If your sick of the fake Star Wars that is, “The Force Awakens” and “The Last Jedi” this is the movie for you.
If the Empire had a new 'Personality removal beam' and Solo was hit by it, then this movie would make sense. Han was portrayed flat, uninspired and boring. They should have titled the movie as 'Lando'. This character and Chewy were deliverd in a creative way and if one was the lead in the movie it would have been better ( especially Lando ). Don't expect any real character develpement with Solo, There are exciting special effects and action sequences . The movie seems to be targeting the 8 to 12 year old age group. ( or desparate Star Wars fans )
I have to say, I have been trying to stay with all the Wars prequels and found it increasingly difficult to enjoy. This movie has been the exception. I should have known Ron Howard directed it! It is unfortunate that he wasn’t the Director of all the other incarnations.
... I mean, this is SO thin and a back story that reeeeeally didn't need to be told did it? Isn't it OK if we fans don't KNOW EVERY GODDAMN THING in the SW universe? Who's gonna get a full feature film back story next Watto!? Ooooh.. I have a great title: Watto Turns Fifty. Get it?
I love Star Wars personally. I think that the originals are the better ones and that they could have done a better job with The Last Jedi, but they made a comeback with Solo. A lot of people wanted the back story of Han Solo and they made that wish come true. Thanks!
After the horrendous The Last Jedi, I had totally given up on Star Wars. I was expecting this to be more of the same but after watching it, it wasn’t too bad. It’s not as good as Rogue One but it’s definitely better than Last Jedi by a large margin. It’s too bad the political views of the people in charge is getting in the way of making great entertainment without agendas and propaganda.
This was definitely refreshing, considering Disney’s blunder in The Last Jedi.
I thought the movie was pretty fun. I think my only problem is that since it’s not Harrison Ford, it kind of takes me out. Alden Ehrenreich did bring this charm to the character though. L3 was also kind of annoying, but I thought the movie was overall enjoyable.
Wait until it only costs a dollar or a sap friend pays for it.
Solo moves in the vein of the classic Lucas Star Wars movies. Exciting, intriguing, mysterious and cinematically brilliant. The star studded acting team delivers believability in each character. Not many space or Star creatures but hey 🤷🏾♀️ Ron Howard does not disappoint his direction of the film.
Boring. Too slow and predictable.
This is a great movie… But, one question, Why doesn’t this movie coming 4K digital?
Awesome addition to the star wars storyline.
You could have branded this as a generic teen oriented sci fi flick, removed Star Wars from the name and hardly anyone would notice. The writing and acting are on par with some dumpy B movie like Twilight that never inspires you to care at all for any character you see on screen. This is the last time I give any of my money to Lucasfilm. I would have been disappointed to see this rot for free :(
Great movie! Enjoyed very much!
Han was great!
The main character is a goof and unlikable - and not much like the Han Solo of later years. The writing is poor - unoriginal lines, no depth. The other actors did what they could with what they were given but it was hard to watch the actor playing Han. There was little plot - it seems like a vehicle to deliver lines that are known from movies set in time yet to come. Save your 2 hours.
What the hell? In this day and age Apple doesn’t release Solo in 4K very upset with that. Not sure it’s Disney or ITunes but that sucks.
I can’t wait for additions to this franchise. Our whole family loved it and we’ve watched it many time. An instant adventure classic. Awesome!
Solo is going to be a Star Wars cult favourite. If you don’t love it now, you will appreciate it one day. It’s a hell of a ride and a throw back/return to the adventure we love. It’s not perfect but I can’t complain because I smiled the entire time I watched it.
Great movie, really explains a lot from the original Star Wars about solo as a character. I’d highly recommend and would watch again
Watched it and couldn't even remember what the story was about 5min after the film ended. The story is so boring, you don't care what happens, the characters have no profile and we know anyhow how it ends from episode 4. Throwing 16tons of CGI at it does not make a good movie. Zero stars!
Shows how easily people are impressed these days... and when did Calrissian become so camp?
I was actually looking forward to this one after the excellent Rogue One. However everything was off. The robot character was annoying rather than funny, the story weak and the Han Solo character went from loveable rogue in the main films to annoying and cocky in this one. Better writing is an absolute necessity if they want to keep Star Wars going.
That’s it for me and the Star Wars franchise. I watched this movie with the hope that it might have been a little better than the last Star Wars movie (which was the worst Star Wars film of all time), but this was almost as bad. Way to go Disney, thanks for killing a once fantastic movie franchise.
Great movie. Sit back and enjoy the ride.
Was actually a 3 1/2! Not too bad a few sketchy bits but overall a good look into how it all began for Han and Chewy! Rest of the characters a bit wishy washy though! Amazing CGI! Worth a look for SW fans!
I didn’t have any issues with the story and thought the ending was great
LOVED IT!!!! Want a sequel
This movie was awful, Nothing makes sense and Han just walks around while people tell him what to do. He does nothing cool in this movie and is dumb as a box of rocks. My theatre was so bored and people were laughing, not with the film but at the expensense of the quality, which was non existant anyway so your not misssing anything.
Heart-breakingly bad in almost every way but Chewbacca was very very cool.
The modern ‘style’ of Star Wars is dispatched finally with a style and story of its own. Building a trove of new characters married with old legacy personalities, as told through the wonderful lense of Ron Howard. SOLO is a return to the adventure, wonder and fantasy of the original films, with some of the best design, costumes and locations since EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. An absolute must-see Star Wars film, with exciting new characters and a story that is truely original, exciting with the customary twists and turns you expect from a Star Wars adventure.
A fantastic Star Wars story, watch and love it! Don’t jump in with the haters that haven’t even watched it, great characters, traditional plot, honours the space western origins of Star Wars. I’m looking forward to the sequels.
If you love the Millennium Falcon, and Chewbacca, you’ll enjoy this movie. Otherwise go watch Infinity War and don’t complain.
