I’m off two minds after watching Hobbs & Shaw: On one hand, I enjoyed the ridiculous action, that damn transformer acting motorcycle with Idris Elba commendering it, Vanessa Kirby kicking ass (unlike her meek performance in Mission: Impossible – Fallout), The Rock & Jason Statham’s chemistry & the cameos of Ryan Reynolds & Kevin “I’m over it” Hart. Good stuff.
Then, on the other hand, though: The shit Brixton, in which, Elba does give a great performance, I don’t really give a damn about his backstory, because the film is trying to some unearned storytelling, since, I don’t feel it’s earned. There were times where I felt that film does do a lot of yadda-yaddaing with the story beats. Sure it’s counterbalanced with the action, for sure, but the shit with the mysterious voice guy & then him having a backstory with Hobbs & Shaw, I’m gonna need this high-octane film to slow down a bit to inform us of this shit. David Leitch’s direction is sketchy, at times, especially near the end, with that cuban-b’ed dusk till dawn shit that’ll make any 3D GTA proud with its quick night & day timeframe. It’s also long & some of the dialogue between The Rock & Jason Statham can get a little annoying, cuz it’s the same shit, for the most part.
I still enjoyed this movie, but I think Kriss of MTR said it best in their most recent review of Hobbs & Shaw: “There’s too many cooks in the Kitchen”. And for me, the last best Fast & Furious movie, was the sixth one. Even since then, they’ve been trying to catch that one. Hopefully, F&F 9 will get them back to greatness.

Hi Rod and Karen, Idris needs to play more bad guys. His motorcycle needs to be in the next transformer movie. I may be off base but the voice talking to Idris sounded like Ryan Reynolds with a voice box at times. On a side note The Farewell was funny, Aqwafina was Acting, hopefully it shows up in Charlotte soon, I could only catch it in Winston Salem. Thanks for all you do!!!
