Introduction to Fast and Furious Presents Hobbs and Shaw Movie Review by Ms. H
Actors Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) and Jason Statham star in the movie Fast and Furious Presents Hobbs and Shaw. There were other noteworthy actors in this movie as well including a surprise one that drew a splattering of applause from the audience when he appeared.
Was this film exactly what I expected? Were there surprises and most importantly -- would I classify it as a “good” movie? Check out my movie review to find out.
Plot of Fast and Furious Presents Hobbs and Shaw Movie
In my opinion, the plot seemed like it was straight out of a comic book which revolved around a virus that has the potential to destroy the world. Sounds familiar? Of course this plot has been visited and revisited many times before in movies, tv shows, etc., so there was nothing really new here.
One of the subplots dealt with a villain trying to get the virus at all costs to use for wrong doings. In the midst of all of this, there is quite a bit of animosity (at least in the beginning) between Dwayne Johnson’s character Hobbs and Jason Statham's character, Shaw.
Twists in the Fast and Furious Presents Hobbs and Shaw Movie
This movie is not one of those films where there is a huge revelation unbeknownst to the audience. Initially, you may be surprised of a sibling relationship in the movie. However, for the most part, it appears that the writer and director concentrated on the action scenes as well as the sometimes extraordinary stunt-type feats in the movie -- especially one dealing with a helicopter and trucks. If you watch the movie, you will know the scene I’m referring to.
Little known fact about the Fast and Furious Presents Hobbs and Shaw Movie: Jason Momoa (Aquaman) was the first choice to play the brother of Dwayne Wayne’s character but was unable to do so according to sources because of his schedule.
Stand Out Actor in Fast and Furious Presents Hobbs and Shaw Movie
Even though all the actors performed adequately in their roles, I think that Idris Elba as the villain in this movie did an outstanding job. I do not recall that he ever played a villain, so I gave him even more kudos for doing an admirable job doing so.
Assessment of Fast and Furious Presents Hobbs and Shaw Movie
There were a few holes in the plot of this movie, which you may or may not notice. However, for action and entertainment value, I think this film did an adequate job. The strong points of the movie include the array of action scenes, as well as a hint of science fiction in the character played by Idris Alba. Some of the low points included the attempts at serious drama which in my opinion fell short.
To answer the question posed previously, I would categorize Fast and Furious Presents Hobbs and Shaw as an ok type movie which you may want to see if you are a fan of action films.
Rating of the Fast and Furious presents Hobbs and Shaw Movie
