Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – Theatrical Review

Former scientist Galen Erso lives on a farm with his wife and young daughter Jyn. His peaceful existence comes crashing down when the evil Orson Krennic takes him away from his beloved family. Many years later, Galen is now the Empire's lead engineer for the most powerful weapon in the galaxy, the Death Star. Knowing that her father holds the key to its destruction, a vengeful Jyn joins forces with a spy and other resistance fighters to steal the space station's plans for the Rebel Alliance.

The first entry in the stand alone Star Wars film series is, in my opinion, a huge success. As film that was spawned from a single line of dialog in A New Hope I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when the room went dark and projector started rolling. Rogue One thankfully delivers in all the right ways.

Let me just say that none of the entries in the star wars universe are perfect. There is plenty of weak dialog, plot holes, ect. However, none of that matters. There is something about these films that is able to take me out of my mind for a few hours and just sit back and escape my own thoughts.

I really enjoyed the casting in this film. There were two big stand outs for me Donnie Yen and Alan Tudyk. Even though the latter of which we never physically see in the film as Tudyk voices the best robot character since R2-D2. I was delighted with the casting of Felicity Jones and Diego Luna. I enjoyed their time on screen together.

I’ve enjoyed everything Gareth Edwards has directed thus far and Rogue One is no exception. Not only does he know how to stage and cut action scenes the scenery in the film was incredible. The final battle sequence alone would have been worth the price admission alone.

Rogue One is now one of my favourite Star Wars films of all time. I cannot wait to see this movie again and again. Pew pew pew.
