The New York Times
Everyone treats his material with the proper combination of solemnity and good humor that avoids condescension. One of Mr. Lucas's particular achievements is the manner in which he is able to recall the tackiness of the old comic strips and serials...

Variety
A magnificent film. George Lucas set out to make the biggest possible adventure fantasy out of his memories of serials and older action epics, and he succeeded brilliantly.

AWESOME
As an 11 year old boy seeing this for the first time I was mesmorized. This movie was (light)years ahead of it's time. The thing that made it great was it's simplicity. Good versus evil.

classic space wars movie
Great special effects for its time. Lots of fun and space action. Everyone know the master villain, of course. Tons of parodies have been made about this movie, and like every classic, it has lots of fanatic fans (Star Wars vs Lord of the Rings!).

You need to start here
I think that if you plan on watching all the Star Wars movies you should do it in the order they were released to theaters and start from the first one.
