With Solo: A Star Wars Story out this week it felt a good time to revisit our previous reviews for the Star Wars films…
Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Rogue One is better than The Force Awakens. In fact it’s now officially the 4th best Star Wars film. Action packed with great, memorial characters, ample surprises and a convincing, driving narrative, this Star Wars story delivers on the promise despite extensive reshoots and rewrites at the latter end of production. The effects are everything you’d hope for and the battles at times breathtaking. Okay so not everything works well (see a few certain effects that break the uncanny valley) BUT this is by far the best blockbuster of 2016. A must see.
Best Bit: WAR!
