This movie holds up extremely well since it's release in 1980. The effects look great, and they are matched by a story that is exciting and engaging. The acting by Harrison Ford, Carrie Fischer, and Mark Hamill is top-notch. They bring their characters to life in very convincing fashion. The imaginative nature of this film evokes senses of awe and wonder in it's audience. "Empire" builds upon it's predecessor and adds much more to love into the franchise. The cinematography in this installment is very good. There are several scenes with great camera usage and lighting. The script is sharp and witty. There are some real emotional moments as well as some humorous ones. Additionally, this film does a great job storytelling. There are a couple of different story threads happening and they are each told intricately and thoroughly that we are able to understand everything we need to about each main player. Also, the sound editing and mixing is very good. There are a lot of different noises, but the way they work together make them work effectively. This is a must-see film and is an all-time great. Overall, I give this film a 10/10.
