Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope Reviews
Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope
Everybody's just a kid from somewhere. Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope, starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher, brings drama and an amazing story into the sci-fi universe. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill,) a farm boy on a desert planet, wants to escape his boring home and live a life of adventure. He ends up meeting a jedi named Obi wan Kenobi and learns the ways of the force. The farmers he lives with get killed, so he leaves his home and joins the rebel alliance to fight the empire. Along the way they meet a criminal on the run named Han Solo (Harrison Ford,) who flies them to where they need to go to rescue the rebel leader Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher,) who takes them to the rebel base so they can come up with a plan to destroy the evil empire's ultimate weapon, the DEATH STAR. Each actor plays his/her part perfectly, and the movie has incredible special effects for the time, but the real genius is in the story. Star Wars is actually many different, wonderful stories in one movie (Luke's story, Han's story, Rebels vs. Empire, Obi wan's story, I could go on.) However, the movie starts the action right away, and has very few peaceful moments, which may not be for everybody. Overall, I give the movie 5/5 stars.
