He was a bad guy then. He turned tweener during FF8.
I'm not bothered by him killing Han and seeking retribution, I think the rest of the cast forgiving him is more concerning.

Re: Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

Saw the movie yesterday.

It was fun but felt too long and over the top (more than the F&F movies anyway).

Any guesses on who the robotic voice belongs to ? My money is on Cypher

China Loves The Rock



Box Office: ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ Scores $102 Million Debut in China, Nears $600 Million Globally

Quote:
Universal’s “Hobbs & Shaw” returned to first place on the international box office charts, thanks to a massive $102 million debut in China.

The “Fast & Furious” spinoff, starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, collected another $120 million overseas, boosting its foreign tally to $441 million. “Hobbs & Shaw” is nearing the $600 million mark globally, with ticket sales currently hovering at a sizable $588 million.

In China, “Hobbs & Shaw” set numerous records, including the biggest August opening weekend ever and the second biggest Hollywood debut of the year behind Disney’s “Avengers: Endgame.” It also marks the franchise’s second-biggest launch in the Middle Kingdom, a record still held by 2017’s “The Fate of the Furious” with $184 million.

Wonder why Rock is so popular in China?

The Rock says..


Why did the baby in the pram keep crying?
She didn't enjoy being pushed around.

Re: China Loves The Rock

the rock seemingly is living the life most of us would hope for, eg find success and keep on growing it.

I don't remember a point in time where it didnt seem like rock's life was just on the upward slope.

I remember that time; it lasted for 4-5 years when he was starring in garbage like The Tooth Fairy. His upward trajectory since Fast Five has been remarkable.

difference between rock and most people during that time though, rock always had a very successful position in wwe to go back to if his movie career really reached the point of no return. He wasnt hinging the success of his whole life on making it in movies.

I would be like bill gates trying to become a bus driver, its not really needed but if all else fails hes still got microsoft.

When he was cut from CFL and had only $7 in his pocket. When everyone hated him as Rocky Maivia. He went through a lot of downs before hitting it big. It couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Plus he's extremely charismatic which helps a lot.

Re: China Loves The Rock

Wasn't Hobbs & Shaw meant to be disappointing financially before China?
