#738: Hobbs & Shaw / Top 5 Fast & Furious Moments
Good chemistry, great action and new collaborators elevate the new Fast & Furious spin-off.
The Fast & Furious franchise has come a long, long way since its street-racing origins, and its latest entry, HOBBS & SHAW (from "John Wick" co-director David Leitch), continues the series' evolution into a James Bond/Jason Bourne/Avengers hybrid. And Adam and Josh are mostly on board for Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson's comic bickering and Idris Elba's "Black Superman." But when the movie makes a play for sentimentality late in the film, one host feels the movie comes to a screeching halt and never recovers.
That review, plus a revisit of 2015's Top 5 Fast & Furious Moments.
