Lucas consegue imprimir energia à direção e estabelece seus personagens como figuras imediatamente icônicas, mesmo que, aqui e ali, seus péssimos diálogos comprometam a experiência.

It is a sweeping epic with classical themes lifted from the teachings of Joseph Campbell, but it maintains strong central characters.

After Star Wars, movies not only spawned profitable kids' toys; they merged with kids' toys, and basically became toys themselves.

It has shaped our imaginations, our inner worlds. The series may be over at last, but the Force will be with us always.

A grand and glorious film that may well be the smash hit of 1977, and certainly is the best movie of the year so far.
July 13, 2008
On the basic level of simple entertainment it succeeds as well as any film ever has.

So, is this the best film of all time? Certainly not. But it definitely is one of the most enduring, and it's hard not to be seduced.

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.

Star Wars is enchanting in the most literal sense of the word. It's pure comic strip fantasy, to be enjoyed even more by nostalgic adults than by wide-eyed youngsters.

Easily the best movie in town this summer and perhaps destined to be the best of 1977.

Has distinct limitations, but the current return to a cinema of spectacle and wonder is wholly encouraging.

Puts most recent 'epic' blockbuster mediocrities to shame.

One of those few films that you can expect to find in almost anyone's collection.

Lucas' trilogy earned its place in eternity not for its mechanical precision, but for its intangible qualities of inspiration and wonder.

...the key to the movie's success is its creation of a family of characters we can love and believe in.

The movie, modeled after old-fashioned Westerns and Joseph Campbell's writings about mythology, also has a sweet innocence.

The special effects wizardry seen in Star Wars is put in aid of a pure 1930s space opera pulp story . . .

Those of us who were old enough to catch the film as kids the first time around may even find an unexpected lump in their throats as the nostalgia gates bust wide open and Vader gets his, once again, on that giant, silver screen.

What's fascinating from a cinematic point of view is the magnificently derivative nature of the film. It's an enormous summary of characters, styles, and plot points that surveys 40 years of film history.
