Rogue One, a Star Wars story featuring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, and many others, is the prequel to the original Star Wars movies. “The Rebel Alliance makes a risky move to steal the plans for the Death Star, setting up the epic saga to follow,” is the summary for this Gareth Edwards directed film.
Starting the movie with an emotional death is just how they began this story, killing the young protagonist's mother. Ripping the main character, Jyn Erso away from her parents at a very young age later made this character become a very strong, independent, and vengeful person. When Jyn later finds out that her father is in fact alive, and has the plans to destroying the most deadly weapon in the galaxy (the Death Star) she must join forces with the Rebel Alliance to find them. This 2 hour and 13 minute film keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time, and ends (quite literally) with a bang.
