Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw – **(*)

Posted: August 20, 2019 in 2019, Action, USA, XX1/2

According to the ten year old son of a good friend, this is the BEST. MOVIE. EVER.

When I was ten, E.T. was the best movie ever.

That said. Hobbs & Shaw is quite a fun movie. It’s action packed. There are funny dialogues. Main leads Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham have good chemistry. Idris Elba is great as the bad guy. (he should always be the bad guy). Princess Margaret from The Crown is kicking ass and strangling people in a more efficient way than Sylvester Stallone has ever done. Or Schwarzenegger. Or Van Damme. Or Seagal. Cliff Curtis is in it! And Helen Mirren! Oh, and unfortunately Kevin Hart as well. There are chase scenes in London and battle scenes in Samoa!

Not sure why I’ve never watched any of the previous episodes in this Fast & Furious Franchise, but this is a great introduction.

Not sure why it’s not a bigger box office success. Is it too British? Is it too different form the other movies? It’s the story, some say.

Ehm. Who needs a story in these kind of movies? Here’s the story: a secret agency wants a dangerous virus, created to help humankind, but re-programmable into a very deadly genocide wipeout virus. A woman on the run has injected the virus into her body and both the CIA and MI6 are sending their best asset to stop the woman/virus getting into the wrong hands. Yes. The story makes NO sense at all. But it’s fun!!!!
