Hassan Mansoori’s review published on Letterboxd:
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is a very good film and I enjoyed it a lot, but it definitely has some flaws.
The film starts with introducing the new characters, and that's my biggest problem with this movie. The new characters weren't interesting at all unlike The Force Awakens, so during the first and second act I felt like I'm not so interested in the action scenes wich were visually great to be honest. But there some emotional scenes that changed everything wich leads me to the third act wich in my opinion saves the movie. The action scenes were fantastic and exciting because this time I felt that I care about the characters. The last twenty minutes have many great and memorable moments, and I loved how they handled the characters at the end. The movie honestly ends in the best possible way and now I feel like I want to rewatch the original trilogy.
Overall I think Rogue One is a very good movie that deserves to be watched and it might be better when I watch it again.
