Hobbs & Shaw Review no spoilers. My Fast & Furious reaction to the spin off starring Dwayne The Rock Johnson & Jason Statham. Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is directed by David Leitch and written by Chris Morgan and Drew Pearce. It is a spin-off of The Fast and the Furious franchise centered around Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw, characters portrayed by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in the main series.
Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw Synopsis
Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Jason Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015’s Furious 7, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down. But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw’s sister — these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves.
Hobbs & Shaw blasts open a new door in the Fast universe as it hurtles action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa.
