Solo was a flawed movie but one I enjoyed none the less.
Bogged down by misplaced humour, unnecessary side plots, over saturated colors and lacking a genuine Star Wars feeling it wears its troubled production history on its sleeve and is very much a diamond in the rough. The Coaxium Heist takes that diamond and polishes it to a high sheen. The changes made benefit the film's pacing and streamline the narrative leaving an enjoyable, witty and decidedly more Star Wars-esque romp through a galaxy far away. The video and audio editing are both excellent and aside from one transition which used a custom image there is nothing that breaks the illusion. From when the custom crawl begins until the wipe to the credits this is very much the full Star Wars experience you've been looking for.
As much as I love the entire Star Wars saga, I fell asleep during the theatrical release of Solo. I didn't fall asleep here, which already is a testament to the quality of this edit. DigModiFicaTion did an awesome job keeping it moving and getting rid of some of the useless stuff. It FEELS like Star Wars to me now, which makes it the version that I will watch going forward. Thank you so much!
I give this edit a very good review, since I really like the quality and cuts and editing choices. However, I have to say I don't really care about this movie. I watched the original version in the cinema, but I was really dissapointed then. I never planned to watch it again. I did watch this edit however and enjoyed the choices and the work done. But still, nothing moves within me when I watch it. Many great edits of the other films made them watchable for me again and made me actually feel the emotions and get the message and the characters of the movies. But I am afraid not the best editing in the world can safe this movie, since the characters, maybe actors and the whole plot at the most made me feel.. nothing. So to me this film is redundant as a whole. BUT the edit was great, a lot of work was put into it and DigModiFicaTion has a general feel on what to change when and how and what to leave alone.
