Synopsis

Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) has never been one to follow rules. Separated from her parents at an early age, she was taken in by Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker). He left her on her own at age 16 and she's had to survive in the galactic underworld by cultivating skills in both fighting and cunning.

When Jyn is arrested by the Rebel Alliance, she is asked by Mon Mothma (Genevieve O'Reilly) to join a team in order to retrieve information about the Death Star — a nearly constructed weapon with the power to destroy an entire planet. If the Death Star's construction is completed, the Empire will become unstoppable.

It's up to Jyn, Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), Bodhi Rook (Riz Ahmed), and their pragmatic droid K-2SO (Alan Tudyk) to form the Rogue One squadron and help bring peace to the galaxy by stealing a technical readout of the Death Star. They eventually join forces with assassin Baze Malbus (Jiang Wen) and his spiritual partner Chirrut Imwe (Donnie Yen).

They're up against some stiff competition. Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn) is an Imperial military director who will stop at nothing to see the Death Star's completion, while Darth Vader (James Earl Jones) maintains a watchful eye on the weapon.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is a prequel to the original Star Wars movie - Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

  • 5 stars "I've been and always will be a Trekkie but you can't deny how great this movie is. Personally, I felt it started a little slow but it every movie needs to explain itself which is why I didn't knock a star. The acting is great, the action is great and the effects etc. are out of this world! In my opinion, this is one of the best Star Wars films to date. Disney is the, surprisingly, the best thing that happened to the franchise since the original trilogy. If you love sci-fi, you will love this movie... especially the last hour. Unbelievable ending and a great prequel. I can't wait for the next. Thank god they didn't let that greedy, slime ball Lucas near this film. lol"
  • 1 star "Yet another sequel to a movie that should have had it's last sequel in 1983. instead of : A Star Wars Story, it should read : A Shameless Sequel Cashgrab."
  • 1 star "It is Ridiculous how many 5 Star ratings a Movie this poorly made is getting. As with many other Bad Movies, the reviews are disproportionately stacked with 5 stars. Look at an honestly reviewed, Better Movie and you will see the breakdown is completely different. The Original 3 were true 5 Star Movies, nothing since, in Star Wars has been close, a 3 Star at best. I would have given this 1/2 a Star if I could have."
