Rogue One (2016) Hollywood Movie Review By Screen International
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.
Rogue One (2016) Hollywood Movie Review By Total Film
Rogue One might trade heavily in nostalgia but 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.

Rogue One (2016) Hollywood Movie Review By New York Daily News
It stands alone as the best “Star Wars” entry since 1980’s “The Empire Strikes Back.” Yes, it’s that good.

Rogue One (2016) Hollywood Movie Review By Entertainment Weekly
Rogue One would have been a very good stand-alone sci-fi movie if it came out under a different name. But what makes it especially exciting is how it perfectly snaps right into the Star Wars timeline and connects events we already know by heart with ones that we never even considered.

Rogue One (2016) Hollywood Movie Review By Empire
The ultimate Star Wars fan film, it’s short on whimsy but when it gets going there’s enough risk-taking and spectacle to bode well for future standalones.

Rogue One (2016) Hollywood Movie Review By The Hollywood Reporte
What fans will get here is loads of action, great effects, good comic relief, stunning locations (Iceland, Jordan and the Maldives) and some intriguing early glimpses of the Galactic Empire as it begins to flex its inter-galactic power.
Rogue One (2016) Hollywood Movie Review By The A.V. Club
It has undeniable weaknesses: an underwritten protagonist, a generic villain, a shortage of interesting personalities. (No knock against the large cast, which is mostly very good, but underused.) But in many other respects, it is a better film than last year’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens: leaner, darker, with a distinct visual style and an actual ending that feels like a denial of blockbuster expectations simply because it shows basic narrative integrity.
