Trivia

Actress Nina Dobrev, a genuine thrill seeker by her own admission, was so displeased to see that her character in this film was going to be just some "tech geek", that she kept asking director D.J. Caruso to give her some kind of an action scene until he gave in and added a part where she gets to use a gun. However, because this hadn't been the plan, she became the only cast member in an action scene to not get any sort of gun training beforehand. See more »

Goofs

One of the first things that would burn away from a satellite on re-entry are the solar arrays as they are very fragile. The skin would be a very close second. Very few parts, such as the fuel tanks, survive the re-entry process. See more »

Augustus Gibbons: You know how I came up with the idea for the Triple-X program? Skateboards and swimming pools.

A Typical Money Making Entertainer with Full dose of Action Stunts
18 January 2017 | by SAMTHEBESTESTSee all my reviews

xXx Return Of Xander Cage Review : Finished watching xXx in Hindi dubbed version so my review will be friendly to Indian audience may be. I have not seen previous films of this franchise so my might won't help you but that would a plus point because my views about film will be individual and fresh. xXx Return Of Xander Cage is a typical Action drama film, which entertains you but does not impress if you are looking for something different or new. Script has nothing new to offer so obviously Kick ass Action scenes, Stunts and Dialogues saves the film from being not a Crap. So many Twists and Surprises are there in the 2nd half which are predictable. Acting field had no potential so just forget about it, but want to mention Deepika here cause she has good enough screenspace in film which actually made me feel proud as an Indian. Cinematography is Breathtaking, Visual Effects are Awesome, except couple of scenes which looks animated. Action stunts are something for which you can tolerate this film. Screenplay is good, not boring at all. Direction is pretty Good, nothing impressive but less minuses helps it. Overall it is a Typical Action Drama Money Making and Box Office Friendly Entertainer which has appeal for limited i mean Mass audience. There is nothing bad in watching it at least once, after that you can decide yourself that you want to give it a repeat watch or not (I can't give it a Repeat Watch). I'm giving 6/10* to this Action Drama flick as i think with this script a better movie can't be made.
