Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019 film)

Film Explained

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019 film)” Jaw-dropping action, cool one-liners and the industrial-strength charisma of Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham. Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw proves that these ingredients are enough to make a reasonably entertaining movie. This is the first standalone vehicle of The Fast and the Furious franchise – the previous 8 films have made more than $5 billion worldwide. For those who came in late, Luke Hobbs is an American special agent.

Deckard Shaw is a former British military operative. The two first faced off in Furious 7. Of course they hate each other. And of course now, they must join forces to save the world. The film is directed by former stuntman David Leitch who’s also directed Atomic Blonde and Deadpool 2.

It’s no surprise then that action is the centerpiece of Hobbs & Shaw. Writers Chris Morgan and Drew Pearce engineer the simplest of storylines – a virus called Snowflake that melts your insides must be prevented from getting into the wrong hands.

Morgan and Pearce then proceed to weave stunts and comedic banter into it. Hobbs and Shaw are polar opposites. Leitch establishes this early on in the film. We see them in split screen as they go through their day. It’s telling that Hobbs drives an SUV and Shaw, a sports car. Or that while Hobbs pumps iron, Shaw, in this elegant suit, has an espresso. Johnson and Statham have such distinct personas and physicalities.

They make a great odd couple. In one scene, these two hurl glorious insults at each other. Hobbs says something about Shaw’s Harry Potter accent and Shaw tells Hobbs that he sounds like a giant tattooed baby. Basically, they’re deadly assassins behaving like five year olds. It’s a lot of fun.

The action veers from standard issue car chases in London to a staggering set-piece in which several cars and a helicopter are hooked together. Vanessa Kirby plays an MI6 agent. She also gets to execute killer moves including putting Hobbs in a headlock. Her eyeliner and mascara are always in place, even when her head is battered and bleeding. But this is not the sort of film in which you question these things. The weakest link is Idris Elba as Brixton, a biologically enhanced supervillain.

In an interview, Elba described this character as ‘part human, part robot, all ego.’ At one point, Brixton declares: I’m black Superman. But mostly, Brixton is a personality-free henchman, taking orders from this disembodied voice. This is the actual supervillain who runs a biotech company. He wants to kill weaker human beings and augment others.

I’m assuming we’ll meet him in a later film. Meanwhile Brixton growls and furiously rides this futuristic motorcycle, which just shows up whenever he needs it. This is the closest Brixton gets to a loving partner. Elba could
