Diesel stars as former extreme sports athlete Xander "XXX" Cage, notorious for his death defying public stunts. Betting he can succeed where other conventional spies have failed, Xander is recruited by NSA Agent Gibbons (Jackson) to become a different kind of undercover agent.

    This movie was badass. It should get an anatomically correct Oscar.

    Check your brain at the door

    As long as you didn't try to think about how he does half the stuff he does, this movie is awesome!!!! Two hours of pure adrenalin and a really hot guy. What more can a girl ask for?

    I saw it today. It requires a good amount of suspension of disbelief, but it's very entertaining.

    Loads of amazing action and stunts are packed into the movie from start to finish, and it's definitley the definition of "cool". Vin Diesel pulls his part off very well, and even has a few funny lines. There's a fair amount of T&A for a PG-13 movie, which is good, because, of course, this movie is geared toward teenage fanboys like me.

    Basically what I'm trying to say is that for what it is, this movie was pretty cool, entertaining, and action packed.

    I think Rob Cohen could be Hollywood's newest action director. After how fast paced and action packed Fast and the Furious was, that was just blown clear out of the water by xXx! The action was non-stop and was just plain fun.

    The dialouge was out right horrible in some parts, but if you can ignore that, and let your imagination go, you will really enjoy this movie. This is why I love movies, because stuff like this can come to life. I'm looking forward to xXx 2 either next summer or 2004.

    The Corvette bridge jumping scene was great! And being a huge muscle car fan, that 1967 Pontiac GTO took the cake. Sweeeeet!

    I saw the movie on Saturday night and was glad that I took the last couple bucks out of my wallet to see it. The movie was very enjoyable and Vin Diesel delivers another action packed performance. The greatest part is that Vin Diesel proves that he can be the anti-James Bond. Altho the trailers for the new Bond flick at the beginning of the movie sparked my interest as well.

    I loved it!

    The action was great, and those scene with a shirtless Vin Diesel, were the highlight of the movie. yum.

    Was it my eyes or did the female lead look like Rachel Weisz(from the Mummy)? Cuz I swore that was her untill I saw the credits...

    My fiancee dragged me off to this POS movie. I stand firmly by my previous post about Vin Diesel..this guy cannot act and it seems like he is reading cue cards.

    There are alot of good action sequences in this flick ..but that is it..the story was lame, mindless and cliched and this guy has to be one of the worst actors out there. The only reason this guy is a star right now is his body..nothing more..nothing less

    I had said before that "Master of Disguise" was a horrible movie..I absolutely hated that movie as well..but if I it came down to being stuck on a world where these were the only two movies I would see the Dana Carvey flick as opposed to putting anymore money in this no talent hack's bank account

    I saw this flick this weekend, and I loved it - it was exactly what I was expecting - a great action flick that was a lot of fun to watch.

    And I'd strongly disagree with optimuslives' assessment that Diesel can't act. He can - just check out Pitch Black or Iron Giant. Granted, he's not the best actor in the world, but he's not terrible either.

    And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
    We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.
    Spiral out. Keep going"
