Strap on a vest and your smirkiest smirk, it’s time for Solo! The first Star Wars title that tells you exactly how high to set your expectations.
It’s also the first Star Wars movie that’s officially a Star Wars Story. It turns out those other Star Wars movies weren’t stories at all, they were cinéma vérité documentaries. Which is really the only explanation for those long C-SPAN style Galactic Senate meetings.
But there’s none of that dullness here! Well, okay, there is, lots of it. But it doesn’t feel like dullness! It’s an action-packed slog to the finish that dutifully checks off Star Wars trivia boxes like “the Kessel Run” and “meeting Lando” and “Han Solo’s famous lucky dice, you know, the dice that he definitely always had and have always been really important to everyone involved.”
It’s got romance, a train chase, endless double-crossing, someone from Game of Thrones, and someone from Cheers. Also, fun new Star Wars facts like “Chewbacca has eaten people, like, a lot of people.” Gotta love him!
Solo: A Star Wars Story proves once and for all that, before he became Harrison Ford, Han Solo was just a young guy doing his best Jack Nicholson impression. Join Mike, Kevin, and Bill and see how it all happened!
