Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

Just when you thought the Fast & Furious franchise couldn't get any more outlandish... along comes this audacious spin-off. Those best of frenemies - lawman Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and rogue spy Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) - are forced to team up again to protect Shaw's MI6 agent sister Hattie (played by The Crown's break-out star Vanessa Kirby), who's trying to stop a supervirus from falling into the hands of a sinister bio-tech outfit. The back-and-forth banter can be a little wearisome at times, but it does mark time between each bombastic burst of awe-inspiring escapist spectacle, with the vehicular daisy-chain finale a thrilling highlight. Kirby is more than a charisma match for the endearingly dynamic headline duo and nasty Idris Elba certainly has his moments as the electronically enhanced villain.
