Obviously fans are happy to keep revisiting the bellowing Wookiee and the warp-speed dashes through the wide beyond, and satisfying as it is, Solo gives them what they want: more of the same.

Luckily, just as tempers were starting to flare, Solo: A Star Wars Story has arrived to save the day.
May 27, 2018
The tropes and twists of shamelessly recycled clichés are presented throughout with an absurd earnestness.

Nothing in Solo can compete with a single scene in The Force Awakens. But what this film does have is cape-clad pilot Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) and his pal, uppity droid L3-37 (Phoebe Waller-Bridge).

Of all the Star Wars-themed movies, this one is the closest to a Saturday afternoon serial/western. Don't expect more than that.
May 25, 2018
Young Han can only watch helplessly as the gravity of the Star Wars children's crusade overwhelms him and the wondrous fun run gives way to a joyless slog that actually undermines the heroism of A New Hope even as it seeks to foreshadow it.
May 25, 2018
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.

Solo is at its best when it's uncoupled from all that heavy lifting, just crammed in a cockpit with its likeable cast and shooting for the stars.
May 24, 2018
It doesn't feel like a cohesive piece, so while it's at times charming, and does get off the ground in the last act, the getting there is extremely bumpy.
May 24, 2018
An adventure that lacks poetry but succeeds as popcorn entertainment.
May 24, 2018
There is a rote quality to Solo: A Star Wars Story that not only undercuts many of these thrills, but runs directly counter to the spirit of Han Solo.
May 24, 2018
Like Han Solo himself, Solo is rough around the edges. Under the grime, though, is a fun romp through space that's more lighthearted than you might expect from Star Wars.
May 24, 2018
As a B-movie, "Solo" delivers, sometimes in a way that reminds a viewer of this franchise's roots in classic Saturday matinee adventure serials and sometimes simply as proficient, dutiful, time-passing entertainment.
May 23, 2018
The new movie has been described as a space western, but I think it's more like a pirate movie - and almost pure fun from start to finish.
May 23, 2018
But the neutral news about "Solo" is exactly that, its dramatic neutrality. Time ticks by at a drifty pace while lots of action of no great consequence grinds on.
May 23, 2018
The heavy Star Wars legacy sits lightly on Mr. Ehrenreich's shoulders in a Disney-Lucasfilm movie that is finally having fun.
May 23, 2018
Solo: a movie no one was clamoring for that has been made without any distinguishing qualities.
Top Critic

Struck me as intellectual property unconvincingly arranged into the shape of a movie.
May 17, 2018
Solo, like the Falcon in Empire, tends to sputter just when it should leap into hyperdrive.
May 17, 2018
Its flawed central performance ultimately makes "Solo" a distinct disappointment.
