Just got back from seeing it, and I hate to be that guy, but I thought it was awful – though this could be fatigue setting in (yes I do think its possible). The only thing that kept me going was L3 and Powell’s call backs.
So many headaches like “We’ll call you Han Solo, then!” and “Find me on Tatooine. There’s a big-time gangster looking for a crew.” I cringed especially hard at the latter. Whoever put those lines in there needs to think long and hard about subtlety.
I did like Moroff’s cameo, as well as the mention of Scariff. Connecting these standalone films is a great idea.
Maybe it will grow on me the same was Last Jedi did, and I genuinely hope it does. It really sucks not liking a Star Wars movie.
