Solo is the scruffy looking smuggler’s tale I hoped for when I entered the theater. The story is entertaining. The cast is solid from top to bottom, and the star did as well as anyone could’ve asked filling the shoes of an icon.
I’ll admit, after the stink bomb that was The Last Jedi, I really didn’t have much expectations for this one. Maybe that’s why I was so pleasantly surprised by it. Is it the greatest Star Wars film of all time? Not by a long shot. However, for my money it’s the best of the bunch behind Rogue One since Disney took over the franchise.
Well done, Ron Howard. You made Star Wars fun again.
Cheers, y’all. Have a great Memorial Day weekend and talk soon.
