I think if the writers Jonathan (The First Time) and Lawrence Kasdan (Wyatt Earp) and George Lucas (Raiders if the Lost Ark), had taken more risks, the character would be more interesting and resemble Harrison Ford's Han Solo more.
One of the most memorable aspects of the character from the original trilogy was the way in which he believably evolved from an out-for-himself scoundrel and mercenary to a hero of the Rebel Alliance worthy of Princess Leia; this origin movie delivers no such satisfying arc of redemption or fall from grace. Much has already been said about how cool Glover looks as Lando, and I can confirm that he does indeed end up providing some of the film's best moments. Instead, the most iconic character of the "Star Wars" universe is now in a movie that's only marginally entertaining - and that's a shame. "Take the strong out of it. Find another adjective, dammit!" Han's Dickensian youth just doesn't carry as much weight as the storytellers might have imagined. Ron Howard is Solo's credited director, but we all know he didn't start out that way, and I confess to spending the first little bit of Solo trying to spot the joints.
Han's first meeting with Chewbacca starts with the big ol' Wookiee almost killing him, and quickly progresses from alliance to true friendship. Thandie's stylist Erin Walsh explained how the gown came about in a post on Instagram, revealing the 45-year-old wanted to celebrate the diversity of the sci-fi franchise and her landmark casting in the new film. The role is not dissimilar from those Harrelson previously played in the Hunger Games franchise or Zombieland. With the exception of one or two lines that anticipate the title character's future adventures, the proceedings have the perfunctory air of biting into the aforementioned apple, and taking tasteful, unobjectionable nibbles. When their paths cross again - this time at a cocktail bash hosted by arch-villain Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany) - the times, and the equations, have changed beyond recognition. He is in love with handsome Qi'ra (Emilia Clarke) and they plan to bribe officials with a stolen phial of ultra-valuable fuel crystal Coaxium to get smuggled out. Han makes the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs! Her bond with Lando in particular is both hilarious and daring and will surely provoke many conversations.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi has a healthy 91 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, although it got divisive opinions by average movie goers.
Do you want to see a Lando movie? He captures the wry wit and gunslinger swagger, mirroring enough of Ford's mannerisms to be familiar yet he also manages to not simply be a mere mimic by lending the character a dopey sweetness and vulnerability not always evident in Ford's version.
We also see how Solo got involved with intergalactic gambler Lando Calrissian, played by Donald Glover (Billy Dee Williams in the original film) and how he won the Millennium Falcon from him in a bet. Writes Entertainment Weekly, "Speaking of Glover, it's no spoiler to say that the Atlanta star is easily the best thing in this good-not-great movie".
"Solo" of course has a number of massive, rapid-fire CGI action sequences, sometimes accompanied by snippets of the famous "Star Wars" theme. And although this was an unprecedented shakeup for the Star Wars franchise, Howard found a way to bring everyone together and finish the highly anticipated blockbuster.
