Though the two major complaints people have had about SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY
are valid, they are also highly exaggerated by right wing equivalents of SJWs who when they get #triggered
accuse everyone of being an SJW and act as if every little thing they dislike is some evil SJW plot. Keep in mind, I'm not saying evil SJW plots don't exist, it is simply that not everything is one. Just like Globalist Elites exist, but not everyone is an agent of Satan for merely disagreeing with someone about something.
My explanation will have MINOR SPOILERS
but nothing that will ruin anything for you. They are simply just to clarify why the two primary complaints are exaggerated.
COMPLAINT #1: the actor they hired to play Han Solo was so terrible that he ruined the movie
COMPLAINT #2: the movie had an SJW droid that got #triggered over everything
Though there was one actor (I forgot his name) who would have made for a much better Han Solo, the actor they went with didn't do a bad job and didn't ruin anything. Would the movie had been better if they went with the other actor? Of course. Was the movie ruined because they didn't? No.
The droid known as L3 was not an SJW droid. She was merely extremely eccentric, just like R2D2 is -- and for the same reason: she has lived a long time WITHOUT EVER having her memory wiped and -- for the exact same type of reasons as why R2D2 never had his memory wiped.
When a droid proves to posses unshakable loyalty, they become an asset when you leave that loyalty in tact. The knowledge they acquire over time combined with that loyalty, makes them very useful to have around in a tight situation. Those types of droids are literally a life saver.You may recall several things about the Millennium Falcon from the original movies:
#1 - Han Solo always referred to the ship as "she"
#2 - The ship seemed to have an eccentric personality that manifested itself in subtle ways
#3 - The ship had the most efficient navigational computer, much more so than one would expect from that class of ship
#4 - Once Han said to C3P0 "I need you to talk to the Falcon"
Solo: A Star Wars story makes it perfectly clear as to why these things were the case.
L3 had not only great critical thinking skills and was very good in tight situations, but this combined with one of the best navigational databases known to exist -- she acted as not only a co-pilot flight strategist, but she also literally acted as the navigational computer for the Falcon.
When she was fatally wounded during a battle, they saved her by literally making her computer core a part of the ship and thus, she literally became the ship.
This is why Han Solo was able to complete the Kessle Run in 12 Parsecs. The Millennium Falcon is a thinking ship that is able to create and implement strategies -- with pilot approval, of course.
So I really see nothing wrong with L3, nor with the movie itself.SIDE NOTE:
this movie also answers a question that was left unanswered in the Star Wars: Clone Wars animated series. Though I won't spoil it by revealing which question, nor will I reveal what the answer to it is.
