Revenge is Sweet
This, is one of those times where it's great when the bad guys win. I had grown up watching old westerns and kiddie movies, where it was all good guys win at the end. And when I first saw this when the Original (Best) Trilogy reopened in theaters, my parents rushed me to the nearest cinema. I was astounded. Great acting. Even better directing, it's the greatest space movie pretty much ever made.

It's only better because "Star Wars" set this one up perfectly. And it allowed a suspenseful "Return of the Jedi", which needed all it could get, because it was the worst of the Original's, but still pretty darn good. Overall even though it was made in the 80's it was still captivating to a boy used to computer graphics. The absolute best part was the final lightsaber battle between Vader and Luke where... well, I won't spoil it for those who haven't heard the line.

An Original Blockbuster
The second installment of the original Star Wars trilogy benefits from coming from a time when there were very few films that could be called that. If it was made and released now it would be lost in a sea of big budget battles of good and evil aimed at making big money for a week or two and then disappearing.

Thankfully it's from a time when it became one of the biggest films of the year or even the decade and it went on to inspire what the film industry is today. Without Star Wars and its army of nerds leading the way, there is no Marvel attempt to take over films and no comic-con and you would be looking at a very different world.

This film has great moment and legendary quotes or misquotes and of course it has its flaws but what blockbuster doesn't and in the end it is a Star Wars film so it's worth watching.

Better than Titanic!!!
While the Titanic made all the rich people (with the exception of Molly Brown and Rose) automatically uncaring, snobby, and thoughtless just because they were rich and needed a couple of villains for the story, The Empire Strikes Back did not portray "the villain" in a completely evil light. Sympathy is induced when we see the back of Darth Vader's scarred and pasty head. When he tells Luke of their blood relationship, some feeling is allowed to creep in, telling us that he is not just some maniacal killing machine, but a human, fallen from grace, yet able to retain some sense of love, however twisted it may be.

this is a good movie.
For the 1977 film, see Star Wars (film). For other uses, see Star Wars (disambiguation). Star Wars is an American epic space opera franchise centered on a film series created by George Lucas. The film series, consisting of two trilogies (and an upcoming third), has spawned an extensive media franchise called the Expanded Universe including books, television series, computer and video games, and comic books. These supplements to the franchise resulted in significant development of the series' fictional universe, keeping the franchise active in the 16- year interim between the two film trilogies. The franchise depicts a galaxy described as "far, far away" in the distant past, and commonly portrays Jedi as a representation of good, in conflict with the Sith, their evil counterpart. Their weapon of choice, the lightsaber, is commonly recognized in popular culture. The franchise's story lines contain many themes, with strong influences from philosophy and religion.

Slightly better than the Original
The first Star Wars movie, is a Sci-fi and cinematic masterpiece. But where Star Wars capitalized, Empire Strikes Back took it to the next level.

Here's what I think of the movie:

Story - I'm pretty sure we all know the story of Star Wars. A Galactic Empire is empowering the galaxy, and a Rebel Alliance tries to stop it. Today, it's sort of a cliché plot but back then, it was imagination skyrocketing into the heavens. Now, thats the plot of Star Wars. The story spans from a battle on the frigid planet of Hoth, to a space dogfight in an asteroid field, to Cloud City where the greatest plot twist in the history of cinema, is reveled. The film ends on a cliffhanger which leads to Return of the Jedi. I'm not going to spoil it, but I don't think I would need to because I'm willing to bet that about 99.99% of people have already seen this movie anyway(to that .01%, where the hell have you been?).

-Rating 10/10

Characters - The characters from the original movie are back, including Luke, Han, Leia, C3P0 and R2D2, and of course, Darth Vader. But the films also introduces some new characters as well, including Lando, The Emperor, Boba Fett, and Yoda. The Emperor doesn't really play a big part in the movie(I think he only has like, 10 lines) and Boba's name is never really mentioned. However, Yoda plays a big part by teaching Luke the ways of the force, and Lando, who is Han's old pal, plays a big part by betraying our heroes and giving them to Vader. Of course, he's still a good guy, he had to hand them over. Overall, I'd say the characters are still great.

- Rating 10/10

Visuals - This was back when Star Wars movies didn't rape the fabric of CGI. So what you see in the movie were real things. The Walkers, asteroids, X-Wings, Tie Fighters, everything. The original Star Wars set the standards for Special Effects with the light sabers, Death Stars blowing up and everything. Empire Strikes Back isn't any different. The Effects are still awesome and look great.

-Rating 10/10

Music - The Star Wars theme is (of course) still here and it's one of the most recognized themes in cinema. You only need to hear a second of the Star Wars theme, and you'll know what it is. Like any other Star Wars film, the music is composed by John Williams, so everything is played by an orchestra. Even though it's great the here the Star Wars theme in all it's nostalgic glory, the music thats played is still just as great.

-Rating 10/10

Overall - Empire Strikes back is my favorite Star Wars film and is one of my favorite movies. If I had to make a Top 10 list of my favorite movies, about 15 movies would be tied for the #1 spot, and this would be one of them. Everything about it is just perfect.

Final rating : 10/10

One of the best, what can i say
I always loved watching Star-wars and all kinds of Fantasy, Fiction and Sci-Fi genres TV-shows and Movies.

Well, coming to Empire Strikes Back, it sure did gave me goosebumps while watching. cant ignore rest of the parts! they are much Awesome and most entertaining as always.

Loved how the Plot twists and turns, always leaving Fans in suspense. Also, conflict between the brave but out-gunned Rebel Alliance and the mighty Galactic Empire Spices things up. it all comes back to the myth of the hero's destiny.

"Star Wars will do very nicely for those lucky enough to be children or unlucky enough never to have grown up" You all know what i mean. :)

Probably one of the most influential movies on my life
ESB is one of the best science fiction movies of all time. In most circles, there tend to be a division between 'regular' movies and science fiction ones, but the Empire Strikes Back not only wrote the importance of the previously establish Star Wars saga into history, but borough the Joneses and Kims and N'Danou's and Guptas and everyone else from all over the world a re-lived curiosity about a genre that often is exclusively reserved to geeks, gamers, and goblins. The first star wars movie was a feat in special effects and something quite new. The Empire Strikes back, however, drew us into a new world with an amazing conviction. We were all so very much standing next to Luke and Han, so that they have almost helped share their world with us, but also influence popular culture today in a somewhat surrealistic concept, where the actors/actresses step out of the TV/silver screen and dictate the 'real' world, using their 'fantasy' world to justify for their candor - in an almost 'emperor's new clothes' fashion. Only the greatest movies have the ability to enmesh reality and the fiction on the screen. Lord of the Rings did it, Hitchcock did it, and Lucas did it! Lucas made us believe in a world far away, long long time ago, which any other creator would have made seem like another Star Trek or Stargate episode (like the prequels).

I am your father
In my opinion this is not only better than the first film or the fourth whatever but it is the best in the entire franchise. I loved it from the first minute until the last, I love star wars even since I was about 4 years old and I used to hate this movie but when I watch it now it's just amazing. Also in this film great Star Wars characters make their debut with the likes of Yoda and Orlnado Calrizion (if that is how you spell it and I can't remember if it is Orlando and Lando so excuse me if I got it wrong.)

This film starred Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford & Carrie Fisher

I highly recommend this film to all you sci-fi fans

****/***** not outstanding but very good

Mysterious sci-fi - fantasy
Unexpectedly thought provoking, as adventurous as the first one - an immersive journey into the star wars universe -- escapism at its finest!

It's a visually beautiful movie, the more I analysed it, the more surprised I was to find out how good the directing and cinematography this masterpiece of a movie has. When cinematography and directing wasn't in my vocabulary, I wasn't focusing on those aspects of movies, unconsciously, I, as a kid, was still mesmerized over how visually pleasing the movie's cinematography and directing was, without even being aware of it.

Empire's score composed by John Williams: Williams has perfectly written the music for this movie, it's powerful when they show the empire's greatness with ''the imperial march'', it's mysterious in unclear, foggy locations. In my opinion, the only Star Wars score that surpasses Empire's score is Return of the Jedi's score.

Not really any standout performances, but the actors and the writing gives the characters charm. We see the characters exchanging banter, and other well written interaction, developing the characters well, we also see them being a bit more developed since the previous installment.

Practical effects' durability is shown here; it still holds up, it even looks better than most modern movies, and most of my favourite movies are even modern movies.

It's the most well written Star Wars movie to-date, it's original and can't really be compared to many other movies. It's memorable, mysterious, shocking. Some may find the dialogue cheesy, some find it witty. It even brings a puppet to life, making him one of the best movie characters of all time. The universe expands from each scene, the universe feels grand. The movie's twists works, it's difficult to predict what will happen next.

It's a journey like nothing else, fun from beginning to its end. Fast paced adventure, exploring the Star Wars universe. Highly recommended for audience of all sorts, the movie has it all for people with all kinds of taste in movies.

the King of Sci-Fi soaps
It's virtually impossible to review a Star Wars film without resorting to comparisons between the various episodes these days - I'll attempt to avoid getting into a whole rave about the generally dull, flat Prequel Trilogy, and focus on why I believe the Empire Strikes Back is the equal of it's ground-breaking predecessor Star Wars (A New Hope)with both being lightyears ahead of the other 4 installments in terms of imagination, plot, ingenuity and especially *heart*.

When Star Wars opened up Lucas' Galaxy to us all and gave us one helluva swashbuckling ride, a sequel obviously seemed enticing but not particularly necessary - Star Wars (A New Hope) is a fairly self-contained adventure, the Goodies win in the End and are awarded medals from the rescued Princess - all nicely wrapped up. *But* Lucas had more of his tale to tell, and what's more had a pretty good angle on the follow-up to his smash hit ... Leaving Darth Vader beaten, spinning outta control, but still *alive* in Star Wars was no accident, while this dire villain still existed within this Galaxy there was still conflict to be resolved ... Elaborations on themes from the first film were genuinely surprising and captivating - people forget that when Luke 'wills' his lightsabre to him in an act of telekenisis during his captivity in the Ice Monster's cave, it was the first time visual *evidence* of 'the Force' was really seen - in A New Hope, Luke, Obi-Wan and Vader had dabbled in telepathy and using the Force as a focusing tool, but Luke's 'magical' and timely retrieval of his weapon at the start of the Empire Strikes Back was a genuinely gasp-inducing moment the first time it was seen ... A welcome vision of Obi-Wan's 'Force ghost' reveals why Kenobi was so at peace with impending death during A New Hope's lightsabre duel with Vader, the disembodied voice that guided Luke has now become a full blown apparition, able to dispense wisdom and advice like the Ben of old ... The magnitude of the Empire itself is amplified via a star-sea full of leviathon Ships and John Williams magnificent 'Imperial March', which is introduced in the Empire Strikes Back for the first time in the series ... Darth Vader is more menacing than ever, using his Force abilities to dispense with underlings that displease him by choking them to death. His obsession with seeking out and crushing the Rebellion gains added resonance for both he and Rebel/Trainee Jedi/Hero Luke Skywalker with the revelation of *THE* secret of the 80's (no, not 'who killed J.R,' the other one ..) Both the shadowy Emperor, a man so Evil and Powerful that even Darth Vader demures to him, and his counterpart, Jedi Master Yoda are introduced for the first time in the Empire Strikes Back, the relationships between the various characters take on greater complexity and the music is quite amazing throughout ... The Editing, and the Direction of Irwin Kershner, both contribute heavily to giving this Episode a very different feel to all the other Star Wars installments

- here's a few more points as to why I rank the Empire Strikes Back 'Equal Best' :

* It's the only one of the 6 films that *doesn't* feature the desert-setting of 'Tatooine' - so beautifully shot in A New Hope, but thereafter not particularly inspiring ...

* the planets/locations that are used are the most vividly drawn of the series - Dagobah, Hoth, the asteroid belt encountered by Han Solo and companions, and most original of all 'Cloud City' with it's sunset views and labyrinth of chutes

* Yoda's ruminations on the force is probably the best dialogue in the entire series

* *THE* secret, which turns the mood of the entire film on it's head

* Luke's surreal encounter in a Cave 'strong with the Dark side' is one of the few metaphorical moments in the series, eerily shot partially in slow motion

* Lucas and co. back up the joyous Cantina scene from A New Hope with quirky characters like the Bounty Hunters and the Ugnauts

* the chemistry between Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford is very good, and their romantic scenes are handled with far more aplomb than any other in the series

It was all downhill after the Empire Strikes Back for the Star Wars series as far as I'm concerned, but the joy I've had watching both A New Hope and the Empire Strikes Back far outweighs any lingering disappointment associated with the rest of the series ...
