Star Wars the empire strikes back is a masterpiece, it is and will always be one of the best films ever made, because the whole entire movie is flawless. This by far is one of the best sequels ever made in film history. And the movie is so original and I love how it doesn't want to play it safe. This isn't just another Star Wars movie, it's a grand space opera, with themes of love, family and destiny, it's by far the best Star Wars movie in the whole series.

Arguably the best sequel ever made, The Empire Strikes Back is just as amazing as A New Hope.

It is difficult to make a sequel that can top something as great as Star Wars, but The Empire Strikes Back has easily set the bar for sequels nowadays. It continues A New Hope's story while adding darker and more character moments. Yet again, the special effects are to praise as they have never looked better. However, the biggest praise this movie can get is the fact that they took characters we cared so much about and just made them so much closer to our hearts, by tearing us apart emotionally. The Empire Strikes Back takes the series in a new direction that is darker and more engaging, that the Star Wars films have yet to go back to.

The best sequel to date, and in my opinion, better than the original 1977 flick.

"The Empire Strikes Back" is widely considered one of the definitive "sequels that are superior to the original", and for good reason. The film is one of the driving forces in what made Star Wars so popular to begin with.

The film introduces famous characters and iconic sequences, and tells a story more mature than the original. Whereas "A New Hope" plays out similar to that of a fairy tale, "The Empire Strikes Back" sheds light to some darker truths: that the heroes don't always come out on top and fighting for what's right can have consequences.

The film also expands upon the original film, introducing new worlds as well as expanding upon the Empire itself, making it appear more threatening than the first film. The film also solidified Darth Vader as one of the most iconic villains in film history.

Years later, "The Empire Strikes Back" remains a masterpiece and a huge factor into Star Wars' popularity.

Best movie ever fuck everyone else

One of the greatest sequels of all time! Not often do you find a sequel that is just as good or even better than the film it's following.
September 19, 2017
The first sequel to the original Star Wars is still, arguably, the best in the series. Deeper, richer, and more textured than the first film, The Empire Strikes Back expands the scope of Star Wars without sacrificing the thrills. It's the Star Wars film that all others should aspire to. Again, the pre-1997 version is a classic of cinema.

Score: 10/10
