I'm surprised you were so against the "car" chase at the beginning of Solo--it's hard for me to imagine a classically-styled heist movie without one. ;)

Is it something inherent about the idea of such chases in the Star Wars universe (since you also didn't like the one in Episode II), or can you imagine a version of such a chase working in that franchise? If so, what would be different?

I love a good car chase in a heist movie. Ronin, as one example, has a great car chase.

But the car chase in Solo had nothing to do with any of the heists, and it took up valuable time that should've been spent establishing Correllia.
