Movie: Fast & Furious Presents - Hobbs & Shaw


After eight films that have amassed almost $5 billion worldwide, the Fast & Furious franchise now features its first stand-alone vehicle as Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.

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.

Directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2) from a script by longtime Fast & Furious narrative architect Chris Morgan, the film is produced by Morgan, Johnson, Statham and Hiram Garcia. The executive producers are Dany Garcia, Kelly McCormick, Steven Chasman, Ethan Smith and Ainsley Davies.

ha yeah we're way past those good old days.

honestly it's great, you can only do so much car-centered movies....plus the actual car enthusiast market in general society is tiny. they had to re-orient the movie away from cars to more about the group/crew + action/adventure

people like awesome action/eye-candy that doesn't take itself too seriously.

bring it on!!!

Maybe one day they'll reboot the franchise and it'll be about people modifying and street racing their Prius, Model 3, etc.

I don't know why people are shocked Idris is a fucking superhuman. The Rock's been playing that role in nearly every movie he makes.

First two will always be the best. Third one I guess was ok. The rest are just action moviews to me.

He'll be lucky if the Rock don't kill him off in the next one.

Exactly why I love them. You get some action, some cool cars, some fight scenes, some hot chicks (typically), and usually a few chuckles. Not a bad way to spend 2 hours IMO...

Okay... The first time I heard about this movie and saw the trailer I thought, "NOPE". That second trailer got me thinking differently. If you take the whole, "Fast & Furious spinoff" out of the equation it's just another logic-defying action movie. I hate to say it, because I think the premise is lame, but I predict that this movie will do better in the box office than most people expect.

As long as it has 'Fast and Furious' in the title, it will bank.

If it were just called 'Hobbs and Shaw', so many people wouldn't blink an eye at it because they wouldn't know it was F&F related.

They've been stealing since they took those SR20's in the Civics.
