ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY (Theatrical Release USA 2016)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì 

Star Wars: Rogue One—much better than Star Wars VII though IX—has heart, a better written storyline, and better structuring than the last three Star Wars productions. It has the feel of the original George Lucas films although it does not, unfortunately, quite capture the George Lucas spirit. Disney deserves a thank you and congratulations for finally making the Star Wars story their own without putting the Disney stamp on it. The acting is great to good. This film is more than worth watching and gives the series that much needed breath of fresh air to continue the Star Wars saga.  The film is a great watch and can be watched as a stand-alone movie.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This small addendum to the Star Wars series is both welcome and highly entertaining. The movie more than earns audience time and monetary expenditure. It stays true to the Star Wars story and incorporates a stronger human element into its plotline that is much higher than Stars Wars VII through IX.
