Gives me the chills!
This movie came out a few years before i was even born, but somehow one of my first memories was seeing this movie. Every kid I knew loved star wars boy and girl. So basically if i had to sum up my childhood in two words it would be star wars. From the cantina scene to the death star first rate special effects. The opening crawl probably still brings a tear to my eye. Han solo just rocked and Luke skywalker was just adorable. I love the scene in the garbage chute, but my all time favorite scene is when Luke goes outside and looks out to the horizon (the famous shot of the two suns) and the classic music cues up. Oh my god it gives me the chills. awesome!
A Long, Long Wait For A Movie Far, Far Away
This is not a review of the first ( and best ) 'Star Wars' movie. I take it, fellow I.M.D.B. users, that you are already familiar with the plot, characters and production history, and how its success changed the face of cinema overnight. So rather than rehash all the known facts, I want instead to recount a personal memory.

I first learnt of 'Star Wars' thanks to Granada's 'The Krypton Factor', a long-running game show designed to test contestants' intelligence, physical fitness, powers of observation and so on. I liked the latter round as it often gave one a chance to catch a sneak preview of a new movie. One week, they ran a clip of Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, R2D2 and C2PO escaping The Death Star in The Millennium Falcon, and being shot at by pursuing T.I.E. fighters. I fell off my chair. What was this? 1970's sci-fi movies were mostly depressing affairs, predicting gloomy futures for Mankind, now here was something fast, colourful, and lively, with lasers zapping about outer space and explosions. Right up my street.

I had to see it. But the film was not yet on release here. There was no Internet then so I got my movie information from the local paper. I kept checking for news of an impending screening at my local cinema, but no - there was nothing. I began to wonder if the movie actually existed or not. Had Granada pulled off the greatest hoax of all time? I read the Sphere book voraciously until I knew the story backwards. I played the Meco disco single at every opportunity. When Marvel's comic adaptation went on sale, I was almost thrown out of the newsagent for jumping up and down for sheer joy.

At my school, 'Star Wars' was a dirty word to sci-fi fans, mainly because it was not 'Close Encounters'. The Spielberg picture was regarded as 'adult' and 'intelligent', while the Lucas movie was deemed 'kiddie stuff' starring weirdos in fancy dress running around with a bloke dressed as a big teddy bear.

The wait dragged on and on. In an episode of 'Coronation Street', Gail ( Helen Worth ) asked her then-boyfriend, Steve Fisher: "When's 'Star Wars' coming round here?" to which he replied: "It'll be some time I expect.". His words encapsulated the sheer frustration and impatience felt by all us U.K. fans. The highest grossing film of all time and we can't see it? What is the hold up? Are they redoing bits for the benefit of British audiences? Peter Cushing and Alec Guinness are in it so this cannot be right.

In desperation, I told a blatant lie to my best friend. "I have seen 'Star Wars'", I proclaimed. He looked about as shocked as if I'd said I'd spent the night with Carrie Fisher. I claimed that my uncle Eric worked for Twentieth Century-Fox ( another lie. He drove taxi cabs for a living ) as an assistant editor and George Lucas had been so impressed with his work on the film, he had generously given him a print. To back up my claim, I reeled off a long list of plot details and scene descriptions. I got a few things wrong, such as Jabba The Hut and Biggs Darklighter, both of whom were excised from the final cut. But by the time my friend saw the film he had forgotten these. He did beg me to ask my uncle to run the film specially for him on Sunday afternoon, but I deflected this by stating that Uncle Eric's projector had broken down. He never asked again.

Being about fifteen, I was too old for the toys, hence on Christmas Day 1977 I was denied the pleasure of reenacting the assault on The Death Star in my garden shed, with the aid of elastic bands, old Subbuteo figures and the John Williams soundtrack thumping out of my Hitachi tape recorder.

After what felt like an eternity, the movie finally opened here and suddenly it became fashionable to denounce it as 'overrated'. 'It was childish when they were playing trumpets in the Cantina' was my best friend's verdict. That was all he had to say on the subject ( he would have made a great film critic! ). Many people felt that the film had not been worth the six month wait. I was one of the few to speak in its defence. I was glad that sci-fi movies were fun again. Nobody left the theatre with a spring in their step after seeing Milo The Baby Chimp's parents brutally murdered by the U.S. Government at the end of 'Escape From The Planet Of The Apes'.

'Star Wars' spawned two sequels, neither as good, and inspired the likes of 'Alien', 'The Black Hole', 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture' and countless others. Without Lucas, these would simply not have been made.

I am not a big fan of the prequels, but then I'm not young anymore, so can't enjoy that kind of movie in the same way. 'Star Wars' brought 'A New Hope' to those of us wanting old fashioned escapism on the Silver Screen again. I envy kids today for not having to wait until winter for the latest summer blockbuster.
This I admit is not so much a review as it is an ode.

Thank-you to the writer, director, actors and the studio for nourishing a young man's fantasies and bestowing years of fun and pleasure. Whether a space opera, action fantasy, science fiction or a family drama Star Wars was for years a great source of pleasure and 'comfort movie' for me and even now as an adult I am in awe of the imagination and creativity that went into this film and the two episodes that followed it.

It is frankly too bad that Star Wars fell into the hands of Disney, JJ Abrams and became a tool solely for cashing in and a line item on someone's accounting ledger, but I guess it was inevitable. I chose to ignore the boring new films and forever cherish Leia, Luke, Darth Vader, R2D2, C3PO and the rest of them.

PS: I am glad you lost, evil emperor. I wanted you to fail the moment I laid my eyes on you!
The Best movie of all time!
I have seen this movie so many times, I know the script, I collect the books, ask me any question on Star Wars I could probably answer it.

Star Wars is the best movie ever made. It has everything - plot, special effects, great script, endearing characters, one could go on and on about it. It has opened up an entire new universe in a galaxy far, far away. And the best thing about it, it can never end. As I had never seen Star Wars in the cinema it was absolutely AMAZING to see the famous opening line and the prologue disappearing into space. The best thing about it is that it is labelled Episode 4 - a promise of things to come. Of course everyone has seen this movie and its sequels (if not, you've been living in a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away . . . .) And everyone has to admit that its originality at least makes this one of the best movies of all time.
This is the first film I ever saw...
Having read a lot of the other comments here, I have to say it's interesting to see how many people begin by saying how old they were when they saw "Star Wars" for the first time(Full disclosure: I was three. My parents saw it at a drive-in theatre, and all I can remember of that experience was seeing Darth Vader for the first time, and knowing that he was very, very bad). I think that speaks to its extraordinary impact. "Star Wars" was an event, I suppose in the way that the Beatles on Ed Sullivan for the first time was an event. It dates you, to a degree, but the reason it was important-- the reason it remains important-- is that it showed you what was possible. For much of the 1960s and 1970s, filmmakers had concentrated on showing us the brutal, heartbreaking truth of our world(The Godfather, Chinatown, Nashville-- some of the best movies ever made), and many of them succeeded brilliantly. But there's a place for dreaming dreams of things that have never been, too, and "Star Wars", with its epic tale of an Empire and a rebellion in a galaxy far, far away, was the dream a generation didn't know it wanted to have until George Lucas gave it to us.

Is it juvenile, at times? Simplistic, even? Sure. So's the truth, sometimes. We want to believe there's a Force, and that Luke can master its use in time to defeat the forces of darkness. So we believe it. Are the effects a bit dated now? Sure, although I still believe them. Did the success of "Star Wars" possibly kick off the modern blockbuster era, which gives us more and more special-effects-drenched dreck every year? Sadly, it probably did. But the thing the wannabe heirs of "Star Wars" usually lack is the one thing that made "Star Wars" such an event--courage.

Back in 1977, nobody was making movies like this. Nobody thought a film like this, with its mythic storytelling arc and its sweeping vision of intergalactic war, could possibly work...with the exception of George Lucas and his fellow filmmakers.I didn't know all that at the time, of course. Like I said, I was only three. But having watched more movies than most people my age now, I feel comfortable saying that in its way, "Star Wars" is as much an independent auteur's film as anything by John Cassavetes or Woody Allen-- it has the same sort of daring, the same desire not to settle for less than showing us something we've never seen before. A bold, grand sense of old-style craftsmanship infuses everything in "Star Wars", and the film delivers on the promise contained in its subtitle. At the time, it really was a new hope.
The opening installment of the greatest trilogy in cinematic history...
Truly a landmark film. When it came out, there had never been anything like it before, and it truly caused quite a stir. I would contend that it is not as good as its sequel, Empire Strikes Back; but it is still a great movie. There is humor, action, and some heartfelt moments. It is also our introduction to some great characters that people will never forget - Chewbacca, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Obi Wan Kenobi...and of course everyone's favorite villain, Darth Vader. Alec Guinness really is outstanding in this movie. His role as Luke's first mentor is understated and believable...his somewhat tired attitude in retrospect seems very understandable after watching the prequels - after all he's been through, it is very believable when he tells Luke, "I'm getting to old for this sort of thing." The visual effects are not only groundbreaking, but they still hold up very well even in this CGI-effects laden era. I would contend that ILM's use of modeling and lighting in the old films actually lends a more believable look to the action scenes than the prequels' use of video-game style battles and sensory overload. There is great chemistry between the actor's - and while Luke is a bit annoying, the back and forth of Han and Chewbacca, and C-3PO and R2-D2, as well as Leia's chemistry with Han and Luke, make this movie extremely entertaining on an emotional level - it also makes you care about the characters. Let us compare the lightsaber duel of this movie with that from Phantom Menace. Although the acrobatics and sheer fury of the duel just are not there in A New Hope, we actually feel something when Obi-Wan allows Vader to strike him down. Conversely, when Qui-Gon Jinn is slain, there is not the same (if any) feeling after it is done. Well, I'm rambling now. But this movie has it all. Space battles, lightsaber duels (a la Samurai flicks), chase sequences, thinly veiled references to the Western genre in the Canteen on Tatooine. A Truly great adventure that, as it ended, was really just beginning.
The first is the best
I loved this movie. I have always loved this movie. I always will love this movie. It is simply amazing. The actors, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamil and Carrie Fisher all did an excellent job. However my favorite character was Darth Vader. He is evil with being ugly or digusting. The high level of quality from a film made in 1977 is astounding. Still being from the seventies, this film has some pretty interesting hair. But it is THE film that defined how science fiction movies are supposed to be. I did my term paper on the affects of Star Wars on the science fiction genre and the movie industry itself. Needless to say I didn't have to work that hard, the movies speaks for itself. If you haven't seen it, watch it. I love this film.
Star Wars!!!!!!!!!!!!
Star Wars, now known as Episode IV: A New Hope, is the perfect showcase of everything that makes a movie great. It is one of those occasions where everything in the film seems to of perfectly fell in place(although if you know the story behind the making of it, it wasn't so smooth). The acting, directing, writing, production design, special effects, and anything else I've forgotten, is simply top-notch. This movie did so many things for film, most notably the special effects, but it also gave us three of the greatest young actors of the late 70s and 80s, Mark Hammill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford. Then the film also created the blockbuster, and is the definition of what a blockbuster should be(humor, emotion, action, heart). On the last point the action is probably the most exhilarating and exciting action I've ever seen on film, the Death Star Trench Run is the definite highlight of the film. This film is just simply superb and is picture perfect, and is definitely one of the greatest and most memorable films of all-time. It's hard to believe that this all sprung from one man's imagination, George Lucas(writer/director of the film). STAR WARS!!!!!!!!!

Rating: A picture perfect 10 out of 10!!!!!!!
game changer, but the saga peaked at the start
There is no denying that this film was the start of something big, and you cannot take away from it the fact that it changed the face of the sci-fi genre, maybe even the whole film industry, in to what it is today. For its time, the effects, story, characters and detail in this film are are beyond exemplary. Most action and sci-fi films aim to be compared to star wars, a feat that is rare and, in my opinion, has only been achieved by Terminator 1 and 2, the lord of the rings trilogy and marvels: the avengers.

A new hope works brilliantly as a first chapter to a saga, however, I feel that it works better as a stand alone film. Unlike many films that are a 'first part', it has a beginning, middle and end, tells everything that needs to be told and leaves the characters in a satisfying place. I feel that having seen the prequels does not diminish anything about this film like it does to episodes five and six.

The only problem that I have is that the original theatrical release doesn't really exist anymore, you can only really get the version that has been tinkered with by Lucas to put needless CGI extras in. This is the original and best of the star wars saga, however i do feel that many people see this through rose tinted glasses and will not see any faults in any of the three original films, even though they are happy to say that the three prequels do not exist as far as they are concerned. Awesome film, great legacy, and now that Disney has the rights away from Lucas, a great future too.
One of the Most Overrated Movies of All Time
Why is the movie considered on of the best sci-fi movies of all time? It makes almost no sense from start to finish:

Vader kills one of the passengers, then says he wants the passengers alive.

The gun operators don't shoot down the escape pod just to be sure that no one is inside.

C-3PO and R2-D2 somehow survive atmospheric entry and walk away without a scratch after plummeting to the surface of Tatooine at a rapid speed.

Both droids end up in the same sand crawler despite leaving in opposite directions.

Luke finds R2-D2 on the vast, empty desert planet of Tatooine before the sand people do despite waiting until the next morning to start looking.

Luke walks away from getting hit by a club with spikes on it without a scratch or bruise of any kind.

Obi-Wan waits almost 20 years to give Luke his father's lightsaber instead of introducing it to him at a young age so he'd be more trained with the weapon by the time he's a teenager.

It wasn't explained until 2005 how Obi-Wan even got the lightsaber in the first place.

It's never explained why Obi-Wan didn't tell Luke about his relationship with Leia right after they viewed her message.

Why did the stormtroopers kill Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen instead of simply asking them if they had seen the two droids? There's no reason to believe they wouldn't have cooperated.

How did Han, Luke, and Obi-Wan know their way around the Death Star considering none of them had ever been on it before?

How did Obi-Wan know how to turn off the tractor beam?

How did the dianoga end up in the trash compactor and how has it survived up to this point?

Why did neither Obi-Wan nor Darth Vader use the Force during their duel? We know Obi-Wan has experience with the Force because he used a Jedi mind trick on a stormtrooper earlier, and we know Vader has experience with the Force because he nearly choked one of his military generals earlier, so what was holding them back?

How was Luke able to take out several TIE fighters despite having never operated the guns on the Millennium Falcon before?

After our heroes escape the Death Star, it's revealed that Vader wanted them to escape the whole time so they could track their ship back to their secret headquarters. But, if that was the case, then why did the stormtroopers and TIE fighters bother firing on them at all and risk killing them?

How does Luke master flying an X-wing so quickly?

How is Luke able to use the Force to destroy the Death Star? The only Force training he had was a very brief introduction to the general concept with Obi-Wan, so it almost certainly wasn't enough to instantly master it on his first try.

Han Solo ex-Machina's Luke out of trouble during the assault on the Death Star despite not knowing which X-wing Luke was in (or if he was still alive). Also, how did Han and the Resistance get on the same radio frequency to allow communication with other ships?

What was the point of the medal-giving scene at the end? Those medals are never seen again in any of the other movies. That scene could've been cut from the movie entirely and nothing would've been lost.

Not mention that C-3PO is ANNOYING AF and contributes almost nothing to the story...

...Or that Luke is a whiny brat throughout most of the movie...

...Or that Leia literally sits on the sidelines the whole time while the men do all the work (casually sat in the pilot's seat during the attack by TIE fighters after escaping the Death Star and casually stood over a monitor while Han and Luke destroyed the Death Star)...

...Or the fact that the lightsaber fight between Obi-Wan and Vader was so poorly choreographed, it looked like a third-grader created it...

This movie may have been good for its time but doesn't hold up today NEARLY as well as most people think. I like The Force Awakens more than this because it had better acting, better action, more impressive special FX, a female lead that isn't on the sidelines the whole movie, an ending that isn't pointless, a better droid (BB-8), and fewer plot holes.

And before anyone says, "But The Force Awakens is just A New Hope on repeat!"

The Lion King is just Hamlet on repeat... Avatar is just Pocahontas on repeat... All 3 of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man movies stole their plot from each other... A Bug's Life stole its plot from Antz... X-Men: Days of Future Past stole its plot from Terminator 2... Big Hero 6 stole its plot from X-Men: First Class... The Incredibles stole its plot from The Lost World: Jurassic Park... Man of Steel stole its plot from The Bible... The Dark Knight Rises stole its plot from Hook... Moana stole its plot from Hercules (1997)... Captain America: Civil War stole its plot from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice... Finding Nemo stole its plot from Toy Story 2... Ant-Man stole its plot from Iron Man... Toy Story 3 stole its plot from Child's Play 2... The Terminator stole its plot from Halloween (1978)... Inside Out (2015) stole its plot from Osmosis Jones...

That's not an excuse. Just because you were first doesn't mean you're better...TFA > ANH
