I know that for the next few years, at least, I'll see fewer and fewer interesting, engaging, stories, and more and more interchangeable shells surrounding interchangeable explosions.

[Rogue One: A Star Wars Story] is a full and engaging addition to the Star Wars canon, the sort of striking cinematic experience that is reminiscent of the reasons we came to love the Star Wars in the first place.

The first half felt like all action and no real character development, by the end of the film I found myself caring for the Rebel team as they undertook their last mission...

Rogue One isn't a bad film, but it has some serious problems, which prevent it from being great.

The truth is, what Rogue One truly succeeds at is repackaging a familiar experience so expertly that it feels unique.

I enjoyed every minute of it.

As a piece of fan fiction, Rogue One neatly ties into the original movie in an impressive way. But as a piece of cinema, it is entirely inconsequential and no amount of impressive special effects can hide the fact that it is soul crushingly dull.
