The casting was simply awful, too many already famous actors, it ruined the feeling of being in another galaxy.
I have the solo shins
Ok, so this is my opinion on the whole star wars disney movies. Its totally subjective so there is no need for anyone to get offended. What i think happened in the beginning of the development is next: The writers and directors sat down in a conference room with the chart analysis of the movie market and came to this conclusion - Fictional quote: "Lets make a movie that will have the following: 1. Easy plot so everyone can understand (so we can have a lot of paying customers)2. Super cool special effects (everyone loves stunning visuals)3. Super cool action (kids will love it)4. Obvious racial equality (more paying customers) 5. Lets take something from the old movies and make the back story for it. This way we win over old fans. (smart - more money)6. Lets put in some feminist power (more paying customers) 7. No need to develop the characters , make it simple 8. No need to make the consistent and intelligent story (its not like we are targeting super smart people) " ......But the problem is that this way - you are underestimating fans intelligence. And that is why everything backfired for Disney. The point here is that Disney should learn from their mistakes and make the film that the FANS will appreciate.
Solo bombed for one reason. The Last jedi was total garbage.
Disney should have followed the books. There are at least 3 Han solo books about him before he joined up with Leia and Co.
Actually watch it again or see if it you haven't seen it. Think it was as good as rouge one as a Star Wars story. And shut up boy cotting George Lucas and Alen Enhenrich made it to the Cinemas. Be great fall for that!
wearing a classic dorks Tshirt. good job
Solo was better than the Last Jedi but wasn’t perfect. For me the three reasons I was reluctant to see it were because Number 1: The Last Jedi was terribleNumber 2: Timing. Releasing it in May was a terrible idea, because it was competing with movies like, as you mentioned, Deadpool 2 and Avengers: Infinity War, which I frankly was much more interesting in seeing.Number 3: The idea of a Han Solo prequel with a different actor isn’t really that interesting. Sorry.Nonetheless I am a committed Star Wars fan so I went to see the film and I came out of the theatre mildly satisfied. It didn’t blow me away as a film, but it had its moments to shine. Essentially it went right in some areas and failed in others.
I like how every person in the comments is like"BeCauSR BoYcOtT" oh please it wasn't from that. Marketing, behind the scene trouble, it's a star wars STORY, it would come to Netflix, no one asked for it(though it was quite good), competition(infinity war and deadpool 2), people worrying if it will be good or not. The BoYcOTt didn't do shit and you have to admit that
It failed because the film wasn't very good. Also they had the wrong guy for the role. Anthony Ingruber should have got the part.
Why it failed? Alden being cast as Han Solo. He was TERRIBLE!The story was TERRIBLE!After The Last Jedi I won't see another Star Wars movie.The Last Jedi was COMPLETE GARBAGE!!
I would have loved to see solo but Han died in force awakens and last jedi Luke dies no reason to watch another sw
Yaaaawn😴 Solo's boring AND predictable! Not to mention Donald Glover is a terrible actor AND irritating😠
I liked Solo. The ending makes me want to see what is up with Kira's dark side (Maul) and Solo working for Jabba. Give Ron Howard the green light for a sequel or at least another Star Wars story (Obi wan -whispering).
It didn’t go to Solo because of the last jedi, but i just watched the movie and its one of my favorite star wars movies
Another idiot saying F the fans make the movie for people who don't like Star Wars.
I tried watching Solo, it was pointless, boring and cringey. It left me with largely the same response as TFA. I just felt nothing.
They put that idiot from "Cheers" in it. It was over right there.
*If the last jerkaround was a shit movie then Solo was pure piss! At least we got the obligatory cameo for Ron Howard's mongoloid little brother. Sadly, the ONLY one that nailed it was Donald Glover as Lando! Somehow though, I knew from the getgo, Howard could not save this film. AND (incoming pun) I've never seen such a wooden performance from Harrelson. And I've seen Zombieland!*
*With all that said, this Disney sanctioned rant (check the logo in the corner!) holds little water and is not going to pacify fans to generate less hate on Disney.*
Why did disney do it
Solo's biggest problem was the same all prequels have: no suspense. No matter how much danger you put them in we know Han, Lando and Chewie will be ok.
- Came in right after the biggest divisive film (Last Jedi) in the whole series- Had a lot of public knowledge of the bullshit that went on behind the scenes- Was waaaaaaaay more expensive than it needed to be thanks to the behind the scenes bullshit- Didn't have any trailers (not even teasers) until a Quarter of a year before it's release- Is riding off the coattails of Harrison Fucking Ford- Infinity War
Well thought out. However, the main reason Solo flopped was the BOYCOTT due to The Last Jedi.
They should have done a movie about the Knights of Ren, a Snoke movie or something that fleshed out the new trilogy which is painfully bare bones. They have to stop with the sjw feminist crap as well. They need to show men and women working together, not a bunch of sassy Mary Sue bitches kicking the incompetent males in the nuts to score some Hollywood back-patting points.
Loved this movie its the closest we will ever get to to the exspanded universe stories from the old comics and books i read when the OT was all there was. They gave Chewbacca a proper character arc he had stuff to do and was next to Empire the movie where he has his best scenes. He isnt Han's servant or pet he is friend they are great together. The story is great too the feeling and atmosphere of the Starwars criminal world. Woody Harrellsons Becket is a awesome character and i love the way they mirror him with Han in New hope.
Rogue One sucked too.
Who's to blame? The Last Jedi. Never seen a movie completely destroy everything set up to the prior film like that one did so everyone probably expected Solo to either be the same or boycotted it as due to TLJ.
I watched it for the Lore. How Han met Chewbacca and Legendary Wookie Strength, Where Han got his Infamous Blaster(A hand held Rifle mind you),Hans first Mission and the Advice from Beckett that became his Motto("Trust No One"), The Kessel Run, The Beginning of the Rebellion, Han and Lando's Mercurial Friendship.....and Han's Beginning. That being said I don't understand one thing, Crimson Dawn was one of the five Syndicates (The Money generating arm of the Empire)....yet they were stealing from the Empire..... essentially stealing from themselves..........what was Darth Maul up to(besides making Qi'ra his apprentice after she killed her Master((Rule of Two))......I want to see THAT movie.*Edit: Not sure if Qi'ra is Lore.*Missed Opportunity: Escaping the Maw -Hyperdrive Failure Han should have said "It's Not my Fault" because it was his Idea.......shame 😒.
what a disaster this starwars thing has become, I hope the darkside wins, and get it over with.
The only reason I didn't go see it was because they didn't get the right actor
I liked solo hated last jedi
Finally got around to watching it on DVD. 1 - Not absolutely horrible, but not very good either. 2 - Tried to cram in too much backstory. Name, check. Childhood, check. Millennium Falcon, check. Lando, check. Chewbacca, check. Kessel run, check. 3 - Ending was horrible. Leave Darth Maul dead (yea, I know Clone Wars resurrected him). Terrible awful idea best left in a cartoon. You don't bring characters back from dramatic on-screen deaths without cheapening every dramatic event. If writers are willing to ret-con away something everyone saw happen clearly on-screen, well then nothing is off limits. Look up Dallas season 9. I guess Snoke is probably still alive since he getting chopped in half is only a flesh wound.
Is this inside knowledge from disney
all the new characters r so bad
He doesnt LOOK OR ACT like Han Solo!!
The last jedi ruined star wars and I wasn't even interested in seeing Solo.
we all know why Solo failed. i waited to rent it and it's actually pretty good. easily as good as TFA. not as good as Rogue One, but a solid effort. i hope they make a sequel to TFA some day.
Idea for SW Anthology film:"Maul: A Star Wars Story"After "Kenobi: A Star Wars Story" of course after "Solo: A Star Wars Story".Forming a Darth Maul Anthology Trilogy of sorts. It's a good save IMO what do y'all think?
Because it was unnecessary
ANSWER THE DAMN QUESTION!
TFA was overrated, the last Jedi and solo Were garbage although I will say I enjoyed rogue one the last 30 minutes alone were better then all the most recent movies combined
The casting was clearly the issue. There was not a single solid performance on the screen. Alden and Donald were fucking horrendous. Truly garbage, unbelievably disappointing. I think the film was a fine adventure film, Ron Howard just has that affect, it failed on the performance end, the acting routinely spoiled the experience for me. They should have gone with an impressionist, it was stupid to make not particularly great actors do impressions, better to assist impressionists into stronger performances as actors in general.I don't understand the commitment to Alden Ehrenreich, he so clearly wasn't the right choice and yet every warning was ignored. He doesn't look like him, sound like him, act like him, was too short. I greatly disliked The Force Awakens, i saw it for free with a friend and noticed immediately i was watching "A New Hope" with a female.
Solo....was actually great compared to...last jedi.....
I didn't see Solo in theaters because I was sore about The Last Jedi. So was my wife.I bought it on DVD and watched it with her. It's a shame we didn't see it in theaters, because we really liked it.Doesn't change the fact that I, and many others, didn't see it because of the disappointment inflicted upon us by The Last Jedi.
why would i go to see a film about a guy that disney already fucking killed??? come on!!!!
This movie was awesome . People didn’t watch it because of the last Jedi. But this movie has nothing to do with how bad the last Jedi was . Solo was great
No one wanted this movie, that's why it failed
Were you guys intrigued by Emilia Clarke’s character Quira?
I mean i want to see where her ark ends up especially with her new position 👿
deadpool 2 was better than infinity war by miles..
Release date and competition is a cop-out. SW used to come out in early summer, and other movies were more successful with similar scenarios in 2017 and 2018.
Bought by Waltdisney.. you bitch
a grown man
The boycott was a big part. Personally, I say good on those people who are boycotting the film. Glad they are making a statement against the Disney movies. I would boycott myself, but I didn’t mind Solo, as I said in my review. Please check it out. thexvid.com/video/945hme23juy/video.html
When Solo was in the Theaters, I went to see Deadpool 2. I hadn't even heard of it until I saw a movie poster for it on the wall... not as an upcoming movie but one that was already playing. I only just saw it yesterdayas a rental and I really enjoyed it. Given how bad the 'talk' about it was, I was very pleasantly surprised at how well it all worked in the end. Sure, it wasn't the best of Star Wars but it was a lot better than the prequels.
I refuse to watch anymore Disney Star Wars wannabe movies. They’re trash.
A masculine character like Solo can not exist in today's soy boy culture.
Saw half Solo yesterday but fell alsleep. Felt like a child western is space. Not that bad but not good either. Like the majority of Disney movies this days.
Last jedi was horrible so I did not want to go to another star wars movie ever again.. But people who saw solo thinks it's a good movie...
I didn't see it because 1 I was burnt out on Star Wars at that point and 2 I just didn't know it came out. I enjoyed wail watching it but thinking back I see why people didn't like it. If this wasn't a "Solo" story I but random character it would an alright story.
This is just my opinion but the reason i didn't watch solo (and also last Jedi) is because i feel like the main reason for watching a movie isn't present anymore in star wars films and that is being told a good story..What im trying to say is that the star wars films aren't trying to tell a story but just giving us fan service so they can cash in on the franchise the plot just doesn't feel natural with cocky characters cracking jokes and action without context instead of giving us good character development. Say what you want about the prequels but they knew what they we're doing telling a tragic story of Anakin becoming darth vader while also expanding thé universe with interesting new lore. Im sure that a lot of people will disagree with me but this is my reason for not seeing new star wars movies
I'm surprised when you mentioned the "Boycott", you didn't mention the "Boycott" due to the horrible SJW influence...which is why I didn't see it. I'm 57, saw the original when it was in the theaters. Followed through all of them (even the gawd awful prequels and remakes). THIS is the one I called it quits on.
As soon as I read the twitter statement regarding one of the clowns involved in Star Wars about NOT BEING SORRY FOR INJECTING STAR WARS WITH IDENTITY POLITICS I WASNT GIVING SOYLO MY COIN.
didn't they make Lando "pan sexual" that's all the more reason NOT to see it, SJW bullshit!
I actually liked the last Jedi. I don’t know why you all hate it.
Finally sat down to watch it and was pretty neutral about it really. Expectations were low. Felt similar to Rogue one. What I definitely seen right away was the fact that they had to tie a lot in with just the one movie. I think giving it at least two parts would of made it better. Was like he gets his blaster, he meets Chewbacca, gets falcon. Rapid fire leaving less detail which is what the fans drool over. We want stupid details we can speculate over. In a new hope no one new what a parsec was but we liked talking about it. Stuff like that.
The last Jedi ruined it for me so I'll be boycotting any new movies unless there's a miracle.
Same here... I've just got around to watching Solo online now because the Last Jedi was so SHIT.. And Solo has joined it in the toilet bowl as a smaller slightly less smelly turd... But its still a turd... This dude here is skirting around the obvious issue... Fans boycotted Solo because TLJ sucked and Disney blamed the fans....
It just comes down to writing. I watched it again today and it was one long car chase action flick. It would be like if ROTJ removed the Vader/Luke good vs evil plot and was all about destroying the Death Star.
Didn't see it in the theater. Finally watched it last night, and acrtually really enjoyed it. (Hey: My expectations were set VERY low!) But there is no escaping that fact that this is not a movie that ANYBODY wanted. (We wanted KENOPBI! lol) Couple that with all the other stuff... studio meddling, poor marketing, bad timing, too soon/saturation, and it was doomed from the start. Still had fun watching it though, even if it is one of the lesser entries.
I liked Last Jedi, I liked it even more after watching Rian Johnson explain some of the story choices he made (still incredibly dislike Luke throwing the sabre over his shoulder).That said, I did not feel a drive/need to see Solo in theaters. I saw it on (digital) video, and wish I had seen it in the theaters.There WAS one question this film answered that I've wanted answered for a long time...and that is "How did Chewie and Solo end up together." The answer to that question and how it was presented was ABSOLUTELY the best part of the film for me. Once that scene was complete, I was officially on board for the duration.
I hated last Jedi, and refused to watch another SW movie. And I heard Solo was all just a SJW flick. Just watched it. And I have to say it was fucking awesome.Huge SW nerd, I was the DM for the west end games SW RPG so the lore, and the fucks are given. And watching this, even if some of it was changed. There is still much held to the old lore.Movie was just fun as hell to watch. I was wrong about almost everything.
I love this channel. But is Disney now producing your channel. Cause this video makes me think it is. Solo was boycotted because of the last jedi everyone knows it. But not just because of the last jedi but insulting the fans and telling us we don't care what you think and this is the way is going to be so if you don't like it don't watch it. So we didn't.!.!
It bombed for most people because of SJW’s and the liberal political climate going on right now in American/western culture. The influence of the liberal agenda/SJW’s is ruining movies.
Solo was just a story no one really wanted. Then you add in the terrible set stories, and changes, and it never had a real chance. I didn’t go see it in theatres, because Infinity War was my whole theatre budget that month. Plus, moviepass didn’t make it available only area, so there was zero chance I was spending extra money on it.
Last Jedi destroyed Stars Wars saga for me. Not interested in what they produce in future cause Last Jedi sucked so bad and ruined entire Star Wars storyline for me.
Failed because of the last Jedi a lot of us hardcore Star Wars fans boycotted the movie to show Disney/Lucas films we don't like the direction they are taking Star Wars.
You love Kylo....Nuff said.
i refused to go to see it cause Harrison ford was not in it.
Thank you for addressing "some" of the reasons as to why "Solo, a Star Wars story" flopped at the box office. No one of those commenting below fully agree with you because we all know that there is "the elephant in the room" that has to be ignored by all those (like yourselves) who are associated with the current viewpoints of Lucasfilm and of Disney. We understand that you have families to feed and telling the truth often leads to unemployment (for some) or being labelled horrible things (as many of us, SW long time loyal fans have experienced) by those "few" in control of things right Now! I am looking forwards to hear your review of "why" SW episode IX flopped at the box office (when it comes out in 2019)
The reason why it flopped is because Ron Howard directed it and his movies are just eeeh..there I guess. And I watched The Solo movie and the Sith Lord in the movie was sooo crappy and cheap make up job that it looked like a low budget movie made bad guy. The movie was sooo boring and they had the girl in it from West World and shes a AWSOME actress and she was probably like: wtf am I doin in this crappy movie. :) And Kylo Ren is such a HUGE whimpy sith that they should have just made him turn to the light side cause its sooo comical seeing him try to put on The Sith Big Boy Shoes and act like a real sith. OMG sooo funny!!!!!!!
The last Jedi ruined star wars for me I have 4 kids and we are done with the force because of the last Jedi...
I loved Solo in the cinema at home meh
Legit the only Star Wars film in which I was wondering how long was left until it ended and I could leave
It is because it’s the shittest Star Wars movie by a mile
Stop putting sjw bullshit in these movies.
The Last Jedi killed it. The film itself is pretty good.
It is amazing how laser focused the comment section is on every shill channel and article I read visit or read. All of these shills never state the obvious. The mainstream media think the public is stupid. News flash...we see right through your narrative and is smarter than you are. We practice our freedom of speech...perhaps you should stop shilling and practice your freedom of the press.
Enough with prequels just get last movie done and sale it off to different company. I doubt will happen but man can dream.
Who cares about solo he died like a bitch.
The reason why solo failed, isn’t because it wasn’t a good film, there were points that were annoying, particularly the SJW android. It was because of the pure belligerents of the newest and most prevalent ideological driven members of Lucasfilm who were quite vocal, plus the results of the Last Jedi and people being so disgusted with the film.Because this has continued even up to now, I believe that episode nine or suffer the same fate
Hands down, Solo is a horrible movie.
The new star wars sucks
I blame Disney. Fuck them
"meh meh meh last jedi meh meh meh boycott wambulance" i think it's called franchise fatigue
and yet people watch super hero movies all the time and they continue to gross more and more. I've watched almost every super hero film in theaters barring like 1 or 2 I happened to miss cause I was busy and kept postponing my trip will it was to lateI didn't see Solo cause I had no desire to see a SW film after Last Jedi
Same reason everyone else has been saying here. We want Star Wars to be special. This isn’t.
If only they used someone who looked an acted remotely like Harrison Ford it wouldn't have bombed . dumb move on their part.
feminist ruined star wars
Do you know that Harrison Ford did ask George Lucas to kill his character during the filming of Empire Strikes Back. But he never did. I'm a huge fan of Wars, when Patrick took over Young Indiana Jones he too was scoffed because he didn't act like the character.I watched this last night and liked it, alot and it explained a number of things, everything you've highlighted is just opinion. Han thought he was well known and came off as smug which is on point in this and the first trilogy.
I liked it, I liked them all and I've been watching them since 77. It's a story that takes you away from reality. I've read many of the books and watched the cartoons. what I can't understand is how people don't like them. If you're a fan of star wars enjoy the ride and dont judge or nit pick every little thing . And I mean come on. The scenes where Han finally pilots then Chewie joins him.. was down right awesome! I just watched a couple sw videos, one from Solo another from ANH, kind of amazing how much the two Ford and the new kid look
