Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw movie review

The famous car racing action movie Fast & Furious was just presented a sequel with the title Hobbs & Shaw. The story will be about 2 archenemies Hobbs (by The Rock) and Shaw (by “Transporter” Jason Statham).

Just like the other action movies, Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw is not focus on the storyline, instead of that is a lot of fighting scenes making audiences feel excited and suffocated. Hobbs & Shaw script is not really creative, it is about biological weapons with risk of exposing, giving billions of lives on danger. Although not like each other, Hobbs and Shaw still have to work together to save the world. And this is the reason we have some hashtags on Internet like #teamHobbs, #teamShaw.

In the beginning of the movie, the storyline is slow and not interesting, but after that, everything becomes more tense and save the whole boring beginning. Cars, planes, guns and grenades were used to make the movie become more interesting and spectacular. Not just a lot of excellence fighting scenes in the trailer, you can enjoy much more thrilling actions on the screen. You will tremble watching Shaw drives through a narrow space, and get chilled watching the big Hobbs dangle in the helicopter and almost fall down the ocean. You might watch all of this in the trailer, but you will be more interested watching the full movie.

The approximate expense for the movie is about USD 200 millions, not small for a action movie. So the movie effects are really fantastic, authenticity and worth for the expense. Example for the effects is racing scenes of cars and helicopter, car engines are replicated so well, and helicopter is staggering constantly in the air, making audiences get thrilled. Multilchannel sound effects is indispensable auxiliary element, making the movie much more lively. Sound effect in the movie gets along with the storyline with the good volume making audience live in the movie. But 3D version is not that different from 2D version, its not good of depth perception. Moreove, slow motion scenes under the rain, raindrops are blurred mixed together a lot.

Cast of the movie is excellence, just only the Rock and “Transporter” Jason Statham are enough to make the movie be sold out. Specially, there is a guest actor will make you surprised because you cannot think of him in this movie. And about villain, although with a lot of weapons and physical strength, we still cannot see his evil, maybe because he is not the last boss.

Please be noticed that there are 3 mid credit and 1 after credit, you should stay on the seat until there is nothing on the screen the go home. The funny scenes of Hobbs and Shaw is not just in the movie but also in the after credit.
