Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back Reviews
Praise is where praise is deserved. And Empire delivers on all aspects. To even compare this to the stinker that is Last Jedi is an insult to humanity.
The heroes we are rooting for. Han,Leia chewie C3p0 all have excellent character arcs. Luke is growing into his role as a Jedi but has much to learn. Which why his arc is so compelling. Oh and Yoda one of the best characters ever to grace the silver screen.
TLJ characters= zzzzzzzzzz
Darth Vader comes into his own as cinemas greatest villain. His gallows humour "Apology accepted" is pure gold. He really is a terrifying antagonist and has a presence alongside the Imperial march theme.
We've yet to see a villian of such like on a movie screen.
TLJ villians= Kylo is Anakin 2.0 meh
Every scene is crafted in such a way that has atmosphere and a beauty thats mesmerising. The plot is absolute genius and has a subtle build up to the big reveal. Yet still has the impactful shock. When you see it for the first time you are eager to watch Return of the Jedi to see how the story goes. Yet even if you watch it 1000 times this movie never ages or dulls. Its still as entertaining as the first time.
TLJ has failed in so many areas where Empire succeeds. Does anyone care for episode 9? Nope cos TLJ is a trainwreck.
All i can say is enjoy this movie for what it is. One of the greatest films of All time. A pure masterpiece of art by George Lucas!
Take heed Disney.
