    An OT (Original Trilogy) generation fan’s review of the movie from a certain point of view. During the late 80s and 90s known as the “dark times” we had little Star Wars. We had books to read but no movies. We heard stories about how Han and Chewie met. How Han won the Falcon. How Han was an Imperial. What we got with this movie gives nods to a generation of fans that put their time in without being too heavy handed that new fans would be lost in lore. It captures a young optimistic Han earning his cynical nature we grew to love from him. This story earns every step. The building of of Hans character, the bond between Chewie and Han and how that loyalty is earned. The falcon and the beginnings of that love story. Speeder chases, a train heist, Star Wars underworld, gangsters, scoundrels, and the infamous Kessel Run. This movie has it all and more. It does it all with surprises along with twists and turns. Rouge One was gritty for a Star Wars movie and amazing. This was a fun roller coaster ride, fast paced with young versions of lovable characters that still have room to grow. My hope is that this story progresses, but due to the critics waiting for a chance to to redeem themselves for their love of TLJ (shows how out of touch they are) we may never see more from these amazing characters. Critics buried this film, they should stick to art films, dramas, and keep their opinion out of Star Wars and leave it to the people that Star Wars is meant for, the fans. Critics wouldn’t know a YT 1300 if it hit them in face. They can take their Teras Kasi grip off of Star Wars and leave it to the people’s opinion that’s all that matters.

    Most of these reviews are obviously bots. If you are into SJW pandering & holier-than-thou virtue signaling, than this movie might be for you. If not, stay galaxies away. The actors can't act, & the story is bland.
  • Not too shabby

    For all the criticism, it was still a fun flick. More satisfying than the Last Jedi.
  • Thank you Ron Howard!

    this movie seemed shallow and rushed compared to any star wars released old or new. where is the adventure , exploration. where is the strange but beautiful or ugly creatures. the movie seemed more based on han solo and the crew than anything else. maybe that was intended , but just seemed like there was no magic to the movie . yes there was creatures but was rushed past them , very minimal when it comes to atmosphere , exploration , and alien life.

    This movie felt more like a star wars movie. Lots of throw backs to the orginal trilogy. The music and sound effects were true star wars. The action was incredible. And Lando was spot on! I will admit that I was nervous about the actor playing Han Solo. At first I thought "this is not Han Solo". By the end of the movie I felt like it really was Han Solo. It is almost like the character slowly transformed throughout the entire film into the Han that we all know and love. Ron Howard did an excellent job. He payed close attention to the details of our beloved star wars universe. All I can say is I hope there is a sequel.

    It’s sad that these one didn’t break box office record like TLJ or any previous one. But it’s well constructed and story line with a lot of hidden details (visually, dialogue,music)to any Star Wars fan will pick up. Ron Howard is a veteran director and safe the movie, the story line and several sequences come from the previous Lucas Films. (American Graffiti, THX1138,)
  • Great Star Wars movie.

    'Solo' is a fantastic Star Wars movie. The critics are wrong. Great portrails of Han, Chewie, and Lando. This movie and 'Rogue One' are the best Disney has offered to date. they need to keep up the SW spin-offs.

    Ron Howard is a true fan. He made a movie that keep you interested and put just the right parts that made you feel the way you did seeing the original Star Wars in ‘77.

    This movie is great. The acting was fantastic, the plot was great, it felt like one of the original trilogy movies. And it does the impossible, it melds together the old and new of the Star Wars universe. Watch it, you will not be disappointed.

    Once we stop comparing the new Han to Harrison Ford along with the older Star Wars movies, things will be ok...Times change , and you have to grow and evolve with the changes.....
  • Solo: A Star Wars Story

    By Noah Pfister
    Ugh...Well...It's not as bad as I thought it would be. It's not exceptional, not even close. It doesn't reach the heights of storytelling like in Empire or Last Jedi, and it certainly does not have the balls dropping action of Rogue One, but it's serviceable. Alden manages to be a good Solo, despite not having the character development that you'd want. Woody is pretty good, same with Clarke. Bettany was pretty great...that is when he was on the F***ING screen. Donald Glover obviously kills it as Landish Gambino, sorry...Lando Calrissian. The score by John Powell is also pretty good at times. The action is good, but appears outta nowhere making for jarring scenes. But the biggest problem of them all is the first credit we see in the end. Directed by Ron Howard. My biggest gripe with the movie is what it could have been. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller should have gotten the movie they were hired to mkae, but after getting fired over halfway through the production, and then hiring Howard to finish it up, it is very easy to tell who did what. The pacing and tone is jarring and sometimes aggrevatting. But it is forgiven by the end as what we got was a good Star Wars movie that is saved by its performances and visuals. It's by no means the trainwreck that you have been led to believe, but don't go in thinking you're gonna get the next Rogue One, because it's not. You won't really want to watch it again after seeing it once, but you'll be satisfied. In regards to iTunes, I'm giving it a 4/5 stars, but it more or less deserves a 7/10 or 6.5/10. This doesn't make the future of Star Wars look good, and I just hope that Mangold's Boba Fett, Abram's Episode 9, and Old Man Kenobi can pull Star Wars out of the rut that it's in right now, because Solo deserved better and Star Wars deserves better. This 4 out of 5 stars breaks my heart, because Star Wars SHOULD be a 5/5 star movie. This franchise needs to get back on track soon or else I don't see why I should be visiting this galaxy far, far away any time soon.
  • Space Western at its Finest

    Solo: A Star Wars Story is as fun and light as The Last Jedi was serious and brooding. Like the originals, Solo is a space western at its core, and doesn’t take itself too seriously, while showcasing action thrills and countless alien species that make it feel like Star Wars through and through.
