Ultimately, Solo's biggest disappointment is that it is forgettable, especially among the sea of other hero movies that came out recently.

Solo: A Star Wars Story wants to benefit from its main characters' legendary status without contributing much to it.

"It flatters Millennial audiences, who are largely unschooled in the literary-cinematic history of chivalry, to romanticize their own self-gratifying assumption of virtue-signaling."

A complete whiff...

No Star Wars installment has been more lost in space than this one. [Full review in Spanish]

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.

The trio [of Ehrenreich, Glover, and Clarke] might've made an excellent film, had they been given better material than the exposition heavy dialogue in Solo. Would that it were so simple.

It's a shame that a project that on paper had the potential to be something interesting, turned out to be a movie so mediocre for a character who doesn't deserve that. [Full Review in Spanish]

The problems extend from characterization to plot.

Maybe some Star Wars stories don't actually need to be told.

Solo is essentially a 135-minute version of the River Phoenix sequence from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - only it looks like complete garbage and is no fun at all.

If you want to see a perfect example of a once-loved and brilliant movie franchise being milked bone-dry, then the prequel spinoff "Solo" is the movie for you.

Howard keeps everything moving at a whip, as if he wants to finish the film under twelve parsecs. But speed paradoxically doesn't make for excitement. Too much breathlessness and we simply suffocate.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is a film designed for complacency in particular for the thousands of fans who clutch Star Wars to their heart. [Full Review in Spanish]

Everything about Solo seems just plain tired, from Ron Howard's rudimentary direction to the more-of-the-same/ incessant score to the murky cinematography.
May 29, 2018
This is franchise film-making at its worst.
May 29, 2018
Franchise fatigue is real and it's acutely felt in a galaxy far, far away.
May 28, 2018
A film comprised entirely of information whose significance was determined decades ago, "Solo" explores events that shaped Han Solo, but seems actively at war with itself over how much to humanize the most irresistible rogue in the galaxy.

What in Alden Ehrenreich's resume convinced someone he could be the next Han Solo! Star making role that just fizzled. But long live Chewy.
May 27, 2018
The tropes and twists of shamelessly recycled clichés are presented throughout with an absurd earnestness.
