Movie Review – Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story I’m certainly not disappointed. I think this one was better than the other new Star Wars movies, except for Rogue One.

I’m impressed that they managed to hit all of the important back story elements to Han’s character, without it feeling forced or cheesy.

My only complaint is that the story dragged on a bit, in places. Some of the action scenes were longer than necessary. Specifically, the exit from the mining colony into doing the Kessel Run scene. This is the equivalent of seeing Captain Kirk pass the Kobayashi Maru test in Star Trek 2009. Only this scene just went on and on, and was more like a cheap amusement ride. And then the solution wasn’t really anything Han did. It was a team effort.

Grade: B

About The Peetimes: Three good Peetimes we have. Yes. 🙂

I would recommend the 2nd Peetime over the others. The synopsis is a quick and easy read. My priority was to make sure none of the important references from the original Star Wars movies are in any of the Peetimes, then try not to have any humor or good action. I think I managed on all 3 fronts. 

There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Solo: A Star Wars Story. (What we mean by Anything Extra)

Buy the movie from Amazon.com on DVD or Blu Ray

  1. Good review. I don’t understand why the fans reacted negatively to this film. It’s a good movie and I had a great time watching it. I can’t wait to see it again. It’s better than Last Jedi, IMO, and better than Rogue One in my book…putting Solo at about…somewhere in the top five for me. I need to re-sort my favorites.

    The kid did a nice job portraying a wet-behind-the-ears Han, who still considered himself one of the good guys. And Lando was worth the price of everything in the universe — he was THAT good at the part. And I want his Cape Closet. With the capes. I’ll take the Wookiee too. 🙂

    When It comes to swagger I prefer Old Han and Star Lord, but young Han was still a delight to see.
