My advice, read all the negative comments you can. Then go see it, it Will be better than you expect.
Rogue One had the ability to push the gauntlet because it knew what it was. Solo doesn't really have that same freedom, and it feels like it was played safe rather than diving in head first.
We finally get to see Corellia on the big screen, but it feels lackluster and that somehow leaks into the entire film. Alden does a decent job of portraying Han, but I think Donald Glover did a better than average job with Lando. He really shines. I think that Glover's preparation of watching Billy Dee Williams' performance comes through, there are tiny little nuances that just help paint the younger version of the character.
I have mixed feelings about the cameo at the end. It almost felt like it was shoehorned into the film as if they believed it would automatically make the film better. You can almost picture the writing staff sitting around and thinking "we've got a decent movie, but we need a major pop at the end" and then someone chimed in "I know, let's throw him into it." It seemed way out of left field and let's be honest, is nowhere near as seamless as the epic cameo battle at the end of Rogue One, for example.
I thought this was a very fun film. Nice action and cool characters. Had some stuff for the hardcore fans, but also could easily be enjoyed by newbies to Star Wars.
