‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ is a film precision-built to satisfy Star Wars fans: set immediately before the first movie (or the fourth, depending on your perspective), it details the efforts of a breakaway band of Rebel Alliance soldiers to steal the plans to the Empire’s new planet-busting weapon, Death Star. So will the film satisfy hardcore nerds – or, like the notoriously off-putting ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’, is it trying just a little too hard to please? It's mostly the former, reckons our resident Star Wars expert Tom Huddleston.
