Starcast – Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Vanessa Kirby, and Idris Elba.
Directed By – David Leitch
Runtime – 2 Hours 16 Minutes
The spin-off of the Fast & Furious franchise, Hobbs & Shaw is a riot, let me just state it out first. The movie is everything you expect a Fast & Furious film to be. We all loved the humorous bickering between Dwayne Johnson’s Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw in The Fate of the Furious, and most of us wished for a spin-off. Their chemistry is one of the major reasons, Hobbs & Shaw works.
The goal here is not to make a cinematic masterpiece but something that will be enjoyed by everyone. This movie is out and out entertainer.
Talking about the action in the film, it’s outstanding from start to finish. The climactic sequence is something that had me jumping with joy on my seat. Also, the whole focus on Samoan culture and their family dynamics work big time.
The background score is good. The cinematography, especially, the scenes in Samoa are beautiful. The editing is sharp. The VFX is brilliant.
It’s a Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham show and the two just nail it in each and every scene. Whether it’s their comic timing, the fight scenes or just the sheer charisma, they are the biggest pluses for this spin-off. Vanessa Kirby is badass and performs well. Watch out for her in the sequence at Eteon’s headquarter. Idris Elba is the perfect “bad guy”. He is charming and stands tall against the likes of Johnson and Statham.
Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is messy, over the top but crazy fun. The movie takes the Fast & Furious franchise to another level of insanity and madness. Watch it for Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Vanessa Kirby, and Idris Elba, for the action set pieces and the humour.
P.S.: There are three post-credit scenes. Also, two epic cameos by A-list stars. IMAX viewing recommended.
