Cinema Crazed

For all its faults and goofy plot holes, "Return of the Jedi" is a solid finisher.

The Force was always with it, and time, though not entirely kind, still affirms that most important truth.

This installment is deemed by some fans to be the best of the first Star Wars trilogy in technical accomplishment and narrative involvment, but other critics disagree.

Ewok-filled finale less Force-ful than previous.

Cinema em Cena

A fragilidade de Marquand como diretor e a crescente infantilização da narrativa são facilmente constatáveis, mas ainda assim o filme consegue fechar satisfatoriamente a trilogia original.

It is not as exciting as Star Wars itself, which had the advantage of novelty. But it is better and more satisfying than The Empire Strikes Back...

The finale to the saga's first chapter wobbles from time to time and the mythology grows a little woolly, but that spectacular conclusion is hard to resist.

Reasonably fast paced for its 133-minute length, a visual treat throughout.

The space battles are well-staged and various loose narrative threads are pulled together neatly.

The third Star Wars film, and the sixth in the series, begins with a bang as our heroes try to wrap up the threads left hanging at the end of The Empire Strikes Back.

Return of the Jedi est en bout de ligne juste assez satisfaisant [...] pour que cette trilogie se boucle comme étant marquante.

Among the cinema's most iconic villains — the Wicked Witch of the West; Hannibal Lecter; Nosferatu… — Vader's story arc stands strikingly alone in its climax.
