  • Star Wars: The Best One

    By Lebron Kenney
    Out of all the Star Wars films this is the best one. This is currently my 5th favorite movie of all time. Everything is just amazing the writing the acting and the special effects for the time (not including the special editions. The Empire Rules.
  • One star for the garbage CGI re-release abomination

    By theoddguy
    It is imperative that Disney release the original theatrical versions of these films. Original fans want the original versions.
  • My Favorite!

    By Emerson Sterner
    As I said about Star Wars (I still refuse to call it 'A New Hope') I was introduced to the 'Star Wars' franchise fairly late in life compared to everyone else who had grown up with it but when I finally binged the saga in two days this was one that set my standards for sequels very high. I hate to sound like the cliched guy that says that Empire is his favorite, but I'm sorry...Empire is my favorite Star Wars movie to date. This movie proved that the theme can be dark and sobering and yet really have a lot of fun. I really wish that "Luke, I am your father..." hadn't been iconic in pop culture but it was still a great plot reveal (the best in the series) and it's because of this movie that my standards for Star Wars sequels is now very high! Yet again, as with Star Wars, I can't find anything to really complain about and this movie for sure gets another 10 out of 10!
  • Nothing special happens

    By Omnithomas
    The story was written to sell toys. Plain and simple, Empire Strikes Back dazzled viewers upon its release but special effects don’t age well and all that’s left is a hollow experience.
  • Great but not AWESOME.

    This was good but some of the others were better.
  • Only watchable Star Wars movie on iTunes

    By AaronKrocks
    ITunes Didn't release the original versions of the Star Wars trilogy ,but instead released the special editions. It's awful but ESB is the least changed in the Star Wars special edition which makes it more watchable. I'd recommend buying this on iTunes but for me I'd stick to the original versions.
