Star Wars

BBBB.5

(out of 5)


This science-fiction blockbuster breathed new life into the genre by creating a space opera (inspired by director George Lucas’s love of Japanese samurai films) in which passionate character conflicts play against beautifully designed interplanetary backdrops.  plays Luke Skywalker, a young farm boy looking for adventure who finds it when he joins up with two Droids (short for androids), an old hermit () and a cad of a mercenary pilot () to rescue a princess () who has been kidnapped by the evil Darth Vader. Followed by an even better sequel, The Empire Strikes Back, this is one you’ll want to watch again and again (provided that you haven’t already).
