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}

Trivia

With the exception of shooting scenes at the Abraham Lincoln Memorial, and the Ronald Reagan Building, most of the scenes taking place in Washington, D.C. were shot on sound stages including the main chamber of Congress, which was 30 feet high, and 450 feet long. It was so good, that representatives of The West Wing (1999) television show, expressed interest in buying it. See more »

Goofs

When Steele and Darius are discussing the presidential chain of command, Steele says, "President, VP, Speaker of the House, Secretary of State..." as the chain of command to leave the Secretary of Defense as President. That skips President pro tempore of the Senate (after Speaker of the House) and Secretary of the Treasury (after Secretary of State) so it would require six leaders be assassinated, not "just" four.

Quotes

Toby Lee Shavers: You want me to hack in? Into The U.S. Department of Defense? We're talking 500 acres of hardware. Cray supercomputers, encryption chips, not to mention more firewalls than the NSA, CIA and the IRS combined.
Darius Stone: Exactly.
[hands his bag of chips to Lola]
Toby Lee Shavers: Hold my chips.

First 40 mins SUCKED...The rest? Who knows.
28 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

I walked out after the first 40 mins. It was just too much to take. I have a very high tolerance for "bad" films(I really dug the first xXx) and have only walked out three time before (Dungeons and Dragons, Bad Company, and The Musketeer). This ego driven piece of garbage was just intolerable. Every time Ice Cube (a man I quite like) mugged for the camera I cringed. And Willem Dafoe is SHAMELESS. After 40mins of excruciating dialogue and NO PLOT I had to leave. I'm sure this movie is about something and there's some cool stunts, I just wasn't about to waste the rest of my evening in hopes that the film got better.

So to be fair I can't really give this a review but I can say that life is short and sometimes we just gotta put our foot down and not take the crap the studios are feeding us. Because this was clearly a movie made on autopilot. Boo!
