Collider’s Steven Weintraub,
I figured if @DisneyStudios was willing to show ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ a few weeks before release it must be good and it absolutely is. Film is a blast and a welcome addition to the Star Wars universe. @RealRonHoward you did a great job. Congrats. pic.twitter.com/1pkWH2y6qE

Thought there is a lot of fun to be had with Solo but I was definitely disappointed. I’m sorry guys! But it seems like there are TONS who loved it. I’m only one opinion.

…and Perri Nemiroff.
There’s some fun to be had with #SoloAStarWarsStory. Ehrenreich was solid and really enjoyed Glover and Waller-Bridge as L3, but not convinced we needed a young Han Solo movie. Was really hoping for higher stakes, more energy and depth.

#SoloAStarWarsStory is reaaaaalllly good. Fun as hell. It’s a straight intergalactic heist movie, kind of refreshing to see a Star Wars movie w/o a Death Star or the rebellion’s fate at stake. Alden Ehrenreich is super impressive as Han, but L3 might be my favorite new character.

Alden Ehrenreich is the real deal, Thandie Newton is who I want to be when I grow up, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s L3… well we’ll talk about that later. 😃 #SoloAStarWarsStory

Alden made for a fine young Han. He’s not the Harrison Ford Han Solo but there are definitely plenty of homages and familiarity. He made it his own. Chewie and Lando are standouts as is Phoebe Waller-Bridge

#SoloAStarWarsStory: It takes a bit for it to find its feet and for AE to turn on enough charm to make you forget he’s not HF. But once it kicks into its hey-let’s-make-a-crew and yes-also-do-a-heist stuff, it totally flies.

So a range of reactions so far, mostly positive… Will be interesting to see more as they come in over the next few days.
Don’t forget the review embargo lifts on 15th of May so it might be worth avoiding the internet until you’ve seen it!
