While I'm not the biggest Star Wars fan, I found myself going to watch Rogue One (obvs).
While I found SW Episode 7 to be more of a repeat of Episode 4, the writing for Episode 7 and Rogue One seems to be that much better.
The acting was fairly well done, especially in moments when some of the one liners were delivered making a very serious moment funny.
The film does really well in terms of showing the audience how the Rebellion came about getting the Death Star plans.
I found the build up to Darth Vader and Princess Leia's scenes were a bit of a let down compared to the moment when you first see Darth Vader in Episode 4.
The camera work, lighting, sound, editing and SFX/VFX were really well done.
While the film is a stand alone film in the Star Wars franchise, it is worth checking out.
