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.

  • 2 stars "the special effects were good. that is the only reason I gave it 2 stars. the acting was wooden. the storyline was like deja vu. no originality at all. I'm watching it and am so bored. and why does that newer robot have to sound just like c3po? really does it have to also have the exact british accent? would have been a lot more unique if it sounded like a Japanese samurai or something."
  • 1 star "Please let it go. After the 1st 3 movies we have been roped in to watching the same plot with different actors and robots. Star Wars was a masterpiece for the 1970's. A much poorer version released nearly 40 years later is on par with Friday 13th episode 1,000. George write something original or retire please."
  • 2 stars "Absolutely boring. CGI was good but the storyline sucked."
