Hobbs and Shaw Honest Trailer

The Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw closed out the summer with a lot of ridiculous action. It was too long for some, didn’t have enough “family” for others, but you really can’t say that it was anymore stupid than the rest of the Fast and Furious movies that have slowly become superhero movies with cars. However, it did somehow manage to have even more testosterone than any of the other films in the franchise while simultaneously having an overwhelming amount of flirting.

Watch the Hobbs and Shaw Honest Trailer below to see how they break it down. Read More »

Biggest Stunt in Hobbs and Shaw

For years, moviegoers have found themselves drawn to the Fast & Furious franchise and its parade of gravity-defying stunts. With each installment, the stunts got bigger and more elaborate, going from better-than average driving, to dragging a safe through the streets of Rio, to throwing cars out of airplanes, jumping from one skyscraper and into another skyscraper, and even racing a submarine.

The series’ first spin-off, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shawgoes deeper into the realm of science fiction than any previous movie in the series. So it comes as no surprise to find that the stunts are a little different this time around as Brixton Lore (Idris Elba) is no mere villain: he is a cybernetically-enhanced superman who doesn’t need a car to protect him from crashing into buses or even getting shot in the face. 

And now we’re going to get into spoiler territory.

Hobbs and Shaw Cameos

If you went into Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw expecting to get some cameos from the cast of the primary Fast and Furious franchise, then you walked away mostly disappointed. But if you went in not expecting a couple key cameos from two of Hollywood’s biggest stars, then you may have left the theater satisfied.

The marketing for Hobbs and Shaw kept the cameos in question out of the marketing, and the internet has been surprisingly good about keeping them under wraps, but now the cat’s out of the bag, and the cameos are officially being used to push the second weekend of release. Find out who made these big Hobbs and Shaw cameos and even see clips of one of them below. Read More »

michelle rodriguez justice for han

There’s more trouble brewing in the Fast and Furious family.

Michelle Rodriguez, who plays Letty, has voiced her displeasure with the way the franchise has treated its female characters in the past, though she seemed to resolve that dispute earlier this year. But now she’s taken to Twitter to dismiss the contributions of writer/producer Chris Morgan, who has been the architect of the Fast franchise since 2006’s The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. Specifically, Rodriguez says that Morgan has nothing to do with the “Justice for Han” narrative. Take a look at her comment below. Read More »

Hobbs and Shaw trailer

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is now in theaters and it is a bonkers action movie that brings the street racing franchise into soft sci-fi territory and a step closer to their inevitable movie set in space. Who would have thought back in the early 2000s that a franchise that started with petty criminals and street racing would one day introduce superhuman cybernetics and a programmable virus? With the franchise’s first spin-off (unless you count Tokyo Drift) feeling like such a departure from the early years of the Fast & Furious movies, let’s take a scroll down memory lane to see how we got here.

Hobbs and Shaw Spoiler Review

Spoiler alert: It’s about family.

And that’s it? We can end this article there, right?

Okay. We’ll go beyond that. When taking about Hobbs and Shaw, the latest film in the Fast and Furious saga, it helps to step back a bit when reflecting on the ridiculousness of the first spin-off from what I’ve dubbed the Fast and Furii (I’ll keep going ‘till it catches on, dammit). And here’s your real spoiler warning: all plot points are on the table from here on out.
