Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

To set out my stall, I'm no Star Wars nerd, so I don't know all the in and outs of the charactors, but I think knowledgable enough to recognise the use of old footage or cgi of some of the rebel attack pilots and the death of Red 5? for Luke to take his seat.
I enjoyed TFA as it ticked all the boxes compared to the awful Lucas kiddie friendly pseudo computer game Jar Jar, race game, underwater chase, dancing on hot rocks rubbish.
So that of my chest!
Let's not forget the originals are not works of art themselves ANH and TESB are good and the third contain some really crappy stuff like the ewoks and the fire scene.
So I enjoyed Rouge one but the space battle scenes seemed over long. It nicely gets around the reason for the weakness of the Death Star. I liked the humour and the new droid. Was a little confused at the start, but was watching with the start of a cold and hangover.
Loved the fight scenes with the mix of martial arts and gun ho violence. Badgers scenes established his brutality.
The effects were superb apart from the CGI of P. Cushing, that was over used, sometimes it looked great and others times really bad, I lip read heavily although not hard of hearing and some movements were awful.
P. L at the end seemed unnecessary and could have been filmed from the rear only and really no need for the 'hope' bit to kitsch. But, after the death of Carrie Fisher it now becomes a lovely touch.
All in all 3 1/2 stars and a good film. It is after all only pretend and the idea is to enjoy it and now at 51 year old, it took me back to the thrill of the first and helps to erase the memory of the rubbish of G.L. last three attempts.
