  • The best of three Star Wars films, and the most thought-provoking. After the space opera cheerfulness of the original film, this one plunges into darkness and even despair, and surrenders more completely to the underlying mystery of the story. It is because of the emotions stirred in Empire that the entire series takes on a mythic quality that resonates back to the first and ahead to the third. This is the heart. show more

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

  • Technical virtuosity and entertainment ingenuity. show more

    Yoda is enough said to be the best supporting character. The effects are just amazing for it\'s time and just had a flattering story. I mean the space ships and all these planets are just so realistic and can really be created. That shows that this is a great, well-made sequel.
