Star Wars Rogue One
Star Wars Rogue One is the prequel to Star Wars A New Hope. The movie is about a father who helped created the Death Star and realized its capability of destroying planets so he goes hiding hoping not to be found by the imperial army. Unfortunately, he is found but he is able to get his daughter away from the imperial army. Fifteen years later, his daughter, Jyn Ersom played by Felicity Jones, tries to find her father and she ends up joining the republic to find her father and the plans to destroy the Death Star. Joined by her is Cassian Andor, played by Diego Luna, Chirrut Îmwe, played by Donnie Wen and Baze Malbus played by Jiang Wen.
The movie was action packed with the original Star Wars comedy lines every now and then. Darth Vader, voiced by Spencer Wilding, also makes an appearance in the film and when he walks out everyone is excited because he is such a well-known character in the saga. The flying fights were thrilling to watch as well. Unlike other flying fight scenes, this Star Wars film made it intense and exciting. In the film they also go to more planets it seems like compared to other Star Wars films.
Since it is Star Wars, everyone will have a favorite character. The top three characters in Rogue One are: K-2SO, played by Alan Tudyk, Chirrut Îmwe, and Jyn Erso. K-2SO is a robot, like C-3PO, but was built by the imperial side. K-2SO has a sarcastic humor and slap stick funny way of telling people what he thinks of situations. Chirrut Îmwe is insane at fighting, he is blind which makes it even more epic and just straight up embarrassing for the storm troopers. Chirrut can take on well over ten troopers all by himself, he claims to use the force when he isn’t a Jedi. Finally, Jyn Erso. Erso is a great character to represent women. She is strong and confident and when she wants to find something out she does it herself and if someone says do it another way she will still do it her way.
Overall the movie was intense, suspenseful, and just a fun movie to watch, especially if it’s a family tradition to see all the Star Wars films together. Star Wars Rogue One is in theaters everywhere December 16th 2016.
