filmcapsule's rating of the film Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

Expands the universe by adding more of the iconography and narrative ideas that make the series unique while also bringing a host of successful cinematic ideas to the table. Though I prefer the purity of the first film, the second film is allowed to more confident cinematically thanks to a stabler production, and a better, more skilled crew.
