Rogue One - First viewing - I liked this more than Force Awakens, mostly because the cinematography was good. However, the writing and story was really really bad. You never really got any motivation or understanding of why characters were doing anything they did nor why we should care about the characters. The film also jumped around way too much, it probably could have used an extra 30 minutes of time. And lastly, the biggest issue, Felicity Jones character was horribly dull; I just didn't care about her at all. 2 out of 5.
It should have been called, security flaw, the movie. Which would have been fine if it wasn't for the constant fan service and people resigning themselves to their fate / martyrdom. I liked that it was a whistle blower or rather a reluctant collaborator who made it all happen, not a chosen hero. I think people working on this franchise are trying to tell us something, which is great so I give em an extra star. 2/5
