Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope review.

This is the review for Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope requested by throughtwoblueeyes .

This review is going to a little different than other reviews because we are super huge Star Wars fans so we can't write a critical review so if you don't like Star Wars you will hate this review.

If you have seen the movie please give it any score from 1 to 10 (you can give a higher score than 10 because it is Star Wars).

The Good: Everything, Best cast of all time, Special effects look better than a lot of movies today, Never a dull moment, Best soundtrack of all time, Second best movie of all time, Han Solo is the best movie hero of all time, Darth Vader is the best movie villain of all time, Some very funny scenes, The most revolutionary movie of all time,Near perfection, Lots of other great things,

Plot: The galaxy is in a state of civil war. Spies for the Rebel Alliance have stolen plans to the Galactic Empire's Death Star: a space station capable of annihilating an entire planet. Rebel leader Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) is in possession of the plans, but her ship is captured by Imperial forces under the command of the evil lord Darth Vader (David Prowse). Before she is captured, Leia hides the plans in the memory of a droid called R2-D2 (Kenny Baker), along with a holographic recording. The small droid escapes to the surface of the desert planet Tatooine with fellow droid C-3PO (Anthony Daniels).

The two droids are quickly captured by Jawa traders, who sell the pair to moisture farmer Owen Lars (Phil Brown) and his nephew, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). While Luke is cleaning R2-D2, he accidentally triggers part of Leia's holographic message, in which she requests help from Obi-Wan Kenobi. The only "Kenobi" Luke knows of is an old hermit named Ben Kenobi (Alec Guinness) who lives in the nearby hills; Owen, however, dismisses any connection, suggesting that Obi-Wan is dead.

During dinner, R2-D2 escapes to seek Obi-Wan. By the time Luke discovers his escape it is too late for pursuit. The next morning Luke and C-3PO look for R2-D2, and just after finding him they are attacked by sandmen. The attackers are then scared off by Ben Kenobi, who reveals himself to be Obi-Wan. Ben then takes Luke and the droids to his home, where he tells Luke of his days as a Jedi Knight. The Jedi were the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy before being wiped out by the Empire. Obi-Wan tells Luke of the Force, from which the Jedi draw their power. He goes on to tell Luke of his father, Anakin Skywalker, another Jedi who fought alongside Obi-Wan. Contrary to his uncle's claims, Luke learns that his father was betrayed and killed by Darth Vader, Obi-Wan's former pupil who turned to the "dark side of the Force". Luke is presented with his father's lightsaber, the Jedi's weapon of choice.

Obi-Wan views Leia's complete message. Leia begs Obi-Wan to take R2-D2 and the Death Star plans to her home planet of Alderaan, where her father will be able to retrieve and analyze them. Obi-Wan asks Luke to learn the ways of the Force and join him on the trip. Luke initially refuses, offering Obi-Wan transit to a local space port. When he discovered that his home has been destroyed and his aunt and uncle were killed by Imperial stormtroopers in search of the droids, Luke agrees to join Obi-Wan and travel to Alderaan. The two hire smuggler Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and his Wookiee co-pilot Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) to transport them on their ship, the Millennium Falcon. Watch the movie to see what happens next.

  3. Right. I last saw it about 4 years ago, but yeah it is one of the most memorable movies ever,even when one can't keep track of what is going on. (I couldn't hear)Since I am not addicted to Star Wars, though, I'll give it a nine.

  4. Best. Movie. Ever.

    ANH is such a classic. I mean, Princess Leia, Luke, Obi, and Han are the coolest characters!!
