Fun but deeply, ridiculously silly.
December 29, 2010
Vin Diesel, every teen's fantasy action hero.
September 8, 2009
Despite the blatant rips, XXX's storyline remains entertaining enough.
July 14, 2007
As an action director, Mr. Cohen is competent, but this film -- which is pretty much as non-stop as an action movie can get -- needed a director with a little more finesse.

If Dubya and Dick Cheney had made their very own post-9/11 patriotic propaganda movie for the teens they need as globalisation fodder, then this would be it.
December 6, 2005
Not since the days when Joel Silver ruled Hollywood and musclebound subliterates vied for supremacy on the big screen has the industry spawned a phenomenon as garish and confounding as Vin Diesel.
December 6, 2005
Okay, that's it. My summer of movies has been completely pissed on.
July 5, 2005
With all the stimulating action sequences you can ask for, a touch of class and some fine comedic moments, you'll leave the theater wanting more.
January 7, 2005
Cohen's brainless bombast proves to be a perfect fit for this shamelessly, deliciously ridiculous reinvention of James Bond-style spy shenanigans.
February 1, 2004
XXX seems like a missed opportunity -- not a commercial one, mind you, because the flick will no doubt make a mint -- but as an honest-to-goodness re-evaluation of spy flicks and their relevancy to an ever more youthful audience.

really just boring
January 6, 2004
XXX is a dream role for an action star, and ... Diesel is the perfect man for the job.
September 6, 2003
The filmmakers are so intent on bludgeoning their audience into submission that after 10 minutes you've become numb.
June 27, 2003
XXX happily wallows in the fact that it's 100-percent loopy, kinetic and silly.
May 20, 2003
The wondrous opening sequence was better than any Bond film, and things were looking up until the characters started talking.
March 2, 2003
Sporadically entertaining, this is nevertheless seriously hampered by a very choppy screenplay.
February 12, 2003
Bond-inspired? Certainly. Likely to have decades of life as a classic movie franchise? Let's hope not.
February 8, 2003
For an action-packed, brain-dead testosterone fest, I have to admit Rob Cohen's XXX isn't that bad.
January 8, 2003
A thrilling ride with plenty of style and lots of unbelievability.
