Trivia

The fighting style Donnie Yen's character uses against the NSA soldiers at the end is Wing Chun. Several moves Yen uses include a Lap Sau (Block/Deflect), Fak Sau (Knifehand), Tan Sau (Sky Palm Block), the Wing Chun Front Kick, and the signature Lin Wan Kuen (aka Chain Punch). Donnie Yen portrayed the legendary Wing Chun grand master, Ip Man (who was also Bruce Lee's teacher), in Ip Man (2008), Ip Man 2 (2010), Ip Man 3 (2015), and Ip Man 4 (2018). See more »

Goofs

Since satellites have to be as light as possible and the fact, that they are normally orbiting on stable orbits, their thrusters and fuel tanks are very small and only allow very limited movement such as evading space debris or redirecting. Even if all the remaining fuel would be directed to space, forcing the satellite towards earth, it would still take hours for it to actually reach the Earth's atmosphere. See more »

Quotes

Xander Cage: [Upon seeing Darius Stone arrive in Xander's long-lost 1967 Pontiac GTO musclecar] That's a hell of a car!
Darius Stone: Yeah. Gibbons told me to keep an eye on it. He said I'd know why when I need to know why. Now I know why.
Xander Cage: It's exactly the way I left it.
Darius Stone: I took it on a date or two.
Xander Cage: [laughs, with a wink]

Puts the S in Stupid......
7 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

I'm not quite sure why Xander Cage returned, I just wish he hadn't.

This movie is so low brow, you might mistake it for a caterpillar. It's devoid of anything that looks like a plot or decent character development.

Instead its cheesy show off time with lots of tat's, juvenile bravado, sparkly overstated jewelry and guns from "da hood". This is a film that feels, in my opinion, like it was made by a 15 year old nick-named "flipper" (as in hamburger flipper) and his gormless, pimply friends. We all know thats not true but you get the idea.

In short a genuinely excruciating experience that puts the S in Stupid.....one out of ten from me.
