Solo: A Star Wars Story
Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in 'Solo: A Star Wars Story,' an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo befriends his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
The mighty Wookiee is nearly two centuries old, but he has fallen on hard times during the age of the expanding Empire. When fate has Han and Chewbacca cross paths, Chewbacca embarks on a long, loyal and trusting friendship that he could have never expected.
Smooth, sophisticated Captain Lando Calrissian stands ready to retire from his life of a smuggler and become a full-time gambler. His calling is now to shuffle from one high-stakes card game to another across the galaxy as opportunities arise.
Qi’ra is deeply enmeshed in a life of crime as a member of a street gang on Corellia. Street-smart, calculating and ambitious, she puts her early life as a powerless street urchin behind her and uses all her wits to move up in status within a prominent criminal organisation.
For young Han Solo, times are tough under Imperial rule. He makes his way as a reckless street thief, working for a notorious gang on Corellia, which is headed up by an ill-tempered crime boss. After an arduous stint as an Imperial mudtrooper, Han calls it quits and finds that he is very comfortable reinventing himself and traveling in the company of scoundrels around the galaxy.

However, I personally can't quite understand what the naysayers were expecting from this movie. It seems to me the only thing that would have made some people happy would have been to take Harrison Ford back to 1965 and film a movie starring him.
Honestly, Solo is a fantastic film, it has great characters and in Alden Ehrenreich they have hit the jackpot as far as I am concerned. The biggest compliment I can give his performance is that not once did I think "He's no Harrison Ford". He makes the young Solo his own, I thought he was fantastic. They could have got it badly wrong, in my opinion they didn't !!
The little moments that made me smile so often, which I won't spoil for people but they generally involved Han and his co-pilot. The rest of the cast are good value too, particularly Glover as Lando and Woody Harleson as Beckett.
I saw the originals as a wide eyed 7 - 13 year old in the cinema. The prequels were average, but for me the new films are generally pretty good. For me the 2 stand alones, Rogue One and now Solo are the best of these. My 12 year old absolutely LOVED Solo, watching his face light up in the cinema reminded me of myself watching ROTJ.
I only hope that the mediocre box office (Fanboy Last Jedi backlash perhaps) doesn't stop us seeing more of these versions of Han, Chewie and Lando.
A great adventure in the Star Wars universe !!
Not without its flaws but it kept my interest from start to finish, was funny in the right places and I thought Glover did a decent job playing Lando (although maybe a bit flat at times).
In a nutshell it is an enjoyable watch which is definitely worth seeing for any Star Wars fan!
Solo: a Star Wars story deliveries a fun ride with strong performances and a solid plot. The performances were all solid and it was nice to see some new faces in the cast, my favourite being that of Lando who’s played with all the flair and vanity you’d expect. The action set pieces are slick and well executed and the film moves along at quite a pace. I loved the dog eat dog gangster aspect to the film, about as far as they could have taken it in a 12A. As with Rogue One, here it’s clear that characters are not unkillable and there’s quite a body count by the time it’s ended. Despite being a prequel and thus knowing certain characters will survive somehow the film manages to keep it’s edge through some pretty exciting sequences. While the film replies on a fair amount of CGI especially at the start overall there is a good balance with practical effects and real locations. The stakes of the film also give it a more personal feel, it’s not so much about saving the Universe or whatever but more about saving your own skin. The world of smuggling is somewhat separate from the battle between the Rebels and the Empire. I like the portrayal of Solo quite a bit in this film, Ford left some big shoes to fill of course. Here Solo is played with maybe a little more enthusiastically and less worldly than the jaded cynical pilot we meet on Tatooine. He also has to juggle throughout the film learning not to trust anybody while also longing for his own loyal team who has got his back.
The film suffers a bit from the recent Disney elements you’ll find in Star Wars films, snarky droids, and a feeling that it’s trying to set up more sequels and spin offs. It suffers too from those Disney tropes of having the comic animal or inanimate sidekick, whether it’s a droid or a monkey or a flying carpet or a candlestick, you know what I mean. The behind the scenes problems probably didn’t help the flow of the film either. The film also ticks all the diversity boxes we’ve come to expect from recent Star Wars releases, at times to the point it’s distracting. The actresses playing the leader of one group of rebels/pirates looks like something out of Tracy Beaker. The cinematography I also did find quite dark during the first half, there’s a lot of grey and scenes are not brightly lit. Things brighten up though as the story progresses, perhaps as things start to become clearer to our hero. The dialogue not all that memorable or quotable either, I struggle to recall anything really thinking back now and that’s a real shame coming for a film about such a popular character.
Overall 4/5 I think is fair. The film hits all the right beats and delivers what you’d expect from a Star Wars film about smugglers and pirates. It’s fast paced, well-acted and feels suitably smaller scale than the lightsabres and space battles of the episodes 1-8. That said the film does suffer from slightly too many characters, many of them feel a bit expendable. They keep Qi'ra quite mysterious and cold which makes it hard to work out how you feel about her. After this I would like to see another Han Solo film but something fresh and different not a sequel.
