"If you're conscious and over 17, you probably have pretty clear expectations for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story: a flashy, well-made and not terribly intricate action movie featuring a young hero with a tragic and/or mysterious past, a multitude of Easter eggs for die-hard fans, and -- more than likely -- some sort of nefarious infrastructure project. Rogue One makes good on those expectations. The surprising thing is that this, the eighth film in the franchise, might be the most politically substantive yet." [editor's note: This review is making me want to see the film, after all, to see where she interpreted it right and where she missed it entirely - SAT] (12/16/16)
