The newest story in the Star Wars universe isn’t set to come out until May 25th, but the early reviews are not kind to Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Rotten Tomatoes, a review aggregator website, has the latest Star Wars movie scoring a 72% critic score, the lowest since the much maligned Attack of the Clones came out in 2002. That movie sported a 66% critic score, which is still better than the 55% that The Phantom Menace received in 1999.
This makes Solo: A Star Wars Story the lowest scored Star Wars movie in 16 years, and the third lowest in the entire franchise*.
It is important to note that many of the highest grossing movies of the 21st century did not receive a great critic score, as the audience score seems to be a better measurement of entertainment value of a movie. For example, the fourth highest grossing movie of all time, Jurassic World, had a 71% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes.
