The SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY Reactions are in and it Sounds Like a Winner!
Solo: A Star Wars Story premiered last night and the initial reactions have flooded social media! In case you're wondering what people thought, for the most part, it sounds like Star Wars fans are going to enjoy it! The movie received a good amount of high praise from those who had a chance to see. There are a few people that did have issues with it, but some things that almost everyone agrees on is that the movie is a blast and Donald Glover as Han Solo is one of the best parts of the film. There are even some people who praise Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, which is great to hear! A lot of people were worried about his portrayal of the iconic character.
I'm actually going to see the movie later tonight and after reading all of this great buzz, I'm pretty stoked! I'm just a huge Star Wars fan. I've been a fan since I was a kid, so of course I'm going to be excited about Ron Howard's Solo film! It's a Star Wars movie! How can I not be excited!?
You can check out a bunch of Twitter reactions for the film below. Are you surprised that the movie is getting a lot of love from the critics? Do you think fans and audiences will feel the same way about the movie?
#Solo was a blast. The Kasdans nail the character of Han Solo. Yes, the story is a series of expected events (Han meets chewie....etc) but none of them happen as expected. Stay away from spoilers, big Marvel-level shit that will make you wonder where Lucasfilm is headed next.— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) May 11, 2018
It’s hard not to laugh at Becket telling Han before a heist to stick to the plan and absolutely no improvising, seems like a meta commentary on the production problems. Regardless of any of the production problems, the finished film is going to make most fans happy.— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) May 11, 2018
So, I was REALLY worried about #SoloAStarWarsStory but those concerns are totally laid to rest. A movie for fans AND those totally fresh to the Star Wars franchise. Heart, humor and a Falcon full of top notch action. From a worry to a favorite. Very, very happy! pic.twitter.com/VhvBSDFvjE— Simon Thompson (@ShowbizSimon) May 11, 2018
I loved #SoloAStarWarsStory so much. It’s a western. A caper. Funny with so much heart. It’s got so much surprises that fans are going to love. Donald Glover is charming x1000. Alden Ehrenreich is a great #HanSolo and just know I’ve been saying this for years! Fave new #StarWars.— Michelle Buchman (@michelledeidre) May 11, 2018
I figured if @DisneyStudios was willing to show 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' a few weeks before release it must be good and it absolutely is. Film is a blast and a welcome addition to the Star Wars universe. @RealRonHoward you did a great job. Congrats. pic.twitter.com/1pkWH2y6qE— Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) May 11, 2018
Another thing about 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' that really stood out are the action set pieces. They were GREAT and so well choreographed.— Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) May 11, 2018
Also thought Alden Ehrenreich was perfectly cast as Han Solo. Trust me entire cast was fantastic. Can't wait to see it again. pic.twitter.com/Sh5IC8qnSF
He shows up about halfway through and is then a strong supporting player. Glover is GREAT.— Kate Erbland (@katerbland) May 11, 2018
The first act of SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY can be hit and miss clunky. But once Donald Glover's Lando shows up (who is legit fantastic) and the Kessel Run heist plot kicks in, it's a whole lot of fun. (And those who've always wanted a Han and Chewbacca shower scene are in luck.)— Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) May 11, 2018
#SoloAStarWarsStory is reaaaaalllly good. Fun as hell. It’s a straight intergalactic heist movie, kind of refreshing to see a Star Wars movie w/o a Death Star or the rebellion’s fate at stake. Alden Ehrenreich is super impressive as Han, but L3 might be my favorite new character.— Kevin Polowy (@djkevlar) May 11, 2018
