Thank you Ron Howard
This was great from start to finish. Alden is an excellent and Donald Glover, whoa!! Will be a favorite for years to come.
I really enjoyed this movie
Ron Howard really did a great job saving this in a very short amount of time. This was very fun to watch
Disney continues to ruin one of my favorite franchises
Just do what Marvel is doing, and fire Kathleen Kennedy already
Best Disney Era Star Wars Movie
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.
This movie is exhausting to watch.

Definition of tedious and unnecessary. Stay away from this schlock. Cash grab of the highest order..
The last Jedi was terrible. The people that loved the last Jedi are probably the people talking trash about solo. Let me just tell you... This Solo movie was made for the true Star Wars fan. From the music down to the background sound effects, it reminded me what it was like to be a kid again in the late 70’s. And Lando was spot on! You could close your eyes and it sounded just like billy dee. Lots of references and throw backs to the original trilogy. I can’t say this movie is better than the original trilogy because you can’t beat perfection. But what I can say is that I enjoyed it and felt like it is worthy of the title “Star Wars”. Ron Howard did a great job. I only wish they would make a sequel because there is so much more story to tell.
I saw this in the theater can say that the action scenes were great but the writing and characterizations were merely cheap, feminist propaganda. I believe the term to best describe this movie is a MarySue Roundup. Though the actor who plays Han Solo is good, his portrayal makes me feel like I am seeing a fanfic novel brought to life. It bears no resemblance to the character Harrison Ford developed. As much as I’d love to see an end to productions like this, I get the feeling that the Disney Magic will keep these STAR WARS Stories coming for years to come.

It’s a fine movie. Not great, not as terrible as The Last Jedi. Cool I got to see it, but sadly this will be the second ever Star Wars movie I will not buy, not because I hate it (like TLJ) but because, it’s good but not good enough to need to see it again. Just, eh
Soylo Is Not Solo
Nobody wants to pre-order this trash, Disney and Kathleen Kennedy have done so much damage to the Star Wars franchise. If it wasn’t for the Star Wars aesthetics Soylo, and the recent Star Wars films, would have nothing in common with the original trilogy, or even the prequels.
Solo for instance, is not the same Solo everyone enjoyed in the original trilogy. This isn’t a matter of, “Of course he is going to be different from the trilogy Solo,” due to his being younger. No, Soylo is fundamentally different from the original Solo. Speaking of which, many other aspects of the Star Wars universe is being rewritten in this film - and in the other films too.
Lando, for instance. “Oh no! They’ve touched Lando too?!” Yes, they have, and in inappropriate ways. Lando has been changed into an LGBT pansexual character, who has no standards as to who he will get into bed with. At least they got his cheating right, albeit it is practically a rip off of a western - plagiarized would probably be more accurate.
And now we have a feminist robot, who fights for and believes robots should have rights. This is probably as big an offense as Soylo himself. Robots have always been portrayed as servants, kind of similar to dogs and cats - loyal to their masters and unquestioning, to some extent. But now - and keep in mind that this is a kind of prequel - a robot believes it is sentient on the same level as a human, and that zer fellow robots are actually oppressed. Robots in the Star Wars universe have never been portrayed this before. “But wait! What about R2D2?” Nope, he may have been portrayed as being smarter and wittier than most droids, but never as a (for lack of a better word) sentient creature.
This is perhaps the worst Star Wars film ever made, to-date, and we haven’t even gotten Episode 9 yet. The fact that this film is projected to pull in less than $105 million over the Memorial Day weekend, should be very telling to anyone interested in Soylo. And these same people plan on making a Boba Fett film? Mark my words, THAT film will break any interest in the Star Wars franchise that currently remains. Avoid this film, save your money, and consider getting into a new franchise.
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.
