With the emerging demand of hyperfuel and other resources, Han Solo finds himself in the middle of a heist alongside other criminals, where they meet the likes of Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian in an adventurous situation exposing the criminal underworld.
When Beckett, Qi'Ra, and Han discuss Imperial stashes of hyperfuel that they could steal, they mention Scarif, the Imperial planet that houses the plans for the Death Star in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016). See more »
Unrefined coaxium can be stored without problem on Kessel, but not on the Millennium Falcon. If it can't be stored stably for very long in either location, a refining facility on Kessel must exist where the coaxium is refined and stabilized soon after it is mined. Alternatively, a refining facility exists closer to Kessel. Either way, it would seem to be easier to attack and steal from that refining facility than from the mine itself.
The unrefined coaxium on Kessel is in a cold storage room, something the Falcon doesn't have. That's the only reason why the coaxium heats up and causes a problem. See more »

It's the same as every other generic CGI-fest movie that comes out of Hollywood every week
Really, there's nothing special here. Solo: A Star Wars Story is just another movie in the ocean of bad ones that tries to aim for the lowest common denominator in order to bring some bucks for the studio behind it, while it also shamelessly tries to capitalize on the Star Wars name that seen better days.
It doesn't have a clear vision - hell, it doesn't have any at all. The pacing of it is all over the place. The story is cliched, weak, it lacks a strong direction. The jokes most of the time fall flat - most of the time they do not work or feel inappropriate and forced. Also the movie's tone is quite inconsistent, while the actors don't really do a convincing job portraying their characters either.
This movie sums up perfectly what Star Wars has become. What once was the holy grail of pop-culture and a shining beacon of hope that showed how mass-appealing movies can carry just as important messages as art-house movies and dramas, turned into something that's anything but reminiscent of Star Wars. It feels like a 4 days old dry burger from a fast-food restaurant that was halfly chewed and spitted out.
There's only one good thing in this movie that leads to my two star rating: as much as it tried through it's entire runtime, it wasn't able to spin SW in the mud the way The Last Jedi did. This movie just wasn't able to be as disrespectful to the world and characters of Star Wars and to it's fans as The Last Jedi was. Because making such an unbelievably bad and insulting movie takes true talent - that the 'masterminds' behind Solo (fortunately) did not have. Or maybe it just wasn't able to make things worse, because Rian Johnson already killed the Star Wars movies, at least in my eyes.
