Even more absurd and implausible than the first XXX movie, State of the Union is less inspired and technically competent than its predecessor.

Explosions abound, along with expository dialogue and a ham-tastic triad of performances from Sam Jackson, Willem Dafoe, and Peter Strauss.
This is that rare B movie that's rooted in gut-level stirrings of power and retaliation.
So primitive, it must have been written in lizard blood on animal skin.
You'd need a crane to suspend your disbelief.
So devoid of craft, it looks as though it were filmed by robots.
A crisp adventure that grows increasingly audacious (the story climaxes with a huge battle waged in the Capitol) if only lightly enjoyable.
In light of the cinematic abomination that is "XXX: State Of The Union," Vin Diesel made the right choice by refusing to do another "xXx" movie unless Rob Cohen continued to direct the franchise.
Youngsters and action junkies won't mind the film's ridiculous gadgets, secret tunnels and hairsbreadth escapes, but everyone else will have to check credibility at the door.
Well, they sure blowed 'em up good in XXX: State of the Union. And they pimped many rides. XXX is a car nut's fantasy.
full review in Greek
A big, dumb action film that exceeds low expectations.
An entertaining movie that doesnt have a lot going on but you can appreciate the action sequences not as good as the first but entertaining enough!
Not a bad film really, just run of the mill action flick that wouldn't look outta place from the 80's. A nice opening sequence that looks pretty smart and hi-tech, usual stuff packs the middle and it finishes on a VERY poor cgi looking finale.
A black man's 'James Bond' basically, but 'XXX/Bond' is a little chubby and porky in this sequel hehe not sure casting was correct with Ice Cube or whatever he calls himself.
Hmmm...Who should be the next xXx, a secret agent devoting his life to loyalty and honor with more skills than a Navy SEAL, Spetsnaz soldier, and KSK soldier combined. Oh I know! Let's get a gangster we found of the streets with no loyalty, no self control and no acting ability! Our enemies are screwed now!
So, what is the best thing about the movie? It's xXx. As bad as it is, it's still xXx. That means I can handle watching it...For about 20 min.(The movie is an hour forty minutes)
As for the bad, there is a lot of it. Ice Cube makes Shaq look like a good actor. I'll admit he's a good rapper but just because you can make a few decent songs doesn't mean you can act worth crap. He has pretty much no personality, apart from the occasional explosion.
But they couldn;t just take one crappy actor/rapper! No they had to take another one, in the form of Xzibit. Contrary to Ice Cube being a great rapper and a bad actor Xzibit happens to be a bad actor AND a bad rapper! 2 for the price of 1!
The whole premise of the movie is down right uncreative and ridiculous. The villain has murdered more people than our last war, but he NEVER get's caught for it? And why didn't Willem Defoe just kill Gibbons?! Then nothing would have stood in his way! And why is Ice Cube put under so little securaty. Do they REALIZE this is xXx?
But the worst part about it? They KILLED of the first xXx! You;re telling me Ice Cube has a better chance of surviving a maniacal dictator than Vin Diesel. No. Just No.
Ice Cube needs to learn to leave acting to actors. Not rappers, not athletes, actors.
A very poor sequel when the first was so good. Just looks wrong and the plot is laughable at times. Stick with the first.
