Rogue 1 is the real prequel that bridges the gap between Episode 3 and 4. It takes place leading up to the days of the first movie produced in 1979. I must tell you that I am a bit of a geek and love these movies and that this is one of the best in the series in a long time.
I saw this movie in IMax 3D and it did not disappoint although I am sure it looks equally great in pure digital format on a large screen. I will not tell you what happens in the movie as part of the fun of the movie is guessing how this ties up to Episode 4 and who you might see along the way.
What really worked for me is that the movie holds true to the real story and that I felt like the costumes and seriousness and mild humor really reflected the same excitement as the original Star Wars movie.
See this movie this holiday season! I give it a perfect 5 erections!!!
