The Star Wars franchise has a chequered past when it comes to prequels, but Rogue One is welcome addition to the lineup, with action, storyline and lore making for a great mix.
PROS
New characters; Great special effects; Well paced action
CONS
Deeper arcs required
VERDICT
Where other prequel Star Wars films felt drawn out, with characters you never had any true connection with or affinity for, this new addition immediately sucks you in and holds your attention for its entirety. It's a feat that Gareth Edwards can be very proud of, especially as the scope of his storytelling is always limited by the fact that the audience are fully aware of how A New Hope will begin.
