Rogue One

Every good book offers splinter stories.  The challenge is trying to be inventive while remaining true to the original.  And, Hollywood likes formulas.  Having said that, if you are willing to open your mind and think of this as an original or a stand alone, you will enjoy the ride.  It’s a combination of a wink, nod and effort.  Forrest Whittaker almost did a great job – at times he overplayed and others he underplayed.  The rest of the cast was good.  The fighting scenes were a bit too long for me making the story longer than it needed to be but overall, like other “shows” before it (ie battle star galactic, guardians of the galaxy (tv) etc.) it’s fun.  Yes date night, something for both of you!
