An enthralling resolution that brings the epic story of Darth Vader to a close.
December 20, 2019
A premonition of what future Star Wars films would be like, good and bad, and why.
December 17, 2019
If the revels of Star Wars are indeed now ended, Jedi couldn't have been a better resolution for them.
December 16, 2019
While Star Wars: Episode 6 - Return of the Jedi isn't as great as its immediate predecessors, the film ends the trilogy on a bang.
August 30, 2019
Exciting, intense and, once finished, leaves us wanting much more. [Full Review in Spanish]
April 18, 2019
Return of the Jedi is a very satisfying end to the original trilogy.
January 26, 2019
Definitely more good than bad, the opening and the big Luke-Vader-Emperor showdown are great, it just has some weaker elements that drag the overall experience down.
December 17, 2018
Return of the Jedi is a fitting, if not quite spectacular, end to a classic trilogy
April 26, 2018
"Return of the Jedi," the final act of George Lucas' first "Star Wars" trilogy, is the best one yet.
December 6, 2017
It's not a total disappointment, but compared to its two predecessors, it's definitely a minor film. [Full review in Spanish]
June 5, 2016
It's largely captivating at gigantic SFX and VFX spectacle; it's good at family movie and it's trivial at adult movie.
December 19, 2015
'Jedi' takes a little longer to get going, but once it does, the Star Wars finale ends on a satisfying and rewarding note for fans who watch it for the first of 50th time.
December 17, 2015
...a capper to a solid trilogy that's nevertheless not quite the flawless work its reputation would seem to indicate.
December 15, 2015
There are all sorts of hints in the latest escapade (notionally directed by Richard Marquand) that we are meant to be taking it seriously.
December 15, 2015
It's everything it ought to be -- glorious, exhilarating, exciting, absorbing, technically wondrous. But there also is something bittersweet in the knowledge that, with Jedi, we are bidding a fond farewell to all of the characters we got to know so well.
December 14, 2015
The characters and dialogue get lost somewhere between the bug-eyed monsters and the exploding spaceships, but it is all so much fun it probably really does not matter a whole lot.
December 14, 2015
The film has special effects so incredible that it will become the standard by which future efforts are measured, and it leaves the audience cheering and happy.
December 14, 2015
With this last of the central Star Wars cycle, there is the sense of the closing of a circle, of leaving behind real friends. It is accomplished with a weight and a new maturity that seem entirely fitting, yet the movie has lost none of its sense of fun.
November 16, 2015
Lucas has once again recycled the B movies of his youth: jungle movies, gangster movies, pirate movies, you name it. He culls bits from them that still have oomph and mounts them with a Sesame-Street zap.
November 5, 2015
Highly entertaining.
