Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)
Lawman Luke Hobbs and outcast Deckard Shaw form an unlikely alliance when a cyber-genetically enhanced villain threatens the future of humanity.
Stars: Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby.
I have to say not the greatest fan of the Fast & Furious franchise, although this appears not to be a bad thing as plenty of F & F fans are not too welcoming to this spin-off.
I found myself thinking the thing was ending about forty-five minutes before it finally did and wished it had. 90 minutes would have been adequate for this Action Beat em up with one or two funny lines between the two main characters Statham and Johnson. Add Idris Elba to the mix and there was potential. But it was Vanessa Kirby that kept me watching and not the testosterone-filled male trio.
Too long but this will appeal to fans of Action movies, so I don't discount it out of hand. It's daft, fun, and crazy. An audience will watch this kind of movie because of its entertainment value. Just not my sort of movie.
MGN Rating 6.5/10
