Capsule: Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Shaw (Jason Statham) are always furious against each other but they will have to work together. Such a situation arises when Brixton (Idris Elba), a cyber-genetically enhanced villain who threatens to distort humanity.
One among the most awaited Hollywood action thriller ‘FAST & FURIOUS: HOBBS & SHAW’ has finally hit the theaters. Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) are always up against each other but a bigger threat united them for once faster and dangerous. Brixton (Idris Elba) who has been genetically changed to become ‘Black Superman’ is posing a huge threat to the universe. Deckard’s sister Hattie (Vanessa Kirby) joins Hobbs and Shaw to take down the dangerous enemy together.
This movie will be a stand out from the rest of the previous films in the franchise by giving it a ‘spy action thriller’ feel. Humour comes in during the high intense scenes as Johnson and Statham lits conversations. The chemistry between Dwayne Johnson and Jason completely sets the screen on fire and is the major achievement of the movie.
Idris Elba makes a brilliant performance as Brixton in the villain role and that should be applauded. Vanessa Kirby as Hattie does an amazing job and packs a punch with the screen time she has. Few characters seemed edgy and seem to become a small pullback for the totality of the movie.
Hobbs & Shaw is worth watching for the intense moments and stylish action sequences which is the highlights of the movie. It pulls us back with the story-telling and the movie loses plots at some points, making it a bit odd. Surely a one time watch for Fast and Furious lovers forgetting the legacy of past movies.
