The first Fast & Furious spinoff, Hobbs & Shaw, follows the titular characters, working together to stop a super-powered terrorist, looking to get his hands on a deadly virus. It’s the kind of action-packed romp that we’ve come to expect from the FF franchise, but with a decidedly science-fiction slant.
On the home release for the movie–which arrives on November 5–there are plenty of special features. One of which features WWE star Roman Reigns knocking out a cameraman. In the featurette “Keeping it in the family: A conversation with Roman and Dwayne,” Dwayne Johnson and Joe Anoa’i, Reigns’ real name, discuss Samoan culture and how important it is to them to have it represented in the movie. They also discuss their Samoan heritage and its wrestling roots.
However, the best part of the feature comes from the final moments where we learn Anoa’i knocked out a cameraman during the filming of Hobbs & Shaw. “He’s gonna have a hell of a career, in Hollywood,” Johnson said. “If he doesn’t knock out any more cameramen.” During an action sequence, Anoai was throwing a club, and it hit one of the cameramen, knocking him out.
Because the two are laughing about the moment, it’s pretty obvious the cameraman escaped unscathed, but there is a brief moment in the video shown where you can see the club leaving Anoai’s hands and realizing he made a huge mistake.
Hobbs & Shaw on Blu-ray
While the movie is available digitally now, the vast majority of the special features, including commentary from director David Leitch, is only available on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K UHD. In addition, the home release contains an alternate opening, deleted scenes, and numerous features about the fight sequences, making the movie, Hobbs’ family, and the insane elevator stunt.
In GameSpot’s review of Hobbs & Shaw, Chris E. Hayner said, “Ultimately, Hobbs & Shaw is probably the movie you want it to be. It’s funny with massive-scale action, the likes of which you rarely see outside of this franchise. It’s loaded with car chases, explosions, and fight scenes in which every character should repeatedly die. It’s just unfortunate that the pieces of the film that aren’t soaked in action don’t add up. This movie could have been incredible. Instead, it’s just a lot of adrenaline-fueled fun. Sometimes, though, that’s more than enough.”
