This movie whips ass! I think it's generally better than 7! There, I said it!

THAT BEING SAID... this rewatch really opened my eyes to the fact that I can't stand the Hobbs and Shaw stuff. #JusticeForHan aside, their dynamic, their character games, Johnson and Statham's whole DEAL in these has such a macho, Barstool Sports dick measuring contest vibe that is just so outside the irony-free, "we're a family" vibe that Vin Diesel is working SO hard to cultivate! Hobbs' addition to the series was a high point, but that's when he was an antagonist playing off Dom and his insane energy was a character trait and not a competition.

ANYWAY if you don't shed a tear when a bunch of cars circle around their surrogate father figure in order to save his life from an exploding nuclear submarine then are you even ALIVE? Can you even FEEL? Great movie.
