Pros: This movie was revolutionary for it’s time and made way for, and inspired, the creation of countless other movies. It has an all star cast ranging from Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill to James Earl Jones. The story was amazing and immersed you to a new world like no other movie can. The soundtrack, composed by John Williams, was so perfect that even if you haven’t seen the movies you would still recognize some of the songs.
Cons: The shooting doesn’t look real but it was filmed in 1977 and to be honest it looked more real than the prequel movies.
Final Rating: 10/10, a cinema masterpiece which has stood the test of time.
