File Solo under 'Frivolous Fan Fiction.' ... The starship streaking into light speed here is strictly the millennials' Falcon.

How could they do this to a good joe like Chewie? They've turned him into a wonky Wookiee enslaved by incompetents in a universe of stifling mediocrity.
May 26, 2018
Even at a stretched two hours, the whole thing feels like an aside - a small, low-stakes story stripped of the mythos and epic scale that make the new crop of Star Wars films land.

There is not much of this narrative prelude to praise. [Full review in Spanish]
May 25, 2018
A strong cast and the beginnings of a compelling story are wasted by what is, whichever director or directors is responsible, some of the worst filmmaking in Star Wars history
May 25, 2018
If a robot... is the most charismatic character, something is wrong. [Full review in Spanish]

The largely adorable cast is one of the only things about Solo that works particularly well.
May 25, 2018
Where the prequels were trying too hard, Solo isn't trying hard enough, if at all.
May 25, 2018
Taking its cues from the superhero origin story, Solo goes to great lengths to do fan service over its two-hour running time. For the rest, this prequel is a by-the-numbers entry in the franchise and easily the weakest film in the rebooted series.

Curiously, the least interesting thing about the movie is the title character.
May 25, 2018
SOLO takes the idea first explored in George Lucas' abominable prequels-explain away the magic-and runs it aground.

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
This isn't The Force Awakens but proves about on par with the dreary Rogue One.
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.
May 25, 2018
These auxiliary tales are starting to look less and less like true standalone efforts, picking up the bad habits of one too many convenient tie-ins from their MCU cousins.

Howard lends his expertise as a narrator, but deploys a staging and assembly without spark or claw. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's telling to note the most compelling characters are Donald Glover's Lando and Emilia Clarke's Qi'ra in a film that's supposed to be spotlighting Han Solo.
May 24, 2018
The Ron Howard-directed origin story lacks the thrills expected from watching a young Han Solo scraping by in the galaxy.
May 24, 2018
We want our Star Wars movies to resonate and stay with us... and the more I thought about Solo, the more I disliked it. That's not to say that it's without a few highlights, but I find it a little bothersome.

One senses that completing production was the primary accomplishment to the exclusion of those virtues that made Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back so transporting.
