It's neither good nor bad, meaningful or meaningless.

"Rogue One" succeeded because it was a killer one-off between Roman Numeral episodes; "Solo" leaves an open ending to launch its own "franchise within a franchise," a frustrating move for a series that's already teetering on over-saturation.

This could easily have been exhausting - and it occasionally is - but there's a certain joy to seeing these iconic characters done slightly differently.

The feature just jogs awkwardly on a treadmill for two hours and 15 minutes, its only breathing moments reserved for readjusting its socks.

Heady and thrilling enough to please newcomers to the saga as well as its inveterate fans.

A fun and exciting heist movie. Think of it as part the 1978 version of The Great Train Robbery and part Heat, with a little bit of Fast Five sprinkled in for flavor. Yes, those are all very different films, but so is Solo.

There's soaring space adventure and bland tedium; we see fantastic renditions of beloved characters juxtaposed against ho-hum portrayals of others. Overall, it's fine, but when talking about Han Solo, is fine good enough?

It's annoyingly responsible for staining the iconography of Han Solo. [Full review in Spanish]

It has fantastic action set pieces, furthers our understanding (to a point) of the characters we know, and even leaves open the possibility for future young Han Solo adventures, which I'm not opposed to.

Watch the originals.

A murky, useless, pandering mess of bad ideas.

The problem with Solo does not stem from its chaotic production history. It's that the star never fills the role. Ehrenreich is upstaged by literally every member of the supporting cast.

Solo is a decent movie, and you'll learn the origin of one of the most important characters in the Star Wars universe - Han Solo.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is a movie I love more and more every time I watch it.

Solo positions itself at a point along the Star Wars timeline that hasn't been fleshed out much by either the movies or the TV shows. That gives the admittedly simple story a chance to surprise audiences.
October 17, 2019
Overall, Solo is not anywhere near the top of the heap as far as 'important' stories in the saga, but it is unqualified fun, and with all LucasFilm has put us through lately, it's a welcome relief and palate cleanse.
October 17, 2019
It's a ton of fun, and well made on every level, but it suggests that there is some fraying in the forcefulness of 'The Force.'
October 17, 2019
Opening mid-action and never quite letting up, the latest entry in the Star Wars saga is a delightfully fast-paced romp with a twinkle in its eye.
September 26, 2019
Not too spirited, not overly serious. Not bad, not great. Squarely decent. One for die-hards only.
September 18, 2019
A pretty decent film in the Star Wars cinematic universe.
