I am not the biggest fan of the Fast & Furious franchise but I have enjoyed some of the movies. This spin-off takes things to new heights, I mean: there is a dude with super powers!!! It feels like if it could turn the franchise fresh again and direct it in a different or interesting direction.
Both actors in the lead roles – Jason Statham(Shaw) and Dwayne Johnson(Hobbs) are among the finest Hollywood has to offer at the moment. Idris Elba(Brixton) is also dope, a great actor. (He is featured in the picture above)
The franchise consist of 8 movies and grossed almost €5 billions worldwide and this title is the first spin-off of the series. There might be more to come, who knows?
Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015’s Furious 7, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down. But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw’s sister — these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves. Hobbs & Shaw blasts open a new door in the Fast universe as it hurtles action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa.
