An emotionally satisfying experience that brings to life a group of appealing characters and allows them to grow and expand in front of the lens.
The prioritization of highlighting moments of "Star Wars" lore over telling a compelling story makes "Solo" feel overlong and anticlimactic.
Not a bad movie but the passage of time hasn’t been kind to it. The things that made it popular upon its release either don’t apply or don’t work for a 2018 audience.

Its ability to tickle the funny bone and warm the heart allow it to work as a traditional rom-com even if the participants are older than is the norm for the genre.
This clumsy, straightforward caper comedy is neither funny nor clever and leaves no lasting impression beyond the desire to warn people to stay away.

Despite lacking the freshness of 2016 feature, the sequel is funny, energetic, and determined not to take itself seriously.
Showing great restraint and refusing to demonize the closed community in which the story transpires, director Sebastian Lelio has tackled the age-old tale of forbidden love and its implications.
Too dispiriting to be painful and too pointless to deserve the effort necessary for an additional word of opprobrium.
The strength of the stylistic elements and Robbie’s performance aren’t sufficient to overcome the deficiencies of an initially derivative and ultimately off-kilter narrative.
A nicely twisty thriller replete with Hitchcockian elements that is spoiled by the string of thriller clichés resulting in a lackluster ending.
