Before Luke Skywalker became a Jedi or met Han Solo, Jyn Erso was a rebel amongst rebels who didn't like to play by anyone's rules. When the Rebellion is desperate to find a way to take out Darth Vader and his forces, they use her criminal history to do it. Jyn and a group that includes a swordsman, a droid, and some individuals not allied to any particular side of the conflict, set out to steal the plans for the Death Star to give the Rebellion an edge.

Awful or Awesome? Somewhere in between
Overall Rating 
 
3.0

I finally saw Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on New Year's eve with my family and here is my spoiler free review. This movie got some mixed reviews from my family and friends. My family generally did not like it and even went so far as to call it awful. Yet a friend of mine thought it was awesome. How could people have such a variety of opinions you may ask? Let me try to explain.
 
One of the reasons for the negative reviews is that most of the characters are brand new. The beginning of the movie is especially confusing as you are introduced to a family and an authority figure from the Empire that many have never heard of.  If you want to learn more about the scientist named Galen Erso, his wife Lyra or their daughter Jyn I suggest you check out this Wikipedia link or my review of the Star Wars book Catalyst. The story is about Galen, the scientist that creates the super weapon used in the Death Star, and Jyn, his daughter. Jyn leads the Rebels in a daring attempt to steal the Death Star blueprints in order to learn how to destroy it.
 
So if you were hoping for a continuation of the  Star Wars: The Force Awakens you will be disappointed since this movie fits into the timeline directly before Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. However, Star Wars fanatics will understand that this movie is meant to provide details behind the sad state of the Star Wars universe before the new hope occurred.
 
I did find that the movie could have been edited differently to better develop the characters and explain their motivations. The movie was unevenly paced and the acting by the actress that played Jyn could have been much deeper. 
 
And is anyone else tired of Star Wars movies that focus on the destruction of a death star? I compare creating the death star to the usage of battleships. After Japan bombed Pearl Harbor the United States realized that a large, slow moving battleship was a bad weapon against the fast moving, heavily armed Japanese air force. Why continue to waste so much of the Empire's budget on a death star that is just a target for the Rebels? How could you ever keep such as giant and deadly weapon secret? How stupid are the members of their government and military anyway?
 
So I digressed but I give Rogue One: A Star Wars Story an average rating of three out of five stars. It told the story of an important event but the movie only served as a gap filler until Star Wars: Episode VIII comes out in late 2017.
