Our Score
A new group of rebels do battle against the Empire in this "standalone" chapter of the saga, which nevertheless fits neatly into the story timeline between 2005's Revenge of the Sith and the original 1977 Star Wars. Felicity Jones heads the cast as Jyn Erso, whose father reluctantly helped design the Death Star, and now plans to steal the blueprints to prevent any further evil. Director Gareth Edwards delivers a fast-paced and thrilling film that, while littered with various motifs alluding to previous episodes of the franchise, merges with its own strong identity and sense of purpose. Jones is a feisty and likeable heroine, and has terrific support from equally ragged freedom fighters Diego Luna and Riz Ahmed, and the series unveils another soon to be iconic android in the form of wisecracking and sarcastic K-2S0, voiced by Alan Tudyk (Serenity). Quite where the story goes next is anyone's guess, but for now Rogue One holds its head high among the very best of what went before.
