Story

After Fate of the Furious released in 2017, lawman Hobbs and the outcast Shaw are back on screen to kick some ass, as they're returning in the spinoff flick Hobbs and Shaw which has garnered enough curiosity ever since the announcement. Here's team AP Herald's exclusive first on net Hobbs and Shaw review.

Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), an agent of America's Diplomatic Security Service, and Shaw (Jason Statham), a former British military operative faced off in Furious 7, and are often seen trying to take down each other, but as anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gets hold of a bio-threat that can destroy mankind and also overpowers Shaw's sister and a rogue MI6 agent (Vanessa Kirby), arch-rivals Hobbs and Shaw must team up to bring down Brixton. How they achieved their mission together is what the stunning movie is all about.

Star Performance

Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham are amazing in tailor-made roles and combining action and humor casually, the men pull it off extremely well in an entertaining manner. Idris Elba as their nemesis is menacing and aces the antagonist act well. Vanessa Kirby is aptly cast while the rest of the cast is adequate.

Techinical Team

Background score by Tyler Bates is scintillating and elevates action sequences to a different level, while cinematography by Jonathan Sela captures the stunning action episodes and the adrenaline rush in an impressive manner. Crisp editing by Christopher Rouse makes sure Hobbs and Shaw is a tight action mass flick.

Analysis

After making cult blockbuster movies like John Wick, Atomic Blonde and Deadpool 2,  Director David Leitch has returned, this time taking over the fast and furious franchise with this spinoff featuring macho men Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham. The rivalry between Hobbs and Shaw is already established and right from the word go, the movie is gripping. From the arrival of Idris Elba the movie gets even more massy and the action sequences combined with the occasional humour adds to the fun element and the equation between both Hobbs and Shaw is perfectly transformed from the rivalry to chivalry and translates to action packed fireworks on screen. With Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in full form and a perfect antagonist to compete against them, Hobbs and Shaw is a perfect action entertainer which you can't afford to miss.
