A More Grown Up Star Wars Movie-Not just for fans! Great set pieces, script, scenery and action!
16 September 2017
Let me first say I am a fan of Star Wars, but I havent let that affect my review. This movie, is far better than The Force Awakens. Dont get me wrong, I really did enjoy The Force Awakens with the fresh cast of John Boyega and Daisy Ripley, but this film has got a darker edge to it and is more grown up, even though its got a 12 Certificate. The film has got a fabulous storyline, which ties in to Episode 4 (the original Star Wars Movie). The acting, script and effects are all first class. The scenery and different locations throughout are breath taking. I cant believe anyone is giving this 1 star! I did get the Limited Edition Sleeve (see attached photos), but that's not why I'm giving this review 5 stars; the review is for the film. Lots of different scences, with plenty to take in and link to the original saga. There are lots for the hardcore fans to shout "Oh my God, its so and so" or "Wow, look, there is a..." and to bore their friends and family with links to the original-I got told to shut up in the end :-)
I've shown this film to at least 14 different non Star Wars fans-friends and family (not at the same time!), they've all said how much they enjoyed the film and it wasn't what they were expecting.
As a fan I must say 'hats off' to the writers and team behind Rogue One, the attention to details from the 1977 original are fantastic-Well done!
