  • Gibbons observing as two other NSA agents argue against having an average citizen as a secret agent, then give Gibbons the green light.
  • Xander rides in the economy class of an airplane and explains his mission to a teenage boy, telling him that it's all part of a first person shooter video game.

  • Additional footage before Xander enters the techno dance club.
  • The Ivans discovering the blood splatter dart after Xander shoots the police officer.

  • R-Rated version of Yorgi receiving a phone call from someone with information on Xander Cage. It features three nude girls on a bed behind him (the R1 DVD has it blurred out).
  • Additional dialogue after Xander's "Nothing like Fresh Powder" line between Xander and Gibbons regarding Xander disobeying orders.
  • Extended version of the Prague police raid on Yorgi's castle.

Lousy and incredibly entertaining
5 November 2003 | by thnielsSee all my reviews

Let there be no doubt: The acting sucks. Even Samuel L. Jackson's performance is mediocre and definitely unexpectedly so. The plot is ludicrous, the characters unbelievable and the acting (oh, I mentioned this already) dilettante. Effects had gone overboard and factualities of science wildly disregarded. Yet! Yet, this movie was quite the entertaining one. Subtly (purposely?) funny at places completely overshadowing the dysfunctional slapstick that absolutely didn't cut it, and above everything else - it didn't hesitate. The action was brilliantly choreographed and impressively implemented.

  • Thomas Nielsen


p.s. Samuel L. Jackson should really not have been here. He should've been sitting at a table in a bar talking to Quentin Tarantino over a cup of coffee about a prequel to Pulp Fiction or what not. He definitely should not have been here. Definitely not.
