The problem with Hobbs and Shaw was the lack of substance that made everything seem inconsequential and unworthy of commitment to memory. The plot was unoriginal from start to finish. I dare you to find any element of this movie that has not been done before and done better. The script was corny and no amount of skill from Dwayne Johnson or Jason Statham could save it.

Hobbs and Shaw was a substandard addition to the franchise but its worst offense if probably ruining the characters of Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw for franchise fans. What a waste of time and talent.

GI Joe Retaliation seeks to bounce back from the rather passable but underwhelming first installment by signing on two of today’s most badass action icons – Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who only has to appear in a movie for its awesomeness to rise ten notches and John McClane himself — Bruce Willis. This time, the story borrows inspiration from current […]
For anyone expecting a badass movie based on the poster, which is much too similar in treatment to other Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s starrers, this is definitely not the movie […]
Okay, so here goes. I am a big fan of The Rock and when I first saw the trailer for this movie, I was fully expecting an action movie of […]
