The screenplay in “Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back” is without a doubt, the best screenplay out of the whole series. I think it’s very strong and beautifully written. The visual effects and the production design are astounding. But the main reason to why I was so impressed with this film we’re the first two acts. The first two acts were just absolutely perfect. In the first act, we see our characters in a snow planet called Hoth, and then we get into some big battle sequences of where the imperial troopers invaded their base. That was impressive. In the second act, it gets even more impressive when the film flips back and forth between Luke Skywalker being trained by Yoda and Han, Leia, Chewbacca, and C-3P0 fighting the empire. As for the third act, well, let’s just say it was really good. I really did like the third act because it was well-executed, and it had a really great surprise at the end. I also really like the lightsaber battle between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. But I was actually more impressed with the first two acts than the third act of the film. Long regarded as the best film in the Star Wars franchise prior to the release of The Force Awakens, The Empire Strikes Back is a more refined cinematic achievement than its predecessor. This film cements the start of what becomes arguably the greatest cinematic and merchandising franchise of all time making George Lucas the richest man in cinematic history. After recently re-watching this film, the reaction from my children and I are that it was a step up from the original but still one hell of a cheesy movie. The special effects at the time must be held in the highest regard for trailblazing the “space opera”. Despite its shortcomings, the film is held closely within the hearts of most children of the 60s and 70s.
