I didn’t expect much of xXx: Return of Xander Cage because I wasn’t a fan of the previous movies to begin with. But Vin Diesel disappoints me… I thought he would have done better now that he has grown as an actor and a producer… he knows more about movies these days than before. There were a lot of flaws in this movie, and sometimes you can get pass that with having a good story but it missed that too. Diesel was pale, slow and uncharismatic and delivered only a few good action-scenes and nothing else. The big star in this movie in my eyes was Donnie Yen, who I’ve been following for several years in the asian movie industry. He was what made this movie watchable for me. He is so cool and his martial arts skills are awesome! But even he couldn’t save the movie that much unfortunately.
If you liked the previous movies you may find something here to enjoy, or if you are a big fan of donnie yen as me. Otherwise I’m pretty sure this one is not for you.

No special features either.

About Philippe Antonio

My name is Philippe Antonio and I love movies! Have a movie collection that I wouldn't even trade for a new Ferrari (the gasoline is to expensive) ... I love to draw and have my art on another website Blackbrush.se. Besides that, I also love Gadgets and Zlatan ... well, football generally. I Founded this website for my comic figure at first but has lately just focused on movie/game news, reviews and that stuff. So hope you liked it!
