Retains the edge-of-the-seat and nihilistic qualities of its predecessor, but there are shifts to the overall tone, which is neither as stark nor as ominous.

A simple story with lots of visual pizzazz and little in the way of complexity or intelligence is a great way to lure viewers of all nationalities into theaters.

The prioritization of highlighting moments of "Star Wars" lore over telling a compelling story makes "Solo" feel overlong and anticlimactic.

Although the production is too long and overreaches, it has a bizarre, crazy appeal that’s difficult to shrug off.

The biggest crime of "The Spy Who Dumped Me" isn’t its dearth of humor or reliance on an unimaginative espionage plot but the way it wastes the talents of its leads.

One of the bleakest films of 2018 and shouldn’t be seen by anyone expecting a few lighthearted jump-scares.

Like all B-movies, this one provides moments of visceral satisfaction while ignoring nuance and (at times) logic.

A perfect example of ‘80s fantasy in every way – targeted toward children, unremarkable, and ultimately disappointing.
