Product Description

Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) is an extreme sports fanatic who gets forcibly conscripted into the US secret service when his latest stunt lands him in trouble with the law. Sent to Prague with instructions to infiltrate an ex-Red Army terrorist group, Xander soon discovers plans to develop a deadly biological weapon intended for use against various cities across the globe. But Yelena (Asia Argento), the girlfriend of terrorist leader Yorgi (Marton Csokas), already has her suspicions about the US agent, and the growing tension between the two of them means that Xander's cover might be blown at any moment.

From Amazon.co.uk

Vin Diesel is no James Bond, and he doesn't want to be. That's why XXX announced Diesel as the adrenalin-junkie Bond of the PlayStation generation, copying the Bond formula so shamelessly that this action-packed silliness would be a Bond movie if it starred Pierce Brosnan. Reuniting Diesel with his Fast and the Furious director Rob Cohen, XXX has an attitude (if not a brain) all its own, plucking Diesel's Xander Cage from his celebrity as an extreme sports renegade, recruited by a National Security Agency big shot (Samuel L. Jackson) to foil a nasty Czech villain (Marton Csokas) who's eager to depopulate Prague with remote-controlled biological weaponry. Toss in a sulky, sultry Russian agent (Asia Argento) and you've got extreme Bond-age for anyone who thinks tuxedos are passé. With a handful of eye-popping action sequences, XXX launched a movie franchise with a cool guy, another cool muscle car, and plenty of box-office sizzle. --Jeff Shannon

I loved this film when it first came out and I love it still to this day, 10 years after it was first released.

xXx focuses on renegade Xander Cage, a carefree hellraiser who is thrown into the world of international espionage and terrorism "overnight", to use the term. It isn't long before the NSA recruit him and send him to Prague in the Czech Republic to investigate a terrorist group, 'Anarchy 99'. However, it isn't long before X finds himself befriending the group he is supposed to be investigating and so he must choose between the mission or his "friends".

Right from the off here, there are immediate parallels to Bond - the cars, the women, the gadgets all the way to the general plot of the film. Despite this, xXx is a new breed of secret agent. Where Bond plays by the book, Xander opts not to! Where Bond 'must' save the world (in the sense that it's his job), you feel that, in the context of this film, Xander 'has' to save the world, even though he may not really want to do so.

I also loved some of the characters in film. Ok, most of them are 'Eastern European', but their motives are rather believable, in my view.

The music scene and the extreme sports segments of the film are really good. Once again, Director Rob Cohen delivers the sense that xXx is a new breed of secret agent.

If I had to select any kind of flaw with the film, it would definitely be the casting of Vin Diesel as Xander. Sorry but, for me, he is laughable to appaling, even at the best of times, in my honest opinion!

Overall, xXx is a great film in my book and one that I would not hesitate to recommend to you! Witness a new breed of secret agent here - one that is not afraid to not play by the rules!!

Watch this film, essential viewing!

What exactly do you want here? Shakespeare? Vin Diesel plays a video game style action hero/antihero who lives life for driving sports cars off bridges. Like a certain substance I could mention it does exactly what it says on the tin. If this kind of movie is not your bag, well so be it, but if it is then this is high octane fun with some good stunts, some good one liners, and the antihero wins the day and gets the girl. It is noisy, there are explosions, and yes on a couple of occasions you get to see a great deal of bare flesh, enjoy it on the simple level that it is designed for and you will not be disappointed.

Format: DVD
I'm not a huge fan of action movies, but I've quite enjoyed both of the XXX films. The original, starring Vin Diesel, is chock full of things that go boom, and I don't think the story is all that bad. I was especially happy to finally get to see Asia Argento for the first time - she is, among other things, the daughter of one of the true greats of European horror. I must admit I'm still not quite sure what all the Vin Diesel hysteria is about, though. He's certainly a different breed of actor, but I thought he had a few moments of inconsistency here. One thing I really don't understand is the inevitable comparisons between XXX and James Bond. I would never have even thought of comparing them because I see them as two completely different characters occupying opposite ends of the secret agent spectrum.
So, anyway, Vin Diesel plays Xander Cane, a rebel with an X Games mentality and a penchant for sticking it to the man. It's enough to get him noticed by NSA Agent Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson), and - needless to say - Xander passes Gibbons' test and soon finds himself ensconced amidst a group of dangerous anarchists in Prague. The bad guys are your typical malcontented youths who oppose everything society stands for and revel in the idea of unfettered freedom. What makes them special, though, are the scope of their operation and the plans they are cooking up to make the whole world all but implode. The newly christened XXX knows how to walk the walk and talk the talk, and that puts him in a position to learn just what Anarchy 99 is up to. Naturally, there's a woman thrown in the mix - the mysterious Yelena (Asia Argento), a pivotal member of the organization who might very well be more than she seems.

By bernie TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 27 Dec 2003
Format: DVD
This movie is like a study of Bond and Bourn "The Bourne Identity (TV Miniseries) (1988)", action movies. Toss in the innocent enthusiasm as in "If Looks Could Kill (1991)", There are gadgets women plots and sub plots. But this movie is mostly about action. This is not one of those thinking movies or realy a talkie. It does hold your attention.

Xander Cage is an innocent dissident minding his own business. The business being stealing the governor's car and displaying reckless abandonment all in the cause of freedom. He is pressed into serves ala "Remo Williams - The Adventure Begins (1985)" in lieu of a prison sentence. It seems that the NSA needs someone of his reputation and abilities for short time. Will he comply and if so how short of a time? Will he quit when he is told to do so? And is there a love interest or just one of those spy vs. spy things?

If you want a movie that's pretty entertaining but you don't want to think too much, this movie meets those requirements. Russian bad guys are quite laughable but in a 'I'd quite like them to win' sort of way.
Vin Diesel is an entertaining action hero, and brings a lot of energy to what could have otherwise been a standard role for another actor. Asia Argenteno is also surprisingly good given her 'acting' background. Main russian baddie Marton Csokas pulls off a fairly convincing accent, and manages to be quite drool-worthy for someone who looks like he hasn't washed his hair for some time.
This film certainly will brighten up a dull afternoon at home. Worth a watch.
