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.

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.

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.

This is meant to be a standalone spin-off from the Star Wars movie universe, but it feels like Episode 3.5.

... 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.

While Rogue One: A Star Wars Story does not bring the excitement of the surprising, original 1977 Star Wars (almost 40 years ago!), it does offer many similar pleasures.

Rogue One captures and develops the epic yearning and philosophical difficulty of the original series' DNA.

What ought to be a raging call for rebellion sputters and coughs and then finally lapses into stupefied incoherence.
August 14, 2017
Luckily, this is a film so rooted in the archetypal heroic quest that everyone can enjoy in varying degrees: hardcore fans, newcomers and young children alike can appreciate the rebels and their fight against the Leviathan

A truly stand-alone Star Wars film is worth waiting for. But a prequel this good is a first for Star Wars, too.
June 26, 2017
There's a certain weight here that hasn't necessarily been present in most of the other films. And that, plus the film's talented, diverse cast, makes Rogue One a truly unique twist on the familiar format.

Rogue One is not about people who get a medal and a kiss from the princess. Rogue One is a war film. And it's very, very good.
May 5, 2017
Rogue One starts wearing out its welcome at about the hour mark, and there's another 75 minutes to go; the movie, lumbering like those AT-ATs, feels like it stomps along forever.

This is a slightly darker shade of Star Wars adventure, for better and for worse. But it's also a refreshingly diverse collection of heroes this time, a multi-cultural crew against a white supremacist dictatorship.
