"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.

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

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]

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.

When we have to go through the scenes with emotional depth, the film loses its pulse. [Full Review in Spanish]

The picture is zippy enough to almost earn a recommendation. But while those folks who love all things Star Wars regardless of quality will adore it, those of us who grew up with the franchise and find it still rooted in our DNA deserved something better.

It could have been good or it could have been bad, but the one thing these films should never be is ordinary.

Survives on nostalgia and good faith rather than telling a story that brings new ingredients to the recipe

Solo: A Star Wars Story is a spiritless movie for a brave character. [Full review in Spanish]

The character deaths in Solo: A Star Wars Story will leave you feeling angry, as they are unearned and disproportionately affect women.

Think of it like an appendix to your favorite book. It's a fun movie, but only because of its subject matter and characters. It can't stand on its own.

In short, it's clearly a movie made by committee with many hands on deck.

The truth is, Solo is far from a risky venture-there's nothing surprising in it, just some good old-fashioned action-driven fun.

I honestly hope the magic isn't completely gone from the Star Wars universe, because it certainly appears to be with this latest standalone film.

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

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.
October 31, 2018
Solo isn't terrible, it isn't great; it's fine. A serviceable, if unmemorable space western that is pretty much redundant.
