It is expansive but more tightly time-framed in terms of plot. I wish it were a handful of minutes shorter, but this is my single caveat about another richly imaginative, engrossing and spectacular motion picture from the redoubtable George Lucas. [18 May 1980]

It balances bloodshed with charm, spectacle with childlike glee. It's a near flawless movie of its kind.
