Rogue One

Taken place before the events of the original 1977 Star Wars, “… in a galaxy far, far away, the Rebel heroes featured in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story took the first step that led to the Death Star’s destruction.” (Variety) Former scientist Galen Erso lives on a farm with his wife and young daughter Jyn. His peaceful existence comes crashing down when the evil Orson Krennic takes him away from his beloved family. Many years later, Galen is now the Empire’s lead engineer for the ultimate weapon of destruction, the Death Star. Knowing that her father holds the key to its destruction, a vengeful Jyn joins forces with a spy and other resistance fighters to steal the plans to the Death Star. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves

Critic Comments: “It stands alone as the best Star Wars entry since 1980’s The Empire Strikes Back. Yes, it’s that good.” (New York Daily News) “(Director) Gareth Edwards’s dark, dashing, thrilling film earns its place in the Star Wars canon.” (Vanity Fair) “Rogue One spins Star Wars into a whole new orbit.” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch) “As the puzzle pieces snap into place, with a level of precision and economy that honors and even transcends the narrative foundation of A New Hope, Rogue One at last finds its own reason for being. For one thrilling final stretch, everything old really is new again.” (Los Angeles Times) “Rogue One stands on its own, an entry that is at once part of the Star Wars franchise (obviously) but also separate – a tougher, grittier film.” (Arizona Republic) “Rogue One actually gets better as it goes along, and the combat-heavy last third of the movie is pure pow with a cherry on top.” (Rolling Stone)
