xXx: Return of Xander Cage ‘Mini-Review’


Review By Arclas

Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) is back after a decade of self-inflicted exile bouncing around the world performing stunts and acts of adrenaline induced awesomeness. An orbiting satellite gets hijacked and in typical xXx fashion, the government stages something that Xander see’s right through. He organizes a team of misfits and adrenalin junkies and do what they do best.

This is the third in the xXx series and true to form, it does not disappoint with the amount of explosions and fight scenes. This movie employs something that the other two triple X movies did not, they went for teams of triple X’s rather than just rely on solo artists. This allows director D.J Caruso to bring in the great Donnie Yen, Ruby Rose, Tony Jaa and Kris Wu.

Kick some ass, get the girl, and try to look dope while you’re doing it. That is the code of the triple X program established the Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson). It’s a great philosophy for a band of renegade thrill seekers bent to right the wrongs of corporate and government bodies.

Explosions, gun fights, fist fights and high-flying adrenaline. This is the combination for every triple X movie and the same is true for this one. With quick humour and the previous formula mentioned, XXX: Return of Xander Cage is pretty good. There is very little in terms of plot, but in its defense, one does not expect a plot while watching these types of movies. This time I will give two reviews. The first is overall as a movie: 6.5/10 while the second rating is for an action/adventure movie that entertains on sheer awe-inspiring stunts and explosions 9/10.

Movie Mashup:

The 3 Expendables movies. That’s it and that’s all. Get a bunch of action stars and tell them to be great on-screen and do what they do. Also, if you have seen the first xXx then you have basically seen this one. Lastly, The Avengers. Samuel L. Jackson brings forth a band of people for the sole duty to regulate the government and the higher echelon of society. He also has a pair of glasses with one lens blacked out. (Eye patch!!) Another honorable mention is the A-team. “I would never tell him this, but they are the best at what they do, and they specialize in the ridiculous”.
