So much average
Wow! What a bizarre film! Unfortunately the few funny moments there were were quite overshadowed by it's completely weird and random vibe throughout.
A terrific literary drama and character piece that shows how the process of creating art can be seen differently by those doing it and those looking at it from the outside.
I'd always liked this movie since it came out in 2016. It had some great action and visuals with good enough story and characters. But for some reason, when I rewatched it tonight (August 2018), it really struck me. I don't even know why, I just went from thinking that it was good to loving it. The movie itself doesn't do a great job setting up the characters on its own, but I've read some books surrounding this movie since. A book called Rebel Rising which was all about Jyn, and a book called Catalyst which was all about Galen, both of which were pretty good. Especially Rebel Rising. So this time with the background knowledge, all the deaths had an emotional punch to them. And that final scene with Darth Vader is still as spectacular as ever. I'll give this movie an 87%
This movie instantly recaptures the spirit and tone of the original trilogy - it manages to seamlessly fit itself into that unspoiled universe, and after you've seen it, you'll swear it had always been there.It has amazing characters that you actually care for. The story of Jyn and her father is genuinely touching. The rebels are wonderfully portrayed as ruthless, morally ambiguous, and very unsure of themselves. Don't forget, this is all before Luke Skywalker emerged to give them an idealistic leader. Best of all, you get a chance to witness the buildup to the events of New Hope, experiencing the Empire as it was coming into its might.Forget the prequels with their CGI spectacles, forget the sequels with their flaccid, simpering emo crybaby villain, Kylo Ren. Rogue One is the Star Wars movie we've desperately craved since Return of the Jedi.
Even though I still do disapprove of Disney and Star Wars having that merger. I really enjoyed this movie it was a good tie in to Episode 5 and it explains how the plans of the death star were saved.My favourite bit was that scene with Darth Vader not going to say which one thought.It had good acting.Good special effects.It is very promising to Star Wars fans.There will be reviews for Episode 7 and 8 I will be doing but they won't be friendly or positive whatsoever. There will be a review for Solo as well once when I have got round to see it.If you want an example of a good Star Wars movie I would highly recommend Rogue One.Have a good day everyone and may the force be with you.
I'm not huge on Star Wars, but I really enjoyed this one!Characters were interesting, funny and the actors brought them to life very well. For the first time it wasn't about heroes who are always right(eous), but it took a more mature approach of each individual having his or her personal reasons to join the fight. Which I really liked, because it makes them way more relatable. The characters might be a little underdeveloped, but there is a pretty good reason for that (as most of us know), so that doesn't bother me at all. The story itself was also interesting and kept me hooked during the movie. Top that off with stunning visuals and audio (duh) and you've got a movie that you can enjoy for years to come.
