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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

What Rogue One does differently than its predecessors is turn the black-and-white dichotomy of the Empire and the Rebellion on its axis.

When Rogue One is following the "cool and different" edict, that's when it's awesome
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5
November 3, 2018
The nadir of this film's cynical, marketed traipse through the iconography of its franchise is in the preposterously pantomime mythologisation of Darth Vader.

Anyone worried that the Mouse House might take the edge off the franchise should take comfort in Rogue One being probably the grittiest entry since The Empire Strikes Back in 1980.

It really puts the 'wars' of this franchise front-and-centre like never before, and what it lacks in depth and polish it more than makes up for with spectacle and grit.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10

It's a mixed bag of a Star Wars movie, so it's basically par for the course.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
October 30, 2018
Its loyal to the franchise without ever being slavish, and it bends the established story at just the right angle, giving the saga's central conflict a new kind of life.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the worst theatrically released Star Wars yet. I know that many will lambast the work that George Lucas did in this prequel trilogy, but I have a soft spot for his vision with those films.

For those who grew up loving Star Wars, but have wanted the film series to grow up and become more nuanced and dangerous along with them, Rogue One does this, while still squarely existing within the design and narrative parameters of the universe.

This film brings something slightly different to the Star Wars universe while at the same time giving us a lot more of what we already know and love.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 5, 2018
Great battle scenes, heartfelt characters, and the knowledge that there can only ever be one make this a real gem amongst stones that have, at times, struggled to shine.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
August 30, 2018
A surprisingly dark yet brilliantly action packed and fun anthology film
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

When the action pivots on the exciting plot point of data transfer rates ... this mundane crisis doesn't seem elevated to a planetary level of urgency.
August 27, 2018
As the Rogue One draws to its utterly stunning space-battle close, it seems to feel it needs to hold hands with A New Hope - when it really just needs to pass the baton.
August 27, 2018
Edwards has a keen sense of awe and little regard for the humans underfoot.
August 27, 2018
I wanted to feel more in the trenches with these guys...but the action that was there was really good...I liked it more than the Force Awakens, and if you are a Star Wars fan, I'd say go see this right away.
August 26, 2018
It has everything hard core Star Wars fans want -- a feisty heroine, comic relief, quirky and unlikely heroes, incredible sets, and a soaring score.
August 22, 2018
There is zero depth here. You keep hoping for a transgressive moment that will make the cringe-inducing dialogue and gratuitous fan service worthwhile, but it never comes.
