    "Solo: A Star Wars Story"

    135 minutes long. Staring Emilia Clarke & Aiden Ehrenreich.

    The first Star Wars offering that I've watched from start to finish.

    I have to say I enjoyed it!

    I like Ron Howard as a director and enjoy most of his films.

    The special effects were as you'd expect and there was a reasonable plot and story line.

    Nice one; I had wondered what it was like. I did not like the first Disney Starwars film (Rogue One?), as I thought it was a bit tedious. I'd hoped the ones that followed would be better!

    I watched half of this film yesterday (baby Aston woke at the halfway point and stopped the film for the rest of the evening!).

    I have to say, what I saw, was very enjoyable.

    For fans of the old films, it has that slightly odd feel to it in comparison with the classics. The music almost seems to take over the film a bit too much, and the action seems to keep going with no natural breaks sometimes. I cannot put my finger on what is wrong but it just seems a to flow a little strangely - almost as though it was made by someone with ADHD. It also seems to be made more for Children than the older films; but it is a Disney film, so I suppose that's expected.

    One characters odd "suicide" did not quite make sense, I would have re-written that part of the plot to flow a bit better - I'll not say more, otherwise I shall spoil it for others!... but it did remind me of the bonkers Han Solo moment in the first Disney Starwars film, which was also very badly thought out.

    The actors/actresses are well chosen, and suit the film really well.

    I'm looking forward to the second half tonight!!
    Regards

    I enjoyed this film too, a space heist done well. Woody Harrison plays a good part and the 12 parsecs falcon scene is finally shown.

    I think that part was just coming up.... They had just dropped out of hyperspace when I had to pause...

    I watched this a couple of weeks ago with my 8 year old daughter, we both enjoyed it. Up until recently it was all Disney princesses and now she is going as Darth Vader for Halloween!
