Review: Star Wars Rogue One – Roller coaster ride from beginning to end

No Spoilers:
On opening night, I took a crew of kids ranging from 8 to 18 to see Rogue One.. Going in, I loved the concept of learning the story behind how the rebels obtained the plans for the Death Star.

I’ll start by saying that this is one of the darker of the Star Wars films. Lot’s of action. fantastic visual effects and some new characters I really ended up liking.

K-S2O is probably my favorite new character in Rogue One

K-2SO is probably my favorite new character in Rogue One. This image is from the cover of Empire Magazine.

Without spoiling the story, I like the fact that some of the rebel soldiers have to do things they are “not good” but in their mind, they had to do them to advance the cause. Some food for though to the kids that watched the film.

K-2SO – You kids will want this action figure after seeing the film. Go ahead and run to your local Wal-Mart and get this figure before they are sold out!

One other thing that really surprised me in Rogue One was how well ILM did on the digital actors.  WOW! They really looked awesome.. I guess that now an actor can life forever in future movies.

Lot’s of killing.. This one is on par with Clone Wars when it comes to action and body count. Disney did a good job of not making things too graphic for the younger kids.

All in all, I really liked Rogue One. Great addition to the Star Wars series and helps tie up some questions from the original “Star Wars: A New Hope”.

Can’t wait to see it again!
