Solo: A Star Wars Story
DIRECTOR Ron Howard
CAST Alden Ehrenreich, Thandie Newton, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover
Alden Ehrenreich plays a young Han Solo as he joins a gang of galactic smugglers attempting to pull off a lucrative heist, meeting some familiar faces along the way.
The galaxy’s best-loved scoundrel returns to our screens with this space-set action adventure. Ehrenreich cuts a fine figure as a young Han Solo, who is recruited to carry out a dangerous heist, making new friends along the way – furry future co-pilot Chewbacca and charismatic cardshark Lando Calrissian (Glover). If you’ve always wondered how Han acquired his beloved spaceship, the Millennium Falcon, then look no further…
(2018 USA 135 mins)
It’s a slick, swift-footed adventure which plays like a planet-hopping heist movie, and one which glides a long way on the charm of its leading man … The fans will feel generously serviced by the sequence in which Han and Chewie (now fully in the hands of Finnish actor Joonas Suotamo) first meet, tussling in a mud pit before joining forces against their tormentors. Watching their increasingly syncopating relationship develop is one of the movie’s biggest joys, Chewbacca quickly falling into place as Han’s towering, hairy conscience. Dan Jolin, Empire
