I had not seen the first xXx movie when I went to watch this so I
basically had no idea what was xxx all about, except for guns and
high-speed cars of course. I really wish I hadn't gone to the movies to
see this flick, it was really terrible.
For me it was kind of hard to get a grip from the beginning because there was nothing that would have explained who were the main characters and what was their goal and so on. This left the characters really shallow and the dialogue between the characters was something out of a bum disco.
Ice-cube cannot act. Really. He is like a stiff crash test dummy on the screen provided with the fact that he can blurt out some lines. And oh yes, the one-liners. Horrible, I mean the one-liners were probably the worst that I have ever heard, almost ripped my ears off. I don't know how good a rapper Ice cube is but I think it would suit him better than acting. What I can't but wonder is that why Samuel L. Jackson ever agreed to do this film.
And then the aluminium rims. Almost every scene begins with the filming of shiny and bright rims. All in all I think the whole point of the movie was to advertise rims. This film should be buried somewhere along with such films as Battlefield: Earth and Dungeons & Dragons.
I really loved the Millenium series, starred by Lance Henriksen, which is
why I bought the film. Obviously at some level it was a mistake.
Mutant/monster films are usually very bad and this film is no exception.
The basic idea itself is not totally judged to fail (well nevertheless this film would never have been a success, even with a good director & actors), but the way it turns out this is just a B-class movie. The scenes that are supposed to be scary seem more funny to me and the critter is not credible at all.
However, watching this film with group of friends in restless mood makes this film shine as it is so unintentionally hilarious.
