Even Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, admitted in interviews that he wasn't too pleased by the way his character had changed since the 1980s.

There's a terrific ensemble cast-dynamic and an effortless channelling of the spirit of Episodes IV to VI from father-and-son screenwriting team Lawrence and Jonathan Kasdan who should really be allowed to get their teeth into the stories' daddy issues and Freudian anxieties. Or how about, "How old is Chewbacca?" These questions will likely be answered in Lando; the only other question now is just who and how many are interested in finding out the answers.

Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. When they are separated at the gates of freedom, he vows he will do all he can to accomplish his goal and come back to rescue her.

The bar was set high for Ehrenreich, who steps into Harrison Ford's shoes to play the young Han Solo, but his efforts paid off. Harrison Ford was always the ideal person to play Solo: an actor who didn't really want the gig that bad in the first place and thought the whole thing was stupid.

BOTTOM LINE The brightest character in the "Star Wars" universe gets a lackluster spin-off. Unfortunately, I can't say that I did.

Collider Solo is technically a Star Wars movie, but it's one that has set pieces in place of a personality. You can see a little bit, but it's certainly not almost as egregious as Justice League, the new gold standard of Frankensteined blockbusters. We catch him only after he has become a strapping lad gutsy enough to take on the crime syndicates that have run amok on Planet Corellia. There's a noirish shade to the romance between Solo and his onetime girlfriend Qi'ra (Emilia Clarke), who takes up with the ruthless overlord Dryden Vos (an enjoyable Paul Bettany). I don't know what sort of "lieutenant" dresses as she does at that time of the day. "But The Wrap does single out Donald Glover's turn as Lando Calrissian for praise: "... He looks good, can play the part but, if it went on any longer and it would have been on the borderline of becoming a caricature of the original character. "RT's synopsis of the critics' aggregate opinion is that Solo is a "flawed yet fun and fast-paced space adventure" that will" satisfy newcomers to the saga as well as longtime fans who check their expectations at the theater door".

"I'm not naturally aggressive as a human and I found conflict in the workplace incredibly hard because I get emotional". But having seen it, I urge you to avoid them at all costs.

Solo: A Star Wars story brightens up a little in the second half, both visually and in terms of plot momentum. Oh there are references-ho ho ho, don't think there aren't copious, winky references, but they're in-jokes rather than any of the "Dun Dun Dun" grave nods to stuff that's coming, as happened in Rogue One and literally all of the prequels. The film also continues the franchise's renewed interest in practical effects, making this once again feel like a lived-in world populated by "real" creatures and "working" vehicles and droids. It felt very much like 2 hours and 23 minutes of a supporting character's filler storyline when it should have felt like a stand alone film. The film, which opens May 25, also does its best to overcome the inherent problems of a prequel where the audience already knows how the story ends.
