Ho poco da dire, uno dei migliori blockbuster della storia del cinema. Capolavoro.

This will forever be looked at as the perfect way to make a sequel, it took everything good from the first film and built on it flawlessly.
November 10, 2018
One of the best movies of all time, plain and simple.

Brilliant meaningful sequel

this is how you do a great second movie. the characters had growth, luke finds out he is not the bad ass he thinks he might be. Vader is shown to be the ultimate bad guy, not being beating by a untrained force user like Kylo Ren getting his ass beat by Rey. and they were smart, not stupid enough to kill luke skywalker and ruin the franchise like disney allowed lucasfilm to do.

The Empire Strikes back is better than A New Hope on every level. The characters are even more fleshed out, it has better pacing, more interesting mythology, and boasts better effects.

9/10

Greatest sequel and possible, no.. surely, movie of all time
October 27, 2018
The best addition to the Star Wars saga. All the fun of the original, with new challenges handed to and already fascinating set of characters.

The pinnacle of expounding on great storytelling in the continuation of the mythological-film that changed everything. Villains reach epic heights in their attempt to catch the Rebels, and heroes see bottomless lows as the Empire haunts their steps. The next chapter examines protagonists as they change from adolescents in this coming of age story. Every-man Luke Skywalker takes an unexpected turn on his Rebellion-led path and emerges haunted by the murky truth and lies crafted around him. Leia is faced with peril and revelations she cannot acknowledge except in the height of stress. Han's smug bravery and brashness are put to the test as our favorite scoundrel comes to terms with his past and destiny. The Star Wars saga lives on in this film, reaching herald heights none of us could ever quite anticipate or imagine. The stories from a galaxy far, far away will teach generations henceforth the craft of modern mythology, ethos, and pathos. Many movies will strive to achieve this capstone, but none will dethrone this majestic champion.

Brilliant, close second to return of the Jedi, saber fight was awful imo.

A rare movie sequel that improves over the original, this movie is full of great twists and stunning looking planets and locations.

Critically the best Star Wars film to date and my personal favourite of the original three Star Wars films. John Williams's music has always been a highlight in the Star Wars films and Empire is his strongest Star Wars soundtrack to date. Simply put this is perfect storytelling.

Best plot in cinema history

Great story telling. Great effects, and a twist that still surprises younger audiences who are being introduced to the films.
