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

When the supporting cast is more appealing than your main character, it's hard to care about what they're supporting.

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.

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.

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 doesn't just make the young Han boring; it reaches back and retrospectively makes the older Han more boring, too. That's some trick.
October 10, 2018
The film is restless and hardly provides any reason to exist.

Solo isn't a disaster, it's just an uninspired showing that is passably entertaining.

Honestly, all the big draws to the film were the biggest letdowns of it for me.

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.

The biggest problem of Solo is not its being a mishmash of repeated narratives. It is its refusal to be anything more than a redundant piece in the puzzle.

I left with the sentiment of feeling uninspired...how am I coming out of a Star Wars movie like that?
August 30, 2018
I don't know how they botched it with such a great cast.
August 30, 2018
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.
August 28, 2018
What's onscreen simply isn't magical enough. It might please die-hard fans to know how Han got the last name or how he made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs...But I think even they might be disappointed.
August 27, 2018
A few unexpected twists towards the end, and the work of its top-notch cast... simply aren't enough.
August 27, 2018
This doesn't give much room for the actors to breathe. It's a miracle Ehrenreich is able to make anything at all with Han, given how much mimicry he has to do.
August 24, 2018
How did we get an origin story where Han Solo is not only NOT the most interesting character in the movie, he's honestly maybe sixth or seventh?
August 21, 2018
There are more interesting and new unexplored corners of the Star Wars universe, unfortunately [Han] Solo's backstory isn't one of them.
August 6, 2018
Ultimately, Solo's biggest disappointment is that it is forgettable, especially among the sea of other hero movies that came out recently.
