"Sadly under-rated"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

To be fair, Solo isn't Rogue One. That's a tough act to follow for the second stand alone Star Wars film. But it also isn't The Last Jedi, and I get a feeling that one of the reasons Solo became the second worst performing Star Wars film at the booking office (beating only the deservedly panned Clone Wars animated film) was a fan backlash against TLJ. That and the fact that apparently there's a thing called fan fatigue and five months between Star Wars films was not enough for people to get hyped up again. (I call BS on that, I could easily handle a new Star Wars movie every six-eight weeks for the next 40 or 50 years I reckon, but that's what they're saying – whoever ‘they’ are.) So put aside what the naysayers say. (Apparently a naysayer isn't just a horse. Say it to yourself. Yes, you're allowed to smile.) This is a great film. Sure, the start drags a bit but you eventually get over that. Young Han is not Original Han, although there are a couple of moments where you can almost see him in there. But he's still a pretty good Han nonetheless, and Young Lando may well have out-Landoed Original Lando with a stellar performance. The first ‘woke’ bot in the Star Wars universe, Lando's non-human semi-love interest L3–37, was the worst part of the film for me but seeing Chewie and Han in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon for the first time still brings a lump to my throat on the seventh viewing (mind you, Han's death in TFA is still bringing tears after more than ten viewings so maybe I'm just soppy). This is a great addition to the Star Wars universe and if you call yourself a fan, you owe it to yourself to watch it. It's not Rogue One, it's not Empire Strikes Back, but it is almost Star Wars: the Western and it's worth seeing.

"A great stand alone story..."

And yet it manages to fill in some of the back story questions quite well. If you're a die hard Star Wars fan, you'll possibly find something to pick at, but for the average Star wars fan, it's a thoroughly entertaining movie.

Great movie with a awesome group of actors, makes it wide open for more movies to follow this story.

Critic Reviews For Solo: A Star Wars Story

  • “Luckily, just as tempers were starting to flare, Solo: A Star Wars Story has arrived to save the day.” – Anthony Lane , New Yorker
  • “Of all the Star Wars-themed movies, this one is the closest to a Saturday afternoon serial/western. Don't expect more than that.” – Peter Rainer , Christian Science Monitor
  • “Solo is at its best when it's uncoupled from all that heavy lifting, just crammed in a cockpit with its likeable cast and shooting for the stars.” – Philip De Semlyen, Time Out
  • “At its best, Solo captures the origins of that unique mix of characteristics, portraying the young Han Solo as a man trying to find his voice and his identity and having to fit himself into the mold of outlaw smuggler.” – James Kendrick , Q Network Film Desk
