Flawed, very entertaining solid third sequel an epic conclusion to the original trilogy!

Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1983) is a third sequel in the original Star Wars trilogy it is flawed, yet very entertaining solid third sequel and an epic conclusion to the original Star Wars trilogy. Honestly in my opinion Return of the Jedi is far way better film than The Force Awakens, that movie was a disaster and it sucked, I rather watch this movie any time. It is not my favorite film in the series and I don't love this movie that much like I love the first two movies, but I like it and it think it is very good at some points. The film has a lot of problems, that hurts the movie. I still have enjoyed this movie and I had a lot of fun. Return of the Jedi (1983) is directed this time from Richard Marquand a different director than it was directed from Irvin Kershner and George Lucas. This movie was released on the same year that I was born in 1983. The film is pretty good on it is own way, but on the other thing it suffers from problems and flaws.

Things I like in this movie: The first hour is set back on planet Tatooine which is a rescue mission which I like, the story is set where the first movie begins and ends here.

Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian, Princess Leia Organa, C-3PO, and R2-D2 return to Tatooine to rescue Han Solo (who was encased in carbonite at the end of Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back) from the gangster Jabba the Hutt (voice: Larry Ward).

A battle on ship, with Luke steadily taking the fight to Jabba's men. During the battle, Leia strangles Jabba to death with the chain around her neck and with R2-D2's help escapes from her bonds. The heroes destroy the ship, kills the bad guys and save Han solo. I love the explosion, the rescue and than they are all save.

I love that we find out from ghost of Obi-Wan "Ben" Kenobi (Alec Guinness) that Leia (Carrie Fisher) is the sister of Luke ( Mark Hamill). I love that Luke revels to Leia that she is his sister.

I like the battle on the Endor, Leia, Han, Chewbacca, C-3PO, R2-D2 and Ewoks are battling Stormtroopers to destroying the shield generator for the second Death Star and they do the destroy it. Lando and his assault team destroys the deaths tar on the end.

Luke face Darth Vader and the evil Emperor and fights both of them, while they where both trying to bring him on a dark side of the force to join them.

I love when Vader toys with the notion of turning Leia to the dark side, Luke gives in to his rage and furiously gains the upper hand in the battle, slicing off Vader's right robotic hand in a rage in one swift cut, and makes his father succumb to defeat at the mercy of his son's blade.

Realizing that Luke cannot be turned, the Emperor uses Force lightning against him to torture and attempt to kill him. Deeply affected by the sight of his son dying before him, Vader repents and turns on the Emperor, throwing him down a reactor shaft to his death.

Luke try's to save Anakin but he dies before he could save him.

I feel that Luke's transition from a teenager to calm and collected warrior of the Force feels very authentic. His conflict between Darth Vader and the Emperor contains some of the best scenes in the entire saga.

Things I don't like: The film has a few problems that are really unnecessary and I really hate it:

This movie's biggest flaw is the pacing, the Ewoks and their role in the film. Star Wars been in a forest, aren't Star Wars suppose to set in the Galaxy and not in the forest? Personally I don't mind the Ewoks, but their introduction causes the movie comes to a screeching halt. Another fault of this movie is its attempts at humor. It feels often unnatural and forced a lot of the time. The Phantom Menace has been notorious for having this problem as well, but they most likely originated here.

Master Yoda dies in this film! Why? Watching Yoda in the prequels I have really enjoyed him much more than I have watching him in the last two movies. Little guy grove up in to my heart. So I disagree about him dying.

I am giving this movie an 8, I watch A New Hope and Retun of the Jedi on TV as a kid I don't remember watching The Empire Strikes Back, but I have saw those tow movies and still I like Return of the Jedi a lot.

From Conclusions and A Redemption

Movie Review: "Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi" (1983)

Six years after the initial release of "Star Wars" on May 25th 1977 to just 43 locations on the U.S. domestic market, before conquering the world of cinema, comes the concluding "Episode VI - Return Of The Jedi" with a wide release of 1,002 locations to an highly anticipating audience on exact the same day in the year of 1983.

Executive Producer George Lucas, at age 38, organized to hold all the strings in building his originally-written "Space Saga" to full extensions by engaging Thriller-approved director Richard Marquand (1937-1987) to handle this science-fiction action movie, which brings the story between a over-years-of-disappearing father and his grown-up son to conclusion in the Emperor's Throne Room to the second light saber duel between Darth Vader, exposed as Anakin Skywalker in "Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back" (1980), and his son Luke Sykwalker, performed by all-in-black and calmly-directed actor Mark Hamill, at age 31, who delivers together with actor Harrison Ford as always-leisure Han Solo and actress Carrie Fisher in high-distress-fighting mode as Princess Leia in a legendary but at times too plainly-received opening sequence on the Planet Tatooine versus Jabba The Hutt; a notorious gangster boss in his palace of an even more infamous desert location of full circle beginnings concerning the character of Anakin, at age 9, getting discovered by the character of Jedi-Master Qui-Gon Jinn in "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace" (1999).

The tripled production budget of appoximately 32.5 Million U.S. Dollars against 11 Million U.S. Dollar for the first "Star Wars" movie, shot in season 1976/1977, pays off with "Episode VI - Return Of The Jedi" in terms of sophisticated special effects work by Lucasfilm-inhabited affiliate entity Industrial, Light and Magic (ILM) producing from stop-motion monster attacks over motion-control space battles to chamber tension character light saber confrontations, which get the highest emotional pitches under another original score by John Williams and pin-pointed sound design supervised by Ben Burtt.

The screen-story written by George Lucas and then mutually-conceived into a shooting script with screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan loses most of its undeniable tense moments of dark forces versus the hope and fighting spirit of the innocent on the Moon Endor Sequence, when minutes as to say entire scenes get lost by on overly cute-appearing species of aliens, called the "Ewoks". What should have the hard-boiled redemption story of "Vader & Skywalker" becomes washed out soft by an endless, inevitable cross-cuts of three storylines with the blacks of an interior Death Star location, greens of Endor's forest landscape and dark blues of cold-metal space-ships to fire-breathing explosions in space.

Nevertheless an action-packed 130 Minutes editorial, which has run through several hands before final release, creates enough punch to convince the majority of moviegoers, who preferably have knowledge of "Episode IV" (1977) and "Episode V" (1980); If I take those precessor movies away, "Return of the Jedi" appears to be under trouble most of the time in close to every department besides the joy-spreading cast in static as to say standard visual coverage by cinematographer Alan Hume (1924-2010), also know for capturing "007" movies with Roger Moore (1927-2017) between 1981 and 1985, which in retrospective could have been more innovative under a different direction due to mostly unused major league production design by Norman Reynolds in the most disappointed scene between Luke Skywalker, when the leading character turns himself in, to Darth Vader on the Moon Endor, which hardly keeps the expected thrills at store from the once-in-a-lifetime confrontation between father & son in superior-suspense as action-sharing just-cause to be the better movie "Star Wars: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back" (1980) directed by Irvin Kershner (1923-2010).
