I don't get why the film critics don't like this movie (70% on Rotten Tomatoes)......and I was shocked by the audience score on Rotten Tomatoes being at 61% last time i checked. I loved this movie! loved the character development and it felt very much like star wars to me. Yeah it wasn't as action packed as many of the new era star wars movies are, but it felt more like the original trilogy movies to me. It had great action scenes when they needed to be shown! The Train heist is my favorite sequence in the film period! The war scenes with Han on Mimban were more war film-esque than the scenes from Rogue One which is shot in the style of a war film. I'm not saying Rogue One is bad at all (I rank that movie higher than this one), I'm just saying as far as the gritty nature of war is portrayed in films, Solo pulled it off well in showing basically trench warfare in a dark muddy world where guys are getting blasted left and right. Chewbaccca's intro was great! The music was great also! when Enfys Nest shows up for the first time, the music immediately evoked a sense of dread and suspense that heightened the tension in the train heist action sequence. I loved a lot about this movie! Makes me want to build an all purely scoundrel team in swgoh.
Maul is back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Loved that they showed him in this movie! If anyone has seen Star Wars the Clone Wars TV show you know why and how he got to where we see him in Solo. You owe it to yourself to at least check out the story arcs in Clone Wars where Maul's story is shown, and especially the Mandalore arc. The inclusion of Maul in this movie was a major suprise to me and made me so happy that the movies are showing some love to material developed in Star Wars the Clone wars (similar to how they had Saw Gerrera in rogue One also)
I'd rank this movie as #4 in my list of favorite star wars movies. My top 5 i would say right now is:
1.Empire Strikes Back
3.A New Hope
5. Return of the Jedi
what did everyone else think? How would you rank it among the other star wars movies?
