Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Film / 8.00pm / Sky Cin­ema Pre­miere

TV Times - - Friday -

Tak­ing its premise from a de­tail men­tioned in the orig­i­nal Star Wars, this first stand-alone movie in the uni­verse cre­ated by George Lu­cas is a thrilling ad­ven­ture peo­pled with great char­ac­ters, none more so than the hero­ine Jyn, played with feisty in­ten­sity by Felic­ity Jones. She’s a lone wolf co­erced into lead­ing a team to steal the plans for the Death Star, with a bit of help from Diego Luna and miserable an­droid K-2SO, voiced su­perbly by Alan Tudyk. Chief vil­lain is smarmy Ben Men­del­sohn, tak­ing or­ders from an un­set­tling CGI ver­sion of Peter Cush­ing in this clas­sic ‘gang on a sui­cide mis­sion’ tem­plate, done with such verve and com­mit­ment that you will be trans­ported right there with our he­roes.

Felic­ity Jones is in a galaxy far, far away
