Let me start out by saying that I am just a casual Star Wars fan. I’ve seen the original trilogy and The Force Awakens. I’ve never seen the prequels, I don’t watch any of the cartoons, nor have I read any of the novels.
With all that being said…I loved Rogue One! It definitely put the WAR in Star Wars. I don’t want to give away any spoilers so I’m going to make my review pretty short.My favorite characters were Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, Chirrot Imwe and K2SO! Jyn Erso is just the hero that this movie needed and Chirrot Imwe is just fantastic! K2SO is an amazing droid! He’s a smart ass and he’s very sarcastic. He will keep you smiling!I think they had just the right amount of Darth Vador, and trust me he does not disappoint. The movie ends exactly where A New Hope begins.The only negative I would have is that the beginning is a little slow but the movie gives you a feel of the original trilogy without feeling like a movie from 1977. It will not disappoint!I definitely recommend this movie! I give it a 9 out of 10!
