Dave Trumbore
"When you go to a 'Fast & Furious' movie, you expect three things: Fun, physics-defying action, and family dynamics (...) 'Hobbs & Shaw' absolutely delivers on all three counts"  POS
United StatesUnited States M
Wesley Morris
The New York Times
"It has a good hip-hop soundtrack and the sort of coherent editing that you need for something with this much juxtaposed bone-breaking. The weightlessness, however, extends to a plot that makes no sense"  NEU
United StatesUnited States M
Todd McCarthy
The Hollywood Reporter
"Crazy action, and lots of it (...) The film's highly elaborate physical scenes and innumerable effects reflect the money said to have been spent, and they mostly pay off in action that's both visceral and amusing"  POS
United StatesUnited States F
Stephanie Zacharek
"Johnson, Statham and Kirby are all wonderful (...) But somewhere around the midpoint of 'Hobbs & Shaw', the action sequences become so elaborate that they start to weigh the movie down"  NEU
United StatesUnited States M
Eric Kohn
"Summer’s best guilty pleasure (...) Johnson and Statham inhabit a higher plane"  POS
United StatesUnited States M
Scott Mendelson
"The action is far less 'believe your eyes' than it should be for this series, but it works thanks to the sheer movie star charisma on display, both from its lead actors and periodic cameos."  POS
United StatesUnited States F
Brian Tallerico
"[It] delivers the goods one would expect (...) It’s only in the final third (...) that you realize you don’t give a damn about anything that’s happening (...) But by then you probably won’t care (…) Rating: ★★½ (out of 4 )"  NEU

Dan Mecca
The Film Stage
"Things get a bit long in the tooth as the finale drags, but there’s enough goodwill to push past the finish line."  POS
United StatesUnited States F
Leah Greenblatt
Entertainment Weekly
"Leitch seems to know how to set up his outrageous set pieces, then get out of the way often enough to let his stars do what they need to do: Joke, chokehold, kiss, and smash until the helicopters come home."  POS
United StatesUnited States M
Brian Truitt
USA Today
"It’s a Frankenstein’s monster of action-hero testosterone – though the highlight is a woman – that gets lost trying to be its own thing (…) Rating: ★★½ (out of 4)"  NEU
United StatesUnited States M
Peter Debruge
"`[It] is fun, but it’s so ludicrously over-the-top, it makes the comic-book logic of your average Marvel movie look reasonable by comparison (...) It is actually a highly accomplished cinematic feat"  POS
United StatesUnited States F
Hoai-Tran Bui
"It delivers to us what we want in a movie where Johnson and Statham are filmed 85% of the time in slow-motion: good dumb fun."  POS

First Showing
"For those who are looking to wring the last bit of escapism out of the summer movie season(...) [it] has enough star power and spectacle to make you forget about reality for a couple of hours (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

Peter Bradshaw
The Guardian
"Unexpectedly fun (...) The movie is a bit overextended, and the action runs out of steam in the final battle, but it delivers some bangs and laughs for your buck (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  POS
United KingdomUnited Kingdom M
Tim Grierson
"A lumbering spinoff that lacks the series’ over-the-top élan and ludicrously adrenalised set pieces. Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham spend a lot of time tediously barking at one another"  NEG

Clarisse Loughrey
The Independent
"Complete nonsense but disarmingly pleasurable (...) This film is proof that those behind 'The Fast and the Furious' franchise have long stopped caring about anything but providing momentary joys (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  NEU

Gabriella Geisinger
Digital Spy
"[It] is just over-the-top enough to be fun (...) Somehow it all works, and feels distinct enough from other 'Fast & Furious' movies (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

Donald Clarke
Irish Times
"Neither Johnson nor Statham has much to work with, but the banter is awful (...) They need to get back to basics (…) Rating: ★★ (out of 5)"  NEG

Deirdre Molumby
"For what it is, audiences should be satisfied – it has an awesome cast, slick action, and offers high octane entertainment (…) Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

Alan Corr
"It’s not without a few laughs and there are some well executed ding dongs (...) but at this stage an oil change and a NCT might be in order for the 'Fast and Furious' franchise (…) Rating: ★★ (out of 5)"  NEU
IrelandIreland M
"It’s competently directed but there’s no sense of personality (...) Plus the film is easily 45 minutes too long (...) Ultimately 'Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw' is a pedestrian affair (…) Rating: ★★ (out of 5)"  NEG

Jake Wilson
The Age
"It might be argued that plot and character aren’t that important in a film where pure action is the goal. But Leitch is a long way from his strenuously stylish spy thriller 'Atomic Blonde' (…) Rating: ★★ (out of 5)"  NEG

Daniel Rutledge
"A major disappointment (...) There was magic in this franchise for a while, but its gas tank of goodwill is slowly being drained and Hobbs & Shaw pushes it dangerously close to empty (…) Rating: ★★ (out of 5)"  NEG

"An awe-inspiringly stupid movie, but in a way that manages to be enjoyable and engaging"  NEU

"So for now, I’m going to go lay down, chuckle at the film’s inventive ridiculousness and try not to think too hard about anything at all (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 4)"  POS

Screen Rant
"[It] is acceptably diverting for an August blockbuster, but doesn't bode so well for Universal's desire to spin-off multiple 'Fast & Furious' characters into standalone films (…) Rating: ★★½ (out of 5)"  NEU

"The movie delivers the constant, ridiculous action they’ve come to expect (...) It just doesn’t hit the same level of transcendent ridiculousness that distinguishes the franchise’s best chapters.(…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  NEU
