What did you think of...Rogue One: A Star Wars Story?

The promise of an annual Star Wars film has so far been fulfilled after the launch of the new trilogy last year with THE FORCE AWAKENS and now the first standalone spinoff, ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY. It's a decent gamble, to a point, but ultimately with the words "star" and "wars" in the title it doesn't take much more than that to get asses in seats. Directed by Gareth Edwards (GODZILLA) and starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Mads Mikelsen, Alan Tudyk, Donnie Yen, Wen Jiang, Riz Ahmed, Forest Whitaker, and Jimmy Smits, the prequel tale of the mission to steal the Death Star plans is being sold as a Star Wars film with an emphasis on "war", while still retaining the familiar qualities of a galaxy far, far away.

The reviews thus far have been resoundingly positive, with RT's aggregated score sitting at 84% (if that kind of stuff matters to you). Chris Bumbray had a blast with the film in his review, giving it a 9/10 and saying that the film is, "A true ensemble in the mold of WW2 adventure classics like THE GUNS OF NAVARONE, ROGUE ONE is grittier fare than you’d expect. People die, and tears are shed. Anyone who thought it would be watered-down should think again."
