Rogue One (2016)

Updated: Jul 31, 2019

Darker, dirtier, I suspect this is what they'd have like to have done with the main Star Wars reboot, but bottled it and instead just remade the 1977 original. I'm only just watching this, which probably highlights that I'm not a Star Wars fanboy. There are some spectacular shots, creatures, action and the sound effects are as fantastic as you'd expect. However, the story... well it's okay, but a little dull. Take out the already known back story (or fore-story) and it's pretty thin. The characters aren't great, the stand out being the robot! The last half hour is fun and exciting, the polar opposite to the dull tedium of the first 90 mins.
