Combining the "Star Wars" universe with taught espionage, "Rogue One" is an interesting addition to the franchise, but is admittedly talk-heavy and feels rather unnecessary.

The first of a planned anthology series stands on its own and is a great addition to the Star Wars saga. The movie takes place between Revenge of the Sith (2005) and A New Hope, (1977) its events bring audiences full circle to the place where Star Wars began almost 40 years ago. Rogue One is a beautifully shot, wonderfully acted movie. It has plenty of Easter eggs and callbacks, but they don't obnoxiously draw attention to themselves. The set pieces are top notch and the last act is filled with edge of your seat thrills and has its big emotional ending. This movie continues the resurgence of the Star Wars franchise and sets the bar very high for the upcoming movies.

I didn't love a lot of the Star Wars callbacks and felt that the new characters were a bit flat, but I did really enjoy the atmosphere and cinematography. Edwards really does a nice job of creating a good battle scene with scale, and Jyn Erso is the nicest of the new additions. Great practical effects and war tactility, but it was often hindered by the need to adhere to the Star Wars formula (ie. comic-relief droid, random throw-ins of old characters, CGI-ing the classic actors unnecessarily, and the Darth Vader inclusion). All in all, a solid blockbuster. Attrubution: https://soundcloud.com/mattflynn410/rogue-one-a-star-wars-story-spoiler-discussion

What I expected from this movie is a good time and that's exactly what I got the beginning of it was a little slow but it picked up fast and turned in to a real action packed treat to enjoy with the whole family go see it this Christmas season it is a good time for everyone but the smallest of kids they should be left behind when seeing this movie it's wayyyy too intense for anyone under 9 it's pg 13 for a good reason tuns of violence and action would keep smaller kids worried about our heroes threw the entire movie but aside from that it is a good treat to enjoy
