That is very very unfair mate Yes it's just another McGufin chase but still. The relationships between the protagonist and the Stath's sister? Come on! That's more than enough story for a flying cars film.and things like efficient storytelling, characterisation and plot all utterly surplus to requirements.
No accounting for taste But then I also like Godzilla KOM and The Grand Budapest Hotel so.....We were a little disappointed with this film. Okay we realised it was never going to be a serious, well thought out and logical bit of entertainment but even so all the "high tech" nonsense was just a little too far fetched - and I do realise I'm writing this in the context of a F&F movie!
And the ending dragged on for far too long (whilst including the quickest night to day transition I've seen for a long time!).
The review says "There's at least 85 minutes of high octane blistering action and snappy hilarity in this 135 minute movie". Absolutely agree with that sentiment, and if they'd trimmed it down to around 100 minutes and removed the sci-fi gadgetry guff it would have been much better.
But of course this is just our subjective opinion, and what do we know...?
That's interesting. I'll have to check that out.Good review, great picture, and I even enjoyed the movie (for what it is), but I found the LFE to be dreadful for the most part! After a decent thump near the start got me warmed up, I had to check my sub was still turned on after a bit as there were plenty of explosions but no discernible output. Lots of bass from the music numbers, but the explosions etc were sorely lacking.
Tried Ready Player One car sequence directly after just to check all was good with my setup, and was like I had added 10db to the sub channels all of a sudden...
For me there are usually no wrong opinions. If you like it you like it, if you hate it you hate it - and don't let anyone else try to convince you otherwise! It'd be a boring world if we all agreed on everything (hmm, that's starting to sound political now...).No accounting for taste But then I also like Godzilla KOM and The Grand Budapest Hotel so.....
Now all you need to do is like Hobbs & Shaw (a lot) for me to determine that you are indeed a man of good character and taste.For me there are usually no wrong opinions - if you like it you like it, if you hate it you hate it!

We had distinctly different opinions on TGBH in this house - I liked it!
I was a bit surprised, too. It was in DTSX in the theater and it's on the DTSX website.No DTSX track? Getting frustrated at the limited number of films coming out without the 2nd sound option. Enjoyed the film only to find the DTSX logo coming up at the end credits!
