Better than the original Star Wars! 'The Empire Strikes Back' expands upon the mythology from the first and gives the audience more memorable character moments. 'A New Hope' was needed to set the stage, but this is the definitive Star Wars movie. Improved fight sequences, slightly less corny dialogue, and the first film where we actually get to see Darth Vader as an intimidating presence. Mark Hamill's acting improves and Luke's relationship to Yoda is more interesting than Obi-Wan. And Carrie Fischer continues to make Leia more than a mere damsel in distress. She is an active fighter and stands out as one of the best characters next to Vader.

With taking a darker and more serious tone in response to the destruction of the Death Star in the previous episode, The Empire Strikes Back has it all. The villains, the action, the story. It exceeds Ep. 4 in every single regard and stands to be one of the finest films ever made in the action genre.

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is another GREAT Star Wars movie that is actually a little more better than A New Hope. The cast and the characters are again perfect in the film. Director Irvin Kershner does an even greater work with the film, and again John Williams score is PERFECT and LEGENDARY!

Foreboding and fast paced, the darkest entry into the original series holds up with the inclusion of new planets, new characters, and double crosses. Plus, after all this time, the big reveal still feels like it matters.

Arguably the best of the original trilogy.

The only truly great film of the original trilogy. It does almost everything right except it does slow down a bit in the middle.

the best of all 6 star wars movies ...

After setting some of the most iconic characters ever created, the trilogy continues to set up more and better confrontations and "The Empire Strikes Back" is one of the best sequels of all time! Irvin Kershner may not have been one of the greatest directors but what he did here was simply important for cinema history. This is a two hours long movie that feels like 10 minutes long!

This by far... my favorite movie of all time. I thought that it has a lot to offer and I am glad that I started watching the Star Wars movies, or I might not have seen this gem. Everything in this movie is great. This is simply a flawless movie! I love it! I have gone full critic in my past reviews, but I just can't not geek out about this movie it's so good! 50,000/5

Even better than A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back is one of the best movies of all time for a reason.
