“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is a movie that takes place in the Star Wars universe and tells the story of how the Rebels were able to obtain the plans for the Death Star, which was pivotal in their ultimate victory against the Empire.

The movie begins with protagonist Jyn Erso being rescued from an Imperial Labor Camp by Rebel Alliance intelligence officer Cassian Andor. Jyn’s father, Galen Erso, is working on developing a powerful weapon for the Empire known as the Death Star. The Alliance believes that if they can find Galen, they can gain access to information about the weapon and potentially destroy it.

Jyn initially has no interest in helping the Rebels but changes her mind when she learns that her father may be alive and has been instrumental in designing and building the Death Star. Jyn joins a small group of rebels consisting of Cassian, Chirrut ?mwe, Baze Malbus, Bodhi Rook, and K-2SO.

Their mission is to locate Galen and extract him from an Imperial facility on Eadu. However, once they reach Eadu, they discover that Galen is not willing to leave with them. Instead, he reveals that he intentionally designed a flaw into the Death Star’s design which could theoretically be exploited to destroy it.

After an intense battle on Eadu with Imperial forces led by Director Orson Krennic, who is responsible for overseeing construction of the Death Star, Jyn’s team retreats with Bodhi transmitting Galen’s message confirming his revelation about a fatal weakness in the superweapon.

The team travels to Scarif where they infiltrate an Imperial base to steal plans for the Death Star stored there. They face off against stormtroopers and TIE fighters while attempting to transmit the plans to Rebel ships orbiting above. Ultimately, their efforts are successful but at a great cost ? all members of the team perish in the conflict.

In the end, rebel leaders Princess Leia and General Antoc Merrick are seen receiving the plans on board their ship above Scarif. As a result of obtaining these plans, the rebels are able to destroy the Death Star during the Battle of Yavin in “Star Wars: Episode IV ? A New Hope”.

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” provides a thrilling addition to the Star Wars franchise with its intense action sequences, engaging storyline, and compelling characters. It is a must-watch for not only die-hard fans but also for those new to the series.




Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, a film directed by Gareth Edwards, is a prequel that takes place right before the events of the original 1977 Star Wars movie. The story follows Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), a young woman who is recruited by the Rebel Alliance to find her estranged father, Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen), who has been forced by the Empire to design a superweapon called the Death Star.

The film is an outstanding addition to the Star Wars saga and provides insight into previously unexplored aspects of the universe. The movie is not only visually stunning but also delivers an emotional depth that surpasses many other entries in the franchise.

One of Rogue One’s most notable accomplishments is its depiction of war as something gritty, raw and realistic. Unlike previous entries in the series, Rogue One portrays battles as complex and chaotic, giving audiences a sense of what it would really be like to fight in a galactic conflict. This approach makes for some truly remarkable sequences and adds extra weight to Jyn’s mission.

The cast of Rogue One is superb; each actor brings their unique flair to their respective roles. Felicity Jones delivers an emotionally grounded performance as Jyn Erso. Her character arc is both compelling and moving as she transforms from being disillusioned with both sides in this conflict into becoming one of the Rebellion’s greatest heroes.

Diego Luna plays Captain Cassian Andor brilliantly, bringing a level of complexity to his character that was absent from many previous Star Wars films. It’s refreshing to see such richness given not just to one lead character but throughout much of the supporting cast.

Ben Mendelsohn shines as Director Orson Krennic, a cunning Imperial officer tasked with overseeing production on the Death Star. He brings a level of malevolence and complexity to the character that we haven’t seen in a Star Wars villain since Darth Vader.

The special effects and attention to detail are top-notch, with the use of practical effects bringing a much-needed sense of realism to the universe. The climactic battle scene on Scarif is one of the most visually stunning sequences in any Star Wars film, with X-wing starfighters and TIE fighters clashing in an epic battle that has audiences on the edge of their seats.

Overall, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is a fantastic addition to the Star Wars franchise. It brings something new and fresh while still staying true to what makes this series so beloved. If you’re a fan of action-packed science-fiction films or just love great storytelling, then Rogue One is a must-see movie.

As a child, I was moved by the movie “The Bad News Bears Go to Japan” where Japanese professional baseball players and American actors performed in front of a large audience. This made me fall in love with the movie. This blog is my review of the movie that I actually saw. Please use it as a reference when renting movies.

For a long time, in between housework,
I would go to the movie theater to watch films and then write reviews of the movies in a diary which I stored away in a closet.
When I showed these reviews to Azesan, he suggested turning them into a website.
I am grateful for this wonderful opportunity. I may be nearing the end of my life, but if reading my reviews can move the hearts of younger people,
I think that would be wonderful.
It may even become a catalyst for various realizations and changes in their lives moving forward.
