Hello, Movie Buffs!
Most action films have a unique rhythm and pace that relies heavily upon the involvement of the characters. In turn, the film can also suffer if the actors fail to live up to what the story demands of the character. A few years ago, Dwayne Johnson (Jumanji 3) and Jason Statham (The Meg, Spy 2) became two of the most interesting characters of the franchise and that has not changed here. With their perfect chemistry and solid character delivery, Johnson and Statham are like a modern version of an old fashioned buddy comedy duo from the 80s and 90s. Idris Elba (Luther) was a pretty worthy and formidable villain for the two leading men and nearly matches them in the charisma department. Vanessa Kirby (The Crown) was incredible and at times she even stole the show from Johnson and Statham. The rest of the characters deliver great performances with their respective characters.
Overall, Hobbs & Shaw (2019) is an entertaining, action-packed, comedic, and high-octane spin-off film that is a worthy addition in the Fast and the Furious franchise. The story is fun and provides a change of pace to the franchise, which is mostly comprised of serious films filled with heart. While the story may contain the same formula, the comedy takes on some different approaches that we have not seen from the franchise before. The cast performance was solid and made this film. All in all, this film was better than I expected and I was not disappointed. If your a fan of the series then I highly recommend this film.
