None of what the movie did made up for the fact that I still just didn't come out of this movie understanding the character of Han Solo any differently.

A few unexpected twists towards the end, and the work of its top-notch cast... simply aren't enough.

I left with the sentiment of feeling am I coming out of a Star Wars movie like that?

I don't know how they botched it with such a great cast.

There are more interesting and new unexplored corners of the Star Wars universe, unfortunately [Han] Solo's backstory isn't one of them.

Ultimately, Solo's biggest disappointment is that it is forgettable, especially among the sea of other hero movies that came out recently.

It's a smorgasbord of fanservice moments that practically look directly into the camera and wink, but each time it happens, the gesture gets less and less endearing.

The two entries into the new trilogy have felt epic and heavy but also joyous and uplifting. Solo tries to grasp at both ends of this spectrum, with doomed romances alongside soaring Falcon chase sequences, but it never really reaches either.

There's a whole galaxy out there, but Ron Howard doesn't seem to realise it. His Han Solo prequel is a pedestrian journey through a series of inconsequential set-pieces, where character development of its iconic protagonist is stuck to the surface.

This movie springboards off the flaws of Star Wars movies that have come before it, not the strengths... If new Star Wars movies are meant for a new generation, then I feel like a new generation deserves better than this.

What frustrates me is that it seems the original directors were trying to build an element of unpredictability into pre-manufactured franchises. What we have is the heartwarming Han as our connection to Star Wars grows a little dimmer.

My main beef is that there is no sense of originality despite it being an origin story.

The problems extend from characterization to plot.

If you want to see a perfect example of a once-loved and brilliant movie franchise being milked bone-dry, then the prequel spinoff "Solo" is the movie for you.

"Solo" is not an awful movie, it just has a few awful parts that feel uninspired.
May 24, 2018
An annual Star Wars film might have been the childhood dream of many of us, but Solo suggests otherwise.

Whenever "Star Wars" tries to develop one of the franchise's key characters, it whiffs. "Solo" is no exception, a disappointment on par with "The Last Jedi" and the prequels.

Franchise fatigue is real and it's acutely felt in a galaxy far, far away.
May 21, 2018
It's cool that Solo: A Star Wars Story lets you know how Han met Chewbacca and Lando. But that's just enough intrigue to fill a trailer -- not a feature film.
May 25, 2018
Taking its cues from the superhero origin story, Solo goes to great lengths to do fan service over its two-hour running time. For the rest, this prequel is a by-the-numbers entry in the franchise and easily the weakest film in the rebooted series.
