REVIEWS:









"The Empire Strikes Back is the best of three Star Wars films, and the most thought-provoking. .... It is a visual extravaganza from beginning to end, one of the most visionary and inventive of all films. .... Yoda is a creature made by Frank Oz in a Muppet shop. But Oz and [George] Lucas were not content to make Yoda realistic. They wanted to make him a good actor, too. And they did; in his range of wisdom and emotion, Yoda may actually give the best performance in the movie. .... In the glory days of science fiction, critics wrote about the 'sense of wonder.' That's what 'The Empire Strikes Back' creates in us. .... We are on a quest, on a journey, on a mythological expedition. The story elements in the 'Star Wars' trilogy are as deep and universal as storytelling itself. Watching these movies, we're in a receptive state like that of a child--
our eyes and ears are open, we're paying attention, and we are amazed."


-- Roger Ebert; February 21, 1997
