FILM REVIEW: ROGUE ONE

rogue_one_a_star_wars_story_poster

I was very satisfied with how Rogue One turned out. It was a combination between a war film and a caper film. After forty years of being left in the dark, we finally know how the Rebel Alliance stole the Death Star plans and won their first major victory against the Galactic Empire. Still, even though the Rebels won their first victory, there were heavy casualties, resulting in a bittersweet ending. They used CGI to bring Peter Cushing back from the dead to reprise his role as Grand Moff Tarkin and the resemblance was striking and realistic. Also, James Earl Jones returned as the iconic voice of Darth Vader, who was even more terrifying than usual in this film. In the film, we also learned some of Darth Vader’s secrets such as his private residence and what he does during his free time. There were hints and Easter Eggs scattered throughout the film that only the most devout Star Wars fanboys can identify. Overall, this film really connects the dots between Revenge of the Sith, Rebels, and A New Hope. I would recommend this film to anyone who wants to visit a galaxy far, far away.
