No only did it have to contend with matching up to the cultural phenomenon of the original trilogy, but also with the acclaim of last year’s The Force Awakens which created whole new bunch of young Star Wars fans. Luckily Rogue One does something The Force Awakens was too scared to — it ventures into new territory and traverses into a bold and dark new direction while still delivering the massive scale and action adventure mood. It’s huge, it’s action packed and it’s solid entertainment.
