One thing about that whole crew, they always bring their A-game for these films. All of them are entertaining (the second one was the low point).

I go back and forth on these. They're certainly entertaining but the constant misuse of physics just makes my brain hurt.  Star Trek and warp drive? Sure, why not.  A tank going 90MPH down a highway?  I don't think so.

They should just re-release the 5th movie in theaters and call it F5: Refresh

When 8 came out I frequently joked the next one had to be "Fast 9 from Outer Space".

It looks like they decided to tone it down a bit and return the series to its low key street racing roots.

I remember seeing the first one in the theater and thinking it was the dumbest movie I'd ever seen. Of all the projects Vin Diesel could have had his career focus on... well, there were like three other choices, but still.

Hey, I'm just glad that, at long last, we finally get our John Cena heel turn.  That was something MeekMahan simply would not allow.

What are the real problems with the tank (assuming it was as modded as any FF vehicle)?  You'd need unbelievable cooling on the drivetrain [and new gearing], but that would just be open-loop water cooling (presumably with everything hot enough to boil the water for maximum effect).  You'd be limited by water-range, but the fuel range of a tank can't be all that great.  Surviving the ride would be a problem, but since FF are effectively superheroes, don't sweat it (can a tank survive the ride?).  As a bonus, you wouldn't have to worry about another tank following you (who else would mod a tank to do this?  And fill it with "superheroes") as there wouldn't be a highway behind you.

Generally speed is limited by aero, which is a complete non-factor in a tank.  The suspension is probably the critical point (after you tank care of the drivetrain), and is pretty tricky.  I'd assume you could build such a tank, but modding an standard "offroad" tank as a highway specific vehicle might be an entire redesign.  I'd just say "they are superheroes  whose power is to drive, and survive in any vehicle" and be done with it.

Technically, since the Trekverse is non-causal (you can go back in time and change the present), FTL travel is possible.  Just don't ask how many times they casually change the timeline zipping back and forth faster than light, nevermind the instant communications (which still violates relativity, but can probably fudged by being "just barely non-instant").

And in the one after that, they make an uneasy peace with Godzilla before developing mutual respect, eventually leading to Godzilla becoming part of the Family.

I spent the last twenty years thinking I was "above" these movies (plus I had just moved away from Orange County which was getting a little too street racey for me at the time) so I avoided these movies with disdain.

But I just married a lady who was a big fan and she convinced me to give them a chance.  And wow, they were very entertaining and I like them a lot.  Hobbes & Shaw was fun and I'm really looking forward to this new one.

(same thing happened to me with pro wrestling.  I looked down on it until a coworker invited me to a pay-per-view BBQ and it was so much fun, I've been hooked ever since.)

The question is will it be better than the Highlander rebooot with Batista cast as The Kurgan.

Hobbes and Shaw benefits hugely from not having Vin Diesel in it. He is easily the worst part of these flicks.

All I can picture is Dave, pointing at each victim and laughing in Drax's voice & demeanor "HAHAHA! I cut your head off! That's so funny! You must be so embarrassed to die!"

Seriously, now all I can imagine is Dave Bautista as The Kurgan, but with Drax's ridiculous literalism, in every damned scene of the movie.

Hopefully he'll do slightly better than that, but I haven't seen him in much outside of Guardians. And I'm sure that most Farkers thought I was joking that he was cast as The Kurgan in the Highlander reboot.

Besides all that, it's still not exactly clear what's going on plotwise

One the fast boat from Bali to the Gili Islands they had a movie, although with no sound, just the subtitle. Its was Hobbs & Shaw. I think it was the only movie they had since we say it again on the way back from the Islands. Well, Ms. Frothy and I and our adult children managed to turn our brains off, and now this action atrocity is a family event every year on Festivus. Best scene is when they are insulting each other...

"You just reminded me. That exactly why I hate working with you."
"It's your voice."
"It's your nasally, prepubescent, Harry Potter voice."
"Every time you speak, just imagine this for a second...
It's like dragging my balls across shattered glass.
And it hurts."

I'm actually glad they are focusing more on ridiculous stuff like this than glorifying street racing, which just encourages idiots to Paul Walker themselves or even kill innocent drivers or bystanders with their stupidity.

"Le eventually veered over the double yellow divider and into oncoming traffic, Madera alleged. The victim slammed on the brakes of her vehicle, but Le "never brakes," Madera alleged. Le drove straight into the victim's vehicle, hitting her head on, forcing her backward. Her insides were ripped apart and she died instantly, Madera said."
