Goofs

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 »

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.
