Despite the blatant rips, XXX's storyline remains entertaining enough.

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.

Cohen's brainless bombast proves to be a perfect fit for this shamelessly, deliciously ridiculous reinvention of James Bond-style spy shenanigans.

XXX is a dream role for an action star, and ... Diesel is the perfect man for the job.

XXX happily wallows in the fact that it's 100-percent loopy, kinetic and silly.

Sporadically entertaining, this is nevertheless seriously hampered by a very choppy screenplay.

For an action-packed, brain-dead testosterone fest, I have to admit Rob Cohen's XXX isn't that bad.

A thrilling ride with plenty of style and lots of unbelievability.

Vin may not yet be a Bond, or a Terminator, or even Conan the Barbarian. But he's got presence and charisma.

It may be stupid, but it knows it's stupid, although it definitely drags in the middle and could have done with being twenty minutes shorter.

Mr. Diesel may have the body of a thug, but his face betrays a vulnerability that makes him an unusually human action hero, like a teddy bear on steroids.

It's dumb fun slapped silly, a new franchise inspired by the Bond films that's not far from the porn its title promises; the film is a veritable orgy of outrageous stunts.

Acción, chicas, estilo peculiar de un Diesel que llena la pantalla con su carisma...

Diesel's a limited actor but a great performer - he just exudes cool. It's his charisma -- coupled with the raw sex appeal of Asia Argento's X girl -- that makes Rob Cohen's movie tick.

It all sounds absurd, but in its best moments, XXX is infused with an authority that's rare in action movies.

The AAA of action, XXX is a blast of adrenalin, rated EEE for excitement. And Vin Diesel is the man.

xXx does the same thing to the Bond film that James Ellroy's novels have done to the conventional detective novel: rendered it obsolete.
