New Star Wars Movie Comes to Theaters
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” was one of the most highly anticipated films to come out in the last year. As with every Star Wars film, the beauty and care of each miniscule detail make up the vast amount of work put into each of them.
The film follows Jyn Erso, daughter of imperial scientist Galen Erso. Galen played a pivotal role in the creation of the Death Star, a so-called “planet destroyer.” Jyn was recruited by a group of rebels to learn more about it and to later get the plans for the Death Star. Watching the film a total of three times, the film seemed to grow on me each time I watched it.
Most of the characters are very thought provoking and well developed, but some left me wondering why the production crew did not do more with them. For example, one problem that I found with the movie was the development of the main character, Jyn Erso. She seems like a really dry character, and has little to no backstory with her father, Galen. It is very hard to feel sentimental of a character’s feelings if there is no scene to show the true love between a daughter and a father.
Another character that the film seemed to gloss over was Saw Gerrera, the rebel turned extremist. The character and costume was very well designed and Forest Whitaker seemed to fit the part. In my eyes, they did not do a lot with this character. One of the most glaring issues that I found was the use of Computer-Generated Imagery, CGI, for some of the main characters. The character Grand Moff Tarkin was fully CGI. They chose CGI over a real actor due to the original actor, Peter Cushing, passing away in 1994. The CGI is very realistic, but if you look close enough, you get a feeling that something is quite not right. I understand that it would be impossible to recast such an iconic character, but the CGI did not feel realistic enough for my standards.
Overall, the story is extremely in depth, and the action sequences are very well performed and riveting. Watching this movie, I felt like rooting for the Rogue One squad in their endeavors. The most comedy-centered characters in this movie is the droid K-2SO, voiced by Alan Tudyk. His lines were very comical towards Jyn, and most of the people in the theater laughed out loud at his jokes. This movie is one of the best movies that I have seen all year, and will be generally respected by most Star Wars fans.
