The crypto-zoological agency Monarch faces off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.

Jason Statham's character, showing off his collection of cars to Luke Hobbs, pauses on a Mini Cooper, saying that it was used during a mission in Italy; a nod to The Italian Job (2003), one of Statham's previous hit movies. Technically, the job with the Minis was in Los Angeles when they are retrieving the stolen gold, and to avenge the death of a team member. See more »
During the final scene when Hobbs takes Sam home, you can see Roman Reigns stood behind him facing the house, then when the camera cuts back to Jonah, Reigns is suddenly on the decking. See more »
What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?
That is a bit what the two stars are supposed to be. Though don't ask me who is who - if you insist I'd say Statham is the unstoppable force and Dwayne the immovable object. Which would make sense, since he is the Rock ... Ok kidding aside now, we know this unlikely team made waves in the last Fast and Furious movie andwas the best thing about it. At least the funniest thing about it.
So if you liked that and you came for more of the same, you will be treated that way. And you should not expect anything other than just silly action and all that accompanies that. Idris Elba has quite the appearance early on, but cannot add to that after that. He is just a stepping stone - I'm being a bit unfair. He has quite a few moments. Still overall you might be a bit disappointed in his character - but an obvious continuation of Hobbs and Shaw might shed some light on that (who am I kidding it made enough money for them to continue with this)
