Another year, another ‘Star Wars’ movie — should you go ‘Solo’?
While watching the entertaining yet frustrating “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” a question keeps returning: We know why we like Han Solo, but why do we like him SO much?
Is it the mythology, the cynical secularist in a world of religious Jedi who becomes as much a believer as he can? Or is Han nothing more than Harrison Ford’s charisma, a great-looking blaster and a beyond-loyal sidekick?
How much of that Han charisma do we get in “Solo?” Not a ton, to be honest. But Alden Ehrenreich as young Solo isn’t really one of the movie’s problems.
