I just watched "Solo"
3 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just watched "Solo", and I don't think it's as bad as some reviewers have suggested. Of course, I'm not an action movie aficionado, so I have no preconceived preferences for Arnie, Sly, etc. I simply found the movie an enjoyable, maybe mindless, hour-and-a-half. Mario van Peebles did his best to present himself as a cyborg with human tendencies. Barry Corbin is always enjoyable when in his Maurice Minnifield persona. Adrien Brody is wonderfully emotive as the scientist who cares about his creation. My only question, after watching the movie, is how Solo continues to survive without anyone to repair his power management chip.
