I loved #SoloAStarWarsStory so much. It’s a western. A caper. Funny with so much heart. It’s got so much surprises that fans are going to love. Donald Glover is charming x1000. Alden Ehrenreich is a great #HanSolo and just know I’ve been saying this for years! Fave new #StarWars.

Even people who seemed critical of some aspects of the film still gave a positive review overall.
#SoloAStarWarsStory: It takes a bit for it to find its feet and for AE to turn on enough charm to make you forget he’s not HF. But once it kicks into its hey-let’s-make-a-crew and yes-also-do-a-heist stuff, it totally flies.

The first act of SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY can be hit and miss clunky. But once Donald Glover's Lando shows up (who is legit fantastic) and the Kessel Run heist plot kicks in, it's a whole lot of fun. (And those who've always wanted a Han and Chewbacca shower scene are in luck.)

Solo endured quite a bit of controversy in the lead up to its release. The film was originally written and directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who are best known as the brains behind the Lego movie franchise. But near the end of filming, Lord and Miller were fired and replaced by renowned director Ron Howard.
There were then rumors that the film’s tone was being adjusted, as well as gossip that an acting coach was brought in to help some of the lead performers hone their chemistry.
But despite all this drama, it appears that the film came together in the end and will become another solid Star Wars addition.
