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.

  • 4 stars "to say Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and star wars a force awakens were garbage films is ridiculous, did both have flaws of course but were far from bad movies, as for star wars new hope, empire strikes back and return of the Jedi their still the better films of the star wars saga, these new films are different No Doubt but that whole idea is not to make it the same as the original star wars to make it different and bring something new to the table rather the same old same old"
  • 2 stars "Acting was terrible, story was so so."
  • 3 stars "I rate this as a not bad movie, but wouldn't give props to anybody that would rate it a low star as their reviews are just nit picking the ridiculous and their opinions don't hold water, the yo yos that just throw insults thumbs down to them, I guess people think they can make a better movie I would like to see them try, as the rogue one got generally positive reviews from movie critics as I think they know best"
