December 8, 2005
A big, dumb action film that exceeds low expectations.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
July 7, 2005
Delivers the no-thinking-required, over-the-top goods, with some surprising digs at the original film providing the icing on this tasty bit of cinematic junk food.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

You are supposed to walk away entertained, and I did.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
May 21, 2005
Viewed on its own trashy terms, it succeeds brilliantly.

May 20, 2005
XXX: State Of The Union is an action movie for liberals, and as far as empowerment fantasies go, it's a hoot.

Ice Cube makes an appealing lead and no-one ever mentions that he might be a little on the tubby side to really cut it as an action hero.

Is it too late to toss Ice Cube's name into the hat in the new James Bond sweepstakes? I'd be down with that.

May 2, 2005
This is that rare B movie that's rooted in gut-level stirrings of power and retaliation.
Full Review | Original Score: B
April 30, 2005
Intellectually as dumb as a door post, but Ice Cube provides enough fun.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
April 29, 2005
It has just enough sociology, and is wholly dismissive of physics and logic. Still, the last half-hour's unbridled action raises it to the original's enjoyable-trash level.
Full Review| Original Score: 2.5/4
April 29, 2005
Any movie that has the President quoting Tupac had an idea somewhere along the way.
April 29, 2005
A crisp adventure that grows increasingly audacious (the story climaxes with a huge battle waged in the Capitol) if only lightly enjoyable.

With Ice Cube at the wheel, it delivers all the adrenaline a junkie could ever want. Just don't pay too much attention to anything else going on in the movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 29, 2005
There are really only two kinds of big-budget action movies: stupid, and good and stupid. Surprisingly, XXX: State of the Union is good and stupid.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 28, 2005
One of the best sequels ever made without the star of the original... The only reason to criticize is if you just don't like big, unrealistic action.
April 28, 2005
Cacophonous, ridiculous, and overblown, but it got on my good side.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
April 28, 2005
Ice Cube brings his trademark charisma and street sensibility to a film that wouldn't be nearly as entertaining without it, though he gets considerable help from better-than-the-material-deserves performances by Jackson and Dafoe.

April 28, 2005
Opens explosively and never lets up, with Lee Tamahori (Die Another Day) in full command of the action and Simon Kinberg an equally astute writer with a flair for linking socko action set pieces with terse characterization.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 28, 2005
James Bond's producers aren't going to like Die Another Day director Lee Tamahori delivering a sleeker, more contemporary thriller than he made for them.
April 28, 2005
Ice Cube keeps the action-movie franchise alive with a pleasing one-two punch of humor and burly physicality.
