Was it so boring that you fell asleep?
i was pretty tired before going into seeing the 8pm showing, yeah. when i went at 11 i was already yawning. missed Enfys Nest's exposition dump at the end
I keep describing it the same way. Thanks Ron Howard. You did Ford, Dailey, and Crispin proud.
I actually liked it.
I give it a C. It’s not horrible, but it’s so achingly average.
It reminds me of the beginning of The Last Crusade when Indiana Jones gets his scar, hat, whip and fear of snakes in one afternoon.
We don’t need all of this information. Just give us a simple, fun story to follow these characters along with.
I feel like the film would have been best as a simple heist film instead of an origin tale.
Yeah, it's pretty obvious they had a check list of moments:
Han meets Chewie and saves him from something...
Han meets Lando and wins the Falcon...
Basically, everything that has ever come up as part of Han's back story, and they wanted to include as many as possible. So they started with that list and built a story around it, rather than just coming up with a good story.
I quite enjoyed it once it got going, but the first 15 minutes at least were very iffy. I've only seen it once, but I've really no desire to watch it again any time soon.
