Did you find the plot interesting? 


Did you like the film or not and why? 

Yes I do like the movie because it dark and gritty, the mood of the film made everyone seem like they were taking it seriously and the x wings were astonishing. Also it shows the last couple days before episode 4, so good continuity.

What was your favourite bit & why?

My favourite bits were the Darth Vader moments, where they do on screen Introduction to the characters, Jyn Erso’s (Felicity Jones) Back-story, showing her growing up and then with flashbacks, she was the character which developed through the movie and the final battle at the end. 

What are the Main Characters and Why?                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) a rebellion soldier and criminal who wants to help the rebel alliance to steal the plans for the death star & The Rebels: Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), K-250 (Alan Tudyk), Chirrut Imwe (Donnie Yen), Baze Malbus (Wen Jiang) & Bodhi Rook (Riz Ahmed) who were hand picked by the rebel alliance to secure the death star plans. My one reservation is that it would have been nice to see more characters developed like Jyn, such as her hand picked team, but it’s ok that the film focuses on her character mostly because that is Star Wars tradition (to develop a main character).

Would you recommend this film to a friend?

Yes I will recommend it to every Star Wars fan around the world.

Rating: 4½ out of 5 stars – Flixster/Rotten Tomatoes.
