Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian.
It's a very good film, the storyline is tight and the characters are really good but in the longrun it's simply a cool movie in the universe, not adding a lot to the LOR or the entire saga in general
This is first and foremost a fun space western. In that right, it succeeds. It is not completely Star Wars. It tries to be, giving us a different side of the universe, but it feels like Star Wars mixed with Valerian. The performances were decent. It takes a bit for you to accept Eichenrach as Solo but by the end, you can totally see it. Woody Harrelson was a fine guy to see, he's been getting better. Emilia Clarke was fairly good. The standout is, of course, Donald Glover as Lando. He's exactly what a young Lando would and should be.The writing was probably my biggest disappointment. If you know me, you know I love writing. I'm okay with this writing, but there wasn't anything too great. It didn't do anything you didn't expect, which was probably my main problem.The direction was uneven, no surprise. It's not their fault, really. There was a director shake up halfway through production. Kinda amazing how decent it was given all the behind the scenes drama.It's not anything special. 6/10.
What an unbelievably awful film. Why he the franchise been destroyed?
I should have brought my pillow... this seriously sucked. Did Disney do this? this was no effort of imagination put into this. More of a get rich, shove star wars stories down peoples throats type of movies.1 star
