xXx: Return Of Xander Cage

Cage returns from the dead to join forces with the best xXx’s in a hunt for a device serving as a weapon to terrorist forces.

Great display of talented cast from all edges of the world with jaw-dropping stunts but were all killed by mindless script writing.

The story is something that is so formulaic, and if Diesel says he’s born for this sh*t, then its undeniable were eating most of it. We’ve seen this already, in fact, we can even foretell what might happen.

Not sure if its somewhat parallel but its like the Fast and Furious franchise just without Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson and the gang.

But on the good side of it, xXx: Return Of Xander Cage, successfully improves in terms of its adrenaline pumping stunts and creative action pieces and on these areas, Vin Diesel doesn’t seem to do anything bad. Kudos as well to his co-actors in their well acted roles.

Its funny, its loud, its pure entertainment and we can’t really blame the movie to be so predictable since its enjoyable to watch.
