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.
... 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: 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.
