My Short Spoiler Free Rogue One Review

I went to the midnight showing of Rogue One last night and although I didn't get in until 3am with a full day of teaching ahead my inner Star Wars geek said I had to go!

As I know most of you haven't seen it I'll keep my review short, sweet and spoiler free.

Overall I really enjoyed it although it's not without flaws. Think a Vietnam war movie in space. Links up well to A New Hope and has some great new characters especially K-2SO and the kick ass Chirrut Imwe.

It was strange to have a Star Wars film without an opening credits crawl and you certainly felt the void left in the music with John Williams scoring. It just didn't have the same gravitas the original trilogy scores had and don't get me started on the CGI.ย 

Aside from that I liked it, a worthy addition to Star Wars cannon, needs another watch though to get all the references and pick up things I missed.ย
