‘Hobbs and Shaw’ Is a Fun Action Movie

I keep saying it time and time again, I wasn’t into the Fast and Furious franchise until The Fate of the Furious. Yeah, you diehard fans may have your favorite installment in the franchise but that was the first one that made me say, “Okay, this is pretty good.” And in the film, you have the lovable relationship between Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham.) Together, they make a fun experience as they talk cold smack to one another as they kick butt and save the world.

So, in the middle of the night in 2017, I happened to be bored and hungry for a new movie. So my dad and I decided to watch The Fate of the Furious simply because we had heard a lot of great things about it and I wanted to see if it was as good as people said it was.

So, through the first thirty minutes or so I was watching the movie thinking that Furious 8 was like every other Furious film and would eventually get really stale and cheesy. And then, as the movie kept progressing it started getting better and better and better until I couldn’t tear my eyeballs from the screen, that’s how surprisingly good it was.
