Joss Whedon: Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back ending was terrible


Avengers Assemble director Joss Whedon has criticised Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, saying its inconclusive ending was ‘appalling’.

Whedon was not impressed with the movie, often revered by Star Wars fans even when it was first released more than three decades ago, saying it failed to deliver a ‘whole experience’.

‘Empire committed the cardinal sin of not actually ending, which at the time I was appalled by and I still think it was a terrible idea,’ he told Entertainment Weekly.

‘It’s not an ending. It’s a Come Back Next Week, or in three years. And that upsets me. I go to movies expecting to have a whole experience. If I want a movie that doesn’t end I’ll go to a French movie.

‘That’s a betrayal of trust to me. A movie has to be complete within itself, it can’t just build off the first one or play variations.’
