With Disney pumping out so much Star Wars product, they were bound to crash into a wall at some point and if the reviews are to believed, then SOLO A Star Wars Story is it. At the moment, it has some of the worst reviews I have seen in some months. Now that's not to say that the movie won't be a big success like Rogue One but at the moment SOLO has a lot of heavy lifting to do with the new Jurassic movie fast approaching and which will take a considerable bite (no pun intended) out of its box office.

After Disney's The Last Jedi flopped in China, they decided to drop the Star Wars brand from Solo A Star Wars story in China, re-titling the movie Ranger Solo. So has the strategy worked? Well no, the numbers coming in are even worse than they were for The Last Jedi so expect another Star Wars flop in China.

More reviews for Solo - some not so good, others liked the movie. Spoilers ahead

[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
Solo: A Star Wars Story is the safest, most forgettable Star Wars movie

The box-ticking approach to filling out Han Solo’s backstory is distinctly unimaginative.

Solo: A Star Wars Story — high on adrenaline, low on humour

Donald Glover’s Lando Calrissian Is Getting His Own ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff, Teases Kathleen Kennedy

“We think that the next spinoff will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian,” Kennedy told Premiere. “Of course, there are still many stories to tell about Han and Chewbacca but Lando will be next. “

A new Star Wars movie should be a cause for celebration but behind the scenes its anything but and there are many troubling signs. Still the movie should open in the region of $140-$150 million opening weekend (US & Canada) but if current projections hold, the second weekend is going to be something of a wild card.

Is anyone really desperate to see Solo: A Star Wars Story?

With Solo, the distaste runs deeper. Star Wars fans object to this movie on principle. Much of the controversy around The Last Jedi revolved around Rian Johnson’s willingness to kill his darlings and make bold alterations to the lore of the series. In a similar way, fans consider Ford’s portrayal of the roguish outlaw sacrosanct. To trade in Ford’s craggy visage for a younger model is the equivalent of giving the Millennium Falcon a trendy new paint job and an obtrusive rear spoiler.
