The third and final chapter in the wondrous STAR WARS saga is RETURN OF THE JEDI. Luke (Mark Hamill) must save Han Solo (Harrison Ford) from the clutches of the monstrous Jabba the Hut, and bring down the newly reconstructed--and even more powerful--Death Star. With Solo imprisoned, Luke accompanies his faithful droids R2D2 (Kenny Baker) and C3PO (Anthony Daniels) in a rescue bid, with Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) also lending a hand. After they valiantly disentangle their friends from Jabba's clutches, Luke returns to his Jedi Knight training with Yoda. Meanwhile, the Rebel Troops amass in an attempt to see off the impending threat from Darth Vader (played by David Prowse, voiced by James Earl Jones) and his new Death Star, with the operation being lead by Han Solo. But Luke must face Vader himself if he is to become a true Jedi Knight, and as he enters into a spirited battle with his light saber-wielding enemy, some surprising revelations await the young warrior.

Uneven and dul in a few spots maybe, The third Star Wars movie is still a step above many of it's peers.

Han and Luke captured by Jabba's thugs
Want some cheese to go with that whine?      It's really hard to guage Star Wars fans sometimes.  Some fans are diehards and will love ANYTHING that comes out the pipe like Attack of the Clones or the Special Editions.  Some are so tempermental that they get a bug up their behind about ANYTHING even from Empire Strikes Back.  One thing is certain though and thats universally Return of the Jedi is seen as the bottom of the original three films.  Even seeing …

Pros: Includes every aspect about Star Wars we love     Cons: Sometimes looks like George Lucas was too ambitious for its own good     The Bottom Line: One more Star Wars movie to review...     There’s a reason Return of the Jedi was snubbed for any Oscar nominations back in 1983: From a purely technical standpoint, this is one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. The performances just aren’t as good as they were previously, …
