Trama

SUMMARY:
In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

Critica

REVIEW:
There's a new hope for the "Star Wars" franchise. Lucasfilm's first standalone film in the biggest sci-fi saga in our galaxy, director Gareth Edwards' "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" turns out to be just that. It stands alone as the best "Star Wars" entry since 1980's "The Empire Strikes Back."
Yes, it's that good.
All fans know entering the theater is that the movie opening Friday chronicles the spies who stole the plans to the Empire's dreaded weapon, the Death Star — their existence having been mentioned only in a sentence of the opening crawl of the 1977 original "Star Wars." How they managed such a feat has never been revealed — until now.
At the center of "Rogue One" is Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), who is drifting through the underbelly of the galaxy under an assumed name to hide her parentage. Her father, Galen (Mads Mikkelsen), is a scientist conscripted by an Imperial officer, played by Ben Mendelsohn with a sense of serrated menace, forced to finish building the planet-destroying battle-station.
Years after being separated from him as a child, Jyn is pulled into the orbit of the rebellion, that same band of freedom fighters that will soon welcome a certain farmboy from Tatooine. A defecting Imperial pilot (Riz Ahmed) turns up with a message from Galen revealing a defect in the Death Star and that secret plans exist to exploit it. Unfortunately for rebel intelligence leader Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), the pilot has been captured by revolutionary Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker), a veteran of the Disney cartoon series, "Clone Wars," in a stroke of corporate synergy. Jyn, Saw's former ward, provides the only chance to retrieve the message. That setup begins a cinematic adventure that moves at the speed of hyper-drive, with enough Easter eggs to encourage "Star Wars" fans to speak in hyperbole. The action scenes are exhilarating — including a battle on the planet Scarif, idyllic enough to look like it was torn from a Club Med pamphlet, which takes up the entire third act and pays homage to classic war movies like "The Guns of Navarone."
Edwards assembled a worthy and diverse cast for his on-screen mission. Jones, herself a "Star Wars" fan since childhood, treats the genre melodrama with as much passion as she delivered for her Oscar-nominated turn in "The Theory of Everything." Martial arts superstar Donnie Yen steals every scene he's in as the blind monk who may or may not be tapped into the Force. As reprogrammed Imperial killer robot K-2S0, Alan Tudyk uses performance capture to deliver just the droid we've been looking for, tossing out both one-liners and grenades.
Despite that needed humor, "Rogue One" is the darkest installment in the franchise's history. Younger children may struggle with the violent climax.
There are also a few minor missteps on this hero's journey. The resolution is overly complicated. A familiar nefarious face returns 22 years after the original actor's death, but the obvious CGI to make that posthumous cameo happen does feel artificial.
But then the scenes with Darth Vader, voiced again by James Earl Jones, will take moviegoers' breaths away.
There are a competent band of rebels behind the camera, too. Cinematographer Greig Fraser ("Zero Dark Thirty") gives the film a nostalgic sheen with 70s era camera lenses. Tasked with taking the baton from the legendary John Williams, composer Michael Giacchino manages a score that is sufficiently reverential, but also stands on its own. There are enough strains of the recognizable "Star Wars" music to tie it in to the right galaxy, even if it is jarring to hear a different fanfare playing over the film's opening.
And that's a balance, between originality and familiarity, at which Edwards largely succeeds from the opening frame to the closing credits. With its tendrils tying into the franchise's canon so tightly, it makes "Rogue One" makes George Lucas' Prequel Trilogy look that much worse in comparison.
That certainly makes this prequel worth spying.
