A Different Perspective: ‘Solo’ Is A Great ‘Star Wars’ Movie That Mocks SJWs
Despite galactic shortcomings at the box office – with headlines like: ‘Solo’: How Big a Box Office Dud Is the ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff?, How can Star Wars get back on track after Solo’s disappointing debut?, or ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ falls far short of box-office expectations – Disney delivered a fast-paced, (mostly) well-written westernesque action flick detailing the dawn of the universe’s most notorious pilot, Han Solo, and his hirsute companion, Chewie.
Solo takes us deeper into Star Wars, exploring the universe’s vast black market. Rife with smugglers, gamblers, and scattered dissidents of the oppressive Galactic Empire, this illicit underworld is not only Han Solo’s origin, but the Rebel Alliance’s as well.
The film follows a downtrodden, juvenile Han Solo (played excellently by Alden Ehrenreich) trapped in the slums of the galaxy. Deprived of basic freedoms in the dystopian Galactic Empire, Solo is forced to spend life as an Aladdin-like street rat on the city streets.
With his young love, Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke), Han plans their escape from the grimy ghetto. As their plan goes south (sort-of), Qi’ra is captured at the border as Han successfully escapes.
Solo displays Han’s cavalier attitude to politics as he attempts to join the Empire (whose grasp he just escaped!) with hopes of becoming a pilot. His rebellious spirit, however, gets him booted from flight academy; he’s demoted to ground trooper where he meets his mentor and seasoned smuggler, Beckett (Woody Harrelson).
