What a pleasant surprise!
Childish Gambino, Donald Glover as Lando, Woody Harrelson and voices are manipulated to sound like original charector- actors in 6,7,8. I heard all others before & after original suck so I stick to the ones made in the 1970’s do Solo is such a pleasant surprise. goes with original script, yea George Lucas! Too bad his daughter decided to join the porn industry

I delayed watching this film because so many people said it was awful. But I really liked it.
The sets and special effects are great, the acting is well done, the casting is good, and the story is interesting.
It offers a pretty believable backstory of how a teenaged-ish orphan became Han Solo. A lot of people seem to only see the casual, superficial smuggler who is older Han Solo, but not so far beneath that surface is a lonely man who was hurt badly, deeply, and finds it hard to trust others... which is touched on in this film.
Young Han isn't old Han, and shouldn't be expected to be: Alden Ehrenreich as young Han is trying to find his footing as a young man, and begins his journey to become the older Harrison Ford Han we got to know and love (or at least like).
The twists and turns in this film are well done, the pace is good, and there are some lighter moments (but not LOL moments) that are worth waiting for.
Han, played to perfection by Alden Ehrenreich, has to steal to feed himself on the rough streets of an over-industrialised planet. He dreams of a better life. A life as a pilot. With the love of his life, Qira, at his side. Soon, he and Qira are about to escape, but things start to go wrong. Fast. They're being chased, and...
How do they escape? At what cost? How does Han meet Chewbacca? Does Han end up working for the Rebels or for the Empire? What happens to Qira? Does Han really win the Millennium Falcon in a card game? Can Han speak Wookie? Is Lando a little too fond of his android? Is Han really a great pilot? You'll have to watch this film to find out!

Quite possibly the worst Star Wars film ever made.

Firstly, the original directors (21 Jump Street) given the green light for this project were unceremoniously canned mid-production and replaced by Ron Howard because the producers didn't like the zany campy raunchy politically incorrect intergalactic road trip movie they were making which I believe would have been a much more entertaining vehicle befitting the actual character of Hans Solo.

Secondly, the actor who was poorly cast as the lead character was so stiff, humorless, anonymous and completely lacking in charisma and star quality that the film was basically doomed from the start. At best this actor should be playing minor characters on screen like the son of a blacksmith in Game of Thrones.

Overall, a middling movie. You would be better off watching CGI Star Wars series like The Clone Wars or Star Wars Rebels which have far superior storylines and character development. Thanks.

Entertaining, especially, for the fans.
Who doesn't like Chewbacca!

This started off at a good pace with an interesting storyline and then fell into franchise predictability and mediocrity. Oh well, at least there were great sets and Ron Howard's direction was spot on.

I watched the first Star Wars movie (Episode 4) the week that it was released in Canada. It was the best. I have seen them all since, with each one a step down from its predecessor. This episode gives a back story for Han, Chewie, and the Millennium Falcon. It adds absolutely nothing, apart from a cantankerous female robots' liberationist, who I loved, but whom gets killed off.

36 quotes IMDb and surprised that this one is not in it as of today:

I'm an outlaw. ... What? I'm not kidding.
-Okay. Okay, outlaw, you can tell yourself that, but I might be the only person in the whole galaxy who knows what you really are.
Yeah. What's that?
-You are the good guy.
