After the Episode IV do-over of Force Awakens I'm glad we now finally get some more original content from Star Wars like this flick about Rebel forces led by a tough woman with important parentage and a rogueish love interest on a planet trying to shut down an Empire shield generator while a Mon Calamari-led Rebel fleet is engaged in a space battle while an operational Death Star is-HEY WAITAMINNIT

It's a Star Wars movie so an orphan goes on an epic adventure that involves their father working for the enemy who happens to be involved with a planet destroying weapon. They team up with a leather jacket wearing pilot with his oversized sidekick and have an emotional conclusion with their mentor. Eventually they dress up like the enemy to invade their base.

Perhaps more so than any other Star Wars movie, Rogue One gives you a real sense of the sprawling universe caught up in civil war, and despite the unceremonious handling of its many characters, it delivers a great looking, solid and fairly dark war tale.

You know, I really thought this was a great movie! While Rogue One may strictly be for Star Wars fans, there's no denying the film delivers a great story and plenty of Star Wars visual splendor and action to make the film really enjoyable. It's cast well and the characters are all very likable. What more could you ask for? The best Star Wars film outside of the original trilogy. If you haven't seen this and like Star Wars, get on it.

Slow start leads to strong finish. Like last years TFA this feels like a really well made fan-film. While TFA repeated storylines from the original trilogy Rogue One apes the aesthetics and overall designs. The CGI representation of the late Peter Cushing felt off and a bit creepy. Darth Vader was cool but unnecessary and there's too many cameos. I like the multi-cultural cast of characters who are all well acted and how the film successfully shows the scale of the huge structures seen onscreen.

Having neglected to download an email attachment, a girl is forced to go down to the building where she can get an actual copy on disc, only to find she has upload problems due to the size of the pdf. The outcome of online fans spending years mocking the prequel trilogy, endlessly bitching and moaning about them, seems to be to have to suffer several centuries of programmed blandness in the form of endless repetitions of the original. Congrats. Orchestral score is outdated and intrusive.

After being disappointed with TFA I approached this with mild expectations and was pleasantly surprised. The story is fresh, the cast diverse and interesting. It fits in perfectly with the original trilogy and though we know the ultimate outcome, the frantic final act still delivers some surprises and cinematic wonder.

Rogue One is a satisfying and promising start for the Star Wars anthology films. I admire how this film differentiates itself from the episodic saga and credit to Gareth Edwards for making a Star Wars film that looks and feels different to what we know but still has the perfect measure of fan pleasing touches. My minor criticisms are forgivable and overall I was thoroughly entertained. But the final third in particular is an unbelievable cinematic spectacle that ties into A New Hope wonderfully.

Much to its credit, Disney allows the filmmakers to use the first film outside the main Skywalker narrative as an opportunity to do something different, rather than play it safe by mimicking the tone & formula that came before. While this means the film doesn't have the same joyful giddiness during action scenes, it does offer up something more moving, surprising & arguably more powerful than any of the other films. There's also more than enough call backs for fans & the actors are fantastic.

I'm all for SW taking baby steps towards more risky and challenging content, but until they start unearthing some characters worth getting invested in those risks aren't going to pay off much. Still, its deviation in tone is appreciated.

With its humdrum script and less than amazing ensemble, 'Rogue One' doesn't conjure the magic of the original trilogy in the same way that Daisy Ridley and Co. managed to in 'The Force Awakens'. And thus, while Gareth Edwards' ultimately rather faceless spinoff is undeniably solid and arguably almost miraculously unerring, I doubt that I shall be inclined to rewatch it. Except maybe some of the action towards the end of the film.

Enjoyed this. Sets out its own stall to an extent, but pays enough lip service to fans of the rest of the films. Well handled, looks great and leads fairly effectively into Star Wars. There's a couple of CGI moments that just about avoid venturing into uncanny valley. It gets pretty dark by the end, but no so intense that it would put off young 'uns. I liked that droid, and Donnie Yen was tonnes of fun. By no means perfect, and maybe not entirely satisfying, but a worthy and enjoyable effort.

Wow, this dark, violent ride through the galaxy combines awesome action, great characters and a compelling story with just the right amount of references to the old saga to unleash the familiar Star Wars feeling. Although the outcome is well-known, Edwards manages to blast you away with the strongest Star Wars ending to date.

What this lacks in the operatic overtones of let's say.. Empire Strikes Back it makes up in true grit. It's not quite Sergio Leone or even dirty dozen in space but there's a level of grim realism in this Star wars film that is absent in all others. There's none of the characteristic Star Wars playfulness in this and the tone shift is readily apparent once the plot wheels turn. The visuals and even the CGI resurrected characters look great. Finally, a worthy piece as a proper prequel.

The film I hoped TFA would have been. RO is a fleshed out, mature film I highly appreciate after the somewhat kiddie episode 7, which left me feeling a bit mixed. RO reminded me of 'Empire', as it is quite dark and serious in tone. To be frank, this is how I like my cup of Star Wars. Edwards has created a great installment, along with the solid cast, strong script and marvelous CGI effects. Oh, that last scene with Vader, nerdgasm galore. I saw it in 3D, even though I hate it it was still great!

WOW! I have no doubt Edwards had to steer an entire army of Executives in order to deliver the SW film he wanted. Perhaps one day someone will make a documentary about that? I have no doubt it would make for quite a story - Whatever were his obstacles, he clearly overcame them. He has done himself and every SW fan proud. Pure class. This is a mature and gritty adventure who fianlly dares to leave out all the kiddie stuff in the likes of Episode 1-3 & TFA. Great Score by Giacchino

It's absolute tosh of course - were it not Star Wars there's no element of this that would make it to screen or deserve your attention, and even as a Star Wars story it's only the last act that justifies everything we've had to sit through till then. What you have here is an outstanding Star Wars battle sequence preceded by a good hour and a half of "set up". The set up is at least Star Wars flavoured so you may well enjoy your time sitting there, waiting for the last act, much more than I did.

Overall very good, but it is a bit too long/drags on in places. In many ways, considering this as a "period piece" in that it is set pretty much at the same time as episode IV, a lot more interesting than episode VII. It really nails the look and feel (though modernized of course) and the music is spot on (or "spot off"). The final act is honestly fantastic. CGI original cast was one thing that didn't really hit the mark - the technology just isn't ready to get out of uncanny valley.

It doesn't have the scale or excitement of a new Episode, for obvious reasons, but as it approached I kept saying I think it'll be a better MOVIE than The Force Awakens. Tyler was right! It's gritty but with enough comedy (mostly from K-2SO) to make it genuinely funny. I actually cared about these characters quite a bit. The ending scene was fantastic. My only issue is that Whitaker sometimes hams it up and he did here; luckily he wasn't around a lot. Smaller story but intimate and exciting.

Me going in: "I know what I want Star Wars to be (fast, fun, a hint of darkness) and this isn't going to be that." And while Edwards trades in the popcorny thrills of Ep. 7 for something more solemn and adult, about halfway through I found myself REALLY invested in this story and these characters despite their lack of definition (understandable given, well...you know). The finale, while yet ANOTHER variant on the "Jedi" formula, is suitably epic & genuinely moving - one of the series' best.

They'd done it. The most exciting Star Trek to date. A third movie wasn't just obvious, it was owed. They were obligated to provide fans with more. But how did they get around the fact that Spock was dead? I'll tell you. An entire movie devoted to correcting a plot point in the last entry to continue the series. Is Star Trek III the weakest of the first six? While ST V may argue, I'd say yes. Rogue 1 does correct a plot point from SW IV, but I'd rather just watch a movie that actually mattered.

I can see the whole problem with getting the 'feel' for for this movie right considering where it fits chronologically and I thought they did pretty well, but then they go all out on some CGI decisions which are pretty jarring.

The first Star Wars truly, corporately allowed to deviate from Lucas' ever-changing urtext, it inhabits the ethos and iconography of Star Wars, with none of the pageantry - thank God. If the original trilogy waxes nostalgic for WWII, Rogue One feels like a film on Vietnam: an intergalactic Platoon highlighting the Rebel Alliance's moral failures. Shockingly, it is also a remake-of-sorts of Kiss Me Deadly, even sharing its ending. Hope is not seen over the atomic horizon-only felt.

The opening half hour or so is bit too dry and unmotivated, though it does have good moments, but once it gets going it's a very interesting side story to the original trilogy. The characters are good enough to hold it steady and the more ethically muddled narrative is more meaningful than a more traditional hero's quest. The tone makes it so every death scene carries human weight.That the film can do that while still having a good sense of fun and adventure is its greatest achievement.

I managed to go into this completely blind, having no idea of the cast or plot, so imagine my joyous surprise at seeing Donnie Yen playing a blind kung fu master...in a fucking Star Wars movie. It's distinctly possible that I squealed like a girl. As for the rest of the flick: the CGI is good, the space battles are vibrant and chaotic, Darth Vader is a bad ass, and K-2SO is the best robot in the entire series. Plus Donnie Yen. Winner.

I ponder what it would take for a bad Star Wars movie to be made today. Then I remember big chunks of Phantom Menace/Attack of the Clones. Always be vigilant. Rogue One, luckily, is a fantastic Star Wars movie. Felicity Jones rocks. The story grits itself out spectacularly. Gareth Edwards shows a steady hand. The CG work was (mostly) done well, if a little jarring in parts. It's everything that this story, this missing puzzle piece, needed to be; it put a true face to that throwaway line in ANH.

Rogue One is an emotionally and intellectually vapid movie that serves only as expensive fan service to tide fans over while they wait for Ep. 8. It is a different type of Star Wars movie, but any benefit gleaned from looking and sounding different is lost by telling a thin story whose conclusion is already known. We have no reason to watch this tensionless, thematically empty bit of cinema, except to giggle with nostalgic glee when a line or character from previous films makes an appearance.

I enjoyed it more than TFA, but I am unconvinced still. We get an ensemble full of drafted-yet-incomplete characters who show promise, yet are fated to fail since this is all just a prequel! Redundancies and archetypes abound, but thankfully with drier humor. What made the SW universe so rewarding was how lateral it was and all there was to explore. Now, with Disney at the helm, linearity is the rule, and even tales that seem standalone on the surface all serve the greater, repetitive narrative.

It's missing a couple of scenes to build relationships and empathy amongst the main band of protagonists. But the core relationships; that between Jyn and her father, and Jyn and Cassian absolutely work. That and some questionable CGI are the only real complaints in what is the whole franchises best film along with Empire. Superbly cast, expertly shot and bursting with a genuine sense of peril and dramatic consequence. It's all the better for being a standalone story too.

I saw this film a few weeks after Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, and was reminded of just how timely the story is. We witness a world coming undone because of a madman leader who mistakes "peace" with "terror" as he's opposed by a heroic group featuring brown skinned folks, a woman, a disabled person mocked for no reason, and a persecuted member of a religious minority. But that ending action sequence made it more than just watching the tv news. Highly recommended.

I thought it was pretty good, but after reading Tatiana Maslany could've been the lead, I'm feeling pretty bummed. That could've been really neat. Anyways, decent Star Wars take on the 'slightly gritty war movie' genre. Dug the locations, but wish the characters had had just a bit more room to develop--Donnie Yen's Zatoichi character had the potential to be something very cool. 11th film of 2018.

Rogue One is undeniably Star Wars in the best ways possible. It offers galactic scope, great characters and humour, while paying homage to everything (prequels and animation included) that came before. While we know how events play out (Ep. IV opening crawl), this film still delivers a few surprises in a SW film that has stakes. A lot of fan service and nods but it rarely hampers the story being told. Not without flaws, this film delivers grand spectacle and hope of a more imaginative Star Wars.

It was a more serious Star Wars than I've seen since Empire, which might bother some who like their SW as light space-swashbuckling fun. *I* think it brought the peripheral gravity of the war's effect on common ppl to the fore, and expanding the scope of the new extended universe. This was a war movie and had the tone to fit. I preferred the directorial style of Gareth Edwards and found his use of nostalgia more effective compared to TFA, keeping it mostly for world building and continuity.

First I will state the positives : cool saber fight moment towards the end, Donnie Yen's character, loaded cast. That's literally it. I felt bombarded with important information that wasn't coherently emphasized. The whole last 45 mins felt like an endless series of levers and buttons that need to be pushed so that the good guys can reach the thing. There's absolutely zero sense of awe. Good thing they reiterated over and over again that this movie is about hope, might've missed it otherwise.

I will keep this short. The film does start slowly, but by the time the third act rolls around my jaw was on my lap and my dick was in my mouth. Might worth noting this is a film hardcore SW fans will enjoy the most. So much fan service which makes some of us feel really great for being invested in the Expanded Universe of Star Wars. That being said, this is still a film an ordinary fan can and should enjoy. Especially the third act which I believe to be one of the best from all of the films.

a more understated, micro-scale, street level film than THE FORCE AWAKENS, with a better script, cleaner action and slightly stronger characters (not much of a compliment - TFA's script was often eyerollworthy and every newbie other than driver and nyong'o left no impression on me), but it peaks lower and the ways it invests itself with the history and mythology of STAR WARS are less elegant, wondrous and, frankly, cinematic. still, few hollywood sci-fis possess this amount of quiet gravitas.

Some of the cameos are on the nose (and the methods of portraying them, questionable), and not much time is spent developing an organic chemistry among the cast, but 'Rogue One' is the best installment to the Star Wars saga since 1983. Better than any recent film in the series, this one truly earns the 'war' in its title, with its diverse, morally questionable characters; thrilling action set pieces; and dirty, lived-in production design.

Charmless and leaden attempt to milk a franchise is awkwardly constructed and directed; Jones and Luna register zero chemistry both alone and together (oh for the days of Fisher and Ford!) and the whole film feels like dreary marking time before the real exciting events of Episode IV. Tacky, unconvincing (and stomach churning) usage of the late Peter Cushing's image (looking like a reanimated corpse) is an apt metaphor for the film as a whole, though at least Vader's brief appearance is fun.

For me, this was the darkest Star Wars movie since Empire Strikes Back. It also happens to be one of the best Star Wars movies. The lead actors were great, the story was compelling, and there were enough nods to the rest of the series to let you know you were still watching a film that was part of the Star Wars universe. Something the film does well is convey the sense of desperation for the rebels. Rogue One is a wonderful addition to the series: one that gives further meaning to A New Hope.

I understand it's supposed to showcase a grittier, more secular side of the Star Wars world with its revolution-driven tale of sacrifice, but the tragedy is hard to appreciate when the characters are so uninvolving. Not necesserily bad, just underdeveloped. I don't even remember any of their names. The 2Pac hologram style CGI characters were also pretty weird to look at.

The whole movie felt really boring. None of the characters exuded any personality beyond their basic quirks and I just kept getting this overwhelming feeling of "why does this matter?"

Much like The Force Awakens, Rogue One is altogether too grounded in a foundation of nostalgia and fan service. Interestingly enough, the pros and cons of each film seem diametrically opposed: the retread injected with compelling new faces, and the more singularly toned war film with barely a note of individual personality. That one has character, this one has theme, both have some pretty spectacular action adventure antics, and the wheels are spinning, but at this rate we're going nowhere fast.

I feel like this doesn't get enough credit. Rogue One may not push the needle for the franchise, and you would be completely fine not watching it as it doesn't pertain to the main stories, but it's a very good film nonetheless. You don't need a lightsaber to tell a good Star Wars story, and Edwards did that on the biggest scale in cinema and that can be hard. I hope Edwards gets an opportunity to do his own Star Wars series, the dude definitely has the chops for it.

Don't go in expecting a Star Wars movie. In that, you may be disappointed. That being said, Rogue One is the best Summer blockbuster not to be released this summer. Amazing characters, jaw-dropping action, and a tight story set in between Episodes 3 and 4, all bolster the movie up to the point of greatness, even if they never quite get the feeling right.

Pretty solid. Better than expected actually. Could have been great without all the execs watching over it I guess, but still that's the path Episode VII should have taken.

Rogue One absolutely demolished my expectations and is arguably one of the strongest installments in the entire series. In terms of prequels it's superb and its story is very important to bridging a gap in the franchise. It manages to soar by creating new characters while not relying on franchise veterans. The finale is excellent and delivers so much for fan service. It's a bit familiar at times while also feeling quite different. It's definitely a winner. Fans rejoice! 4.5 STARS

One heck of a camel, with stupidly bad pacing and bland as hell characters (especially Cassian) in the first two acts.....but that final act, hooooooooly goddamn shiiiiiiiiiiiiit. Darth Vader makes a choking pun and it sucks. Starts off light on the references but then crams a load in in the second half and they feel really lame. But all of the climactic action is goddamn fantastic - the best dogfighting of the entire saga so far, at least.

Breathtaking production value. Worth watching for the battle scenes alone. But the acting is pretty good too -- although I didn't care for the casting choice of the lead (who looks altogether too clean and made-up for the entire run-time) the supporting cast is excellent. Great story and great ending.

I look forward to the day when this is the only canon prequel to the original trilogy.

After a second watch, this wasn't so bad. It is quite nice how it hooks into the Episode 4 opening and fleshes out some of the universe. The real problem is that it is bland and quite boring for large parts. It is more of a "war" movie than any of the other Star Magicks franchise, and it tries to have some stakes, but it just can't quite pull off what it wants.

Utterly and completely awesome! Star Wars meets Syrian conflict (allegorically that is ??), body count is about as heavy as Total Recall, but that just washed over me, it was an epic in all senses of the world. Quite liked the lead actress, the amazing use of motion capture in at least 2 instances and maybe 3, Hello again Lord Vader? No more spoilers. I will restrain myself somehow, though bursting with enthusiasm. Go see it quick! I say this as a fan preferring Star Trek over Star Wars. GRE

This film takes a long time to get going but the final third of the movie makes the experience worth it. The final third of the film is really exciting and there are a number of great scenes. The cast for the most part does a good job with their roles. Overall I would recommend this film.

The Star Wars movie I was expected with SW7, fit perfectly between 3 & 4. Worth the time.

It has more interesting imagery in it's first 20 minutes than the entirety of the by-committee Star Wars madlibs of The Force Awakens and it's space battles are significantly cooler. On the other hand the plot while less derivative is full of muddled superfluity and it's characters much less well scripted and performed. Is it better than TFA? Depends what you look for in a star war I guess: I want mythic world building with cool new sights and epic battles and on that front it probably wins out.

Good addition to the Star Wars universe. Not that I cared 100% about the story, but the film is well made and packed with action. Worth a bucket of popcorn.

Utterly boring until the final act. CGI resurrection of Peter Cushing to my eyes overcame the "uncanny valley" effect but is definitely devoid of any charisma.

Annoyingly unoriginal plot, shallow characters, stupid cliche lines, too action-packed, no possibility to get engaged with the story or the characters at all. Even the music is dull, and at times even outright annoying. Utter failure, total waste of a bunch of great actors' skills. And that fucking mantra "the Force is with me, and I'm one with the Force". Somebody shoot that guy! Oh... ok, thanks.

This is a Star Wars movie worthy among the ranks of the most lauded official entries. It is as I say: a Star Wars movie. The plot is tight and allows for both action-packed sequences and empathetic character development. Speaking of the characters, all of the new additions are interesting and unique, while old ones are used tactfully, respectful of their place in the franchise, while offering us something new to watch them do. You could swear that Peter Cushing himself was revived from the dead.

Star Worse is great when it has simple stories with complex characters. Vice versa, not so much. It's OK for an action movie, but there's not much here to charm or impress.
