Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: [Star Wars] will undoubtedly emerge as one of the true classics in the genre of science fiction/fantasy films. In any event, it will be thrilling audiences of all ages for a long time to come.
Fresh: Some of Lucas' scriptwriting is clever, a hip updating of the stilted language of the old Flash Gordon serials. Also, the film is dotted with weird-looking creatures who might have stepped out of the pages of a Marvel comic book.
Fresh: If anybody wondered where Lucas has been since the release nearly four years ago of American Graffiti, the answer is at hand. Star Wars... is the most exciting picture to be released this year -- exciting as theater and exciting as cinema.
Fresh: Star Wars is not a film to be written about, it's an experience. It's that rare experience for both adults and kids that shortchanges neither. Go -- and enjoy.
The force is with us!
