Mostly, the movie just putters along on two jokes: The Rock is very, very big, and Jason Statham compared to him (and not anybody else) is small.

Whether grimly injecting herself with the virus, bantering with Hobbs or hanging onto a truck like a thrilled kid on a roundabout, Hattie is dynamite. I took a 10-year-old boy to the screening and she was his favourite character.

Usually, it's pleasingly aware of its own silliness. But there are blind spots.
August 3, 2019
It's a thoroughly fun action comedy that delivers exactly what it promises - and if the screening I attended is any indication, kids will love it.

The cardboard standees of these guys in movie theaters across the world will have just as much depth.

Don't let the trailer fool you. It's pants (insert crotch joke here).
August 23, 2019
You'll be able to smell the sweat and manliness dripping through the screen and whilst this is a pretty naff movie, it's still carries plenty of fun and decent action.
August 20, 2019
Ultimately good feeling, fun action scenes, [and] fun banter -- you cared about the main characters.
August 19, 2019
Taking a detour from the main franchise, Hobbs and Shaw manages to inject new life into an already lively movie universe.
August 18, 2019
Hobbs & Shaw is a solid spin-off of the Fast & Furious franchise with familiar faces delivering fine performances in an action-packed, fast-paced, at times generic, summer blockbuster.
August 17, 2019
The new film doesn't break any new ground, and at times it gets away from its core strengths, but it does enough right to make itself worthwhile.

At one point Dwayne lassoes a chopper with a chain and holds it in the air with one arm. I almost choked on my slushie from pure delight.

The audience is there for entertainment and popcorn, and they get both.
August 15, 2019
The Fast and the Furious franchise has affirmed itself as a source of unadulterated entertainment and this spin-off is no exception.
August 15, 2019
While Johnson and Statham have bags of charisma to spare, all that does is keep this from being worse than it is.
August 15, 2019
A big, bold action movie that's as entertaining as it is ridiculous.
August 15, 2019
This is a big, dumb, but entertaining action movie with some humor and some family relationships. It works well enough as an action movie, but it needed more character development and a smarter script to get to the next level.
August 14, 2019
Hobbs & Shaw is at its best when it focuses on the action-a common thread in filmmaker Leitch's work.
August 14, 2019
Fun, entertaining, and spectacular only at moments. This first spin-off of the "Fast" franchise doesn't manage to squeeze all of the juice from its stellar lead protagonists. [Full Review in Spanish]

Between Kirby, sci-fi comic-book villainy, and just enough self-awareness to let viewers in on the joke, this is how you spin-off an intellectual property... assuming you choose to at all.
