The Rebellion makes a risky move to steal the plans for the Death Star, setting up the epic saga to follow. —IMDB

A thoroughly satisfying, enjoyable, well-paced, space adventure that happens just before the original Star Wars movie. The special effects are great. It’s the second Star Wars movie with a female lead, Felicity Jones, and she does a good job of playing the daughter forcefully separated from her parents who later joins the Rebellion. Australian Ben Mendelsohn is great as a baddie and there’s lots of action. The humour is excellent and there are a wonderfully diverse cast of characters. And the locations – wow! It runs over 2 hours 13 minutes — so take a toilet stop before it starts! For fans of Star Wars, I think you are going to like this one. Go see it!
