The second film in the trilogy practically tops the first one. It's very rare that a sequel is just as good as the original. This one proves different. The story picks up after the huge battle with the Death Star. The rebels are now on the icy planet of Hoth. The imperial forces, lead by Darth Vader, attack them and force them to flee. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) goes off in search of the mystical Yoda (voiced and performed by muppeteer, Frank Oz), while Han and Leia (Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher) are being pursued by the Empire.

Though relatively more dark and bleak than the first film, this certainly generates the excitement of Star Wars. Plus, the story has better special effects, new characters (like Lando Calrissian, played by Billy Dee Williams) and great plot twists, including a surprising revelation from Darth Vader to Luke Skywalker. The ending might make people who have never seen it before feel bad, but all they have to do now is rent or buy all three films and watch them in one day.

My Rating = Four Stars
