Review: Rogue One

(No spoilers)

 

Disney and Lucasfilms gave us a new addition to the Star Wars story this holiday season and it is leaving people with tons to say! As the first spinoff movie of the Star Wars franchise, Rogue One brings fans a new look into the story that audiences of all ages have come to adore. The film is set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope and follows the story of Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), who is recruited by the Rebellion to steal the construction plans for the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the Death Star.

Rogue One is a must see that contains plenty of nods to the original trilogy. The story not only takes you back to a few familiar locations, it also brings back original characters of the franchise. Something a lot of die-hard fans will appreciate. Thanks to our ever evolving technology, Rogue One gives us some of the best cinematography of the year. Between the impeccable planetary landscapes, battle scenes, and the vivid alien makeup/costumes, it is safe to say the audience will be in awe of the breathtaking visuals.

We will not spoil the fun for you, but trust us when we say GO SEE ROGUE ONE! It will captivate you from beginning to end and plus… JYN ERSO IS ONE BADASS WOMAN!
