Hands down, this has got to be the stupidest movie I've ever seen. First of all, Vin Deisel is the single worst actor in the world. How this guy got onto the big screen, I'll never know. Then comes the story. Somehow we have to have a movie with as many extreme sports in it as possible, but have a plot. Didn't work. Then, Vin Diesels character is chosen because he's supposed to be the best. He sucks as a secret agent. He gets caught several times, is sloppy and destructive and doesn't know how to use his brain. Oh, and you'll love the mini heat seeking missile, (Made out of a cheap video camera, if you look closely) that tracks down the heat of a bad guys cigarette butt and kills him.

I had a hard time sitting through this movie. It went from bad to worse, to pathetic to insulting.

Don't see this movie, even if you've lost a bet.

Fast paced, and frantic. These words alone describe xXx! The world of the greatest spy, James Bond, bangs head first into the world of the adrenalin junky.

xXx has you on the edge of your seat from the get go - sure maybe the plot isnt much - a terrorist group with no apparent demands trying to blow up the world - but it sure as hell gets your blood pumping through your veins. Heart stopping action and a buff Vin Diesel combine to make this one of the best 'adrenalin' movies yet. In the footsteps of such movies as 'In Gods Hands' xXx has taken it one step further over the edge.

Let yourself escape without guilt. James Bond wouldnt mind.

Ever had a guilty pleasure? I know a guy once who used to take a tub of chocolate ice-cream out of the freezer and leave it in the refrigerator over night. In the morning he was left with a nice cool half gallon of chocolate sludge which he would proceed to pour of a huge bowl of Captain Crunch in what would be a ritual celebrating his sugar shakes to come...Anyway, you will find that "Triple X" is a lot like that. Its ripe with characters who are much cooler and sexier than most of us, doing cool and sexy things that are far to cool and sexy for us to afford. Its James Bond for the Play Station generation and it works surprisingly well. I know, its total eye candy but except for the Thunderbirds looking sub at the end, I found myself enjoying it. When it was over, I felt like jumping over something or getting tattoos. Like I said, guilty pleasure! Don't feel bad about allowing yourself to like it; it is what it is and it's not claiming Oscar caliber.
