‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ is the Worst Reviewed Star Wars Movie Since ‘Attack of the Clones’
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.
