Well the first out trilogy non-Skywalker focused Star Wars film is out for mass consumption. The second film in the Disney Star Wars series and it does not disappoint. The first almost, but not entirely standalone Star Wars film.
I have seen it twice. Once as an eager fan devoted to the series and a second time without the raging fan boy activated.
After two viewings, I have to say it was damn bit of a good time.
Alright for those few outside the know, Rouge One is the story of how the Rebel Alliance attains the schematics for the Death Star. This is accomplished by one Jyn Erso, the daughter of a scientist who helped create the super cool planet destroying laser. Jyn along with a few other fellas get swept up in the plans of the Rebellion, try to avoid the Empire and eventually lead a mission to steal the Death Star plans. This is equal part heist film and Dirty ½ Dozen in the Star Wars universe pre- Episode IV.
It could also be called three items Ian loves all in one movie!
