This was honestly a good movie, but the whole thing was just hard to deal with. I love the action and had a brilliant story but just had weird, dark scenes that you thought could be taken out. Overall, good film!

Washington Post
Ultimately, Jedi even backs off some of the more tantalizing possibilities suggested by the cliffhanging scenario of "Empire." This inhibition appears to grow out of consideration for the feelings of the juvenile audience, which can enjoy an abundance of thrills and close calls while resting assured that nothing catastrophic is going to be fall the heroes.

Downright repetitive! [30 May 1983] Full Review

Christian Science Monitor
Less original than the first "Star Wars" and less resonant than "The Empire Strikes Back," but packed with fast-paced action and downright cuddly Ewoks. Full Review

Washington Post
Brings things to an almost cheesy conclusion. Given the gripping, dark elements that creator George Lucas introduced in the two previous films, the third movie’s outcome smacks of PG-rated populism rather than artistic fulfillment. But the experience is still highly entertaining. [Special Edition] Full Review
