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...

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

With its feints at horror and pathos, the third Star Wars film is the most Disney-esque in its emotional outline, yet that outline is buried beneath an obnoxiously hyped-up pace that reduces the emotions to rubble.

In scope and ambition, Jediresembles nothing so much as the next level of a computer game, with a new environment, new gadgets and new creatures.

Though it looks almost too polished, a handful of eye-smacking action scenes were breakthroughs in precomputer cinematic graphics. And when the film moves, it does so with blazing energy and awesome noise.

Jedi may not be George Lucas's crown jewel, but his trilogy as a whole is as good as film fantasy gets.

The old Star Wars gang are back doing what they've done before, but this time with a certain evident boredom.

A mediocre Star Wars is better than no Star Wars at all.

The film is a huge, rousing finale that resolves all plot twists, settles all accounts, reunites old friends and sweeps to a climax that all but blows the theater apart!
