Movie Review:Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

I recently went to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and it was an amazing experience.

I have always been a major Star Wars fan since I was a kid, and every time that a new movie comes out I am equally excited. However, I wasn’t quite sure if I was going to enjoy this one as much as I did. It didn’t feature any of the original Star Wars characters, and I was concerned that that would affect the experience.

However, it didn’t, at all. This movie bridged the gap between the third and fourth movies. Rogue One followed the group that captured the plans for the death star so that it could be destroyed in the fourth movie: A New Hope.

The main characters in this movie were Jyn Erso (played by Felicity Jones), Captain Cassian Andor (played by Diego Luna), Chirrut Imwe (played by Donnie Yen), and Baze Malbus (played byJiang Wen). The actors’ names will sound unfamiliar at first, as most of these actors have not been seen in movies with as big of a following as the Star Wars films.


This movie would be loved by both fans of Star Wars, and viewers who haven’t watched the series. The movie truly has the Star Wars style and feeling, without having all the characters that fans have become used to. However, Darth Vader does in fact make a small appearance in the movie, which is a character that watchers who haven’t seen Star Wars will still be able to identify.


Overall, Rogue One: A Star Wars story is a perfect fill in for in-between the third and fourth episodes. It completes the story perfectly, and although it does not have any familiar characters starring in it, it keeps the feeling of previous films. You don’t even have to have seen the original Star Wars films to understand and enjoy this movie. I would highly recommend anyone to see this movie.
