Solo: A Star Wars Story did not waste time in making Han Solo as epic as Luke Skywalker, or as heroic as Jyn Erso. Instead it rivets Han's not so humble beginnings in his ambition to fly to the galaxy, and padlocks the core of his friendship with his Wookie co-pilot, Chewbacca, and notorious smuggler, Lando. As he mentioned, "I'm a terrible person.". No he's not but he's as flawed as any other deserter in the Star Wars cinematic universe.
Alden Ehrenreich's young Han may not have totally captured Harrison Ford's essence, but his rowdy and boyish antics somehow works. If anything, he reminds me of a young Leonardo DiCaprio, and that's definitely a compliment. Donald Glover as the original 'Millennium Falcon' owner & Han's smuggling nemesis but eventual sidekick Lando is also fun to watch. So fun, I wouldn't mind another Star Wars story starring Lando but let's not go there when we still have Yoda and Obi Wan. The film also stars Woody Harrelson as the hardworker entrepreneur Tobias Beckett, Emilia Clarke as Qi'ra, Han Solo's childhood friend/girlfriend in their origin planet Corellia, Thandie Newton and Paul Bettany, fresh from MCU.
