A thrilling experience.
Darth Vader and his James Earl Jones voice is a bad egg no matter how much we know about his screwy upbringing.
Compelling backstory, exciting action and pleasantly archetypal characters.
It's easy to see why Star Wars held such an appeal to the kids and adults of the late 1970s.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
A pop-culture landmark!
| Original Score: 3/4
The wild ride that helped change the face of modern moviegoing, and is every bit as entertaining today as it was 20 years ago.
All in all, this movie is a classic.
| Original Score: 4/4
A combination of past and future, Western and space odyssey, myth and dream world, Star Wars may be the most enduring piece of escapism ever put on film.
Twenty years later, George Lucas' loved saga of the war between good and evil in a distant galaxy returns in digitally enhanced and augmented form.
Star Wars (1977), (aka Star Wars - Episode IV: A New Hope) is one of the most popular, profitable, entertaining, and successful science fiction/action - adventure films
It's fun and funny.
