Everybody loves this one, but I think it's cool and an okay sequel.

A classic Star Wars movie. I mean, it has one of the most famous lines in sci-fi history. Lando, Yoda, Han Solo, Luke, Leia, and for the real fans-Admiral Piett!

Of all of the Star Wars movies I've seen thus far (parts 1 through 4, 7, and "Rogue One" (part 3.5), this one is the best: the action scenes aren't utterly ludicrous or overdone, subplots are engaging without being distracting, the acting isn't noticeably bad, and there is more real drama to it (eg., character development).

Probably the best sequal ever made.

There's not much more to say that hasn't been said before with Empire Strikes Back. It's just the perfect put together sci-fi flick of possibly all time! Star Wars fan or not, this movie has all elements and you don't have to be a sci-fil nerd to love this movie. It's been regarded as the best movie of all of the Star Wars movies bar none combined. Enough of reading and talking, go watch it and find out for yourself what you wished you'd known before and may the force be with you!

I'm sick-to-death of Star Wars.

Better than the first four by a lot. Not a bad movie, Yoda is funny in this one.

SPECIAL EDITION again! Why? The hologram of the EMPEROR FINALLY looks CORRECT! Boba Fett sounds like Jango Fett, Cloud City looks AMAZING, and you get to see ALL of the WAMPA!

The characters return amid difficult circumstances that remain unresolved. Spoiler alert: we discover that Darth Vader is Luke's father! It's strange to watch a trilogy before watching the trilogy that preceded it, but that's how the saying goes, "I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then." Well, if we had known then it wouldn't be as shocking.

People have often said that this movie is the best of the STAR WARS films. I must say that this movie is excellent and has incredible visuals and audio that will make "sound freaks" scream HOMETHEATER!!!!! The force was with me when i purchased this movie. I say this because i love bass and there is one scene that made my walls, floors, and air conditioning unit rattle. This incredible bass heavy scene takes place when Princess Leia gives orders to have the HUGE storm doors closed after losing contact with Skywalker and Solo. The sound those very Large doors make after they close ROCKED MY WHOLE APARTMENT!!!!! I remember saying "Holy S @*&!!! Even the Empirial Walkers make their mark for sound during their attack. But this whole movie is filled with amazing sounds that will make "sound freaks" stand up and applause. And let's not forget the incredible scene where "The Falcon" is being chased while manuvering through an asteroid field. I'm giving this movie 5 stars!!!!!!!! Great story, Great visuals, Great audio, and THX!!! Franks sliced into the shape of pennies, large bowl of Campbell's vegetarian beans, sugar, three slices of whole wheat bread and pineapple juice. Honey glazed doughnuts on the side.

Luke: I won't fail you. I'm not afraid.

Yoda: You will be. You... will... be.

Han (to Leia when she protests him leaving the rebel base): Come on! You want me to stay because of the way you feel about me! Leia: Yes! Your a great fighter! You're a natural leader! Han: No. That's not it. Come on. (gestures to his lips) Ahh! (seeing Leia looking flustered) Come on! Leia: You're imagining things! Han (sarcastically): Am I? Then why are you following me? Did I leave without giving you a goodbye kiss? Leia: I'd just as soon kiss a wookie! Han: I can arrange that! You could use a good kiss!
