Rogue One A Star Wars Story Movie Review

Went to The Cathay to catch Rogue One A Star Wars Story with a friend of mine whom I haven't see for quite awhile. Rogue One tells the stories before the events of Star Wars, hence you do not need to watch the previous Star Wars movies in order to understand this. Rogue One is a standalone movie.

In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

Rogue One is not the usual Star Wars movie, it is about fights and war.

Galen’s long-lost daughter Jyn Erso is on search for her father who is working for the Empire. She came across the Rebellion group whose mission is to destroy the planet-killing weapon: the Deathstar. She joins Captain Cassian Andor on a mission to locate her father and discover a secret holo-message from her father to the key of destroying the Death Star.

Donnie Yen played the role as a blind warrior Chirrut Îmwe.
We all know that Donnie Yen is famous for his martial-arts-fighting skills. You can expect some fanciful stunts from him. He is also a funny dude in this movie, I still remember some of his signature and funny lines.

"I'm one with the Force. The Force is with me."
This memorable phase has blessed him throughout, creating miracle.

"Are you kidding me? I'm blind."
Chirrut Îmwe was being captured by extremist Rebels, they put a cover over his head to cover his vision so that he don't know the way they are leading him to.

The action packed scene was great with all the fighting between human and robots.
To destroy the Deathstar, it comes with a heavy price to pay, a huge sacrifices of warriors. Lots of lives are lost in the war and this is why I hate war. The CGI grpahic and effect was brilliant too.

Rating: 3.5/5

We ended our outing with dinner at Coco Ichibanya.
