Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back was released in 1980, three years after its overwhelmingly successful predecessor.To say The Empire Strikes Back does justice to A New Hope is a massive understatement as this film ups the ante in every way possible. Longer and better battles (such as the immaculate Battle of Hoth), a much darker and more mature plot with one of the most memorable (and quoted) twists of all time, AT-AT walkers, the introduction of Yoda are some of the reasons why Empire Strikes Back is the perfect sequel.Unlike A New Hope, this film was not directed by George Lucas but Irvin Kershner and to give credit where credit is due he did just as good of a job. Kershner also manages to get the best possible performances out of his cast, especially Hamill whose character changed drastically since the last film. We also see more of Vader and his deranged and almost animalistic character which is again perfectly displayed by James Earl Jones's vocals.Empire Strikes Back truly is the perfect sequel as it flourishes on George Lucas's elements as well as bringing in many more of its own in great succession.Final Grade - 9+/10
