As a first-time watcher, I'm extremely impressed by the special effects! This film feels extremely ahead of its time with the incredible shots and convincing (for its time) visual effects!
As for the writing, it felt a little lackluster for me. The dialogue was a letdown with a lot of one-liners and emotionless exclamations like "I can't believe he's gone." The actors for Luke and Princess Leia felt robotic at some points as if they were reciting their lines from a paper. I lost immersion over Luke's very monotone reaction to the death of his uncle and aunt or Obi-Wan.
As a whole, the movie is good.
