XXX
A Movie Review

MPAA Rated - PG-13

It's 1:53 Long

A Review by
The Dude on the Right
Letís see. You get unbelievable action. You get hot chicks in skimpy outfits. You get things blowing up. You get hot chicks in skimpy outfits. You get lots of people shooting at each other. You get hot chicks in skimpy outfits. You get a studly action hero taking off his shirt and flaunting his ripped body. You get hot chicks in skimpy outfits. You get cool gadgets and guns. You get hot chicks in skimpy outfits. And yet you get so much more. The movie is "XXX" and you will get exactly what you expect.

The basic storyline goes like thisÖ Vin Diesel is Xander Cage. Heís become somewhat of a cult classic on the internet by performing incredible stunts with other peopleís vehicles. His latest escapade involved stealing a Senatorís Corvette, jumping it off a bridge, and floating to safety via a parachute. All the while heís narrating into some cameras about how the Senator doesnít have a clue as to music, video games, and the internet. Enter the NSA. Theyíve got a problem, namely that their agents keep getting killed trying to spy and get info on Yorgi (Marton Csokas) and what heís up to. So Agent Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson) decides to try to get some extreme sports-type people to help, people with criminal records who are a little more expendable. Three dudes make the initial cut, Xander eventually shows how he is the man for the mission, and faced with the possibility of jail and not being able to do cool stuff for the rest of his life, or being able to do cool stuff for the rest of his life, well, Xander decides to help the government.

So itís off to Prague.

Initially Xanderís mission is to get some information on Yorgi and his buddies, but when he does his job extremely well, his mission gets turned up a few notches. What he eventually finds out is that Yorgi is building a crazy device to send deadly gas to various cities. Itís up to Xander to save the day, and of course save the girl, Yelena (Asia Argento).

Do you really care about the story? I doubt it. You want to know if stuff gets blown up, if Xander does incredible stunts to save the day and a couple of lives, if the world is saved, if the dudettes are in skimpy outfits, and if "XXX" is a fun movie. "XXX" is all of these.

I know why some critics wonít like "XXX." Maybe itís because "XXX" isnít as sophisticated as a James Bond film, maybe because it does have cheesy one-liners, and maybe because I donít think Vin Diesel will be getting any Oscar nomination anytime soon (although I think he should), but "XXX" is a movie about having fun at the movies. Come on, Xander escapes one time using a serving tray to slide down some railings. Whatís not fun about that?

You already have an idea about what to expect at "XXX" so that should dictate whether or not you spend your bucks on the movie. Me, I loved every cheesy minute of "XXX" and give the movie 4 Ĺ stars out of 5. If Vin Diesel kicking lots of ass isnít your cup of tea, youíll probably give it zero stars. Do yourself a favor and stay home so the likes of us can enjoy.

Thatís it for this one! Iím The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
