3.5/5 stars. Solo: A Star Wars Story is a 2018 space western film set in Disneys now expansive Star Wars universe. It is the second anthology Star Wars film after Rouge One. Well not received well in the box office, or particularly favored by critics, I was surprised to find myself having an absolute blast while watching this movie. While this movie is fun, there are still many flaws littered throughout. The main issue comes from the entire premise of making a Han Solo movie. This character has been so beloved and choosing now to make a film centered around him is a gamble. To many, this could be seen as a perversion of such an awesome character, a quick (but failed) cash grab by the big studio Disney. While I don’t have such a cynical view of the motivations for making this movie, they did not do any justice to flushing out or developing the character of Han Solo any further. I would have much preferred to have the movie be centered around a new cast of characters. This would allow Disney to start to take the Star Wars franchise in new directions instead of simply relying on past canon. While a good movie, I feel it is a missed opportunity for Disney to exploit with their multibillion-dollar franchise. @Joaquin of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

A little too concerned with connecting the dots between young Han Solo and the original Star Wars trilogy, but this movie is way more fun than it should be based on the infamous production issues. It could have used some more humor, but at the end of the day it's still a pretty dang fun Star Wars story.

Pretty enjoyable!
They finally deal with the issue of some robots being sentient! and what happened to chewbacca's people? and where does the empire get its resources? and other stuff
Good amount of female characters with lines too...not perfect but better than the old starwars movies
I thought it was not as good and Force Awakens or The Last Jedi --but much, much better than Rogue One.

It was good, but people are haters of the new Han Solo actor. He's done a pretty good job trying to be like Harrison Ford. Disney still kind of made things complicated with Darth Maul and Han Solo's girlfriend and all the gangs in the movie. I think it was pretty good. Better than Star Wars 7 and 8. Next to Rouge One, this is the best Disney Star Wars ever made.

Pretty much the stupid thing they did in this movie was bringing in the criminal group Crimson Dawn with Darth Maul I would have believed it better if they brought in the criminal group Black Sun with Prince Xizor would have tied nicely into a Shadows of the Empire movie but they decided to make a dumb move resurrecting a dead Darth Maul very lame move. Hated the love interest not needed. Getting sick of all the girl power garbage getting pushed into these SJW Star Wars movies. There was only a few good parts to the movie everything else just seemed like boring filler. I do admit Ron Howard did a better job on this movie than Rain Johnson did with the suck fest The Last Jedi.

According to TH (the Husband) this movie is JUST LIKE THE BOOKS; which means it scored big points in our household (unlike the Marvel Universe Films).

I thought it was a Star Wars movie which took Han to the exact places and problems we've come to expect from our intrepid flier. All in all an enjoyable break from the day to day. Plus, it's directed by Ron Howard and Mr. Howard seldom makes bad movies.

Only for fanboys.
Starts off OK, but quickly degenerates into a lame action genre. Ho hum.
Actors - that grinning geek who tries to play Solo gets tiresome very quickly, & that is whom the movie is about. That kills the whole story.
The rest ... immediately forgettable. Even Harrelson realizes he's knee deep in a quagmire but like a trooper gives it a shot.
2+ hours - maybe if you're bored. Disney ain't what it used to be. Now it's all about franchises & how much they extract from a gullible public.
[edit]
I forgot the SJW robot. Lando's infatuation with it is somewhat kinky considering the "diversity", but it's "inclusive", so all is well.
This PC garbage is in your face everywhere now.
Perhaps I can delete a star.

To sum up: a small errand that goes sideways. Escape. Some time passes and another heist that goes wrong, again. Then, one big heist and some some hard lessons learned, score! A decade or so later… a new..

If you need to complete the collection, go for it. Lastly, it’ll be interesting to see if “her” storyline is explored elsewhere.

Good movie, but some of the creatures and characters were just a little too far fetched for me. It's one of those you need to get into the mood for. It's nice to know the Hans Solo story, but I just was not convinced with the casting. Sort of not here not there, sort of here and there...hard to put my finger on it.

Another nothing else to do on the plane movie.

36 quotes IMDb and surprised that this one is not in it as of today:

I'm an outlaw. ... What? I'm not kidding.
-Okay. Okay, outlaw, you can tell yourself that, but I might be the only person in the whole galaxy who knows what you really are.
Yeah. What's that?
-You are the good guy.
