Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Easily one of the most anticipated films of the year, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story details the backstory of how the rebel alliance made it possible to destroy the Death Star in the original Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.  Featuring mostly new characters in the Star Wars universe, led by Felicity Jones, but also including Mads Mikkelson, Ben Mendelsohn, Riz Ahmed, and Forest Whitaker, this stand alone story sustains the quality and entertainment value we've come to expect.  It's not as much of a classic as the other entries, but the few faces you will recognize that pop up add enough giddy fun to make this required viewing for any Star Wars fan.

Grade: A-

Who is this movie for?  Star Wars fans, both old and young, will be adequately entertained.  And if you don't see it, you'll be the only one.  Do you want to feel left out?
