Empire is commonly regarded as the best star wars film in the entire series. I disagree merely because i have more of a fondness towards the sixth episode. The movie opens with an incredible siege scene on the iconic snow planet of Hoth. The best parts of this film are the amazing visual settings. The crisp sterile look of the snow covered Hoth, the grimy dirty yet serene look of Dagobah, and the surreal floating city on Bespin. This movie was a sequel that met and surpassed the expectations that the first movie set for it. It is just as much of a classic as the first star wars. @ecozones of the Teen Review Board of the Hamilton Public Library

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.

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!
