Hobbs & Shaw sees Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs (People’s Choice winner Dwayne Johnson) and British military elite operative-turned-outlaw Deckard Shaw (Teen Choice nominee Jason Statham) forced into an unlikely alliance when anarchist Brixton (Golden Globe winner Idris Elba) threatens to unleash a deadly virus on humanity.
Emmy nominee Vanessa Kirby (The Crown) shines as rogue MI6 agent, Shaw’s sister, and audience favourite Hattie, and look out for Oscar winner Helen Mirren as Magdalene “Queenie” Shaw, as well as a cameo from Golden Globe nominee Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool).
It’s directed by John Wick producer and Atomic Blonde director David Leitch, with The Fast Saga alumnus Chris Morgan, and Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) writing.
Common Sense Media puts the recommended age at 14+, saying, “This high-spirited summer action extravaganza delivers precisely what it promises: two great personalities, great stunts, and a little something extra. Hobbs & Shaw … narrows its focus to the most charismatic, and funniest, of the series’ characters.”
Hobbs & Shaw was the 11th biggest movie at the global box office last year and was nominated for four 2019 People’s Choice Awards, including Favourite Movie, and four 2020 World Stunt Awards, including Best Fight.
