Greatest Strength Of 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Is Also Its Biggest Weakness

Scott Mendelson

After 21 hours of initial reviews, Solo: A Star Wars Story has (as of this writing) earned a 73% “fresh” score on Rotten Tomatoes. The last three Disney Star Wars flicks had over/under 380 participating critics in the end. Whether or not that Tomatometer will dip below the 66% fresh ranking of Attack of the Clones, a score better than the 55% achieved by The Phantom Menace (the lowest for a live-action Star Wars movie, although RT scores for older movies should always be taken, due to retrospective reviews that enter the site, with a grain of salt) is assured.
