Wick's Review

Created Mar 25, 2020 07:43AM PST • Edited Mar 30, 2020 05:25PM PST

  1. Quality
  2. Good 3.0

    The stars are the thing in Hobbs & Shaw, an amiably over-the-top ultra-action comedy that’s more charismatic than funny. The Rock, Jason Statham, Idris Elba and Dame Helen Mirren don’t come cheap. Good thing they’re worthy of the millions they received, since the script is third rate at best.

    Charisma allowed this Fast & Furious spinoff to get made. Now, how about a sequel to this spinoff?

  3. Very Good 3.5

    Leading Stars

    • Dwayne Johnson loves playing characters like Luke Hobbs, a super agent with a precocious daughter and an unlimited FX budget. Even better, we love seeing him as characters like Hobbs.
    • Jason Statham isn’t my cup of tea, but is well cast as Deckard Shaw, a British mercenary and Hobbs’ reluctant buddy in Hollywood’s one millionth buddy movie.
    Supporting Stars
    • Idris Elba can’t rise above his ridiculous role, a “cyber-genetically enhanced” terrorist.
    • Vanessa Kirby disappoints..
    • Eiza Gonz├ílez sizzles per usual but otherwise disappoints. Blame the script..
    • Helen Mirren chews scenery as a criminal matriarch, a la Animal Kingdom.
    • Eddie Marsan is the character actor of the moment.
    • Eliana Su’a is cute and winning as the Rock’s teen daughter.
    • Ryan Reynolds and Kevin Hart are a hoot in a cameo.
  4. Male Stars Great 4.0
  5. Female Stars Great 4.0

    None, but set equal to Male Stars to not mess up the scoring

  6. Female Costars Good 3.0
  7. Male Costars Good 3.0
  8. Good 3.0

    Nice touch to include a Samoan interlude to the script. Ridiculous yes, but entirely apropos given Dwayne Johnson’s Samoan heritage.

  9. Direction Good 3.0
  10. Play Barely OK 2.0
  11. Music Good 3.0
  12. Visuals Great 4.0
  13. Content
  14. Risqué 2.1

    Denatured violence is how a kill-fest movie like this stays PG-13.

  15. Sex Titillating 1.7
  16. Violence Brutal 2.8
  17. Rudeness Salty 1.8
  18. Supernatural 3.6

    Jonsian Hypereality

  19. Circumstantial Surreal 2.9
  20. Biological Supernatural 3.7
  21. Physical Fantasy 4.1
