For those of you who don’t yet know, I’m a massive sci-fi nerd and genres like Star Wars/Star Trek/Stargate are my happy place.

‘Rogue One’ is basically episode 3.5 (or III ½ I  ). Set immediately preceding episode IV A New Hope, it’s all about the Rebellion’s pursuit of the schematics for the Death Star.

I liked Rogue One, but I didn’t love it (my husband Marc did). Lots of new characters were introduced and I didn’t feel a lot of connection with them.

It was an exciting ‘cinema watch’ and the battle scenes and special effects were VERY impressive and reason enough to pay money to see it on the big screen. Some of the acting is great, a lot is ho-hum.

Nevertheless, it’s still a very respectable addition to the franchise…and we will no doubt buy a copy on DVD when it comes out.
