Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)

solo-theatrical-poster_f98a86eb

During an adventure into the criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his future co-pilot Chewbacca and encounters Lando Calrissian years before joining the Rebellion. (IMDb)
A solid, if unspectacular space adventure with good action (the dangerous short-cut on the Kessel run was a highlight), interesting and likeable characters (many of the charmingly unpredictable “mostly good” variety; others pure comic relief-I loved L3: “Do you want anything?” “Equal rights?”), and an easy-to-follow plan/heist/escape plot with a couple nice twists at the end. Finally, I know this is dependent on seeing the other films, but I smiled big when Chewy climbed in the co-pilot’s seat.
7/10 (Good)

  1. Good review. Personally, I thought this movie was just okay. Really didn’t need to see a origin tale of Hans Solo. Held my interest, but wanted to see something different and new from the Star Wars universe….
