Hobbs & Shaw review-
Run time 2h 16 minutes.
The Rock teams up with The Stath and they go on a rampage trying to stop a genetically enhanced Idris Elba aka Black Superman who wants to wipe out the weak of this earth. Cue lots of mayhem and stunts that defy physics in every form. Johnson spends most of his time bickering with Statham, admittedly some of it was entertaining. However this film is missing something...possibly the rest of the team.
Everyone now must have at the very least heard of the Fast and Furious franchise and the ‘family’. Well in 2011 The Rock joined the cast and now after being added to that family decided to split things up & run off to star in what they hoped would be the start of a separate franchise. So far it seems this one will have to rely on the Chinese market to save it. $200million budget plus marketing costs means this baby needs to hit in the region of $350 million to break even.
Tyrese famously had serious issues with Dwayne Johnson doing the spin-off and it seems the public so far agrees with him. I have to agree with him too. This is just another vehicle for the Rock’s antics- just can’t smell what he’s cooking.
Overall Rating: 😏 Bit Flat. #therock #dwaynejohnson #fast #furious7 #fastandfurious #fail #hobbsandshaw
