#FirstThoughts: Fast and Furious presents Call of Duty:Modern Warfare….I mean Hobbs and Shaw
First off, if you can accept the fact that Idris Elba is bionic, then you’re halfway there. I mean, this is Stallone and Schwarzenegger in the 90s action lol
You know what to expect from this franchise at this point. Action, fairly straightforward plot, laughs and a good amount of heart. Johnson and Statham play well off each other, even though some of the scenes felt long and a bit forced. Elba is bad ass, even if a bit underdeveloped. I need him to play Bronze Tiger in Suicide Squad 2. Also new addition Vanessa Kirby held her own in the series as well.
There are several post credit scenes that flesh out the human side of the characters and set up future adventures. They threw a curveball cameo which was pretty funny and would be an interesting addition to the cast if made official
7/10 – Summer popcorn fun. Par for the course with F&F
