Watching Vadar hunt down Jedis during the purge would be fantastic.
In the EU Solo trilogy, the Kessel run was made escaping the empire. It also ended with Han sitting down and introducing himself to Luke and Obi Wan.

I legit thought they found an actress that looked just like her. I didn't even notice the CGI.

They had an actress, Ingvild Deila, who was involved, but whatever voodoo they did during filming looked strange on the big screen.

They could probably have held a Leia audition at any of the Cons and gotten not only a Leia look alike but one that could act as well.

I'd be interested if there were people out there who hadn't seen the original Leia and only saw her in this movie. Would they think she looked CGI?

I think everyone needs to chill out with the literal 5 second movie part that ruined the movie for them.

I don't feel it ruined the movie for me. I just feel they could have done way better with the cgi there.

The work they did for Tarkin was phenomenal.

Finally! Ive been waiting to see a "modern" Vader, and he lived up to every expectation, with the exception (as mentioned) of James Earl Jones voice over, something just didnt sound right there. But the last 10min of the movie are worth the ticket price alone

I also agree Leias face over cgi was horrible

I need to see the movie again because I dont know how you guys are complaining about her so bad

Also, Jones is old. His voice isnt what it used to be. They could have easily mixed it in the edit room to speed it up a bit and take it back to how it was, but I liked that they let his voice remain, in all its glory....old or not.

Yep, he did after watching it again, shortly after killing the rebel who he had on the ceiling.

And yes, I fully agree. That hallway Vader scene was basically the best minute of the movie ever. Not to take away from the movie, but when that red saber lights up, and you see Vader standing there, with the Imperial March theme going...

I was a child again.

Even though its technically poorly choreographed compared to the prequel saber fights, and you can see that its really not up to snuff in terms of skill for what a mythical Jedi and Sith should be capable of. The fight between Luke and Vader in ROTJ at the end, is one of my favorite bits of film ever. In fact, I think I'm going to watch it again, right now.

Vader fight was a good tie in to the originals.

To use a Star Trek phrase, the rebels had a lot of "red shirts" in this movie. That's a refreshing change from "A-Team" type violence.

Sad some of them are only one and done.

I think i need to see the movie again. It was different than what I had expected, and I wasn't very impressed. It didn't quite have the star wars feel for me.

Just watched last night.... Loved it...

Not Empire good, but definitely up there. Thankfully they offed everybody in the movie. Feels horrible to say, but it was the best way to do it.

That scene with Vader at the end was so bad ass... I can't stop watching the link @Mook added!

Did anyone else have problem with every time you saw her Dad you just thought of the guy from the Casino Royale James Bond movie? It's all I thought about everytime he was on screen.

I found the movie entertaining but don't have a strong desire to see it again. Tarkin had way too big of a role in the movie to be completely CGI. It was a huge distraction for me. The CGI is probably some of the best I've seen on screen as a human replacement character, but I wouldn't be offended if they cast a dude who looked 80% similar to the original actor.

I liked how this movie ended right where New Hope starts. That was fantastic to lead this up to the opening scene of 4. Vader's assault was perfect, and some of the views we see of X-Wings and other dogfighters were angles of battle never before depicted in a Star Wars film. This was like a Star Wars war movie.

Also, I wish Jyn had more of her backstory told. They just kind of throw her out there. I'd take less of the war stuff and learn more about her convictions as a rebel (in the literal sense and not as part of the Alliance). Her and Cassian both seem like they're just going through the motions. A little more depth here would have been nice.

K-2SO was hilarious. Him and Chirrut/Baze were much needed comic relief because the main characters didn't have one scrape of levity. Mendelsohn as Krennic was and I also like Ben Daniels from House of Cards as whoever he was playing.

It was appropriate that everyone died. Bleak, for sure, but fitting for the timeline in the Star Wars universe and importance of telling this story. It's a very different Star Wars movie.
