Xander Cage returns with stunts and Style. XXX-3 movie review

We need someone who move like them, fight like them. It’s time to be patriot. They aren’t no more portraits just rebels and tyrants. So, which are you? I am XXX.

Plot summary: The plot revolves around XXX (It should be). Xander Cage considered to be dead reveals he has gone into self-imposed exile. Xander was put into a mission to chase a group of criminals who possess Pandora’s Box, a device that can destroy the world (Off course it should be). Cage forms a team and clash against the antagonist Xiang. That’s the 107 minutes action adventure.

Watch the Trailer

Goosebumps review: A must watch for Vin Diesel and Deepika Padukone. Few known concepts in Diesel colour. Goosebumps guaranteed.

(3.5 / 5)

Vin Diesel shines as Xander Cage. Whatever franchise Diesel is added to will be a crowd puller. XXX is no different, the action sequences are tailor made for Diesel. He looks stylish and performs his role with ease. As usual he is in almost every frame which is a huge plus.

Deepika Padukone as Serena Unger will bring in whistles from the Indian-Subcontinent. She is fast as Diesel and being an agent she holds on to the role perfectly. Her confidence attire plants her in the audience minds. The only side-line would be her forced American accent to match the Hollywood standards which is too much to ask from an Indian origin. But she does manages it to an extent.

The cast selection worked up to a mark. Donnie Yen as Xiang was ok for the role. His phase in the action scenes are delight, probably the next one for Jackie. But lags to impress as an antagonist. Other cast are less appealing as the whole movie travels behind Vin Diesel.

The previous versions of the same franchise has done enough rule breaking and new dimension in action sequences. So it would be difficult to bring in inventions but the movie manages to pull it. The Satellite crashing scene, zero-gravity fight in the air are well thought but less impressive (Already watched it in few flicks like Inception).

For an action lover the film is a must watch, particularly for Vin Diesel (Off course Deepika). Leaving the logical loop holes Xander Cage’s return is a treat to watch.
