Boys just wanna have fun


What Johnson and Statham lack in hair they make up for abundantly in muscles, wisecracks and jaw dropping action! A great instalment for F&F fans and casual action movie lovers alike

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw


A lot of action, fights, chases and an overload of testosteron. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Sure, if you start nitpicking, there are some flaws in continuity and all, but this is not the kind of movie that needs to be nitpicked.
Hobbs & Shaw doesn’t rev as high as the franchise’s best installments, but gets decent mileage out of its well-matched stars and over-the-top action sequences.
Even though Hobbs & Shaw is by far the most removed stylistically and thematically from the first Fast & the Furious, it proves that this franchise still has places to go and people to see.
Expect the usual over-the-top amount of comic book/cartoon-style action violence: car chases and crashes, explosions, fights, guns and shooting, and torture (fairly mild).

Movie Info


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 (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.

After Credits Scene

Post-credits scene one

In the first post-credits scene, we see both Deckard and Hattie together, visiting their mother, Magdalene Shaw. They pass her a birthday cake, in which is hidden her means of escape, a block of C4.

Post-credits scene two

We see Hobbs re-connecting with his family when he receives a phone call from CIA Agent Locke (played by a surprise cameo). The Agent updates Hobbs on the comically dire status of the weaponized virus.

Post-credits scene three

Agent Locke calls Hobbs back, short of breath and clutching his hand over his bloody stomach. He informs Hobbs on the details on how he’s been shot, only to pause mid way and realise that he isn’t bleeding. Rather it turns out he’s covered in someone else’s blood.

Lacks ethnic diversity for the main characters, female characters are underwritten.

Positive Messages


If the Fast and Furious franchise has any 2 core messages its fast cars and family. While the former isn’t something to be encouraged, there is no better movie series out there that empathises the latter so well.



Consumerism doesn’t really feature in this movie, a character has a lot of nice cars but only uses 1.



Fairly strong language, with uses of “s–t,” “a–hole,” “c–k,” “ass,” “bitch,” “bastard,” “goddamn,” “hell,” “d–k,” “balls,” “wanker,” “give a toss,” and “Jesus Christ” (as an exclamation). A character says “f–k,” but it’s muffled, and his mouth is obscured. A character makes a sexual gesture.



Packed to the teeth with Tom & Jerry style action violence. Guns and shooting. Torture. Explosions. Car chases and car crashes. Martial arts fighting, punching, hitting, etc. Minor characters are killed. Threat of a deadly virus destroying the world. Flamethrower.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking


Social drinking; a character pours himself a pint of beer, and a character drinks a tumbler of whiskey. A character downs two shots of alcohol at once. Characters open bottles and share what could be beers.



Long, passionate kiss. Camera passes over a dancing woman’s bottom. Cleavage on display. Sexual innuendo and sex-related language.

Total Score


Somewhat mature content but should be fine for early teen kids and older.
