Story


Vin Diesel reunites with the director (Rob Cohen) and the producer (Neal H. Moritz) of the blockbuster The Fast and the Furious for this summer's high-octane, action-packed espionage thrill rider from Revolution Studios.

Diesel stars as Xander "XXX" Cage, the notorious underground thrill seeker who until now has been deemed untouchable by the law. NSA Agent Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson), forces XXX to cooperate with the government to infiltrate an underground Russian crime ring and avoid going to prison.

Betting XXX can succeed where other conventional spies have failed, Gibbons sends XXX to enter this world of crime undetected, using his natural athletic prowess and a whole lot of attitude. Enlisted for a dangerous covert mission, he must combat a clever, organized, and ruthless enemy far beyond the scope of his experience. This summer, the fate of the world lies in the hands of a new breed of secret agent.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..there's one thing that XXX offers, it's the opportunity to see what a Bond film might be like with a Sylvester Stallone-type action hero in the lead role..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..Momentum, motivation and story are all swallowed by simple sensation, and the film finally exhausts itself for lack of stylistic imagination..”
by Sean Axmaker [Seattle Post-Intelligencer]
“..The film is basically a Bond adventure featuring orgy-loving street thugs rather than Cognac-sipping, Baccarat-playing womanizers..”
by Mark Halverson [Sacramento News & Review]
