Director Ron Howard’s Solo: A Star Wars Story is a fun adventure for Star Wars fans and anyone who enjoys action films.
Here, you meet the characters from previous Star Wars adventures as they begin their careers and connect with each other. Alden Ehrenreich as Hans Solo and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbaca meet Emilia Clarke as Qi'ra and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, with Woody Harrelson and Paul Bettany playing the heavies.
The action and effects are top notch and support from actress Erin Kellyman adds to the fun with her surprise unmasking.
However, the film’s tension is diminished as it is in all prequels from the fact you know the principal characters will survive for subsequent adventures.
Still, Solo: A Star Wars Story deserves the applause it was given by the fan base.
I give it a 3.9 out of 5.
