Solo: A Star Wars Story ★★★★

This isn't really worth four stars, but I did enjoy it, even with it's many faults.

This was never really about Han Solo for me, it was all about Chewbacca and he doesn't disappoint. I would have prefered more of their story and less with Qi'ra, but I suppose a romantic interest is obligatory these days. The cast are great and very likeable, although I've never been a fan of Paul Bettany, here he seems to be channelling Christopher Walken and I couldn't help thinking how much better he would have been in the role.

The effects and locations are all the ususal high Star Wars standard. There were a bit too many fanboy references and some of them bogged down the story. Overall, I had a lot of fun, but it's not particularly memorable!
