Star Wars (Film Review)

Aug 16, 2012
The force is strong with me so I decided to review one of my favorite film of all time.
Star Wars is one of my favorite movie of all time and it's my turn to review the celebrated sci-fi classic.

Princess Leia is held hostage by the evil forces of Galactic Empire in their plan to take over the galaxy. When R2-D2 and C3PO was sent to a deserted planet called Tattoine, the two droids met Luke Skywalker and Captain Skywalker and joined forces together from rescuing Leia and stop Darth Vader's plans before the Death Star annihilate all hope of restoring freedom to the galaxy.

Star Wars. Not Star Wars Episode 4 or A New Hope. Just Star Wars. I'll just stick to what is it called before and what it still be called today. So, I had been wanting to review Star Wars a long time ago until I popped in the film last night just to refresh myself for this one.

So my father has been a fan of the trilogy, and that's how I get influenced watching this film. When that yellow letters blasted on screen with John William's score in the background, I got linked and watched the film for like 10-15 times already.

What I liked about the movie is that there are no characters left behind. Even the supporting characters like Chewbacca, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and even Luke's foster parents are well-developed not just in the movie, but in the whole trilogy as well.

Mark Hamill is so good portraying as the venturesome Luke Skywalker. Harrison Ford is such an exceptional actor. And the way he portrays Han Solo is different and original from his roles in other movies. Han Solo is one of my favorite character in the movie because he is bad-ass. I don't have knowledge who portrays Darth Vader in this movie, but Darth Vader is the best villain ever put on film next to Ledger's The Joker and Hannibal Lecter.

The visuals are beautiful and outstanding in this film. 2001: A Space Odyssey might be ahead and used the effects for the first time, but Star Wars is the first one to make special effects with motion and speed. Just like George Lucas said 'special effects were just a tool' until he create the annoying character ever to put on film (you know what I mean.).

The story is great. The visuals were outstanding. Performances were top-notched. Bear with me, I had no more words to describe this movie, i'm running out of words.

'Star Wars' is a revolutionary film you would love to tell your kids with. And that say it was my favorite science fiction film ever.

The geek rates it 9.3/10. I will be back for my reviews of The Bourne Legacy.

For now, why not check the original trailer from Star Wars:
