Solo is so hellbent on shoehorning in ironic callbacks to previous films that the teasing presence of such breadcrumbs is more frustrating than nourishing.

When the supporting cast is more appealing than your main character, it's hard to care about what they're supporting.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

Solo isn't terrible, it isn't great; it's fine. A serviceable, if unmemorable space western that is pretty much redundant.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Ehrenreich tries the best he can, but just can't capture the same arrogant charm that Harrison Ford made so iconic. He winds up being just as bland and forgettable as the rest of the film.

Solo isn't a disaster, it's just an uninspired showing that is passably entertaining.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Solo feels more like a placeholder for a better movie yet to come...a pretty good, completely fine movie. Not bad, not great, just watchable.

The character deaths in Solo: A Star Wars Story will leave you feeling angry, as they are unearned and disproportionately affect women.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.00/5

The film is restless and hardly provides any reason to exist.
Full Review | Original Score: C

On the surface, Solo resembles the classic Star Wars film, but it doesn't take long to determine that Howard's entry is just a meek variation of the beloved franchise.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

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.
August 30, 2018
I left with the sentiment of feeling uninspired...how am I coming out of a Star Wars movie like that?
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

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.

Honestly, all the big draws to the film were the biggest letdowns of it for me.
August 5, 2018
Ultimately, Solo's biggest disappointment is that it is forgettable, especially among the sea of other hero movies that came out recently.
October 29, 2018
Solo may have the look and feel of a Star Wars movie along with some iconic characters, but it's missing the heart of one.

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.
June 6, 2018
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.
May 20, 2018
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.
