Quick tip for Hobbs and Shaw first timers- Disable your logical/analytical sense as pre-Credit begins. In a matter of minutes, you’ll realize you only need the parts of your brain useful for basic senses to truly enjoy yourself.

Hobbs and Shaw is an entertaining popcorn flick, filled with enough exaggerations to build a story building from carton paper.

The latest Fast and Furious spin-off is sure to gratify your thirst for the downright unrealistic. It’s so ridiculous that you’ll almost not realize that all the jumping from rooftops, power bikes crashing through the second level of double-decker buses, took place in 48 hours give or take.

Yea! 48 hours from America to the United Kingdom, Ukraine, Moscow, and finally, Samoa island.

The story is another “saving the world hogwash”, based on Hattie Shaw (Vanessa Kirby), an M16 agent who injects herself with a virus, Snowflake after a near-failed attempt to retrieve it from Eteon, a terrorist organization.

Eteon’s weapon is Brixton Lore (Idris Elba), an advanced cyborg who’s charged with getting Hattie at all cost. Then comes Deckard Shaw (Jason Stratham) and Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson). The bickering duo proceeds to keep us in a maintained state of glee as they attempt to rescue the damsel in distress.

It’s interesting how Hobbs and Shaw managed to wrap a rather cliche story in strong themes of family and humanity over technology. The attempt at presenting us with a moral lesson in the midst of rib-cracking Entertainment deserves a thumbs up:

👍🏽

Hobbs and Shaw is without a doubt, an action-comedy. Its biggest win being how it successfully shares the fun fifty-fifty, satisfying both genres.
