Oh, the astronomical audiences; oh, the mundane story; oh, the over-cute little robots (one fat, one thin); oh, the vapid actors, the galactic shootouts; oh, the brilliant technology and oh, the boredom of it all.
Star Wars is, indeed, a movie that dares to be different, not only in setting, but in theme at a time when imagination has surrendered to realism in motion pictures. If you don't enjoy Star Wars, you are not as young at heart as you think you are.
Tender loving care abounds in the production... The casting is great, with the inexperienced giving it a naivety that is essential to the story, and the veterans a rock-solid identification with evil (Cushing) and good (Guinness).
