A rebellion built on hope. From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, Rogue One: a Star Wars story, an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire's ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

I was very skeptical when this was coming out, but was surprised to find that it was one of my favorite star wars movies. Great new characters, great backstory for the death star plans, and great movie in general.

I liked this Science Fiction DVD. For sexuality it is appropriate for children. It is violent. A child may find it scary. I love the Star Wars Series!

Spectacular visuals & a new cast of characters mixed with existing themes & characters along with a score from Michael Giacchino imitating the John Williams theme bring this back-story to this galaxy. It's easy to criticize this film from the unencrypted file server that looks like it contains 8 track tapes to bullet-dodging rebels that rarely get hit. Yes, you'll find yourself uttering, "that's impossible" to many scenes, but this all happened a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away & this adventure adds more meaning to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. It's entertaining & provides incremental value to the whole Star Wars story.

This movie was… pretty good. The morals were excellent, the acting was okay, and the effects were stellar. Only not-so-great things are that the characters were sort of hard to connect with and the plot was a little slow and confusing. Overall, a must-watch for any Star Wars fan (you have to have watched all of the other movies to understand this one).

Best Star Wars movie since Empire Strikes Back.

This is the Star Wars movie that real fans have been waiting for. A great adventure story with sophisticated and funny characters and gritty morality. (Star Wars is not simply supposed to be a vehicle to sell toys) Also best drone sidekick ever. Not the usual moron sidekick designed to appease Lucas' false view of childhood. Shows what can be done with a proper director.

Now that we have a proper prequel for Star Wars (New Hope) can we get an alternative sequel like this movie. One where the evil Skywalker family is long gone and people who are not afflicted with the mediclorian decease fight against the Jedi/Sith order to bring freedom and liberty to the galaxy. Just a thought.

1) Empire Strikes Back, 2) Rogue One

Whenever I see any of the installments of the STAR WARS franchise I am reminded of Peter Biskind's excellent book EASY RIDERS, RAGING BULLS. The two directors that Biskind singles out as assassins of the auteur sensibility that destroyed the studio system and subsequently saved Hollywood are George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. I saw the first STAR WARS film again this summer after many years and what struck me was its lock, stock and barrel embrace of militarism, something that was hard to do even in a Hollywood blockbuster coming so close on the heels of the U.S. defeat in Vietnam. ROGUE ONE is cookie cutter schlock. The final battle on the planet Scarif is decent. But this is a movie for children, or adults who want to see the same film over and over again.

Uninspired, derivative, and barely entertaining.

The movie is really good. It moved. I thought it will be intense but it is not really intense. I recommend.

Utterly dreadful. Donnie Yen is the only bright spot in this pathetic fiasco of a tired retread.
And, for 40 years since 1977, we have been wondering why Imperial stormtroopers need to wear that ridiculous armour, since it only ever takes one tiny shot to kill them.
The recent review at the BBC stating that the only good Star Wars was the very first one is correct.
A complete waste of time.
