Before the movie even starts, people might think they are confused on where this movie lies in the whole series. This movie is a prequel to Force Awakens (7), but doesn't follow the Force Awakens story line. This movie is more about the Death Star. Who built it, why, and the way to destroy it. Ok now that's out of the way.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is a mix of a Summer Blockbuster that went right, with the goodness of an original movie that happens to be in a series. I know that's a mouthful, but it fits. The movie has the right amount of action, story, romance/love interest flirting, and comic relief that a summertime blockbuster has. This movie carries its own story along even though its in line of the Star Wars series. Yes, I understand it can't really be original because Star Wars exists, but if you were to watch this movie with no Star Wars knowledge, you will still like the movie.
Rogue One does bring back characters that you loved from the original Star Wars that will cause the audience in the theater to clap and cheer. This movie just leads you on to watch more, weather its another movie that they will make, or even re-watching the original Star Wars. This movie will make you do things you thought you didn't need to do again.
Sadly there was no end credit scene in this movie. So don't waste your time waiting around.

What would I have changed? (Spoilers)
There's not much to change here, it's a really good film. It had the right amount of action and story. Only issue is EVERYONE DIES. Everyone you want to live happens to die in this movie, which kinda brings the ending down on a sad note.
