He made one of the best two Star Wars films to date (IMHO) and the best Star Wars series. This is going to be dope, and I'm going off of GP

This is one of the most visually stunning movies I've seen all year. Shout out to Oren Soffer, who was handpicked by Greig Fraser (he was busy with Dune Part Two but got credit for all the pre-production work), for making a beautiful-looking film.

For an $80 million dollar film, this is how you use CGI. to enhance and world-build on top of existing locations while keeping it to a minimum.

The action is excellent. I've seen it twice now, and I'd be damn if I wondered how this got a PG-13.

Now with all that said. The story is very underwhelming in its execution. It reminded me of Oblivion in that it's a mash-up of all the familiar sci-fi stories you've seen a million times before. I called almost every story beat before it happened. That's just how these things go. It's way better than Oblivion.

Yet, it still pulled me in with how the characters are written and how good the actors are.

I've seen it twice and I'll probably see it again as it's rare to get a big sci-fi action movie this well-made and acted that's not setting up a shared universe or ongoing franchise.

Let's start putting John David Washington in more things, please.

Gareth Edwards is the king of massive landscape destruction with beautiful images.

Thought it was true of Godzilla, thought it was low-key true of Rogue One (liked it the most of his films but liked it less than others), and think it's true here.

Blown away by how the movie looks on this budget. Didn't *really* get emotionally invested, especially because Edwards resorts to shameless tearjerking over developing character, generally. So I left thinking, "This is a solid 3 out of 5."

But all three stars go to the visuals. Way better looking than any of the superhero movies of late that had 3 times this movie's budget.

I knew there would be problems after that opening sequence, and the sloppy script never righted itself

most scenes and characters existed only to move along the next plot point, and were hollow otherwise

forgivable if the characterization was better -- unfortunately the characters spent most of their time telling us what they felt, instead of writing interesting dialogue to show it

its as if Edwards had a bunch of great visual ideas but didn't know how to tie them together

you'd really think AI humanoids could aim better, btw

It feels like it was made from an outline of good ideas that were never fully fleshed out.

I know this wasn't a perfect movie. Very loose with the story. But it looked and sounded gorgeous so as far as a movie watching experience it's pretty upper-tier. This really confirmed that.
