Plays less like a sequel to XXX than a parody of it and the whole action genre.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
April 29, 2005
Perfectly mindless fun, where the emphasis is on the mindless.

A childish movie of the shoot 'em up/blow 'em up/here come the flame throwers and the cool-looking weapons genre.

Did I enjoy this movie? Only in a dumb mindless way. It has whatever made the original XXX entertaining, but a little less of it. Does it make the slightest sense? Of course not.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 28, 2005
There isn't a fresh moment in the entire 100-minute running time. The tediousness is impossible to dispel.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
April 29, 2005
A humorless foray of noise and fast-cuts signifying nothing much.

There's no wit or imagination, just the thump thump thump of exposition and explosions.

A completely generic action film with nothing to hold your attention and no one for you to care about.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

'Rather then saying the film strikes out I think I'll use a little bowling jargon to sum it up: "XXX" is a turkey!'
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
April 29, 2005
xXx: State of the Union is better than the first entry, which is sort of like saying a mallet to the scalp is better than a hammer.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 29, 2005
Functions less as a movie than an overactive adrenal gland.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 29, 2005
So generic and derivative...that it's hard to turn your brain off and even enjoy the action.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

The stunts and explosions are effective, but the dialogue and characters are not.

Now, rather than looking tough, former NWA badass Ice Cube simply seems constipated, and rather than being intimidating he is strangely ingratiating.

As for female characters, in the xXx franchise, there are only two types of women: the ones with big breasts, and the ones with even bigger breasts.

The plot swings between pathetically implausible and aggressively stupid.
April 27, 2005
Despite its title, XXX: State of the Union is neither pornographic nor political.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

XXXcruciating!
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4

The sequel, rather than being big and dumb, is just dumb.
Full Review | Original Score: D+

So primitive, it must have been written in lizard blood on animal skin.
