This breakaway Star Wars movie – set some time just before the first film – is a punchy standalone action tale about a spunky resistance group within the Rebel Alliance. This ragtag band of fighters, led by Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones, a complicated, not always endearing heroine, refreshingly), come together to lead an attack on the Empire – whose most visible military stooge is Orson Krennic, played with quiet menace and oily ambition by Ben Mendelsohn. Rated PG-13. Read the full review here.
