“The early scenes are incredibly dark, literally. Shot by cinematographer Bradford Young, it’s an interesting aesthetic choice, likely meant to lend a vintage vibe.”

Unlike a character from a book or a play, Han Solo didn't exist outside of Harrison Ford, and the two are now linked by over 40 years of goodwill and nostalgia.The man who took the job, Alden Ehrenreich, does not look or sound like Ford, and it's difficult to adjust at the beginning.Co-penned by Star Wars royalty Lawrence and Jonathan Kasdan, "Solo: A Star Wars Story" introduces Han on his home planet of Corellia, where he serves under a local mob boss and dreams of fleeing, becoming a pilot and owning a ship.Young Han is scrappy and overconfident and makes things up as he goes along, unafraid to lie or trust his gut.It's one of the many unsubtle references to things to come, and a fallback refrain in "Solo," where some of the most memorable and pleasing moments are winking references to future memorable lines.The best moments in "Solo" are the simpler ones – the romance, the friendships, the clashing egos.
