In the second film, George Lucas is inferior to the directorÂs chair to the not very popular Irwin Kerschner, the budget of the film is increasing, the box office is noticeably falling, but the quality of the picture is two heads higher than the phenomenal ÂNew Hope.
I believe that this Episode has cemented the foundation for the future success of the franchise. Compared to the first film, “Empire” is more eventful. The soundtrack is just as memorable and beautiful. The number of locations and worlds has increased significantly, battles in space have become more interesting, ships maneuver much more beautifully, this is especially true of Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon. Also, the dynamics of movements increased and even the modern viewer does not have to get bored. Thanks to these qualities, the picture can adequately compete with the best fantastic films of recent years.
It is worth noting the acting game of the main characters, which is significantly different from their work in “Hope”. They are more confident, sometimes fervently and always professionally. From the theatrical, the game turned into an acting level. This is a huge step in such a short time. It causes respect, and in some places admiration.
In addition to amazing, as at that time, special effects, the film also has a huge semantic load, which, I think, is not worth retelling. After all, everyone perfectly feels it with his heart, everyone loves moral and spiritual values, perfectly highlighted in the whole trilogy, and in particular in this film.
An unequivocal masterpiece, which is impossible not to get carried away. Watching it, you unquestioningly believe everyone, even the iron C-3PiO, the barrel of R2-D2 and the toy Yoda … Especially the toy Yoda!
