Mondo Cinema’s review published on Letterboxd:
I believe there may be something to this toxic fan argument.
Solo is not the horrible movie some make it out to be. There were a few cringe moments, the music score did not seem to fit, and there was a little to much fan service for my tastes.
Over all though, I enjoyed this, I liked the heist aspect, the train sequence was some of the best Star Wars has to offer, Donald Glover was great as Lando. That Imperial battle in the mud really captures the imagination.
The key here is to not boycott a film or just assume its terrible because it was not made exactly how you want it, the story does not go as you would have told it, or they did not cast the actors you wanted. All you do is set yourself up to be disappointed by pretty much anything.
Mondo Cinema out....
