Rogue one : A Star wars story could have been better and that is the only bad thing about it. Keeping this one expectational point aside. Rogue One is a good one time watch. It has the plot of under resourced have not rebels fighting an imperial galactic government of tyrants led by Darth Vader.
The lines may the force be with you and I am with the force still create an impact. It has a plot of young girl Jyn Erso seeking revenge on the more powerful director Krennic of Imperial forces who is responsible for the death of her mother and her separation from her father , all for his naked ambition of making a weapon which can destroy planets. A weapon which is called menacingly the death star.
The movie moves with a good amount of Plot speed and characters are introduced with quick speed. Particularly impressive is the buddy pair of Chirrut and Baze. Chirrut is a blind Jedi and fights with deadly speed of a ninja his introductory fight is brief but very impressive. Baze is the typical cynical , I let my gun talk kind of street fighter. The droid K2SO also has his brief sharp moments.
Together these five odd characters take on the might of Darth Vader’s plan to destroy rebel planets and successfully end up sending the weakness in the build up of the deathstar to the rebel forces which means that in future star war episodes the rebel team could use it to get the better of Darth Vader and his death star.
In the process the whole team of these five warriors end up giving their lives.
The plot is simple and straight and moves at consistent speed without dragging at any point of time which is actually a reasonable achievement given the huge expectations with which audiences tend to walk into a star war movie series.
The background score while remaining loyal to the original theme in bits is reasonably good and original. The visuals , particularly of the moons and the planets and the spaceships are very well executed and add to the large canvas feel of the movie.
The action scenes particularly in the climax are very adequately executed. The movie also has some good humour moments ,particularly when the blind Chirrut is blindfolded by Saw Gerrera’s men and he exclaims – are you serious I am already blind.
Rogue one’s title justification comes right at the half point of the movie and must say it is both a brilliant plot point and justification of the title. In that sense the screenplay writer deserves some kudos here.
Star wars Rogue one will not probably get to the status of a classic but for sure it remains a good entertainer which is what you expect out of such a movie. Not bad at all and you could give it a try compared to the soft porn kind of duds which bollywood has belted out this week.
