Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi Review

“Return Of The Classic Film Ever Made”

February 14th, 2013

Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi is a 1983 epic science-fiction film directed by George Lucas. It is last installment of the Star Wars series. Bringing back the actors in first two, George Lucas managed to get Ian McDiarmid to play the powerful emperor called Palpantine, and Larry Ward to voice the overgrown slug-like gangsta, Jabba the Hutt.

To rescue Han Solo who was frozen in carbonate in the second film, Luke plans a rescue with his allies he met in the first two films. The two droids, R2-D2 and C-3PO go to Jabba's Palace in Tatooine to "serve" as his minions. Leia disguises as bounty hunter and unfreezes Han, but soon gets captured by Jabba's guards and stripped to a slave uniform. Luke arrives and is quickly captured but is soon sent down a bit to battle Jabba's deformed pet, the Rancor. Luke, however, kills the Rancor by pressing a lever which closes a metal gate to crush the monster's neck.

Angered over Luke's triumph, he sends Luke and Han to be killed by the Venus Flytrap-like monster called the Sarlacc. However, Luke quickly gains his lightsaber from R2 and fights the minions, while Han knocks Boba Fett into the mouth of the Sarlacc and Leia strangles Jabba to death with her own chains. After destroying his ship, Luke goes to see Yoda to complete his training but to see the old master die slowly. After he mentions that "there is another Skywalker", Luke goes to confront Darth Vader a second time...

To be honest, I cried at the sad scene where Yoda dies slowly. But, I laughed at the battle scene between Luke and Jabba's minion, thinking that Leia is a bit of a bad-ass while strangling Jabba to death. I liked where R2-D2 accidentally pushed C-3PO , and falling off to join him while giving off a little whistle. This film, along with the other two, will remain as the well-known series about a young man and his allies destined to fight the evil forces of a dictatorship.
