| Great Prequel to New Hope
I've just returned from the midnight showing of Rogue One here in the UK. I was slightly sceptical after watching Force Awakens, while enjoyed FA it did lack teeth and flesh.

Rogue one was a great prequel to New Hope.

We know that Princess Leigh had the death star plans but how did she get them ??.

Well now we know.

A few minutes into the film I felt disappointed that there was no Star Wars theme or rolling credits. Once I got past this the film started coming to life and put you right into the star wars universe.

There were nudges to the originals everywhere, old characters from New Hope were brought to live to return to the big screen.

There was plenty of visual eye candy here and a climactic ending that was truly stunning. I want to watch it again to see all the little details.

This is a dark and emotional film compared to others but it has its light hearted moments also.

Without giving too much away we follow a rag tag bunch fighting against the Empire and Lord Vader. A lost girl, a rebel agent, a defector, a novice trainee of the force, a hot shot gunner and a reprogrammed imperial robot. Alongside the rebel alliance they discover the existence of the Empires latest super weapon and must a find a way to destroy it.

The Bad -

1.Some of the dialogue is wooden but this goes for all Star Wars film.

2. There is a lull in action about midway through and the dark scenes at this point may bore some people.

3. No Jedi

The Good -

1. Amazing climactic ending a real visual treat.

2. Ties in really well to New Hope.

3. Interesting characters not your typical heroes which makes them more interesting.

4. I got emotional at the end x

If your a fan of the originals then don't miss this film. My Star Wars marathon just got better ( and bigger )

8/10 xx
