Definetely the worst of the new movies so far, but doesn’t sink to episode 1 or 2 levels of bad either.

Pros:
- Alden Ehrenreich (yes, really) and Donald Glover are great.
- Very competently put together action sequences, the train heist in particular.
- Beautiful cinematography (though at times too desaturated for my liking).
- Any moment between Chewie and Han, their first meeting in particular.
- A very good score (although it could’ve been more tense during some of the action sequences).
- Production design/locations.

Cons:
- Holy fuck, that L3 droid is annoying! (I’m not one of those whiny people who sees SJW politics in everything, but here, that assessment would be completely justified).
- Lack of character development for the Qi’ra and Beckett characters.
- Loses a lot of steam after the first act.
- Predictable in its third act, it has twists you see coming from five miles away.
- Some of Emilia Clarke’s line delivery is too forced.

Rating: 5.5/10

Wow. Really liked this movie. The look of it is very dark and kind of dirty but on the other side it's a lot of fun and I thought the stoey was pretty interesting and exciting. Can't wait to watch it at home in 4K.

For anyone still debating this, let me make it perfectly clear for you: Han shot first.

Growing up on the first three Star Wars films 4, 5, 6, I wanted to see Han Solo’s past and finally got a chance and it felt good to see Han Solo’s first reaction to the falcon and meeting chewy for the first time and them moments were heart warming for me.

I thought the cast were spot on, specially Alden that played Han Solo and I could see him in him perfectly and not forgetting donald with a super performance playing Lando.

Overall it wasn’t a bad film with lots of action, a good plot and it’s good to see a back story and looking forward to watching more upcoming in the Star Wars universe. It tops some of the recent Star Wars films by far but doesn’t over take rogue one out of the recent 4 for me.

A unnecessary, but yet funny and well-made adventure

First of all, it is not like other Star Wars movies. if you like the "Indiana Jones" like movies, with some mix of adventure, fun, and action, with little drama and romance parts you will be pleased to see the new/old Han Solo and his pack. :)

loading replies

While it's frequently visually stunning, it remains overall uninspired. Not a lot is wrong with Han Solo but not enough is right.

This is what Star Wars needs... decent ideas, decent acting, decent special effects. Tight, fun, surprising and so much better The Last Jedi :-) 8/10

They could of cut that kessel run scene in half because it really dragged for such a pivotal moment. Outside of that i really enjoyed it more than i thought i would, a fun adventure and Aiden felt like Han Solo. It has it's logic issues and i can't say this is the movie you should see first this weekend in cinema but do watch the film.

It's weird...but i would like to see more of this Solo one day but i doubt it's going to make enough.

It's not as bad as I thought it would be, after all the behind the scenes drama. However, the plot isn't something to write home about. It was top-notch VFX's (the train sequence is THE BEST in the whole movie), and some good action sequences here and there, but I couldn't care any less about the whole story. The main characters are totally underdeveloped by the end of the film, and those I could care about to know more, are dead. It this was a pilot for a TV series about Han Solo, then it's on the spot, because you can take your jolly time to fully flesh out and develop those characters on subsequent episodes. But this is one of the most expensive films ever made, a long and irrelevant side-story in a franchise that it's already in deep trouble since The Force Awakens. Suddenly issues that weren't relevant to the original trilogy (like the hyperfuel) are now the center piece for social commentary and some twisted political agenda that I don't care about. If you haven't seen it, you might as well skip it and wait for it on cable or something.

Exceeded all expectations, even after the big twist was spoiled for me. I genuinely loved it, and it delivered without even trying.

Lots of great actors for an enjoyable movie, totally uninspired but good.

Star Wars isn't really my cuppa tea, although I have watched most of them. I think it's fair to say that this film will be brilliant for true Star Wars fans. The story kept me interested even when I find Sci-Fi hard to follow. The acting was believable, and they certainly chose the right actor for Han Solo. Nice to see Wookie hasn't aged at all since the '70s as well.
All in all, a great film.

This movie has been a huge surprise after all the controversy it had. The characters were incredibly well writen by the Kasdans and the humor was just on point. The plot, despite the fact that it was a bit predictable, is very consistent.

On the other hand, Alden actually nailed the performance. Many gestures and expressions feel as something Harrison Ford's Han Solo would do.

The best part of the movie is without any doubt the worldbuilding and the countless references to both The Clone Wars series and other Star Wars movies. And well, that little cameo at the end... BREATHTAKING

I think this is the worst Star Wars film, but I still love it. If you're putting fun characters with dreams on screen, you can't go too wrong in my books.

loading replies

They should have let Lord and Miller do their thing.

loading replies

It was actually a good movie!
I loved Qi'ra and L3. Those two characters were powerful.
Lando my love, he was amazing, funny, arrogant and cute at the same time.
Han and Chewbacca are one of the best duos of all time.
Like I say before, good movie. It gets more information of how everything stars.

loading replies

Everytime i watch it i love it more! Great soundtrack, great acion scenes, good tie-ins with the universe, Nice Solo, i could picture Ford in several scenes and dialogue pieces. I understand more now how he got in the fringe of the galaxy, always dissappearing from the crimson dawn. He helped start the rebellion wich in the future he helps defeat the empire, and whoa, even the milllenium gets a rebel personallity with L3 combined to her. Good cast, good visuals, a simples story, you can watch it several times, a light hearted adventure in a universe i love!!

Had some problems, but - finally - for me at least, first new star wars that seemed unafraid of doing its own thing and being a little bold. Liked that a lot. Made me think of the classic ones, during it, which the other new ones hadn't really made me do. It's like, George Lucas had a story to tell, through star wars, and created the classics. New movies said, okay, we have star wars, now what should we do with it? And created mediocre movies. Solo was more along the lines of the former, even with its shortcomings, which went a long way, for me. Not that it's in any way comparable to the classics... Characters were the best of the modern movies.

1st half: boring... slow... predictable... stupid
2nd half well not even the 2nd half the 3rd act is much better but the movie as a whole could be described as medicore - 6.6/10.

great film, great cast, great story dont see why anybody is being negative about it

loading replies

Presumably we will finally find out what that "Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs" BS is all about? :-D

loading replies

I can only say it was fine. Aiden was good but not amazing (it was said he needed an acting coach..) it's great to see Chewie and Lando (good Donald) but Emilia was plain and forgettable. Still I wasn't bored but not impressed at all.

loading replies

I want a Lando movie now.

loading replies

I was actually surprised by the depth of the plot.  It looked good and I thought it was well-cast.   However.... it felt like it was missing a little something.

Star Wars needs to keep up with the time. This is just another summer action packed movie with very little substance. I enjoy action movies alot (MCU fan here), but we are at a time where less is alot. The story development is just a bunch of characters meeting and making plans and then some action. I've watched it only for 30 mins, it had 3 action sequences already. It just feels like a cash grab.

loading replies

Did anyone ask for this shit?

loading replies

I love this movie I've always loved Han Solo as a character he's actually my favorite at the whole franchise I'm one of the few people that doesn't really care about the Jedi stuff as much as I do the other aspects of Star Wars so this was an awesome movie to watch to see the organized crime and Military aspects of that world featured more

loading replies

Fantastic movie from start to finish! It's action-packed and is never unnecessarily slow. The leads are well fleshed out and Ehrenreich plays a convincing Han Solo, complete with mannerisms, without falling into the trap of copying Ford. Glover portrays a pitch-perfect Lando, Bettany a frightening antagonist, and Harrelson an interesting mentor for Han. I'm not always a fan of Harrelson but he was a perfect fit for this role.

There are numerous nods and mentions to other products in the franchise, including the extended universe. I highly recommend having watched The Clone Wars series (and even Rebels) to catch most of these references though it is certainly not required to know any of this before watching Solo.

The music is fantastic and both old and new themes come by.

Not once are Jedi or The Force mentioned. Yet, it's arguably the most Star Wars film since the Original trilogy. It definitely feels very much like the old films as it's filled with action, fun, and "whoa" moments.

Unfortunately people were always going to be critical of a Solo movie, genuinely a great movie.

I really enjoyed this movie. Of course the story was a bit predictable, but which movie today isn't? Everything seems to have been done so there's less surprises – especially with a franchise that's been going on for so long.
I think the acting was fine and the story interesting enough to stay that long in the cinema – it's barely over 2h. I found it weird that they didn't seem to promote the movie as much as the other instalments, especially because for me it was way better than last years Last Jedi. It's nice to see some back stories and have the connection between various characters better explained.

loading replies

I think that one of the advantages that this movie has is that everyone expects it to suck. Since you go in with low expectations you actually end up pleasantly surprised. This isn't epic, it isn't mind blowing, or amazing, but it was good, which was more than I was expecting. I went to see it with my daughter who was super excited to see people meet and see the history, and so I think her excitement and enjoyment upped the experience for me as well.

loading replies

Okay, you know how it ends, what counts is the way. The actors that make Han Solo and Qira the weakest, the rest better, seen the seen, I would have preferred a solo movie with Lando as a young man. When they are escaping the tie fighters, they play the music of that same scene of the empire strikes back.The millenium falcon scenes are very cool

loading replies

There's action, there's fighting, there's Han Solo! This is a fun movie that doesn't take itself too seriously. It's part of the anthology collection and as such, doesn't have the complexity of a full-blown Star Wars. The casting was excellent and while the story was focused more on introducing Hans past than anything it all came together quite nicely. It's not one I'm going to be heading back to see in a hurry, but I certainly enjoyed the ride and look forwards to more!

95percent yawns.

A droid more annoying than Jar Jar, I'm sure was also voiced by Brynn/captain phasma?
I liked the first 10 minutes and two things they did near the end.
Lando at least sounded like Lando.

Wait until it's on Netflix.

loading replies

Considering the fact that nobody was waiting for this movie and nobody had any expectations it was really not that bad. The story made sense for the most part, and that's something not that common with the Star Wars franchise these days.

loading replies

It’s entertaining enough, but was there anyone who actually needed this movie to exist..?!

Imagine - a Star Wars movie about relationships built around action adventure. Fantastic cast giving fantastic performances. Having watched Woody Harrelson throughout his career, this film was the confirmation that he has become a superb actor. The soul of this film, for me, was not Solo, but Qi'Ra and her character arch, played by the luminescent Emilia Clark. I'm hoping the mysteries surrounding her character will fuel a sequel. I give this movie an 8 (great) out of 10. [Action Adventure SciFi Drama]

Solo is a return to an ADVENTURE film as opposed to the political thrillers and war films the Star Wars flicks became in the prequels and Rogue One. Some folks don't want this, so I see, on the internet. Well, this is exactly what I wanted. I never really needed to see how Han met Chewie or Lando. I never needed to see the card game where Han won the Millenium Falcon. I didn't need to see the Kessel Run. What I did want to see, and I got here, was a good action film set in Star Wars universe with fun and (mostly) likeable characters and a villain to snarl at. It's a good time and fun. 8/10

There are too many good actors in this for it to be any good. My expectations are now sky high, you got: Chewey, Woody, Thandie, Khalessi, and Donald Glover, come on now...I smell a dud. But I sure hope not.
