Vin Diesel and director Rob Cohen signed on for this film two months before the original opened. Both ended up leaving the project. See more »


When Darius jumps from the presidential bullet train on the bridge, he is in free fall for 41 seconds before hitting the water below. The bridge looks to be only a couple of hundred feet high. In reality, a human body in free fall would fall approximately 6000 feet in 41 seconds, assuming a stable skydivers body position. The distance fallen would be greater if falling in any other body position. See more »

A horrible, horrible movie
31 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't mind mindless, escapist entertainment ... in fact, that's why I rented this DVD. Having seen the original XXX, I knew this wouldn't be that great of a movie, but I was counting on the action sequences to pull me through.

Well, apart from the beginning of the movie, XXX:State of the Union was a huge let down from even my small expectations. I guess the budget wasn't high enough for cool, exciting action sequences so they substituted old-school 80s style scenes for most of it, and suffice to say, there's a reason why most action movies don't do that stuff anymore -- it's boring. And since the action sequences are the only reason to watch something like this, and they suck, there's no real reason to give this movie even a moment's consideration.

The plot involves Darius Stone (Ice Cube) replacing Vin Diesel's character as the new, improved xXx and trying to foil a plot against the President of the United States. Darius proceeds to throw people around, impress the ladies, blow stuff up etc etc etc. The basic concept is a hip-hop James Bond, and while it sounds like a cool concept that you couldn't possibly mess up, no, these guys messed it up... its not Ice Cube's fault, he's no actor but I've seen him do better than this if the movie has a script and some direction.
