Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Rogue One stands up REALLY well. Also watched in order (before A New Hope) it ties together the story really well! For me it’s now officially the 4th best Star Wars film. Action packed with great, memorable 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!
Worth A Rewatch: Yes
