At first the F&F series started as a fun and serious action film, then it became standard sequel fare for a couple of films, till it suddenly took a turn for the serious in F&F 5, to later only change again towards the ludicrous (no pun intended) with F&F 6 & 7 and then finally became utter trash with F&F 8.
Now, a spin-off of the characters of those films will be a reality with ‘Hobbs & Shaw‘ and the direction they decided to take was of ‘GI Joe 1’ and ‘Kingsman’ nature and level of insanity in death defying acts and stunts, while also human abilities. Which is quite interesting to see that the production thinks that this direction will work based on the series prior history, but time will tell if audiences will eat this up or make into one of biggest box office bombs in history.
