I gave the film a 7/10. It was certainly fun and I enjoyed watching it. But nothing of real consequence happened and we don't know why Han became Han. This was basically the adventures of Young Han Solo.
I thought this was far better than Rouge One and the Prequel Trilogy except for Revenge of The Sith.
Last films watched: The Story of Louis Pasteur (1936) 9/10 Dr. Strangelove (1964) 10/10 Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988) 6/10 Manhunter (1986) 10/10 Evangelion 2.22: You Can (Not) Advance (2009) 8/10
You're not wrong. As I said in my rate movie thread reply, this might be the first SW ever without silly or stupid jokes injected, because it's already a family friendly film. There's no stupid joke quota to fill because the whole movie is essentially a Saturday morning tv cartoon.
It's probably only better than The Phantom Menace & The Last Jedi for me.
As much as I like The Force Awakens and (reluctantly less so) The Last Jedi, and mainly for the return of the original actors at that, this had more of the original Star Wars spirit and feel than either of those films.
I enjoyed it even more than Rogue One, as good as that is.
I haven't experienced this many rip-roaring goosebumps and chills in a Star Wars movie, let alone many movies, as I did with this movie -- TWICE.
A lot of great, thrilling, iconic moments -- Han meeting Chewie, Han and Chewie meeting Lando, Han and Chewie meeting the Millenium Falcon, every scene with the Falcon (especially the Kessel Run and how the Falcon gets that gap in the front), Han winning the Falcon from Lando, the return of the new but familiar Phantom Menace.
Even the moments that are original to this film (in terms of the Star Wars cinematic universe) are thrilling -- the escape from Corellia, the war scenes, the train heist, the Maruaders, the crime syndicates.
This is far superior to even the new Star Trek movies.
Very much looking forward to more Solo screen adventures.
