Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) "Stick to the plan. Do not improvise."
10 December 2018
And again there's massive bashing of a good movie out of sheer stubbornness of hardcore fans of the original trilogy. Guys, you cannot expect new movies to be the same as "Star Wars" from 1977. It's been almost half a century since then and everything has changed. New writers, new directors, new actors, and new technologies simply cannot be the same as the old ones. True, I too feel that Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo could not hold a candle to Harrison Ford, but Ford is an old man now and he cannot play in Han Solo origins movie. Be honest and admit that the problem isn't in Alden and that your reaction would be the same whoever they took for the role of Han. Ron Howard is a good director, the film stars Emilia Clarke, Paul Bettany, Donald Glover, and the awesome Woody Harrelson, CGI is good, music is better, and action keeps you at the edge of the seat. The story is nothing spectacular, but it is well connected with the franchise, answers many questions about Han's origins (where did he come from, how did he become what he is, how did he team up with Chewbacca, how did he acquire Millennium Falcon) and, the most important, the movie has the spirit of "Star Wars". To me, time flew by and I'm sorry there isn't more to see.
