Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

Hobbs and Shaw (Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham) reluctantly team up in the hunt for a supervirus that has been injected into an MI6 agent (Vanessa Kirby) who’s now on the run… The best movie in this franchise since Fast Five (2011) is a spin-off featuring two brawny stars whose constant feuding is part of the fun. Just as action-packed and outrageous as the last Fast & Furious entries, a Hollywood paella with ingredients from Mission: Impossible and Bond movies. The running time and a dull, rainy final showdown are drawbacks, but additional charisma comes from Kirby and Idris Elba’s villain.

2019-U.S. 137 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by David Leitch. Cast: Dwayne Johnson (Luke Hobbs), Jason Statham (Deckard Shaw), Idris Elba (Brixton Lore), Vanessa Kirby (Hattie Shaw), Eiza González, Cliff Curtis… Helen Mirren, Eddie Marsan. Cameos: Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Hart.

Trivia: Co-produced by Johnson and Statham. Reynolds plays a CIA agent and also provides the warped voice of an unseen supervillain. Keanu Reeves was considered for a role.
