Video: Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's Fate of the Furious haka

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's powerful haka with a girls' soccer team in The Fate of the Furious can now be watched in full.

Paramount Pictures supplied the clip to Newshub to mark the film's recent release.

The scene sees Johnson's character in the blockbuster movie franchise, Luke Hobbs, lead his daughter's football team in a haka with scores tied and two minutes to go in their championship game.

Johnson first wrote about the haka in August last year, saying it was influenced by his Polynesian heritage.

"It's 100 percent he most REAL and AUTHENTIC scene in the movie. No acting. Just from our hearts and WARRIOR MANA (warrior spirit)," he posted to Instagram.


"To our Polynesian culture the HAKA is extremely emotional and spiritual. A pre battle ritual where we call upon the recognition of our ancestors and to give us strength. And if need be, we are prepared to die today, only because we have lived greatly and proudly as people."

"My biggest role here was making sure that that spiritual aspect was embedded into the people that I was teaching, he said in 2016.

The film's choreographer Layne Hannemann sent the haka to New Zealand to be blessed by Māori elders.

It's not the first time Johnson has performed a haka in a film - his character Maui does one in Disney's 2016 animated film Moana.

Johnson promised viewers the scene would make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up - now you can see for yourself.

The Fate of the Furious is currently playing in NZ cinemas.
