Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: In many ways the new film is a better film than Star Wars, visually more exciting, more artful and meticulous in detail.
Fresh: The Empire Strikes Back is a worthy sequel to Star Wars, equal in both technical mastery and characterization, suffering only from the familiarity with the effects generated in the original and imitated too much by others.
Fresh: Another richly imaginative, engrossing and spectacular motion picture from the redoubtable George Lucas.
Fresh: The Empire may not top Star Wars, but it certainly makes one look forward to whatever new surprises George Lucas and his band of cinematic wizards can conjure up for us.
Luke, i’m your father!
The best of the series!
PLEASE BE THE ORIGINAL CUT!
I've been hoping that Disney would release a remastered HD version of the original 3 movies...let this be the answer to my prayers!!
Simply the greatest movie, and thank you disney for finally putting them in iTunes. Also I hope there is a bundle where you can get all of them at a lower price.
