ReelViews for 'Science Fiction/Adventure' movies
As one of 2016’s most anticipated films, it doesn’t let down the legions who have been waiting for it.
This was the movie that reshaped the industry (for better or worse); it’s possible to argue that no more important film was released during the second half of the 20th century.
A case can be made that "Return of the Jedi" is the worst installment of the entire Lucas-helmed "Star Wars" series.
"The Empire Strikes Back" is a true classic. It has scope and grandeur. It has heroics and tragedy. It can make us laugh and cry. It can make us get up and cheer. It can shock us to the very core of our beings.
A solid space opera spectacle with enough nostalgia to overpower even the most hard-hearted child of the ‘70s and ‘80s but it relies a little too much on recycling old plot elements.
Standout, signature scenes make for moments of great viewing power but can’t hide the flaws of an untidy, overlong story.
