    PROS 1. Darth Vader scenes were awesome! CONS 1. The best part of the whole movie was the ending 2. The Plot 3. The Characters 4. It took forever to blow up Jedha & Scarif. 5. What’s with the squid creature? 6. Death Troopers were pointless Overall, It’s a good movie; but it’s not a Star Wars film. The most important thing about a Star Wars film, is the characters as well as the plot. Instead of the lame characters like Rogue One & Krennic; I would’ve made Leia, the alliance, Tarkin , and Vader the main Characters. Because watching this before the Original Trilogy is pointless.

    By The originals are the best
    Ok this movie is ok. The reason why I say that is that Darth Vader is in it!! Other then that this movie is bad. We need more Luke and Vader. This movie is a let down.
  • Like the best Star Wars movie ever

    Wow. Such an amazing masterpiece of a movie. I love this, and it is one of the best movies in the Star Wars Skywalker Saga I have ever seen. Me and my family are in awe of this movie and all the promise it showed. A great movie with an amazing storyline that keeps you interested and locked in. Also, Michael Giacchino does a great job doing the soundtrack of this movie. 😍😍😍

    The mindset of the producers and director was more than just perverse. It showed absolutely no comprehension of the heart of the entire Star Wars universe. You form a connection with one character after another and you root for every one, but what you are left with is a series of disappontments. All this movie is about is filling in the blank about everyone who died to get the Death Star plans to Leia. PERIOD. It is an enormous downer, just enormous.

    The exciting breakthrough in this film is that the filmmakers are allowed to toy around with traditional star wars fandoms, such as after we see the traditional “long time ago” slogan on the screen, we happen to not get the usual star wars title pomp & circumstances. This is just the beginning, Rogue One is not the first spinoff of the star wars franchise but its the first to have the confidence to deliver beyond par level. The Actors all perform deep, emotional characters who all come from dark places in their lives but are brave enough to risk it all despite having nothing to loose, and the dialogue amongst each character is so inspiring that it makes us truly build an attachment toward each character. The Story opens with a family maiden named “erso” a father named Galen played by (Mads Mikkelson) and his wife who have a daughter named jyn, voiced by the new (Felicity Jones) they are living in exile on a farm land till they are found by who is the lead worker for the soon to be operational Death Star. The name is director Kreenic voiced by (Ben Mendelhson) who is trying to recruit Galen to work with him on the new station. The reasoning is described in strong words “your confusing peace with terror” this is a solid touch of dialogue that gives the plot plenty or strength to keep us in the loop start to finish. Kreenic takes Galen hostage but cant find the hiding daughter Jyn who is found years later by a message man named Saw Gerrera played by “Forest Whitaker” who seems like he has asthma due to the fact he’s constantly breathing through a tube and has a voice that barely has oxygen. Jyn is soon grown up and kept off the grid by Gerrera, her biggest challenge? Convincing even the rebels that she isn’t a villain due to the fact her father is responsible for building the “Star”. Eventually the word gets out about the capability of the weapon, and soon a holographic message from Galen himself is presented to Jyn, who informs her to spread the word about the “weakness” in the star, by damaging a reactor to blow it up, those who are familiar with the famed original would get the point. Jyn is soon paired up with 2 companions, a robot named K-2S0, and a rebel named Cassian (Diego Luna) who set off to find answers on how to combat the Death Star. The robot is for once not annoying or obnoxious, not throwing shade on C3P0 but this cyborg has humor & wit, one thing that was lacking in a non human being. Meanwhile Kreenic is trying to please a fan base for being the main contributor to the stars construction, he is poised to demonstrate the weapon by destroying a city. General Moff Tarkin who was in the original Star Wars, is represented about 40 years later by almost an exact lookalike, the actor name is disclosed but i find it very impressive how you can find a random actor to play a character who looks so alike its scary but fascinating. Theres a stellar sequence when the Galen message is being delivered, the star positions itself to destroy a city where Jyn is and to even create an eclipse, the explosion is more in an upward motion, the ground slowly rises as if a volcano was erupting from underneath and its fascinating to watch. The climax is taken place in the end where the rebels set off to get the Death Star plans stored in a facility on a beach planet called Scareth. A couple battle sequences take place and it is awesome to watch, the movie has great special effects and amazing visuals the camerawork makes the film feel as authentic as its characters. This is also a better film than 2015’s Force Awakens, This one has more to offer, the characters are all inspiring and the story has originality which was the lackluster from “Force” this isn't about heroism but “a rebellion being built on hope” which is the movies main strength. We get the hint at what happens in the end to the characters because this leads directly to the original and we even get a reappearance from Darth Vader and yes James Earl-Jones voices. Overall A very powerful film, dark and deep, and is not afraid to throw away characters we feel deeply attached to, thats the kind of screenplay that never fails because in the end, the audience still feels a reason to cheer with awe.

    For once Disney you are FANTASTIC Gimme more of this goody goody candy. Admittedly I was heartbroken in the end. And I would’ve liked more Vader scenes—I also think there should’ve been a hologram of the Emperor or something being like “Do not fail me!” I also think that Krennic should’ve been killed by Vader or Palpatine for failing instead of being blown up. But this is more like Star Wars; I just wanted more Sith scenes! One thing is that you either love it or hate it (unless you’re me, I guess). My dad loves it, my brother hates it, and my mom doesn’t really care enough about Star Wars to cast a vote. My complaint is character development; who is this Guerra guy? Why was Jyn a prisoner? There is zero backstory and it irks me a little. But seriously go see it! It’s not gonna give you new stories if that’s what your hoping; it’ll be a twist on what you already kinda know—and while you know how it’s gonna end, you still bite your nails all the way through! (If your me)
