Solo: A Star Wars Story

The critical consensus

A crackingly enjoyable adventure which frankly deserves full episode status in the great franchise, not just one of these intermittent place-holding iterations.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 15/05/2018

A bright and breezy sideshow adventure makes up for its overly frantic pacing with a charismatic central turn from Alden Ehrenreich — strong enough to make us want to see even more of him in Solo mode.

****(*)Dan Jolin, Empire Online, 15/05/2018

Far better than we had any right to expect. Thrilling set-pieces, spine-tingling iconography and a Han/Chewie bromance to savour.

****(*)Jamie Graham, Total Film, 16/05/2018

Less a movie, more a colouring in exercise.

**(*)(*)(*)Adam Woodward, Little White Lies, 16/05/2018

Delivers exactly what you want and expect from a movie about the young Han Solo.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 15/05/2018

Safely-handled and breathlessly exciting addition to the Star Wars saga, from Ron Howard.

****(*)James Mottram, The List, 17/05/2018

If it offers nothing new, it does what it does with craft and skill. It’s the cinematic equivalent — to paraphrase one character — of a comforting hug from a Wookiee.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 25/05/2018

Despite Alden Ehrenreich’s best Harrison Ford impression, the latest space spin-off feels a little overstretched.
