Man, such a huge pet peeve of mine was finally answered! The movie was epic, definitely the movie of 2016. And I thought the perfect amount of Vader.
If I had to rate it in the saga it's at least 4th, possibly better than Return of the Jedi
The fault lies not with Ms. Jones, an appealing performer, but with Gareth Edwards, who directed doggedly from a delight-free script by Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy.
Rogue One is a minor little story with a likable cast and familiar Star Wars themes. But it tries so hard to be an epic masterpiece – with self-important speeches and an insanely outsize orchestral score – that it ends up a laughable parody of itself.
Perhaps the darkest, most action-packed Star Wars instalment, director Gareth Edwards’ standalone adventure establishes its own rhythm, balancing fan demands with grand, poetic moments unlike anything this cinematic galaxy has previously achieved.

Did You Know?
- This is the eighth live-action "Star Wars" movie (excluding three TV movies, which are not considered canon).
- In several of the trailers, there is a scene where two X-wing pilots are walking past two large hangars. In the background is a modern piece of construction equipment clearly bearing the logo of JCB, a UK-based manufacturer. (It's possible this will be cleaned up in post-production).

- Mon Mothma: On your own from the age of fifteen; reckless, aggressive, and undisciplined.
- Jyn Erso: This is a rebellion, isn't it? I rebel.
