In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire's ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
“It's bold enough to take risks, and will leave you stirred, fired up and raring for more. Now, if only there was a follow-up we could go away and watch immediately…” - Matt Maytum, Total Film
“It stands alone as the best ‘Star Wars’ entry since 1980's ‘The Empire Strikes Back.’ Yes, it's that good.” - Ethan Sacks, New York Daily News
“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.” - Tim Grierson, Screen International
“Spins 'Star Wars' into a whole new orbit.” - Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“With the smashing Felicity Jones giving us a female warrior to rank with the great ones and a cast that knows how to keep it real even in a sci-fi fantasy, ‘Rogue One’ proves itself a Star Wars story worth telling.” - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“A minor miracle in and of itself, Edwards' ‘Rogue One’ somehow delivers on almost all of its weighty pre-release promises whilst at the same time besting ‘The Force Awakens’ for sheer spectacle and world-building.” - Daniel Green, CineVue
“It starts off slow and somewhat clunky, but by the time the mind-blowing third act arrives, it’s all a fan can do not to stand up and cheer.” - Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
