Storyline

Xander "XXX" Cage is a thrill seeker who until now has been deemed untouchable by the law. NSA Agent Gibbons forces XXX to cooperate with the government to infiltrate an underground Russian crime ring, and avoid going to prison.

Xander must combat an organization led by a clever, ruthless and nihilistic Yorgi whose first target is the city of Prague. Written by Artemis-9

Goofs

When Xander parachutes into the compound, it appears he pulls his silver handle on the left ribcage, on his parachute to jettison the canopy. In reality, the silver handle is the reserve parachute deployment handle. In real life he would have pulled the cutaway handle on his right ribcage, which is the cutaway handle. Pulling the reserve handle without pulling the cutaway handle will result in a 2-canopy out situation, which would be potentially dangerous. See more »

User Reviews

 
James Bond meets Rocky Balboa with **** stunts
29 January 2005 | by FEAveraSee all my reviews

For plot, xXx rates a 1.

For acting, a 0.

For action, a 10.

This movie is unbelievably stupid, but somehow people (including me) like it. Just watch it, take it for what it is, and go with the flow. Vin Diesel plays an "extreme protester" recruited by "The Man" to accomplish some vague mission. Don't get too concerned about the mission, or anything else for that matter. Anything resembling a plot is present only to justify the explosion or parachute jump or whatever impossible physical challenge the stunt-masters have come up with. Just be happy you rented this instead of paid to see it in a theater. Invite your friends over, have a few beers, and enjoy!!!
