Han Solo Movie Sequel has 'So Many Possibilities'

Solo is the third Star Wars film to appear at Cannes, following Attack of the Clones in 2002 and Revenge of the Sith in 2005.

However, Alden Ehrenreich gives a worthy Solo performance, Donald Glover's Lando is fantastic, and the movie beautifully shot.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is scheduled to release in India on May 25. As it is, "Solo" has the nagging feeling of a missed opportunity. The final result is a fairly entertaining film that is nonetheless completely middle-of-the-road. He's the only person who could sell a stand-alone Han Solo movie. He is in love with beautiful Qi'ra (Emilia Clarke) and they plan to bribe officials with a stolen phial of ultra-valuable fuel crystal Coaxium to get smuggled out. They finally have a moment to escape, but at the last minute Qi'ra is caught, while Solo runs free.

As with most Star Wars films, I enjoyed the droids. To placate Vos, they must get it from somewhere else.

It's sort of a shame movies can't just exist in a vacuum without the added baggage of often troubled productions or studio interference. This is the first Star Wars movie where it hasn't felt like it's being crushed by the portentous weight of what's to come. Of course, their journey is one of epic proportions with double-crossing, lots of action and a surprise cameo at the end of the film. But at first it looks as if they've really pulled it off.

I'm actually not surprised the score is so low as it follows the Disney Star Wars movies, which haven't been all that good, and it follows Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which was simply terrible.

The story is not awful but it also isn't great.

Nothing is going to wipe that smug grin off of Han Solo's face.

"A flawed yet fun and fast-paced space adventure, Solo: A Star Wars Story should satisfy newcomers to the saga as well as longtime fans who check their expectations at the theater door".

If you were to pitch a Han Solo spin-off that takes place ahead of Episode IV, just what do you think it would cover? Nearly like a 'Catch Me If You Can. There are some fine action sequences, and some that don't make much sense at all. When "Solo" manages to come to crackling life, it's thanks to a droid called L3-37, voiced with irrepressible wit and gusto by the brilliant British screenwriter Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Most Star Wars fans won't know what the film is like until it releases on May 25th, 2018. Ultimately, she isn't given enough to do. In fact, the movie seems perfectly created to win back those who were upset by the visionary The Last Jedi's devastatingtwists and turns.

To be sure, "Solo" doesn't break new boundaries like "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" did, but at the same time, it's far less likely to raise the ire of hardcore fans.

This approach works for Marvel because it apes the nature of comic books, which constantly feature crossovers and elaborate word-building, but Star Wars has a different duty, and confusing things too much only serves to ostracize those who haven't understood every detail of this world.

In between these shoot-em-ups, Han makes a dash from his grey, industrialised home planet, enlists in and then deserts from the Empire's army, joins a band of robbers, and makes an impressive number of new friends; considering that the film is entitled Solo, it's remarkable how little time its protagonist spends alone.

As far back as he can remember, Redmond Bacon always wanted to be a film critic.
