"The first xxx movie had a certain charm with it's unnglamerous but likeable super agent engaging in wild stunts. It Had a decent story for that type of fantasy movie and was a decent a budget movie. That can't be said for this one however and Vin Diesel wisely stayed away from this really bad A movie. It has alot of good actors in it who must have gone insane to appear in this flick. If it were a bad b movie you could say: "well that's what you get" but this was a higher budget flick. It has a hero who convinces murderous gnngstas (these characters do exist in this movie ) to help him fight evil bad guys by telling them that what's good about this country is that you can still car jack (and kill innocent people) a block away from the capital building! Yes that's the mentality of this movie which aims to please fan's of gangster crap rap. I am not saying that this means all rap is like gangsta rap lots of it are ok. but this movie embraces that gang rap mentality all the way, and this has nothing to do with anyones race either which some dude comment claims that I mean. In fact it's not too smart to assumes that anyone who objects to gangsta rap or movies that support that attitude hates people of color. I am presently dating a african american who HATES GANG RAP MUSIC and this movie too! A bad movie is a bad movie and this is the only superagent movie that tries to shoot so low. Or the only one that is this poorly written and dumb.
It has stunts that are silly and weren't meant to be, like a car traveling down railroad tracks and of course it is a perfect fit as the wheels burn away!. Samuel L jackson ,a man of some class, must have had a large house payment due to be in this travesty.
The blu ray print is very good but nothing can save this thing from being the bad movie it is. The first xxx was mindless fun but this one was a huge bomb for alot of good reasons. Give me bourne, bond, undercover brother, shaft even but spare me this monstrosity."
An Awesome Action Film!!!

"I don't get all the bad ratings, because I thought this was a great sequel. It has plenty of action, special effects, and comedy. Ice Cube breathes new life into the xXx series. When Xander Cage and many other spies are killed in action, Agent Augustus Gibbons needs a new xXx that's tougher and with more attitude. He hires an inmate who is a former US Navy SEAL named Darius Stone to travel to Washington D.C. and track down military men who try to overthrow the U.S. government and assassinate the President, led by a corrupt Secretary of Defense named George Deckert. Deckert plans on assassinating the President while he is making the State of the Union Address. While the new xXx and his team be able to stop him? I highly recommend XXX: STATE OF THE UNION!!!"
