Here, we just meet people all the time, whenever the committee in charge of the film feel like it, so it’s a jumble. And though the threads do intertwine more tightly to bring us to a climax on one planet, it still results in one of those horrible intercutty all-at-once climaxes that became a problem around RETURN OF THE JEDI.

The modest but real charm of The Force Awakens lay in the expressions of surprise and delight between the actors (John Boyega and Oscar Isaac, especially)—the same rascally attitude conjured up long ago/far away by Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher. Rogue One is wholly po-faced and comes off as a slog, right up to that CGI-drenched would-be grace note that ironically only serves to remind us of the humanity absent from this act of brand extension.
