In the final episode of the Star Wars saga, Han Solo (Harrison Ford) emerges intact from the carbonite casing in which he'd been sealed in The Empire Strikes Back. The bad news is that Solo, together with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), is prisoner to the grotesque Jabba the Hutt. But with the help of the charismatic Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams), our heroes and our heroine manage to escape. The next task is to rid the galaxy of Darth Vader (body by David Prowse, voice by James Earl Jones) and the Emperor (Ian McDiarmid), now in command of a new,… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It is not as exciting as Star Wars itself, which had the advantage of novelty. But it is better and more satisfying than The Empire Strikes Back..."
‑ , TIME Magazine
"In scope and ambition, Jediresembles nothing so much as the next level of a computer game, with a new environment, new gadgets and new creatures."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"...when Luke and Darth Vader face off before the drooling Emperor, the franchise comes to its rightful fruition."
‑ Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm
"The Force was always with it, and time, though not entirely kind, still affirms that most important truth."
‑ Rob Vaux,
"A fragilidade de Marquand como diretor e a crescente infantilização da narrativa são facilmente constatáveis, mas ainda assim o filme consegue fechar satisfatoriamente a trilogia original."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Reasonably fast paced for its 133-minute length, a visual treat throughout."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Though it looks almost too polished, a handful of eye-smacking action scenes were breakthroughs in precomputer cinematic graphics. And when the film moves, it does so with blazing energy and awesome noise."
‑ Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle
"The appeal, perhaps, will be strongest to the young."
‑ Patrick Gibbs, Daily Telegraph
"This installment is deemed by some fans to be the best of the first Star Wars trilogy in technical accomplishment and narrative involvment, but other critics disagree."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Return is such a dud that no amount of [Special Edition] reworking could have saved it."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"With its feints at horror and pathos, the third Star Wars film is the most Disney-esque in its emotional outline, yet that outline is buried beneath an obnoxiously hyped-up pace that reduces the emotions to rubble."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"For all its faults and goofy plot holes, "Return of the Jedi" is a solid finisher."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Ewok-filled finale less Force-ful than previous."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"The finale to the saga's first chapter wobbles from time to time and the mythology grows a little woolly, but that spectacular conclusion is hard to resist."
‑ , Film4
