Review:  I know, I know. I’m about six months late with this review. Ah well . . .

I don’t think there’s a Star Wars fan out there that hasn’t seen Rogue One yet. At first I was unsure if I wanted to watch this movie. It wasn’t the sequel to The Force Awakens (which after that cliff-hanger, we can’t wait much longer), but I felt Disney did a pretty good job with that movie so I was willing to give it a go.

All I can say is wow. Rogue One is dark and gritty, reminiscent of The Empire Strikes Back and reminds me a lot of that movie. Our heroes are out-numbered and narrowly escape death several times. It doesn’t have the swashbuckling feel of the series movies, but it’s full of enough action and adventure to please any die-hard fan. With new worlds and a glimpse back in time before the story line of Luke and the gang, there are some references that fans will pick up on. I’m not getting into the ending but I have a feeling we’ll be seeing them again. Maybe?
