Goofs

As the rebels are setting charges on Scarif, they twist them to, presumably, arm them. The second or third charge never gets twisted. However, activating one may be all that is needed to detonate all of them, as they may well be linked. See more »

Great way to start off the star wars spin off movies
25 May 2018 | by nicolasbarhamSee all my reviews

I have watched this movie 2 times already and can say that I really enjoyed it. This movie takes a little time to get going, but once it gets going boy does it impress. The second half of this movie was brilliant and was on the edge of my seat to the very end. I respect Gareth Edwards for some of the choices made in the end of the movie which mainly landed. One of the bigger issues with this movie is the pacing of the movie as I have said that the first half of this movie is very slow but eventually gets going and thats why really I really it up to and 8/10 for me. So I would definitely recommend it, and check it out immediately.
