  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)

    Rated PG-13, 133 min. Directed by Gareth Edwards. Starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Alan Tudyk, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, Donnie Yen, Riz Ahmed, Jimmy Smits, Ben Daniels and Mads Mikkelsen.

    The first stand-alone spinoff of George Lucas’ revered Star Wars saga, Rogue One kicks ass in all the right ways. Like an Imperial Star Destroyer, it starts off slow and somewhat clunky, but by the time the mind-blowing third act arrives, it’s all a fan can do not to stand up and cheer. The premise here – the canny script is credited to Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy – takes a single sentence from the original 1977 Star Wars screen crawl and fleshes it out into a 133-minute meditation on (a new) hope, loyalty, and freedom from tyranny that’s now more contemporary than ever. Jones is Jyn Erso, recruited to lead the swashbuckling Cassian Andor (Luna) and a breakaway band of renegade rebels on a mission to discover the whereabouts of the Death Star’s schematics. At its heart a World War II suicide-mission movie, Rogue One also has a tearjerking abundance of heart. Read a full review of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
