A Little Boring In Some Scenes, But This Movie Is Still Really Good.
STORY: The story is simple and unforgettable: Luke Skywalker learns how to become a Jedi from Master Yoda, the Millenium Falcon is on the run from the pursuing Empire, and Darth Vader (I can tell everyone knows this.) exposes the truth to Luke (Which I heard shocked the audience when this was in theaters back in 1980!) during the fight at the end! A nice continuing story, this was!
ACTING: Everyone was perfect playing back their same roles from Episode IV, but Billy Dee Williams is new in this movie, and I thought he did really good playing Han Solo's old buddy. James Earl Jones playing Darth Vader's voice was so cool especially with his cool breathing noise, of course! That's all I have to say about the acting.
DIRECTING: George Lucas, which got me by surprise, is not directing this movie. Instead, it's some guy named Irvin Kershner. This unknown guy, who replaced George Lucas, did quite a good job directing this chapter.
VISUALS: The visuals were better in this one than they were in Episode IV since this movie was from 1980. The lightsabers still look cool, the planets and spaceships look graphic as well. The fighting between the Rebels and the Empire on the snowy planet Hoth was really enjoyable and I liked that scene a lot. The disgusting swamp-like planet Dagobah definitely looks like a place where no one wants to be, I can tell! The visuals on the holograms were colorful, and Yoda was not CG in this one since this movie is old, of course. It's still a pretty good job on the visuals though!
OVERALL: A really good "Star Wars" episode that, as I said before, is everyone's favorite chapter of the WHOLE "Star Wars" saga. But the only reason why I gave this movie 4.5 stars was because it was a little boring in some scenes like: Yoda's Jedi training on Luke could have been sped up a little, and the Millenium Falcon trying to hide from the Empire went too far, but the lightsaber duel between Luke and Darth Vader at the end was entertaining. Other than that, this movie is definitely worth watching a lot and I recommend this to you all. See this now!
