Atom User Reviews for Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary
I never had the chance to see it in the theater originally but, today was amazing!
Nice to see Empire Strikes Back for it's 40th anniversary and to go to the theater again even though things have changed.
Gr8 restoration from the original 70mm FILM (the 20th century Fox vault). Un-edited, nothing missing, original color and sound - even though it is in Digital format it still has the real movie experience.
Added scenes but not the CGI one most noticeable the woompa extra scene
Best Star Wars movie!
The best of three Star Wars films, and the most thought-provoking. After the space opera cheerfulness of the original film, this one plunges into darkness and even despair, and surrenders more completely to the underlying mystery of the story. It is because of the emotions stirred in Empire that the entire series takes on a mythic quality that resonates back to the first and ahead to the third. This is the heart.
It balances bloodshed with charm, spectacle with childlike glee. It's a near flawless movie of its kind.
