To be honest, Solo feels like fan fiction. Some scenes-especially the ones shot in extreme close-up of every actor's face-certainly feel like Howard, while others, in which the colors on screen are so dark that you can't see anyone's facial expressions, feel like reshoot salvage jobs. The final result is a fairly entertaining film that is nonetheless completely middle-of-the-road.
"This is lovely", Emilia Clarke (Qi'ra) said in the video, presumably referring to the stunning costumes.
On the Rotten Tomatoes front, Soloactually finds itself pretty low on the Star Wars chart - only Attack of the Clones and The Phantom Menace have scored lower - but the official logline still promises a fast-paced adventure. There's probably a whole trilogy's worth of adventures of Woody Harrelson's Tobias Beckett, a gun-twirling outlaw with unfathomable debts to repay to particularly risky people. They naturally get involved in all sorts of hijinks, before concluding with a bunch of hints as to the man Solo will eventually become. That seems about par for the course with Disney-era Star Wars films. Sure, his reputation as one of the smoothest motherfuckers in the galaxy must play a part, but there's so much left to explore about his life. Deeply entwined when they first meet, their reunion has a real sense of tension - neither person is able to recapture what they once had.

Directed by Ron Howard, Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Hail, Caesar'sAlden Ehrenreich as Han, with Atlanta'sDonald Glover as Lando Calrissian and The Force Awakens' Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca. Yet, the most important answer given in the film is how Han Solo did the Kessel run in under 12 parsecs - a thrilling sequence that functions as the movie's centerpiece. Ron Howard was born to direct it. From changing directors to reshooting 70% of the movie. Lando hangs out in a gambling den for a good chunk of the film, a setting that also allows for a showcase of the film's many cool, new alien designs.
Ehrenreich, who plays the young Solo, isn't the problem with the film, say critics in the film's first reviews released after the embargo broke this morning.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge as a droid too earned plaudits.
One of the most memorable aspects of the character from the original trilogy was the way in which he believably evolved from an out-for-himself scoundrel and mercenary to a hero of the Rebel Alliance worthy of Princess Leia; this origin movie delivers no such satisfying arc of redemption or fall from grace. Ultimately, she isn't given enough to do.
Solo' is something new in Star Wars.
So it would have been a miracle if the movie even turned out to be half-decent.
