As much as I’ve liked the other three films since this restart, they’re all pretty dark and self-serious. This was a very good change in pace.

Well-acted, well-plotted, used humor effectively. Set pieces were all pretty awesome. Yeah, I saw the double crosses coming, but they still well done.

Harrelson and Glover were probably the best parts, along with Chewbacca. I don’t know why there was all that hand wringing and negative press about Aldrich; the kids did just fine. Chanelled Ford’s performance without aping. And L3 as the “woke” robot was pretty entertaining.

Lot of the groundwork at the end for future sequels, which I don’t mind. There’s room out there for these films to go anywhere they want. They can both go in new directions or cover previous favorites. They’ve got a good track record and will keep making money regardless.
