Then Johnson runs down the side of a building, they engage in a car chase scene that makes Wile E Coyote s pursuits of the Roadrunner look downright plausible, and things start to feel, well, numbing. As scene after scene of interchangeable male bravado between Hobbs and Shaw gets interspersed with increasingly ludicrous moments of CGI violence (not really helped by turning the villain, Idris Elba s rogue spy Brixton Lore, into a literal superhuman), the effect starts to be exhausting, a sense of being pummeled into submission by the loud, empty spectacle rather than being energized by it. Why does this supposedly joyful celebration of all things big, dumb, and silly feel so joyless? Why does the madcap potential of the early going peter out with such lunkheaded ponderousness? One could certainly blame helmer David Leitch (as our critic Ignatiy Vishnevetsky notes, The staging of loud, destructive, effects laden set pieces seems to elude the director s grasp ), or take umbrage with the obvious fakery of the CGI action, compared to something like the excellent Mission: Impossible films. And both are valid criticisms.
