    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    ★★½

    While "Solo: A Star Wars Story" is much better and entertaining than its behind the scenes drama would suggest, it is an underwhelming and unremarkable corporate product that lacks identity.

    While the characters are more rounded and charismatic that in other Disney era Star Wars films, there is no proper character arc or story to speak of. Yes, there is a plot and some character beats but no real drama. Like with "The Last Jedi" when the end credits roll…

    ★★

    Lets put all those fans vs critics speculations aside for a minute.

    Objectively "Star Wars The Lest jedi" is not a good movie. Like "The Force Awakens" it feels very redundant and remakes episodes IV, V and VI once again. While it tries to add clever twists into the mix, it all feels forced and unearned.

    The tone is all over the place, characters (besides maybe those featured in the original trilogy) are flat and underdeveloped, character motivations remain obtuse…
