Finally we hit the real jewel of the Star Wars saga - tellingly, one of the ones not directed or fully written by Lucas.

The bright, glossy and hyperdrive speed pace of the orginal gets dialled down a lot faster in this moody, dark and ominous sequel, as the rebellion gets pushed farther into a corner by the Empire that hunts it, and characters are betrayed and left.

Interestingly for most of the film the heroes from the first film are split up, as each starts to follow their own path. Luke towards his true destiny while Han and Leia move towards their feelings about each other.

All the while Vader pursues.....

Wonderfully written and with solid progression while still making the situation as black for everyone as possible we also have THAT REVELATION!! The biggest, yet simplest twist in the whole saga delivered to keep us hooked for the finale!

Definitely the best of all the Star Wars films.

Another of my favourites as a child this 2dvd Limited Edition containing both the 1980 and updated versions of the film, is also joinig my growing collection!
A brilliant sci-fi story with loads of effects and spaced out action will mean you watch this more than once. A bargain price of just £4.99 means value for your money so grab your copy and Use the Force!!
Nice one Play!

 THE SAGA TURNS DARKER !

This is by far the greatest of all the Star Wars movies. The Characters are alot better written, the acting better. And the darker tone of the film is very welcome. This time the Empire have a greater menace, and not just a bunch of bad guys in a flying ball. The film works on every level, and the ending leaves you craving more. But for me the iceing on the cake is the Added music score of the Emperial March, the sound of that music pounding out of my speakers is pure goosebump time ! This has to be composer John Williams greatest creation. If you have to buy one Star Wars movie, buy this. A masterclass in SCI-FI escapism !

Probably the most memorable film of the whole Star Wars saga and you can see the better directing from the off as Lucas takes a back seat. The acting is much better in this as the actors are more accustomed with their roles and once again the SFX is really good when you consider this was 1980. This was the darkest of all the Star Wars movies as Darth Vadar goes out of his way to ensnare Luke Skywalker to the dark side......if you havent seen this then it is a must. Enjoy
