'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' Movie Review

The great mystery “Rogue One” – the great reward of what people like I’ve met for the disclosure to solve the puzzle congratulate – is where it fits into the rest of the cycle of “Star Wars”. There are scattered clues from the beginning, and later appearances of well-known characters that cause laugh recognition fans. The last setting shows us exactly where we are and why we should have looked after everything we just saw.

That is enough – the fractures of the rebel alliance and power struggles in the imperial ranks accelerate our impulses and our emotions are involved – is the big question, but not really a problem. Millions of people visit this rather bad film (director Gareth Edwards after a surprising scenario hacker Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy) and be convinced that it is absolutely delicious. It is much easier to obey than to resist. The spoiler sent warning by the Disney empire has asked journalists to “stay our partner on this trip” and the challenge is unthinkable, even though “partner” is synonymous with “soft”.

However, the order does not ruin the good time that somebody “reveal spoilers and points of the detailed story” is itself a reference to limited throwing pleasure that reveals this movie, and a low self-esteem of its creator to the public. This is not always true, of course. The first trilogy of “Star Wars” had a fresh insurrection and energy, and learn the names of all the planets and galactic adventurers seemed generations of fans, as a new kind of fun.

Now, however, he begins to feel like heaviness, a school year in a course of study that has no useful application and that will never end. “Rogue One“, the name of the call of an imperial freighter captured by rebels, is the opposite of this ship. Masquerading as a heroic story of rebellion, his true spirit kingdom is down. As a fighter, Scarif planet, surrounded by an atmospheric shielding all-but-impenetrable, which is trapped within this world, are subject to their whims and laws. You can not escape because it is the desire to escape naturally that you are brought here in the first place.

Perhaps I am exaggerating. The cast is wonderful. Felicity Jones is a good addition to the tradition of the strong and fast heroines of Star Wars. She plays Jyn Erso, daughter of Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen), a scientist whose loyalties are somewhat ambiguous. No, everything is ambiguous Orson Krennic Ben Mendelsohn, wonderfully grin, the brave villain in impeccable white uniform with a cape flowing behind him when a ship’s podium is crossed.

The Jedi-ish idéistes Jyn Trends are first to be tested by a cynical Bogart-esque suspect. She suspects that the rebels and despises the empire, and complicated feelings about Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker), the militant extremists who treated them in the absence of his father. When a mission announces – I do not think I have too much to say, otherwise it is very dangerous, and requires a lot of inflatable planets and antenna control – Jyn a team of guerrillas attractive, diverse. There is a renegade imperial pilot (Riz Ahmed), a kind of hardened resistance (Diego Luna), a blind monk (Donnie Yen) and a berserk (Jiang Wen) beard. And, of course, a smart android, speaks in dry and sarcastic tone indispensable Alan Tudyk.

'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' Movie Review

All the pieces are, in other words, like Lego figures in a box. The problem is that the filmmakers are not really interesting to make with them to think of something bothered. A couple of 9 years would come in a screen without rainy afternoon with the best adventures, and probably a better dialogue. Frames and partial plans are treated with clumsy possibility, and questions that could link this film with great myth of Lucasfilm are not allowed to develop.

They are left to want more and less. There are too many signs, too many tactical and technical explanations, too many pseudo-political talk. At the same time, there is not enough dynamic company between Galen and Jyn, and not given enough emphasis on the ethical and strategic issues of rebellion. When can the purpose of the funds? What kind of sacrifice is necessary to the service of a just cause?

Folk art – “Star Wars” contained – has proven to be often able to explore these questions with clarity, power and also a little shadow. But “Rogue One” has no such ambitions, not to convince the public about nothing else but the persistent strength of the brand. Not so much preaches in the chorus as propaganda to the prisoners who tells us that we are free spirits and travel companions. The only force at work here is the power of habit.
