A timeless classic! It introduced the world to something new, unusual, yet spectacular. The effects are obviously outdated now, but that has never stopped me from appreciating this masterpiece. The movie is actually perfectly structured and very good. The original save the Princess story but including lightsabers, blasters and a Death Star that blows up planets. The binary sunset remains one of the best scenes in movie history even though there is no dialogue, the force theme is undoubtably John Williams finest work.
I have always had special love for movies which introduce us to whole new worlds, so even though it might not be best, A New Hope holds a special place in my heart.

A classic which kick started the whole, wonderfully quirky Star Wars universe.
Not all Star Wars films are created equally but this is one of the best with kitsch jokes, strong characters and wonderful, simple story lines exploring good vs evil.
Når man ser den i dag er det selvfølgelig virkelig dårlig kvalitet, men hvis man ser bort fra det er den super fin.

Just those two sounds are iconic. A definite watch you can find on disney or somewhere else but it's easier there. Sith or jedi?

Short and simple. What’s not to enjoy? A well put together movie with a great cast and crew, a story that leaves you both satisfied and craving, and one too many viewing that are just as enjoyable each rewatch.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...
1977 saw the release of many important classics in cinematic history. A Bridge Too Far, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Smokey and the Bandit, Eraserhead, The Spy Who Loved Me, Annie Hall, and Suspiria are just a few. However, the single most important, iconic, and well loved films to come out of this year was the incomparable Star Wars (aka Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope). The film is undeniably George Lucas’ highest and most impactful directing achievement. There is nothing at all bad to say about this film. Such has been proven by countless film lovers, critics, and moviegoers alike since its release 43 years ago. But, what hasn’t been said about this classic franchise and film? Everything already has. Its OUTSTANDING special effects, great use of motion control (far superior, in my opinion, to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey (a film I’ve already reviewed and praised highly)), unbelievable characterization (and iconic characters in general, including Harrison Ford’s Han Solo, Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher’s Princess Leia Organa, Anthony Daniels’ C-3PO, and Kenny Baker’s R2-D2 as the movies’ main galactic heroes) and production among many other positive points allowed this movie to become stylistically unique even today. Atop all that is included a legendary film score commissioned for composer John Williams, which presents to the viewer (and the film) a largely emotional imprint that just lures the viewer in. Ask any cinephile and they’ll tell you that Star Wars: A New Hope changed the history and face of movies forever. It’s safe to say that if you want to have an enjoyable, fun, joyful, entertaining, and truly great film experience, I cannot recommend strongly this classic and arguably the best sci-fi film in cinematic history.

Timeless classic. Forever immortalised by the cantina scene.
As mentioned in my rogue 1 review, these films should be watched in partnership - could even be torn out of the core trilogy.

Den første Star wars film holder stadigvæk 100p idag.
Fantastisk rumeventyr med mindeværdige karakterer som for altid vil ligge tæt på mit hjerte.
Ved gensyn bliver man overrasket over hvor mørk den til tider kan være og det er ikke en dårlig ting

This is by far the best first film to set up a series/franchise I've ever seen. It is so phenomenally well written and flows so incredibly well, it's a common joke to say that there were people who thought it is a documentary and that's a huge testament to what this film achieved.
Effective in its simplicity, with a strong cast carrying it through a sometimes cheesy script.
One of the greatest movies ever made. What else can I say?
