The Rock & Transporter vs Black Superman? I'm in!

The first spin-off in the Fast and Furious movies is a total blast. Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham are enormously entertaining playing off one another. Add Idris Elba as a cyborg terrorist (yes you read correctly) and Vanessa Kirby as a sexy spy and viewers are in for one wild adrenaline rush of a blockbuster.
Directed by David Leitch, one of the John Wick directors, the action scenes and spectacle is top notch and creative. Despite clocking at over two hours, the film is fast paced and the cast is a lot of fun. The plot borrows liberally from the James Bond/Ethan Hunt playbook except trading those characters for two of the most charismatic action stars working today. It's preposterous and stupid but who cares? It's exciting and fun.
Those looking for an expertly handled exercise in escapist entertainment that does not include capes or tights will appreciate "HOBBS & SHAW".
