Solo reactions praise it as a fun space adventure with great performances

Last night was a big night for two of the most anticipated movies of the summer – DEADPOOL 2 and SOLO: A STAR WAS STORY – as they screened for critics and journalists. You can read the praise for DP2 here, but soon to follow were reactions for SOLO, which could be even more hotly anticipated. Anyone worried that all the behind-the-scenes drama meant the movie was in a bad spot, or that Alden Ehrenreich wouldn't be up to snuff to play Han Solo, can put those worries/poorly-placed animosities to rest. Turns out SOLO is a terrific outer space adventure flick that manages to feel unique compared to any movie in the saga before it, featuring awesome action and brisk tone. 

Along with great performances from Ehrenreich, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian (and some scene-stealing moments from the robot L3-37, played by Phoebe Waller-Bridge), SOLO has some stirring emotional moments to match the action. Hell, one or two reactions even hinted at some Marvel-esque set-ups that could hint at future movies with the squad. Sure, the movie may struggle to find its footing or get caught up in prequel problems, but all of that other stuff sounds too awesome to care.

You can read the reactions below!

So much for all that hate for Ehrenreich. I feel like I'm reading more good things about him than Glover, which is shocking considering how much swoon there was for him after the trailers. The actual review embargo for SOLO breaks on Tuesday, and you can come back for our own review then. So far things are looking good for this latest blockbuster on Star Wars saga, and we can probably expect more adventures from Solo and the gang. Was anyone doubting that? This movie will make a billion dollars.

SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY arrives May 25.
