Film Review- xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage

Vin Diesel’s extreme sportsman and reluctant spy explodes back onto the screen for his most spectacular mission.

Xander ‘xXx’ Cage (Vin Diesel) has been living in self-exposed exile ever since he was blackmailed into taking on an anti-terrorism role for the NSA. But now his handler, Agent Augustus Eugene Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson), has tracked him down to counter a new threat to global security. Deadly alpha warrior Xiang (Donnie Yen) and his henchmen have seized a device that controls every military satellite in the world. Reluctant Cage agrees to take them on – but only if he can recruit his own thrill-seeking crew.

Vin Diesel returns to the action role he made his own back in 2002 for this relentless action adventure, packed with breathtaking stunts. His danger-loving team includes Ruby Rose of ‘Orange is the New Black’ fame, while ‘IP Man’ star and highly skilled martial artist Donnie Yen makes a truly formidable foe.

So what did i think of it?

Bearing in mind that the xXx franchise is one of my favourite Franchises i went in thinking “please don`t ruin it” i was pleasantly surprised if i`m brutally honest. With an amazing techno feel soundtrack and the usual “over the top” action scenes that are synonymous with the XXX franchise mixed in with some great cut scenes and humour it made for some great watching.

It`s good to have Vin Diesel back in the lead role for the third film in the trilogy (even though we have waited 15 years to see him reprise the role)

Final Verdict- ★★★★

If you are an action movie enthusiatis and / or a fan of the XXX franchise then i suggest you don`t miss this film. It has all of the original pace and energy of the original xxx and the sequel state of the union and gaurentees you a great night out. 100% one not to be missed action fans!
