Product Description

Action sequel starring Ice Cube as agent xXx. In Washington D.C., the centre of American power, an attack is being prepared on a target you would never expect. In the midst of intrique and a major power play, xXx discovers that the greatest threat to the United States comes from high within the US government itself. Agent xXx must somehow stop the unimaginable from happening - an attack on the US capital itself.

From Amazon.co.uk

With a core audience of gameboys and hot-rodders aged 25 and under, xXx 2 is the kind of action movie that requires literally no thought to enjoy. With Vin Diesel's original character just killed in Bora Bora (for details, see the uncensored unrated director's cut of xXx), Ice Cube steps in to play bad-ass, and the whole franchise takes on a hip-hop edge that's almost admirably absurd. The asinine plot is anarchy in Washington, D.C., as an insanely hawkish Secretary of State (Willem Dafoe) plots a Capitol coup just as the President (Peter Strauss, playing it straight) is giving his state-of-the-union address. All of this is prefaced by Cube's recruitment as a former Navy SEAL turned new-xXx, escaping from jail (Dafoe's character put him there), hooking up with an old flame who runs a chop-shop full of the world's hottest wheels, and reuniting with his old commander (Samuel L. Jackson) for a bullet-train climax that feels like Mission Impossible Lite. You could argue that Diesel's the smartest guy in the franchise for cashing out early, but xXx 2 gets the job done in passable fashion, with action veteran Lee Tamahori delivering the goods while he waits for a grown-up script to come along. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

State Of The Union is the sequel to 2002's Vin Diesel fronted James Bond actioner XXX, this time the all action grunt is supplied by Ice Cube as he hunts down Willam Defoe, who leads a military splinter cell who plan to overthrow the US Government.
The film crashes and bangs from one action scene to another as our 'hero' steals sports cars, speed boats and tanks whilst only pausing breath during the gunfire and explosions to utter some cheesy dialogue " I was born looking guilty", all the time we're deafened by a nu-metal/rap soundtrack.
All black men are cool tough street-wise guys, white men are square and middle class, whilst all the women parade around with large cleavages shaking their 'booty'!
The action scenes though spectacular aren't too convincing, in fact the final chase scenes are almost 'cartoonish' resembling a cross between Roger Rabbit and The incredible.
The whole movie is utterly preposperous but never dull and boring so at least it has some redeeming features if they are few and far between.

Well since I had seen Triple X with Vin Diesel, I thought that this next title was going to be good. How wrong I was. The story line was there, the action was there (in a few places) but the acting was dry well except for Samuel L. Jackson who was the same, but his lines could of been better. But to choose Ice Cube as the next XXX agent was half/half. Image was alright, but his acting was terrible.
Some of the action shots were like they were from Thunderbirds (orignal series) they were just missing the wires.
The only other person that I did like out of the whole film was Xzibit who was funny like he is on Punk My Ride (MTV) so that made it up, but only just.
My last comment would be to bring back the old directors, writers, actors and make a decent film.

What were they thinking. Having Ice Cube playing an action hero. The dialogue is limp. Some of the special effects leave a lot to be desired. The only good bits worth watching the film for are the nice array of cars and trucks used in the film.
If you want to see an action film that makes sense...don't get this film.

Format: DVD
2002's "xXx" barely had a brain cell to brag about and couldn't quite escape the levels of ineptitude on hand with its excellent action set pieces. Enter 2005's ill-advised sequel "xXx 2: The Next Level", a pointless sequel that multiplies the clinical ineptitude of the first offering and in turn makes "xXx" look like the height of action ingenuity. If "xXx 2: The Next Level" is to be remembered for anything, and it won't be, it is for being another failed attempt by talentless rapper turned talentless actor Ice Cube to escape the clutches of family-oriented comedies. Thank God for small favours then, as it would seem Ice Cube isn't likely to crap all over the action genre for the time being. Naturally in a motion picture this downright terrible, nobody else involved escapes unscathed and each in turn now have a black mark on their resumes.

With Vin Diesel's first xXx agent behind him, Agent Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson) wastes little time in locating his replacement. The new xXx in question is tough guy Darius Stone (Ice Cube), a man now charged with the task of defusing a power struggle raging amongst national leaders. Of course, this all serves to provide numerous action set pieces as Darius faces all kinds of danger in his first mission.

Ice Cube's acting career has yet to boast a single admirable motion picture. At least, not one in which he has featured heavily. As new xXx agent Darius Stone, Ice Cube is predictably awful, furrowing his brow as his only way of displaying some sort of disdain and donning his annoying little grin whenever things seem to be going his character's way. As Agent Augustus Gibbons, Samuel L. Jackson has absolutely no excuse to get involved with such awful movies as this uninspired sequel.

Watching Ice Cube play the hard guy would-be spy makes you realise - wow! Vin Diesel actually DID have charisma after all!

All pretensions to the part being about spying and stealth are out of the window - the first movie had an appeal of being like a Bond movie on steroids; This one is just action, and could be any action franchise a few movies in. In fact, in terms of substance this could easily have been direct to video for all the weight the star and story carry... however, there are bangs for your buck on display here.. the actions scenes are as big budget as they are ludicrous. The opening scene has some promise with Samuel Jackson taking on the bad guys in his own headquarters, but when he steps into the wierd custom job car you know there is a franchise identity crisis on the way - is this XXX or Fast and Furious 4??

In short, this is brainless action - budget is on the screen, but not with the script. Ice Cube plods through the role giving it no heart, panache, or even self knowing parody. Daniel Defoe and Samuel Jackson should know better.

i found this lacking in spirit, script and acting. Samuel L Jackson was as good as he could be but the writing was painfully predictable and the completely ludicrous storyline was unoriginal. this was a waste of time. The 'love story' between 'XXX' and 'Lo' was excrutiating but to be fair, there is some good action in bits. killing off Vin Diesel was a mistake as this film makes the first one look like a jem and killing him in such a pathetic anticlimax with no storyline ruined the film about 2 minutes in.

i was disappointed and if they wanted to make this a better film, they should have kept Vin Diesel even though the first one was rather painful. they are pulling the storylines straight out of the unoriginal james bond book (and as a lover of James Bond, i find it insulting! ;)

sorry, but not impressed.
