Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) REVISITED—for Three Short Paragraphs…

3rd Viewing

I have barely anything to say about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Fans will fall head over heels for it because it’s two straight hours of unashamed fan service. Critics will think it’s alright because at least Gareth Edwards knows how to make a pretty-looking action flick. I, myself, think it’s “whatever,” because at least it’s not Solo: A Suck the Soul Out of the Best Character in Star Wars Story.  

But yeah, Gareth Edwards is adroit at creating scale and battle sequences. Tony Gilroy and Chris Weitz, however, are not the best at devising a solid plot structure, sensible character arcs, or just about anything that a script needs to be investing. Tis a shame. 

Bless, the divine profit that is K2-S0, nonetheless. 

Verdict: C+
