Storyline

Agent Augustus Gibbons has selected an imprisoned former US Navy SEAL Darius Stone, a new agent in the XXX program, travels to Washington D.C., where they track a splinter faction of the U.S. military that attempts to overthrow the U.S. government and assassinate the President, led by Secretary of Defense and former 4-Star General George Deckert, Stone's former commanding officer whom he once led a mutiny against. But he's been targeted for assassination by a radical splinter group of dissenters deep within the United States government. The new XXX agent must uncover the insurgents from within. It is the nation's only hope to stop the first coup d'etat in American history. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Trivia

Two scripts were written for consideration. One by Rich Wilkes, involves pirates in Southeast Asia, and the other, by Simon Kinberg, involves a plot set in Washington, D.C. The Simon Kinberg script was selected. Open casting calls in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C. area were made, on August 19, 2004 and August 26, 2004. Shooting would start on September 14, 2004 and go through October 1, 2004. Rob Cohen had earlier suggested that that both scripts may be made, with the one not used for xXx2, becoming xXx3.

First 40 mins SUCKED...The rest? Who knows.
28 April 2005 | by (Vancouver B.C) – See all my reviews

I walked out after the first 40 mins. It was just too much to take. I have a very high tolerance for "bad" films(I really dug the first xXx) and have only walked out three time before (Dungeons and Dragons, Bad Company, and The Musketeer). This ego driven piece of garbage was just intolerable. Every time Ice Cube (a man I quite like) mugged for the camera I cringed. And Willem Dafoe is SHAMELESS. After 40mins of excruciating dialogue and NO PLOT I had to leave. I'm sure this movie is about something and there's some cool stunts, I just wasn't about to waste the rest of my evening in hopes that the film got better.

So to be fair I can't really give this a review but I can say that life is short and sometimes we just gotta put our foot down and not take the crap the studios are feeding us. Because this was clearly a movie made on autopilot. Boo!
