Movie Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story

Movie Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story

A group of people standing in a row, in the middle stands Han Solo pointing his blaster. The background is divided into blocks resembling a cockpit window.


Solo is a 2018 movie of Han Solo’s life before his appearance in any of the other Star Wars’ movies. I liked seeing how he met Chewbacca (Chewie) and Han met but I would’ve thought there would’ve been a bit more back and forth fighting and arguing.

Also loved Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian. He did an amazing performance and even channeled the previous actor who played Lando, Billy Dee Williams.

The movie tried very hard and if this was one of my first Star Wars movies, it would be awesome. However, since I have seen all the other films, I have to rate it accordingly. It didn’t have the heart and grit of Rouge One but still a movie to add to my Star Wars collection.

And I loved knowing a bit of back history of Han and Chewie and how they got the  Millennium Falcon. Pieces of the movie were predictible but there were enough surprises for me to enjoy the movie.

My rating 4.6 stars out of 5

Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
