While we don't have the same nostalgic attachment to Cassian, Bodhi and Jyn, that's what unburdens Rogue One, giving it a freedom to tell a story on its own terms.

It was nice to see something that was set in the Star Wars universe, but had a different tone to it.

By shifting to a higher power characters actually cry out to, Edwards achieves a rousing tale of honor and sacrifice that both deepens and broadens the rest of the Star Wars world.

When the film slows down enough for the dialogue to sink in, we realize that the story, such as it is, has been cobbled together from all previousStar Wars films combined.

... the flaws in the film are in that first hour of build up the rest of the movie is really good if not great...

While I loved The Force Awakens, it relied a lot on the nostalgia...But this movie? It could stand on its own and still be amazing.

Can I just say that I liked Rogue One: A Star Wars Story better than the last four Star Wars stories--even The Force Awakens, which was the top grossing film of 2015?

The action in "Rogue One" is extremely well-staged and exciting, and it's fun to see its small connections to the larger "Star Wars" universe...

... the directing is heavy-handed and uninspired, the plot with its many turns - lots of action that includes more fight scenes than the saga's other movies - develops predictably, even if it's not always easy to follow.

[Rogue One] is thrilling, at times dark, but also extremely entertaining regardless of your Star Wars knowledge.
December 4, 2017
The ending is filled with both a bittersweet tragedy and hard-fought victory; ' a new hope' is earned, and so is this film's place in the upper echelon of Star Wars lore.

...this is a film that gives us another strong independent woman such as Jyn in the Star Wars universe and we need more of them.
November 6, 2017
It is now a great starting point for someone new to this franchise. To quote one of the familiar lines from this space opera - "the Force is strong with this one"!

This is Star Wars for adults. Well-loved characters die, the violence is gory by and large and the atmosphere is more on the lines of the French Resistance during World War II than the light-hearted thrillers that George Lucas films were.

Rogue One certainly doesn't hit all its marks. But it surely hits enough to keep holiday audiences happy, particularly as its story begins to merge with the one we discovered all those years ago.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

It works more than it doesn't, and the story itself feels fresher than Force Awakens because it isn't a repeat of a previous Star Wars movie.
September 21, 2017
This is meant to be a standalone spin-off from the Star Wars movie universe, but it feels like Episode 3.5.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

... a reason to hit theaters this holiday season.

September 5, 2017
... the film is mostly a triumph - heavy on the action, light on the romance, and one of the best heroines to come out of the big screen in 2016.
August 31, 2017
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story sets the benchmark of how a good standalone film can be made without ruining a tight story with unnecessary sequels.
