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}

Goofs

When Zeke uses the main gun of the hijacked tank to blow a hole in the US Capitol Building so Darius and Steele can get inside, he is seen loading a sabot shell into the gun. This round is incapable of causing an explosion as seen in the film, or making a hole that size in the building. See more »

Alternate Versions

The UK version was trimmed slightly for a scene where a man is stabbed from behind to remove "detail of the knife emerging from his stomach". This was done before formal classification by the BBFC and was done after being given advice by them during post-production so that they could secure a 12A certificate. See more »

User Reviews

forgettable but not altogether disposable
2 May 2005 | by Special-K88See all my reviews

Unnecessary sequel about ex-Navy SEAL-turned-imprisoned convict Darius Stone (Cube)—court-martialed years earlier for attempting to overthrow a four-star general (Dafoe) during a black bag operation—who's recruited by NSA agent Jackson to become the new XXX and thwart that same general—now the Secretary of Defense with his own agenda. Obvious and by the numbers the film manages to throw out enough loud action scenes and cheesy one-liners to be some fun, but it's awfully derivative and fails to distinguish itself from the standard action genre. Works fine if you're just looking for a rush, and can accept a hackneyed plot with a cardboard Cube in the lead. **
