Rogue One Review
THE PURPOSE OF THIS REVIEW IS SOLELY FOR PARENTAL AWARENESS! THEREFORE,
WARNING: THIS REVIEW CARRIES A CRITICAL SPOILER!
Hello Parents! There is probably not a kid on the planet that doesn’t want to see this Star Wars installment. But there is something important you need to be ready to deal with. I will not describe the story for you, as too many other people have already done that. This is simply so parents know what to expect.
There is no real profanity, nor sexuality. But it earns it’s PG-13 rating for this:
Violence! Lots of it! If it wasn’t blaster type fire that leaves a little smoking hole, there would be gore all over the place. But there’s not. This is a WAR story! Therefore, expect a lot of explosions and blaster fire. THAT IS NOT THE CRITICAL SPOILER!
At the end, all the good guys die. That’s right. Die. This is a suicide mission. None of the heroes you will root for will survive. At all. Do yourself a favor and . . .
GET THE KIDS READY FOR THAT.
It is an excellent adult movie. Probably as good or better than “Empire,” if you can believe it. It is highly recommended for everyone who has been waiting for the real Stars Wars story telling and excellent dialogue. The plot intricacies will be beyond many young one’s abilities to follow. The opening scenes are from various places in the galaxy and seem only tangentially connected, but all of them come home at the end. Adults will love this movie.
Kids will have a tough time with it.
My job’s done here. Out.
