Immediate reaction when the end credits roll
Sometimes, such big budget video games on screen are insane fun. HOBBS & SHAW – the spin-off of THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS (F & F) franchise is ‘Boom! One take’ fun for the lovers of the franchise.
The Story of FAST & FURIOUS PRESENTS: HOBBS & SHAW
Lawman Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), the faithful America’s Diplomatic Security Service agent and the outcast Shaw (Jason Statham) – former British military elite operative, are in competition to take each other down since 2015 with FAST AND FURIOUS 7. Enters Brixton (Idris Elba) a man who was shot in the head by Shaw some years ago but was saved by a something called “Black Superman.”. The genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever–and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw’s sister–these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be better than themselves.
HOBBS & SHAW review
Interestingly this is helmed by David Leitch (JOHN WICK, DEADPOOL 2) and the best part is the director gains some individuality in this weird combo where something like a James Bond spy mission gets accomplished with the help of a duo coming from TANGO AND CASH fighting an enemy that has some ‘super hero’ elements ala AVENGERS.. but a plot in such genre and follow ups hardly matter. It’s an insane ride designed to make hooplas banking on the franchise and making sure that the demand s of the junkies/die – hard fans are fulfilled. HOBBS & SHAW can claim thumping victory as it achieves this feat with super dose of bombastic vehicular mayhem and explosions that are in plenty. It’s a crazy zoom, boom ride. The previous ‘F & F’ was about finding a family without bothering about the blood ties, this one is about how you respond when you get a call from your blood (family member – brother, sister).
Johnson and Statham are pure fun a sheer delight. Their chemistry shines throughout and is the driving force of the movie. Vanessa Kirby in her avatar of a female version of Tom Cruise’s MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE with a twist makes her presence felt amidst the two macho hunks Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham. Bad man Idris Elba is fantastic.
The emotional connect is completely missing. It’s an insane delight for the lovers of the genre/franchise but others will get the opportunity to scorn and scream.
Those who just want to relive the bombastic experience of what a FAST AND FURIOUS franchise is capable of, HOBBS & SHAW by David Leitch – the maker of JOHN WICK, DEADPOOL 2 is pretty cool having Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in command.
