The primary reason to view this film is Deepika Padukone - - everything else is secondary.

This movie is a great sequel to the first XXX movie: totally cheesy and unapologetic about it. It seems almost self aware with the terrible, cliched dialog and over the top action scenes/stunts. Don't go into it expecting a serious thriller or action movie and you might be pleasantly surprised.

Okay I'm not gonna defend the negative comments. I'm here to say this Baba thoroughly enjoyed it. From Vin to the UN cast marvelous. Haven't seen the others, the library doesn't have them but I'm putting the word out to friends I will see them eventually.

This is the first XXX movie I have watched. Needless to say, it will be the last. I imagine the target audience for this nonsense is the 13-20 age group? I should have known better since I am not a Fast-n-Furious fan either.

This was hilarious! If you are looking for a serious spy film look elsewhere. This is as outlandish as the first XXX , but it also makes fun of itself. From the sound effects of someone running in corduroy pants to demonstrate "kung fu power" to stop motion so you can see the bad guys' heads bounce of metal tables, to super cliche characters, to that stupid coat, it is all just plain fun.

I don't understand the negative comments. If you watched the other XXX movies, then this is right on target. If you didn't want to see the others then it stands to reason that you won't like this latest installment. I thought the characters were true to their roles. I mean no one is taking this film seriously right? It's meant as light entertainment. I found it to be just like the others. Just a vehicle to watch Vin or Ice

The film was thin on plot and is all about the stunts and show casing an international assemble of actors doing those stunts and delivering "witty" lines. Besides African Americans Ice Cube,and Samuel Jackson, we have:
Vin Diesel born in Alameda County, California
Toni Collette Australian
Donnie Yen Hong Kong
Deepika Padukone, born in Copenhagen, Denmark, is an Indian model
Kris Wu (Chinese name: Wu Yifan) is a Chinese-Canadian actor
Ruby Rose born in Melbourne, Australia
Tony Jaa born in the northeastern province of Surin, Thailand
Nina Dobrev born in Sofia, Bulgaria
Rory McCann from Glasgow Scotland.
Michael Bisping born in Liverpool, England
Andrey Ivchenko Born in Ukraine
Neymar born in Mogi das Cruzes, São Paulo, Brazil
Ariadna Gutiérrez-Arévalo born in Sincelejo, Colombia
Josh Pagcaliwangan Philippines

on and on and on ...

I thought it was a parody movie until I realized they were dead serious. The practical stunts they did were pretty good, but too often they used cg that would be bad for tv let alone a big budget Hollywood feature. The characters are so on the nose and the most unbelievable thing in the movie is that Donnie Yen had a hard time beating up Vin Diesel. Please. That fight would last 10 seconds and 5 of those seconds would be Yen dusting his hands. There's a plot twist that isn't really surprising when you realize there's a third act coming, and Ruby Rose... Wow! Why is she on-screen? She's a horrible actress and her character is evil. She wounds 3 hunters and lets a lion eat them alive... slowly. They weren't even poachers; they were hunting legally which funds conservation efforts. You know a film is bad when you're routing for the bad guys. The only positive thing about this film is Donnie Yen. He's an amazing fighter and screen presence and should be the star of Hollywood features.

Nubile young bods, hot rods, multi-ethnic cast and impressive stunts populate this movie. Unfortunately not much else is on display, other than another bad *** woman leading the proceedings. This too has become routine and slightly boring, even with the excellent Toni Collette involved. If you're an adrenaline-junkie (and not into "story")--this might be more to your taste than mine. All said, not a total waste of time; but pretty close. :)

If you enjoyed the first two movies at all, you should watch this. If you haven't seen the first two movies, go watch them, but also you could watch this without seeing them. I'm the biggest sucker for stories about found family, and the ensemble cast here makes for a ridiculous, explosive fun.

Opening Narrative, Part 1 of 2:

You know how I got the idea of Triple-X program? Skateboarding and swimming pools. ... Previously, skateboards did not fly. They were transporting adolescents. Then came 1977. A drought hit southern California. It was so severe that rich people could not fill their swimming pools. the focus is then ignited. A teenager came up ... I could skate on these empty pools and fly away. Dogtown and Z-Boys. Have you seen her? It is a movie. Does not matter. Our hero begins to do things with a skateboard no one had seen. Thing the world considered impossible. That boy needed the drought. The world needed these empty pools. Hence Triple-X. ...

Opening Narrative, Part 2 of 2:

Do you feel safer than yesterday? I know I do not. The most powerful and expensive military in the world and we still terrify the bombs in shoes at the airport. What is the cause of that? The soldiers only know how to follow orders and fight in wars. But we friend, are not at war. We are in danger. So there Triple-X. ... Do you know who feels safe? Those who rule. The powerful ones.
The ayatollahs par excellence with all the "Dolas". That is because those sanctimonious sometime ... They made a pact with the devil. They exchanged freedom for security. And we... the village... We lost both. So there. Trilpe-X.
