Synopsis

Young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) and his girlfriend, Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke), go on the run in order to escape their lives as slaves. Just as they're about to make it, Qi'ra is caught, while Han goes free. Unable to return for her without being killed, Han vows to find her as soon as he's able. He joins the Imperial Army as a pilot, but they soon demote him to foot soldier when he proves unable to obey commands. He meets a criminal named Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) and asks to join his gang, but Beckett doesn't want him. He points Han out to the authorities, who throw him in a pit with a "beast" for disobeying orders. 

As it turns out, the "beast" is Chewbacca. The two escape and find Beckett. Beckett relents and takes the two of them on. It turns out that Beckett has an assignment to steal valuable goods for crime boss and notorious gangster, Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany). 

In need of a ship, Solo and Beckett seek out Captain Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover), who owns the Millennium Falcon. Calrissian, along with his droid companion and co-pilot, L3-37 (Phoebe Waller-Bridge), accompany Solo and his crew on their daring escapades deep within the dangerous criminal underworld.

  • 2 stars "Wow! Yet another dismal series of explosions, mass killings and 'special effects'. Take away the computer generated effects and you have - not much. Tried to keep track of the number of people and 'things' killed but got bored doing so. Shocked that some parents brought their 3 and 4 year old children to see this mindlessness."
  • 3 stars "Visually great. But story-wise ... how they managed to cram all of Han's achievements & highlights in his life before "A New Hope" in about a week of movie time is preposterous. What else is there for him to show in a movie to make up for the next decade or so he lived? Nothing's left (unless you want to see some smuggling for the Hutt cartel - that's about it). Youth: Well that went down the drain fast - literally. Couldn't even bother having a younger version for a bit. Imperial Academy days: would have been so nice to see. Kessel: Spice mines? What spice mines? No mention here."
  • 5 stars "I hope the make another Solo movie."
