The movie has a strange feeling at the beginning, Tarkin makes a profound tone in the movie, is all a trip to some interesting cultures, it's very technical, the attack on the death star scene is very exciting, the concept of the force feel good, is strange, amusing and enjoyable

I watched this first run in 1977 and was awestruck. How lucky I am to be able to see this great universe revisited in 2018! Too cool, keep the movies coming.

If you have not watched any of the original saga. There is something wrong with you. All three legendary movies go down as some of the greats!

Wow. The Last Jedi is coming out in December. "Star Wars: A New Hope" was created by George Lucas. George Lucas. This movie has a few flaws, but it's no big deal. This movie makes me break down mentally, it's so good. The first scene tells you a lot: the Galactic Empire has a tight grip over the Rebel Alliance. Everything about this movie is great, with, again, only a few flaws. It is still to this day one of my most favorite movies.

Star Wars is a masterpiece of film, it is in a league of its own, what is amazing about this movie is not the acting that isn't all that great, or the sets which aren't all that great, or the special effects, though revolutionary for their time certainly have been since eclipsed, It is what happens in the rare event, that the right script, the right director, the right vision, the right actors, all come together, in a under dog long shot movie, that went over budget, almost was cancelled, everyone who was involved with it doubted it would be successful, and then, by some sheer moment of movie magic, John Williams score breathes life into it, Jame Earl Jones voice Darth Vader, the sound of light sabers and speeding space crafts all explode on the scene. Suddenly the audience is looking at something we had never seen before, a magical movie with a princess, and a rescue, and a death star and space monkeys and what have you. A surprising and addicting blockbuster that anyone who watches the original (not CGI remake) will recognize immediately as fun and entertaining, and an instant classic. Not because its perfect, but because of its unpolished genius, this is a 100%, a real rarity in film. While Star Wars did not have deep characters, or shared deep insights into the human condition, it did share the basic formal of heroic myth in a very light and entertaining movie...that is the magic of movies.

the best space opera movie with empire strikes back. it is a masterpiece that combines the classical hero saga to japanese samurais, arabic figures, the western knights, the idea of 'chakra', classical sci-fi films, and lovable characters.

Pinnacle of story telling

A good opening film to a franchise, it lays a lot of groundwork. Unfortunately because of this the film (particularly the first 40 minutes) feels a little slow. Whenever i introduce people to this franchise i always worry that they feel a little bored during this one. Overall though a good movie. Luke can be a little bit whiny and Leia keeps switching between a British and American accent (which one could argue she uses to mock the imperials, most of which have British accents).

This movie pays homage to many classics though, with a classic, yet simple story of a farm boy, and a wizard rescuing a princess, with its Flash Gordan style of opening crawl, ties to Japanese samurai movies and classic swashbuckling movies and WW2 dogfighting movies whats not to love? Star Wars takes all of these ideas and weaves them into something new and fresh. Even if a little slow, this movie is worth a watch. Go check it out.

A classic that has withstood many generations to remain both a household classic and a household name. Star Wars has become perhaps the single greatest cultural addition to mankind that cinema has ever brought us, and nothing in cinema has been the same since Star Wars.

A magic journey into, what some believe to be a life changing experience, just like me.

The original Star Wars managed to shock audiences with it's great storyline, world-building, and visual effects for the time. Star Wars is a timeless classic, and is almost a masterpiece...Yet it isn't the best film in the star-wars universe...
