You'd think after Fast and the Furious made so much money Vin Diesel wouldn't have to resort to doing this slop.

When I was younger I thought the first XXX was good. But, I couldn't sit through 10 minutes of it now. The 2nd one was one of the worst movies I have ever seen. This movie needs a miraculus revamp to have a chance at being decent...I don't see that happening.

Maybe Asia argento will have a sun-tan in this one;

at the end of triple-x 1, Asia and Vin were on a tropical atoll and Asia's skin-tone looked like she'd flown to the island after being in an Alaskan winter.

XXX was pretty hip, though (in my opinion). The kid outside the Goth nightclub at the beginning looked exactly like Dario Argento.

it looks like a solid director but from the same guy who wrote terminator salvation, makes you go ahhhhhhh so close, but no. It means itll be a Vin Diesel run movie with no story and decent action. Id skip it already :(

Somewhere in Hollywood, California an idea for a good movie just died...

Im not sure but in the second xxx movie wasnt Xander Cages character assainated. It wasnt an actual scene in the movie but a scene with Samuel L Jacksons character gets a report from some agent guy reporting Xander had been assasinated while on holiday. Could someone correct me if im wrong. And yes the last xxx movie was a complete rubbish and one of the worst action movies of all time. Rightb up there with Street Fighter. Not sure why they are bothering with another.

Right you are MADDAZ, it was mentioned in passing by two random guys along the lines of: "Did you hear that Xander Cage got killed in Bora Bora last night?" "Bora Bora, man, how do i get assigned to those missions!" (Both laugh)

I swear, XXX2 was terrible and not only because Ice Cube was so clearly out of shape that they never even showed him in anything less than a T shirt in order to make sure we never saw how pudgy his torsoe was, as if we couldn't see his gut hanging out in EVERY FREAKN' scene. Seriously, with buff MF'ers like Wesley Snipes or 100s of famous rappers, they went with ICE CUBE? It was almosty like a joke.

Then they went back and tried to re-hash every dialogue from the first XXX. It was the worst case of a sequel cashing in whatever credibility generated by its own original since, well, 2 Fast 2 Furious.

Don't go hating on Ice Cube, man! He may have been out of shape and does crappy movies as a rule now, but Friday is a timeless classic and his spots in Ghosts of Mars, Boyz In Da Hood, and Three Kings were excellent as well.
