The trinity of testosterone fuels this action-packed comedy. Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham and Idris Elba butt heads literally in FAST AND FURIOUS: HOBBS AND SHAW. It's silly fun. Here's our review of the FAST AND FURIOUS spin-off.
After Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson's fall out during THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS, the eighth movie in the FAST AND FURIOUS franchise, Dwayne Johnson would not likely return for another ride so The Rock got a spin-off feauturing his Hobbs character along with Jason Statham character of Shaw. Directed by David Leitch (DEADPOOL 2, JOHN WICK, ATOMIC BLONDE), the action is over the top in the tradition of the last few FAST AND FURIOUS movies, but the film works better as a comedy as far as the story.
FAST AND FURIOUS: HOBBS AND SHAW is now playing in movie theaters.
FAST AND FURIOUS PRESENTS: HOBBS AND SHAW Synopsis:
Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), a loyal agent of America's Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Jason Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015’s FURIOUS 7, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down. But when cyber-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 badder than themselves.
