“Hobbs & Shaw” Review

“Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw” stars Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham both reviving their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in the first spin-off from the “Fast and Furious” franchise.

As the name states, it focuses on Hobbs and Shaw having to team up together despite their different personalities.

“I think that Hobbs and Shaw’s love-hate relationship is cute and funny,” junior Jamie Salgado said. “It shows how close they actually are.”

It all happens once Shaw’s younger sister, Hattie Shaw, is framed for deliberately stealing a deadly virus and killing her whole military team, when it was actually in the fault of the mechanically enhanced former Britsih soldier, Brixton Lore. However, he seems too hard to handle for both Hobbs and Shaw when he is aided by a disembodied voice that powers an organization that is responsible for his super human abilities.

That’s when Hobbs decides to go back to Hawaii and ask the one person he never thought he would go to in need of help… his brother.

The film also reveals some unexpected cameos in the film by Kevin Hart playing a Federal Air Marshal Dinkley and Ryan Renolds playing CIA agent Locke.

“I was honestly shocked when I saw them make a cameo in the movie,” senior Pablo Martinez said.

An end-credits scene shows Locke calling Hobbs for backup, so the possibility of having a second “Hobbs and Shaw” film doesn’t seem unlikely.
