Review of Fast & Furious: ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ by Christopher Pattison
‘The Fast & The Furious’ Franchise is one of the biggest franchises currently running right now. The past two entries have generated more than $1 Billion in box office returns. One of the best aspects of the last film (The Fate of The Furious) was the camaraderie and chemistry between Deckard Shaw (played by Jason Statham) and Luke Hobbs (Played by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson). These two characters were great together, providing great moments of comedy and action. It only made sense to throw these two into a buddy cop team-up film and in 2019 that is exactly what we got. Fast & Furious Presents ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ follows our titular odd couple in a buddy-cop team-up film that has the two teaming up against a cyber-genetically enhanced villain, Brixton (played by Idris Elba) who threatens humanity’s way of life. So how was ‘Hobbs & Shaw’?
‘Hobbs & Shaw’ is fun, action-packed, over-the-top and just a blast to watch. This was one of my favourite cinema-going experiences in 2019. The film was filled with everything I wanted it to be and more. Jason Statham and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson both have amazing chemistry with one another again. They are both having a blast on-screen which adds to the enjoyment of the film. Idris Elba as ‘Brixton’ was also a lot of fun as the villain, he is hemming it up and is a great advisor for our heroes. Vanessa Kirby also joins the cast as Deckard Shaw’s’ sister ‘Hattie’, she was also great, she adds a lot to the film, selling a lot of her action sequences and adding to the duo as well and their banter. The best part of this film is the banter between Hobbs and Shaw, they are both great delivering blow after blow to one another and it was just fantastic to watch on-screen. The action is also well helmed, it is over-the-top and insane, but it is also a lot of fun as well, which is exactly what I wanted from this film.
Overall, Fast & Furious presents ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ is another fun and enjoyable instalment in the ‘fast & The Furious’ saga. The characters are endlessly likeable with Statham and The Rock playing off each other brilliantly, new addition ‘Vanessa Kirby’ was also great in the film as well. There are two really fun cameos as well, Ryan Reynolds and Kevin Hart both show-up in this film briefly and it was great. This one is definitely worth your time; I had a great time with this film. I am giving ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ a 7.5/10. Pick this one up on 4K Ultra HD today, it looks and sounds incredible.
