Yet another sequel to a movie that should have had it's last sequel in 1983. instead of : A Star Wars Story, it should read : A Shameless Sequel Cashgrab.
It is Ridiculous how many 5 Star ratings a Movie this poorly made is getting. As with many other Bad Movies, the reviews are disproportionately stacked with 5 stars. Look at an honestly reviewed, Better Movie and you will see the breakdown is completely different. The Original 3 were true 5 Star Movies, nothing since, in Star Wars has been close, a 3 Star at best. I would have given this 1/2 a Star if I could have.
Boring, in a word. The Poster should a picture of a Dairy Truck, since they are milking the franchise for all they can. Save your money and take a nap, better use of your time, it is that bad.
Anyone who thinks this is the best star wars yet needs to get a life and a brain.
Well told storyline better then the last Star Wars Film . Thank you George Lucas.
Seriously? Haven't see a SW movie in 20 years and it felt like this one was done in the 80's too. Lame visuals, weak storyline....not impressed
I miss the humor, satire and personalities of the original movies. I guess another Harrison Ford etc is too hard to find. Felicity Jones is good but has weak counterparts and not a very clever script to play off. All the action you expect is here with the same old plot lines etc. Just not a lot of soul here. The movie sort of has an assembly line feel to it. Put in the correct ingredients and make a movie. Pass
Best one yet, lots of action. Hope they do another movie predating this one to get some backstories that are missing.
Rouge One was the best since New Hope. Force Awakens was not so great. Glad this movie came out on time.
Episodes 4,5,6 were all great. Then 1,2,3 came out n were aweful and just about ruined Star Wars movies for me. ForceAwakens was so-so with the worst acting(only BB8 could salvage such a horrible movie) . Rogue 1 is the best StarWars movie since episode 4-6 by a million galaxies.
Fantastic scenes and you can see much better some of the details in 3D. :)
My 12 years old son who did not like Star Wars went with last week and he liked the movie. Now he is fan of Star Trek and Star Wars. The movie was fine and much better the Force... lol
same old, same old in a word B O R I N G !
Easy to see the person who gives this movie 5 stars is the same jerk who has given this movie 5 stars about 60 times. Time he grew up and realized he is no longer in short pants, or perhaps he is.
Refreshing story. No needed for introduction. Funny how Darth Vader was running behind the Rebels but he could not stop them. Powerful Sith but hopeless when Rebels decided to United against him.
A great Star Wars come back since the New Hope. :) My whole family had a good time watching the movie.
When the movie comes out to stores I will buying to complete to my collection of Star Wars movies. The scene of Darth Vader coming out for the first time was amazing like he was introducing for the first time again. Going to watch the movie soon one more time before goes away from the big screen.
Movie introduced new characters that sadly will not in future movies. The girl showed the strength to fight back the man who killed her mom and black mailed her father. Robbed the plans of the Death Star screwing up forever the Sith. The story line was amazing.
Lol. I can't believe some people are upset because some are given 5 stars to the movie. Did you work with the imperial? Got foolish by the rebels? Chill out. The movie was good from my point of view and others. The sound track was good. The story was fine. I like how showed the people who fought back to get the Death Star plans.
I loved how they presented the Jedi who survived to order 66. The movie did not started with the typical Star Wars introducion which made the movie more interesting. More mistery to added to the movie. Glad I went to seeing this movie. Going tomorrow to repeat this movie.
The imperial stories and the rebels story. Glad they made a story about what happened during the construction of the Death Star. I can't wait to watch Han Solo story. The movie still under production.
When Princess Leia apeared in the movie was the perfect connection with the New Hope. The New Hope can't reboot and real Star Wars fans know that was an unique movie. The movie that started the Saga which many us are never going to forget. The most amazing story full of wonderful surprises. This one was another good beginning of story.
Movie have wonderful scenes and Darth Vader was the best villain in the movie. What is wrong with you people who are given lower rates? Did you get your family kill at the Death Star?
Movie was great. I don't an idea why people are attacking too much this movie. Did you find your daddy was working at the Death Star and the rebels ruined your plans? Lol
not rating the film but the folks that give it a low rating, two thumbs down to the people that think it was crap, I would say they don't like a good movie and I guess they can make a better one, ya right and pigs can fly p.s the people that give it a low star rating would luv to know what they think is good but afraid to ask
If you wanted to see true sci-fi hopefully you spent your money on DR Strange
Absolute no redeeming qualities with this movie, anyone who rates it higher then2 must have spent their lives watching cartoons.
OMG, is this movie still playing?..
Not sure why people who didn't like a movie should be criticized for scoring it accordingly.
The sooner this movie leaves the theatre and goes to TV the better.
For those who gave this movie one or two stars, what is wrong with you? Are you dead inside? Or are you just a vapid person with no real emotions inside?
Waiting for the Han Solo movie. Wishing same style as this movie. The Dearh Star was not so powerful when they builded the first time. They were able only to destroy some areas. The after effects were great.
The story was perfect. The mistery behind who sat the plans for the Death Star. Good memories from the first time I watched Star Wars in 1977. The director was able to bring back the good times from Star Wars.
Love the batlle parts. The characters too. Good story about how they builded the Death Star.
Just watch it and judge it for yourself. I liked it alot. Obviously there might be a flaw or two, but still really good.
If ever there is another Star Wars like this I will certainly avoid it.
Now that the rush is over hubby and I planned to see Rogue1 but after talking to a few friends who went and said, Save Your Money, we decided to see a different movie which was a 3.
better second time around luv it that much more beside it few flaws, but if don't know what the director was trying to do then u wont appreciate this film for what it is ( watch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - "Behind The Scenes ) and too say it was a garbage movie and a waste of time then I would question your taste in movies, and the plot was pretty simple telling the story of how the plans got in the hands of rebels, don't listen to people giving a low rating as the saying goes their no counting for taste, u would never want to listen to them ever, go see rouge one for yourself specially it better on the big screen
best SW movie yet! One that is not aimed at kids!
The family enjoyed the previews and popcorn.
It appears this is a love it or hate it movie. My husband And I enjoyed 20 minutes of it, other then that is was all fluff with horrendous acting and disjointed plot
Rogue 1 is really worth 1/2 but as that isn't possible my brother and I each give it 1/2 and that's generous
Save your money
The best movie from Star Wars since the New Hope. Also the Return of Jedi.
It was one of the better in the series. Very entertaining with a sustainable storyline that didn't get lost in space action. Good set design. A little frustrating as the good guys slip and fall and drop thing seconds away from ultimate safety. Strangely, midway through the film I started to dislike the rebels as they seemed to want only to wreck up a beautiful island leaving rubble in its wake. A blind ninja rebel dispatches an enemy and as he's just reaching safety, a jerk calls out to him, basically killing him by delaying his retreat. But the rebels succeed in their mission and fly off to better clime.
The adventure starts again. :) Good for kids and adults.
I recommend to see this movie in 3D. I like how introduced the characters without too much mystery. Darth Vader was fantastic.
My family had fun watching the movie. Great time. We are planning to repeat the movie again. :)
