Remember when Fast & Furious was a racing film? So fast time passes and so many things change. After almost twenty years, this franchise has been transformed into many things, but the most important is to become a super macho film that defies logic and the laws of physics. Now, entering the 9th film, it becomes a film where Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham beat people.
Or at least that’s how it looks from the first Fast & Furious Presents trailer: Hobbs & Shaw.
The film no longer focuses on Dom (Vin Diesel) and his family, but rather agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and former villain Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham). The last time we met at The Fate of the Furious, they seemed to have fun chemistry. Now both are asked to help overcome the threat of a terrorist named Brixton (Idris Elba). Their response when they were told to work together?
“Impossible, he’s a bastard!” they shouted to each other.
But they have to join because the enemy this time has super powers. In the trailer, we see Idris Elba fired with a kind of laser beam that can make his muscles stronger.
“I am human evolution. Bulletproof. Super humans,” he said.
We will also witness the standard action of the film Fast & Furious like the sequence of cars that jump from the building. There was also a comical action where Shaw tricked Hobbs when they were about to jump from skyscrapers. A portion of the duration is also given to Vanessa Kirby who always looks worried. But most of these trailers are about Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham who beat people.
The film itself was worked on by a director who used to make films about hajar-beat up people. The director is David Leitch, who previously gushed John Wick, Atomic Blonde, and Deadpool 2.
