Before you spend your hard earned money or valuable time watching Hobbs & Shaw, please do yourself a favor and watch the trailer. That way you know exactly what you are getting into. And if you feel like you need some non-stop, over-the-top ridiculousness in your life, then absolutely go get yourself a ticket.
Hobbs & Shaw is just what this summer needed. The first spin-off to the Fast and Furious franchise is an action-packed, light-hearted adventure. The Rock’s usual smoldering charisma is in full force as he brings Jason Statham into comedic banter. Vanessa Kirby is a fantastic addition to the series. She more than holds her own between two massive egos. Both title characters deliver their signature ass-kicking styles and many explosions to make you forget all about Vin Diesel.
Hobbs & Shaw is fun. Movie logic, physics, and common sense were abandoned when making this movie, and that’s okay. They completely lean into the absurdity and that’s what makes it so entertaining. Turn your brain off and enjoy the ride.
