    I thought the beginning was boring. I didn’t get to see it in the theater so I saw it at home and I started browsing on eBay because that train part was so uninteresting.
    I guess it was ok. It wasn’t terrible.
    I agreed with your review.

    Just saw it. Probably the best out of the Disney Star Wars movies. I think most of its hate and apathy comes from backlash from Episode 8 but Solo is MUCH better than The Last Jedi.

    I had low expectations, so I liked it, young Han was better than young Lando! I loved Han and Chewie's rapport. I enjoyed Paul Bettany and Emilia Clarke's characters. Loved when Han and Chewie pilot the Falcon! Did not like SJW robot and infes nest was a little forced. Hated how Han's last name is chosen and Han's blaster creation was odd. Would love to see how the original cut would be.

    I loved how dark the Imperial war scene was, it made sense! And then they just kept the scenes way too dark, AngryJoe mentions his buddy asking "Is the projector broken?"

    Jeremy loves Star Wars but here’s how you know he’s not a fanboy, he’s willing to say he disliked something Star Wars related

    Not gonna lie you literally didnt tell me anything to support what your saying like i mean your saying that the pacing of action sequence was bad but your not saying what sequence that was your making points but not saying what those points are like for example “donald glover was the best actor in the movie” okay what made him stand out... what made han so bad what moments broke the immersion same thing goes for woody Harrison. This is a review but you barely cover any moments from the movie its self and what made it so bad for you, now all be it you could be avoiding spoilers but you dont say this... anywhere

    As thought most of the new sequel movies were crap, some of them were mediocre at best. I expected to hate this movie. I just watched it and I'm fucking blown away. Why is this getting so much hate and bad reviews? The movie is fucking incredible. This dude just called it boring?! It's anything but boring. There are some problematic things for sure, but other than that it's a incredible action adventure sci fi movie, a bit more grown up then the previous movies. With incredible acting, great humor, great fan service and a good love story (could have been developed a little more)
    My only issue was the teenage girl that apparently jumpstarts the rebellion with solo's heist money.. she was so fucking out of place and dumb. But you know "it's a movie with a male lead and it also has another big fan favorite male (lando)" It felt like they made her a teenage girl just to make it more PC which was dumb. She should have at least been an ADULT. She looked 14 or so at first I really thought she was the "lost daughter" of beck and val.
    But no she is a early rebel super warrior that kickstarts the rebellion.

    The worst part is how Han reunited with Q’ira so early in the story. Yeah, she was a pretty interesting character, but the movie lost its emotional weight. Instead of going on the mission because he wanted to reunite with Q’ira, he just goes because the plot tells him to.

    This is one of the first reviews I mostly didn't agree with from you, I actually enjoyed the difference in not there just being a main villain and etc... it felt like an episode in an adventure series for me like Indianna Jones.

  • Aerociviz Nicholas

    The pacing didn't feel bad at all for me. It didn't even feel that boring.

  • Legendary Myth

    I think this movie had a lot of story behind it showing you how the actual series came to be and not just Solo’s character. I also think the movie showed how Solo became and developed into the series. Just my opinion.

  • Gringo Stingo
    Gringo Stingo Month ago

    You're entitled to your opinion, but I personally thought this was the best Star Wars movie Disney has made.
    Just for reference, I think that Force Awakens and Last Jedi are shit. I remember liking Rogue One, but really the only things that were memorable enough to stick with me until now is that Darth Vader scene and the fate of all the main characters.
    I will agree that the pacing of this movie was off, but I still enjoyed myself the entire time.

    They never give credit where credit is due....The Millenium Falcon. The real star of the series.

    Donald Glover stands out, because he is the only one allowed to play the original character. The new Han Solo actor is not even bad, I even liked him, but he is just not allowed to be Han Solo, because of Kennedy's own agenda. He didn't even get to save the girl in his own freaking movie!

    I just saw it on Netflix and shockingly I really like it. I get why people didn't see it but not the hate for this movie itself, it was a good movie.
    -The Actor 😪 Just fine but was bland. They could have easily gotten someone better.
    -Redoing plotlines 🙄 Han owes someone money, Han gets cockblocked on the falcon and Lando betrays him.
    -Han being a good guy at the end, like really? He does a 180 for a person who tried to kill him and for a rebellion we never saw? Yea, no.
    -Maul??? And stop trying to me those damn dice a thing!
    -The script
    -Lando and Chewie
    -The built up to Han and Chewie being in the cockpit
    -The heist, the castle run and the train
    -Everytime Han bs's his way through a situation.
    Dude it was good. It felt like star wars and made me excited. Made sense more then TLJ and TFW and more entertaining then Episode 1&2. Just saying.

    Solo was ok rouge one was better, and I don't even acknowledge the new trilogy. To me star wars is an intense sci-fy drama with little to no comedy, but this new crap is tons of corny comedy which most of isn't even funny.

    First five minutes and I already hate it. And he’s a horrible Han Solo. The stupid rock seen and he looks like he’s struggling in the action scenes too. And looking at those dice every 30 seconds was irritating

    I don’t agree with your opinion because in my opinion, I actually liked the movie. I don’t see how this was a boring movie at all. It had action, good character moments and why would you say you forgot that Woody Harrelson was in the movie, the dude was on screen almost all the time.

  • Asian Import

    I recently went back and watched Solo again, and I’m gonna say it: ITS A GOOD MOVIE. The pacing was good, the acting was good, and the action was great. Plus, side characters like L3 and Rio were pleasant surprises. I feel like people hated on this movie just for the sake of it.
    Unless you read the books (which most people don’t), these spinoff films are the only thing letting people experience stories outside of the mainline plot, and I for one am looking forward to them all.

    I usually agree with Jeremy, but I thought the pacing of Solo was damn good, and it's the best Star Wars movie since the original trilogy. It's better than all the crappy Prequels, Force Awakens, Last Jedi and Rogue One.

    It was - not horrible, like TLJ. But not in the same space as Empire or Return - I wanted to like the characters more than I did. And although I enjoy the actor who voiced the feminist robot I thought the character was annoying.

    It is true, the movie is too talky, the pace is too slow, it becomes boring and there is a problem with the ending the last action scene of the movie is at 30 minutes before the end of the movie. BORING SOLO

    You’re a great reviewer of movies and respect you observations but gotta disagree. I was shocked how good a movie was Solo. It looked like a bomb from the first trailer. Firing the directors is a panic move based on test audiences. Rumor was Erhenreicht couldn’t act and needed an acting coach against all odds it was a fun watch. Even with the prequelover explanation of every aspect of the Solo backstory. And the injection of flavor of the month actors Vision guy and Game of Thrones girl. The movie was entertaining

  • Pedro Rosario

    So I'm a little late. Just put the movie on at 10p last night. After running all around all day I expected to fall asleep watching this movie. I didn't. This movie was interesting and fun to watch. Young Han was so cool. Meeting Chewbacca was awesome. Lando was great. The Millennium Falcon intro was great. Ok so now I think there is something wrong with me. I loved this movie. 10x better then the Last Jedi.

    Im surprised to read in the comments that you actually liked it. The movie was a complete cringe-show with the worst dialogues ive seen in my life. On a very good day its an average movie and on a bad day its garbage. They could have done so many things in this movie and yet they delivered this.
    I was never planning to watch it after i saw last jedi and the first reviews that came in but after reading comments around like in this video i said meh lets give it a shot. And imagine i had very low expectations and it still dissappointed me.
    The only way i could enjoy the movie is if i was 13 years old. Thats it i will never trust the reviews in comment sections.

  • Spence Mundorf

    Honestly I liked it. It certainly wasn't a great movie but it's was good for sure. The main cast was pretty fun, there was an unclear villain thing going on although it came off as if it was done on purpose. Now that's not to say that it worked perfectly but it was certainly made to be that way. I liked the scenes with the Empire but we didn't get much of that. Mostly small crime organizations. They were alright but none was shown in a way that made them super badass. Even the most badass characters weren't all the way there. They were just pretty good at what they do. I liked the jokes and Lando was a wonderful time. When it comes down to it, I actually place it at #2 best Disney star wars movie

  • Libby Smith-Hughes and Man-Made Unicorn Man

    You mention that no one asked for this movie. Well nobody asked for Star Wars back in 77'. So there is something the two films have in common.
    Also both surprisingly good. Two for two.
    Also I liked the fact that the villain isn't in your face. Enigmatic right?
    You are going to remember this movie cause it's Star Wars.

    Idk, i finally got convinced to watch it and honestly its imo a good movie. Granted, i only watched the first of the original SW, and i grew up on the prequels, my only real knowledge of Han was lore knowledge, and tfa.. for anyone who’s first starwars movie was tfa, the solo movie made Hans death even more impactful. Also they pretty much shut up the who shot first problem. Hand wouldve because its how he was raised to survive. Rogue one did somethings better but the cast was super forgettable. Vader scene alone upstaged every aspect of that movie. I thought this one stood well by itself. Decent amount of issues tho

    I fell asleep TWICE during the movie, meaning had to watch it over several sessions. Movie was boring and the guy who plays han is literally nothing like him and more like the whiny kid luke skywalker.
    Not against the guy in the star wars verse...but not as Han solo
    Anthony ingruber would have been so much better

    You are fast talking for sure. But right about this movie you are not. For me personally, didn't like it much at the cinema but in repeat viewings on bl u ray, it's actually a really good star wars movie. Better than the prequels, better than SWLJ and as good as Force Awakens.
