Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Action Adventure Sci-Fi


 

The Rebellion look to Jyn Erso for help to contact her father, a scientist enlisted by the Empire to build the Death Star.

For all its talk of rebellion, it's a little disappointing the franchise opts to take the safe route with "Rogue One". Despite stunning galactic visuals, the opening half of this instalment is somewhat lacklustre. Though once the exposition has settled, retro outfits and wisecracking robots hold our attention, along with glimpses of the Force to rekindle our nostalgia. Our thirst for action is finally satisfied in a spectacular and dramatic finale, where a colossal war of ships and troops battle it out on all fronts. Vogue one.
