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.

So bad it deserves another star
6 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

Whether he's in them (Chronicles of Riddick) or not (2 Fast 2 Furious, and now XXX2), sequels to Vin Diesel movies stink. Not that the original were masterpieces, but at least they showed evidence of having been put together with a modicum of thought.

Here's the shooting schedule for XXX2: scribble a bad-guy-in-the-White-House-plots-an-overthrow script on a piece of toilet paper, then blow stuff up, slap a blonde around, get Nona Gaye to show a bit of booty, wreck various vehicles and throw in as much macho posturing and 'attitude' as possible. By the way, what exactly is 'attitude'? Because it looks suspiciously like 'obnoxiousness' to me.

Since coming to international attention with his excellent contemporary Maori drama Once Were Warriors, director Lee Tamahori appears to have lost the ability to construct a coherent film. He derailed the Bond franchise with 'Dire Nother Day' and now ditches his last shred of movie-making self-respect with this brain-liquefying drivel.

Nobody expects an acting masterclass from an action movie, but this proves that actors are only as good as their dialogue. Samuel L Jackson and Willem Dafoe (who evidently didn't embarrass himself enough with Speed 2) give shamefully mercenary performances, while Cube is about as convincing an action hero as Harry Knowles.

Who'll be XXX3? The person should be different... unexpected... have their own attitude. I vote for Maggie Smith.
