Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.20.16] action



I am not ashamed to admit that I love xXx. I love the concept of a guy who loves extreme sports getting himself mixed up with the government. I love how silly it is. I love Vin Diesel as Xander Cage. It's fun, doesn't take itself too seriously and is ridiculously watchable. Now, nearly 15 years since the original was released, Xander is making a return.


xXx: The Return of Xander Cage brings back Xander as the high octane loving extreme sportsman who is left for dead after an "incident." The entire thing is a cover for him to take on a secret assignment for his handler Agent Gibbons played by Samuel L. Jackson who is reprising his role from the first movie.


Along for the action packed fun are Ruby Rose (of "Orange is the New Black" fame), Nina Dobrev, Toni Collette, Donnie Yen and as if he doesn't pack enough ass kicking: Tony Jaa!



I'm a little disappointed Rob Cohen isn't also making a return behind the camera and this time around D.J. Caruso is tasked with capturing the ridiculousness. As long as it stays on the light side of the action spectrum, this should be a a whole lot of fun. The trailer certainly looks promising.


xXx: The Return of Xander Cage opens January 20, 2017.



Recommended Release: xXx
