Solo episode
2 June 2018 | by BiiivALSee all my reviews

On the new opus of the mouse house in the Star Wars universe I loved since childhood, I did not go immediately. I did not read the reviews, but I heard about the fact that the studio bosses are not very satisfied with the cashier of the film, because Salon solo expectations (sorry for the pun) were not justified.

Personally, I liked it, but there are reservations.

The plot is clear and digestible. There are no illogicalities and strange twists. Pianos, too, really one moment in the end (more precisely the appearance) of me (yes, I think most) surprised. Hint on the continuation of the story prequel Solo? Well I do not know. There is a problem with the arches of the heroes, especially with the line of the protagonist - he shows us from the middle point. There was no need to remove it from the young nails, but there was a lack of disclosure.

It is important to note that in contrast to the serious "Outcast", humor appeared here. Relevant and adequate. To become a protagonist. And there are no excesses.

Howard promised us fantasy with a touch of a criminal film. And this promise was kept. Even overfulfilled! In the film, there are notes of a western - robbery, chases, dashing guys. Not to mention some of the mise-en-scenes characteristic of the genre. And this greatly pleased me.

In addition to westerns, there are a lot of Easter eggs for other films - I personally saw the "Army of the Dead" and "The Empire Strikes Back." With fanservisom managed to cheer.

That did not work with Khan. It is clear that the second Harison Ford can be obtained only by cloning, and then there are no guarantees. But somehow Alden does not stretch. Too so cute, and charisma is not enough. So harrowing young Solo, and not a brave captain-smuggler Solo. Eh. But Harelson and Bethany pleased so pleased. Suppose that the second does not have much screen time, but he used them in full. It's a pity that other directors, unlike Howard, do not notice him. Clarke. c. a. the Dragon Mammon? Yes, as always, no! I actually do not understand why she was loved in the Thrones? Quasi is cute, a doll with a doll and a game of eyebrows. Not ice.

In the end, we got a good movie no worse, but not better than "Outcast". It turned out to be a kind of western in the network of Star Wars with good humor, but with a bad actor in the title role and strange story arches.

It's strange and not clear - what rejected the audience? Disappointment with the 8th episode and the mouse house?

I want to believe that the universe has potential! And the invitation of such craftsmen as Howard will contribute to good films in the lineup.
