It is hard not to like Dwayne Johnson. The gentle giant races through movie scenes with a style that always leaves you in a feel-good mood.
Lawman Johnson (Luke Hobbs) teams up with Jason Statham (Deckard Shaw) for balance in the movie that bares a namesake title “Hobbs and Shaw”.
Their nemesis is Ukrainian Professor Andrekio who has developed a lethal virus called “Snowflake,” which could eradicate humanity.
In London, Hattie Shaw, Deckard’s mother (Helen Mirren) and her team of MI6 agents clumsily attempt to retrieve the programmable super virus now held by the terrorist organization. So the retrieval falls to Hobbs and Shaw.
The film has more than its share of fists, kicks and slugs, augmented with an unusual number of car chases and crashes. It lasts more than two hours, but you are never bored.
Stay for some interesting and amusing “take-outs” after the film ends. I rate this movie a B grade because it is great fun. It is currently showing at the Rialto Theater in The Villages.
