Han and Leia try to destroy the new death star while Luke confronts his father and tryes to find the good in him. This movie started great and ended great. The father and son thing worked brilliant and when you think about it is pretty sad at the end with the final father and son eye to eye.

Good action, effects and music, the characters were evolving and just we need to wait the last episode in 2 years.

In my opinion, this is the best of the trilogy. The plot deals with the dark transformation of Darth Vader and almost transformation of Luke Skywalker and the film, as a whole, is just grittier and more somber. Add to that the introduction of two iconic characters in Boba Fett and Jabba the Hutt, and it's a fitting conclusion to an inventive and adventurous trilogy.

"Return Of The Jedi" by Yojimbo

What were the rebel alliance thinking? To any military strategist with half a brain, the obvious way to defeat the Empire's finest shock stormtroopers is to deploy a tribe of furry midgets armed with sticks...it's so simple when you think about it! Well we all know what went wrong with this one, and it's probably where the rot started to set in. The most annoying thing is that the original concept was to have a tribe of tree dwelling Wookiees cracking stormtrooper skulls...how cool would that have been?! Despite the obvious drawback of those fuzzy annoyances, it's still proper Star Wars, with the characters we love in their last ditch battle against the Empire. The attack on the Death Star is beautifully choreographed and thrilling, and Luke's final showdown with Vader was everything we h...

The Pathos of Star Wars

The final chapter in George Lucas' grand space opera succeeds at eliciting pathos for the tragic figure of Darth Vader while still providing the audience with a thoroughly flagitious villain in the form of Emperor Palpatine (played with hammy relish by Ian McDiarmid). It also gives us a very assured performance from lead Mark Hamill and a truly spectacular and cathartic climax. A post-production edit that replaces the ghostly image of Sebastion Shaw with that of Hayden Christenson, however, has proven almost as pernicious an alteration as the 'Greedo Scene' from 'A New Hope'; but, unlike that former atrocity of political correctness, this change actually improves the film by giving the viewer a sense of continuity between the two trilogies (not to mention giving Christenson the opportunit...

A Great Ending, Ewoks and All

I consider this the weakest link of the original trilogy, but even the least of the three is still one of the best sci-fi films and a great way to wrap the series.

I will say that Jedi starts off with the best opening: Jabba the Hutt, a whole slew of aliens, slave Leia,Luke vs. Rancor, Sarlacc, Boba Fett - it's one visual treat after another and it keeps things interesting. It dials down the action for a little while, getting into the meat of the story, but it picks up again.

Though Empire may have the biggest twist, Jedi has the bigger emotions. Yoda dies, Luke confirms that Leia is his sister and becomes a full-fledged Jedi, Han and Leia work things out, Anakin is redeemed, the Emperor dies - and everyone celebrates! If nothing else, it ends pretty much as perfectly as it can: wit...
