Genre: Action/Science-fiction/Fantasy/Adventure/Drama

Starring: Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Alec Guiness, David Prowse, James Earl Jones (voice), Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew

The first of the six Star Wars movies, it narrates the story of the Rebels who have won their first victory over the evil Galactic Empire. Princess Leia (Fisher) learns of the Empires plans of the Death Star, an ultimate machine capable of destroying an entire planet. She sends two droids R2-D2 (Baker) and C-3PO (Daniels) to find a certain Obi-Wan Kanobi (Guiness) and to deliver the information to him. Luke Skywalker (Hamill) stumbles across the droids and helps them locate Kanobi, who turns out to be a good friend of Luke's dead father. They decide to travel across space and get to Princess Leia's father with the information. They hire pilot Han Solo (Ford) and his beast of a sidekick Chewbacca (Mayhew) to take them across space but get captured by the Death Star en route. Luke and Han learn that Princess Leia is a prisoner on the Death Star and set out to rescue her. Meanwhile, Kanobi meets his old pupil Darth Vader (acting by Prowse, voice by Jones) with whom he has a score to settle. The movie has an interesting plot and started a new rage in science-fiction movies during its time. The movies special effects were absolutely amazing for its time and could probably rival movies made 15 years down the line. The action is a tad boring and nobody in the entire movie can seem to shoot a target accurately. It's an all time classic and considering the time period in which it was made the movie excelled in almost everything it did.

Thumbs up: Astounding special effects
Thumbs down: Boring action sequences

Rating: 7.7/10
