Trivia

During the train robbery scene early in the movie, as Chewbacca is dangling over the side, he has to be hauled back in just before a large triangular rock would hit him. This mirrors a scene in Indiana Jones: The Last Crusade, in which Indiana Jones, played by original Han Solo Harrison Ford, is dangling from a tank and must recover before hitting a similarly placed rock.

Goofs

In the second poker game, why would Lando put up the Millennium Falcon a second time when Han never gave him the star ship he lost in the first game? Also why did no one accuse Han of cheating when he pulled out a card he had hidden, the one he swiped from Lando, when it clearly had not been dealt to him. See more »

A non-hateful Star Wars fan who liked it
6 August 2018 | by poopvilleSee all my reviews

So I am of the generation who got to experience Star Wars feom the beginning. Standing in a crazy ling line, literally wrapped around the local theater back in 1977 as a kid. Totally unaware I was about to see a movie that would become my central interest for all my childhood, early teens and once again as an adult. And all these years later, able to share this fandom with my own son. I liked Solo. I wouldn't say it's my favorite but it was a fun ride and it evoked the feelings that I associate with Stat Wars. The world and characters felt right. It showed us some cool new things about life in that world, living under the Empire. The amazing cityscapes of Corellia... It felt similar to me to Rogue One. Modern filmmaking techniques yet convincingly evoking the vibes of the classic Star Wars world. Anyway, I just wanted to put in some positive review for this movie to contrast this strange wave of hate feom "fans" on here. I don't really understand it. I have liked something about every Star Wars movie there has been. Some are better than others. There are weaker moments in every one to be sure. But none are worth the irrational seeming hate some people are putting out there. Solo is good and worth your time if you like Star Wars. Just one fan's opinion.
