5. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Directed by Gareth Edwards (V). It is the first of the new standalone Star Wars movies. Darker, grittier and bolder than any saga film to date. Rogue One maintains the essential elements of the saga: drama between parents and children, a totalitarian force to be destroyed, and outlaws (in appearance) who become heroes.

Visually it is a spectacular film not only by the special effects but also by the vast scenes that we find in other planets. In addition it has endearing characters and good performances, although Diego Luna has a little duty, is not all bad but is not a character that generates as much affection and admiration as others on the film. In its narrative, Rogue One is exciting for its action scenes and political intrigues, and achieves several touching moments, full of heroism and redemption, that invite us to see episode IV at the earliest, and wait with much anxiety the next to next year.
