Hobbs And Shaw is a movie starring The Rock and Jason Stratham and is directed by David Leitch. The movie follows the titular characters fighting a man with cybernetic implants attempting to steal a deadly virus.
This was the first Fast and Furious movie I’d ever watched and as far as an intro to the series, I’m remarkably intrigued. It’s got some really good back and forth between the two mains, is pretty charming, and the action is as insane and fun as I expected.
The two leads are the real draws of this movie, aside from the series association. They’re two of the biggest action stars of this decade, and they were certainly the reason I decided to show up. And for what it’s worth, they’re as charismatic and macho as they usually are, but what I was really shocked by was how good their chemistry was. They had really solid rapport throughout. However, the movie seemed to push the idea of it being two alpha males at war, however the entire time I felt that Jason Stratham didn’t get enough solid moments. I understand that The Rock is probably the bigger draw, but I felt that he wasn’t given enough balance or material considering this was a movie based entirely around two specific characters
The action direction however comes out in true insane fashion. This is a fast and furious movie, and the action is both fast, and comes at you at a furious pace. There’s a lot of sequences that just wouldn’t be feasible in any other movie. They’re both insane, but also have comedic potential in the way that they, with maybe a couple subtle winks at the camera, take it completely seriously. They treat these as all things that would happen in real life, which while they for the most part are technically feasible, are still incredibly ridiculous. Part of it can be chalked up to Leitch’s stellar action chops. He really knows how to make insane situations more insane, yet somehow possible, as if you could do it too, making you want to aspire to certain aspects of the character.
