Many say that this is just a placeholder until Star Wars Episode VIII comes out later in 2017. If so, I found it quite worthy of the Star Wars label.
Exciting story line, typically well developed story lines and excellent battle scenes.
The music, for the first time, is not by John Williams. Rather, Michael Giacchino takes over and does a fine job maintaining the feel of Williams' music and supporting the action.
I had to click on the spoiler box because I did have one minor complaint - the beginning lacked the regular explanatory crawl. I hardly ever write reviews for movies with more than 200 reviewers, and this one has more than 800 at the moment. But since I have two major points to make, and since so many around, including some experienced reviewers, (not to say professional ones) complain about the predictability of the plot - hey that's a prequel, it has to be predictable, because we all already know how it ends. The room for surprising plot twists is almost non existent. The movie must aim for something different and it does. It carries further the exploration of good and evil, sometimes a bit superficially some times with surprising depth. But that's what comics is all about, especially a sci-fi comics - it explores the nature of people and the choices they make when finding themselves in hypothetical fictional situations, that test their moral core. The good ones do it with more depth than one may realize, as the story itself often seems simplistic. This one has some extra depth to it as it also explores the nature of Hope, what it does to people and how it can drive them with surprising and unexpected force.
