    A threat to the Bond franchise? Not a threat so much as a salute. I don't want James Bond to turn crude and muscular on me; I like the suave style. But I like Xander, too, especially since he seems to have studied Bond so very carefully.

    It's too ridiculous, too flatly acted, too action-packed, too, well, fun.

    As Diesel says, ''I like something fast enough to do something stupid in.'' Mission accomplished.

    It's hard to hate a movie, even one this droolingly crass, that knows how to laugh at itself.
  5. Less a movie than a collection of pretty cool action set-pieces, linked together with some seriously awful acting and dialogue that even Dr. Evil couldn't deliver with a straight face.

    There's a lot of goofy spy game crap going on, peppered with lesser quality action sequences. Ugh. I'm just so depressed and disappointed right now. I need a shoulder to cry on.
  7. Even in the summertime, the most restless young audience deserves the dignity of an action hero motivated by something more than franchise possibilities. Movies like XXX -- a big 000 -- don't deserve our $$$.

    Action fans rejoice, xXx re-engineers Bond for a savvier, more cynical generation. A new hero for a new movie experience without the more dated cliché’s of the 007 empire. Trust me, you’ve never seen stunts like this. Vin Diesel is legit, a titan among ass kickers. Give him his due. Expand

    I thought it was a pretty good action movie. It was action packed from start to finish, original, and rather fun to watch. I enjoyed it and I am rather suprise to see that users didn't enjoy it as well. Expand

    This was a nice action movie. Although it was not one of Vin Deseil's best movies.

    The action scenes of this movie were terrifically mind-blowing, but the poor plot and mediocre voice acting screwed it up. "xXx" isn't a movie that I recommend Expand

    You tend to know what you are getting when you watch a Vin Diesel movie. With XXX I feel like it was a bit far fetched. The plot and the dialogue was a little out there, even for Vin. I mean, okay, this guy is a stunt man who can do pretty crazy things and not die. How does that qualify him to potentially be an undercover operative for the government? This movie seemed like someone trying to bench too much, slinking one side back and forth, not ever really reaching a full rep. There were a few stunts, pretty women, music, and humor to kind of smooth things over some but ultimately, Its on the lower end of Vin's talent. If you are a action junky, watch it and decide. I have a soft spot for the Des, so I gave it a try, but there's not much I can defend for this one. Expand

    xXx is still infected by Cohen with the same chaotic rage of Fast and Furious; however, its not as insufferable, considering the action covers more ground than just aimless car chases. Expand

    Vin Diesel belongs in videogames, not movies. I don't know how anyone could stand watching this putrid movie. Some of the worst acting I've ever seen, terrible plot, and offensively bad dialogue. Somebody would say that the movie isn't meant to be taken seriously. Neither are James Bond or Die Hard movies and I liked them a hell of a better than this garbage. Avoid this movie like the plague. The ending was an embarrassment to any action movie. Vin Diesel needs to make another Riddick game and drop his acting career. The Boiler Room was the best acting he's ever had and he didn't even play a significant role in that movie. He is convincing as the Riddick character, too bad the only thing the last Riddick movie had going for it was the fantastic Sci-Fi environment. I would give XXX a negative score if I could. Expand
