“Hobbs and Shaw” is the newest edition of the “Fast and Furious” franchise. Stars include Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham. The main plot of the movie is to stop Brixton Lorr, a cybernetically enhanced soldier who possesses superhuman strength and a lethal pathogen that could wipe out half of the world’s population. It’s up to Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw to put aside their past differences and work together to prevent the seemingly indestructible Lorr from destroying humanity.
When asked about the movie, Rory Fegan said, “As a fan of the ‘Fast and Furious’ movies, I thought this spin-off was exactly how I anticipated it to be. It was an action-packed movie that had me chuckling to myself the whole time. I had a great time with my friend Joe.”
Joe has seen some action movies before but mainly just a few of the Marvel movies. Joe’s viewing of the movie was similar to Rory’s. Joe said, “I liked the plot and clever jokes. I went in with no expectations because I am unfamiliar with very action-packed movies, however, this movie just blew me away.”
Overall, the movie saw lots of reviews and many spoke highly of it. If you consider seeing Hobbs and Shaw for yourself, it doesn’t matter if you have seen all the “Fast and Furious” movies or none, you will enjoy this new movie.
