  1. This is a B movie rooted in gut-level stirrings of power and retaliation.

    What's fun is that the road to that climactic Capitol showdown is paved with one ridiculous and relentlessly edited set piece after another.
  3. A smooth blend of visual special effects, exceptional stunts, fluid photography, sharp design and a possible best-selling soundtrack.
  4. Opens explosively and never lets up.

    There are really only two kinds of big-budget action movies: stupid, and good and stupid. Surprisingly, XXX: State of the Union is good and stupid, which makes it an immediate improvement over 2002's meatheaded "XXX."

    Theater of the absurd, masquerading as an action thriller.

    The whole movie defines perfect summer entertainment. Too bad it came out in April.
