Top 10 Reasons Why Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is Overrated

The Top Ten

1 The plot is bad

Yeah, it's a stupid plot. The only reason this movie exists is to explain why the Death Star has a flaw...yeah we didn't need this movie. - DCfnaf

The plot is basically: bad guys have taken over and the heros need to stop them - girlcool

It's not a bad plot. Not the best, but it's certainly not bad. - LordDovahkiin

I made a list and post about rogue one @girlcool - DCfnaf

2 The editing was messy

The film was a mess. It was basically: boring scene, action scene, boring scene, action scene - girlcool

Um...sort of, but not really - DCfnaf

Nope, Not At All - VideoGamefan5

3 The film is too serious

I personally liked the movie, but I also agree that it's overrated. However, it's supposed to be serious.

"Too serious." It's a Star Wars movie! They are SUPPOSED to be serious. - LordDovahkiin

Okay, so why did you watch it? - DCfnaf

So? , Have You Seen action Films? - VideoGamefan5

4 The ending is depressing

Spoilers: Yes all the heroes get killed but if you watched Episode 4 before this you would understand why. I expected them to die because none of them are in the original trilogy. - Martinglez

It's not depressing at all! The characters are so uninteresting, bland, and tasteless that you don't give a crap when they die. - DCfnaf

The heros get killed. Too sad. - girlcool

GirlCool, I'm Guessing You're 6 Years Old, You Can't Take Seriousness In Zootopia Or Rogue One? , Well Someone Reminds Me Of Disney1994... - VideoGamefan5

5 Jyn is a boring protagonist

Jen, Judy, And Dory Are All BETTER Protagonists Than Norm - VideoGamefan5

Yeah, she is - DCfnaf

6 The male heroes are bland

Nah, A Boring Reason - VideoGamefan5

That is 100% true. - DCfnaf

I liked Baze Malbus and Chirrut Imwe. - LordDovahkiin

7 Most of the villains aren't interesting

That is also true. Darth Vader was the only villain I cared about, and he was barely in it. - DCfnaf

They Are Actually - VideoGamefan5

8 Not enough Darth Vader

Darth Vader was so prominent in the marketing that I was surprised that he was barely in the film. - girlcool

Wish he appeared more, but oh well. - DCfnaf


9 The storm troopers being easily defeated

In Norm Of The North The Animation is Poor And Cheap, Yet You Like It - VideoGamefan5

Yes. They still can't shoot. - DCfnaf

10 No Mark Hamill

To be fair, he doesn't have to show up in all these movies, and he had no purpose in this story. - Mrveteran

He has no place in this movie though, - DCfnaf

The Contenders

11 The filming was bad

It looks like the people who did the Hunger Games movies did this movie, though that's not what I remember in the credits.
It looked like they had Parkinsons disease when filming it.

Is that a new thing for Star Wars, and are all the upcoming Star Wars movies gonna be like that?

12 Too predictable

Bet a lot of you didn't expect the ending. Because Disney movies are almost never like that. - LordDovahkiin
