No, this isn’t porn–it’s the new Vin Diesel vehicle called xXx. In it, Diesel plays an extreme athlete and criminal turned spy, ala La Femme Nikita. Some of its action sequences are pretty breathtaking, while others are downright hard-to-believe (i.e. a lot of bullshit moments). It’s one of those films where the stunts are so over the top that you giggle a little at their lack of realism.

The bottom line, if you like good raw action sequences and are not looking for Shakespearian soliloquies this film should fill your needs. This film was not as good as last summer’s Fast and the Furious, in which Diesel also starred. If you like street racing culture you should go out and rent The Fast and the Furious–not a bad film.
