How could anyone ever give this movie anything other than a 5? I don't think it's possible! This would happen to be one of the best cult classics known to the world today! I have personally been a fan since I was 4 years old! The dream of being there next to that hot Luke Skywalker and that Big Walking Carpet and the Scruffy-lookin' Nerf Herder has been the one dream that has given the population of the 70's and the new audience of today (if not in those exact words) the power to keep this great film in the VCRs and DVD players around the world! May the Force be with you!

This film was, for it's time, one of the best action/sci-fi that I had ever seen to that point of my life and definitely the biggest impact. I loved it then, when I was 8 years old, and still love it to this day.

The technical effects are now dated somewhat but for the time, this film was absolutely top notch in that aspect. The acting was somewhat rough, but the story got them through that. Harrison Ford (Han Solo) did a very good job keeping it together I thought, along with a veteran thespian Sir Alec Guinness (Obi Wan Kenobee), the cast was strong and steady.

David Prowse/James Earl Jones (Darth Vader) did a masterful job at keeping the audience on edge with the "darkside" mantra wailing throughout the film.

The story was the stereotypical "princess needs saving" and the hero coming in to "swoop her off her feet" but had enough back story (as we would soon find out with all of the books) to keep the film flowing.

I love this film, did then, and do now...
