I love The Empire Strikes Back (the original version)! It is my favorite Star Wars movie. It introduced my favorite Star Wars character, Boba Fett.
After the Battle of Hoth, Luke Skywalker has decided to go to the Dagobah system to find Yoda, a Jedi Master. Elsewhere, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, and C-3PO are trying to escape the Empire, who wants to use them to lure Luke into a trap set by the evil Lord Darth Vader, leading up to a revealing secret in the Skywalker legacy.
I really recommend this movie to all; Star wars fan or not.
The Empire Strikes Back is, and has always been, in my opinion the best Star Wars film ever made. I love the writing, the characters, the darker feel, the story line, the emotional impact of this film. It is simply incredible.
And this version on DVD is the greatest. Here, you have the film unaltered. The original, beautiful film.
I do not fault George Lucas for making changes to the original Star Wars films. I loved the chance to see them on the big screen in 1997. He is the creator of the Star Wars universe. He loves the story, the characters; he loves Star Wars. And if he wants to go back to these films he truly cares about and make changes, I say more power to him. To continue to work with something that makes you happy is a cool thing.
The trilogy I grew up with is the trilogy I fell in love with. And so, for me, the unaltered trilogy is the only way to go. It is something very special. I had owned the films on VHS. As I mentioned earlier, I don't fault Lucas for making changes in his films, but I was not personally interested in owning the special edition films. I accepted the fact that I would only ever have the original Star Wars on video tape, fullframe. But then I heard the news that the Trilogy finally would be released unaltered, and my heart sang for joy. One of the best additions to my movie collection has been The Empire Strikes Back - the limited edition DVD.
This is the best in the Saga! Following the story of 'A New Hope' The Rebellion are hiding from the Empire in the ice planet Hoth. The Empire has found out where the Rebellion is and throws a full fledged attack against the Republic to get Luke Skywalker. But the Rebellion get away in time, and Luke goes his seperate direction to go to the last surviving Jedi Master Yoda, whom he heard of by Obi-Wan Kenobi. It is a TERRIFIC movie and is very much worth seeing.
One of the better chapters of the Star Wars saga.
The Empire Strikes Back is commonly thought of as the best film in the series. For the sheer scope of the film it beats the other films that follow by a long way. It builds wonderfully on the original film but falls a bit short in youthful wonderment. This is a great film and kids will love it, but for a regular 10 year old nothing beats the the first film.
I think of the original trilogy movies this one shows the true dynamic of the galaxy under imperial rule. It shows what is done by the real "good guys" and why they need to do something about their situation. But the best part about 'Empire' is the further character development of Han solo. This film proves how cool he was. When my wife tells me "I love you" and I say "I know", I get something thrown at me. Han got away with it, thats cool.
