Considered the most morally and emotionally complex of the original Star Wars trilogy, this title was voted in the top 10 classic films of all time..>
The Rebel Forces, which include young adventurer Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), crazy pilot Han Solo (Harrison Ford), and the beautiful but seemingly humourless Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher)--have been successful in destroying the Empire's Death Star. However, the Empire's top commander, the terrifying Lord Darth Vader (played by David Prowse, voiced by James Earl Jones), is scanning the galaxy for the Rebels' secret location. This really is one of the best of the Star Wars films. After a visually stunning showdown on the ice planet Hoth, the Rebels are forced to flee, and Luke separates from Han and Leia. Some of the best storytelling ever weaves multiple, archetypal plotlines that pit Vader against Han and Leia as he desperately attempts to capture Luke for political and personal reasons. Luke, meanwhile, finds himself under the tutorship of the tiny but powerful old Jedi Master Yoda, who teaches him the ways of the Force and warns the impatient but talented student against the threat of the Dark Side. Greek tragedy meets a philosophical hero's journey in THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, a remarkable sci-fi epic in which the performances are as powerful as the spectacular special effects.
