer guts do crazy somersaults the way they did when I saw that Imperial Cruiser for the first time? Very damned few.
Star Wars' has three crucial elements going for it and they've traveled time like troopers -- it's a terrifically entertaining war story, it has memorable characters and it is visually compelling. What more do we want in movies, anyway?
