Critic Review - Variety

A magnificent film. George Lucas set out to make the biggest possible adventure fantasy out of his memories of serials and older action epics, and he succeeded brilliantly.

Seduced much?

Jesus. James Cameron does the same exact thing with Avatar and people attack him. But, George Lucas can get away with borrowing or copying material, because he puts lightsabers and the Force in his movie?? C'mon, people! Let's start embracing a new kind of space opera. This tale got really old really fast when George Lucas started changing things. Greedo firing first = One of the greatest abortions in film history. You'll never see Cameron pulling that crap.

Future Jedi

This was My Homework

Star Wars a New Hope is truly a classic, along with all the other movies in the series. It is an epic movie, on the same level of depth as Homer's Odyssey and set standards for other sci-fi action movies and will be hard to top ever. This movie is great because it has a good story filled with good action, and great characters. This movie already got passed down from my Dad to me, and will be sure to last for generations.
