SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (Theatrical Release USA 2018)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

Solo: A Star Wars Story
—all the bells and whistles of a typical Star Wars film—wins on special effects and on the superb casting choice of Alden Ehrenriech as Han Solo. The film does not have the same spirit or force as George Lucas had when presenting the original 6 films of this series. While Director Ron Howard tries, this film seems unrelated to the Star Wars series and must be evaluated as a stand-alone film. It is worth watching and has high entertainment value due to good action scenes and a fair storyline.

Maybe. This film serves as a prequel to the Han Solo character in the episode 4 of the Star Wars series.
