Trivia

Jamie Costa, who portrayed Han Solo in the short film Han Solo: A Smuggler's Trade (2016), wanted to play Han Solo in this film. Interestingly enough, he posted a video of himself "auditioning" for the role on his YouTube channel. See more »

Goofs

The various card players all hold their hands very loose, which would allow people behind them to see their cards (and possibly communicate this information to the other players). Experienced card players glance briefly at their cards and leave them on the table.

While an Earthling Poker Player may consider this a goof, the rules of Sabacc may require the players to hold their cards off the table, or with the advanced technology of the series they may consider it worthless to keep the cards down since technology would allow the cards to be seen from any angle, as well as through the table.

Shooting Game for Star Wars Fans
27 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) is a shooting game for Star Wars fans rather than cinematic storytelling. The story line is quite simple but boring.

Han Solo meets Chewbacca and Lando to get smuggler business of hyper fuel done. However, they decide not turn it to evil dark side at the end. Alden Ehrenreich's acting is ordinary but it is quite acceptable. Audiences expected there would be some familiar actors in this Disney Star Wars marketing product however I unfortunately could not find Harrison Ford in this film. I remember there was his credit in online data but it had gone. Ron Howard's directing had editorial support from Pietro Scalia. What factor made this product dull and boring? That must be the story, screenplay. Is there any dramatic moment in this film? I think that is when tragedy of Solo and Qi'ra happens at expositional sequence at the beginning.

The worst moment is miracle of Solo easily reencountering Qi'ra. This plot defect failed the dramatic dynamics of the entire film and made it extremely boring. I'm sorry, in my mind, true Han Solo is only Harrison Ford. Only Harrison can make this film successful! My rating is 2 out of 10. 1 for Pietro Scalia, and the other for tragedy of Solo and Oi'ra.

Anyway, there is a translational gag for this film that Solo in Chinese means Soros the neoliberal demon. Thus, Chinese translation of this film is Han Solo (Han Suoluo). It is a great job to mention in this review.
