Guilty Pleasure of the highest order (by dbborroughs)
Sue me I loved this movie.In the opening moments I went "oh this is one of those leave your brain at home movies" so I politely turned my mind off and enjoyed a hour and a half or so of mindless action. What great fun this was.The plot has Ice Cube, who is quite good, being recruited as the new XXX to help stop a villainous plot that begins with an attack on Samuel L Jackson's base and leads to a possible coup by a military group. The movie begins on a high note and just runs all the way to the end barely pausing long enough to take a breath.This is great popcorn film making <more>
thats never really believable but which hooks you and drags you along.I loved this movie. Its so mindless and entertaining and doesn't try to be anything beyond that. Its great.I don't know if its because the movie just hits me right or because earlier in the day I suffered through the wildly uneven new Star Wars, but there is something about this film thats wonderful.I have no idea why so many people dislike this film, certainly its no worse than the first XXX film, which was a guilty pleasure itself. Perhaps people can't buy Ice Cube as an action hero. What ever the reason this film is sorely under rated.Turn off your mind and don't think about anything, just let the movie tell its story and you'll have a good time.I know I'm looking forward to future viewings of this new addition to my guilty pleasure list.
I really do not understand why some people criticize this movie. They obviously do not appreciate good action when they see it. I thought it was great! It contained all the suspense I needed. And at the same time it was good entertainment. If you don't like Action movies then don't watch them. Ice Cube was great!! So was Samuel Jackson and the rest of the cast. May I suggest a boring action movie.. Matrix. The cars were fantastic. I agree that nothing will ever compare with the first XXX but that was a different movie. I thought he story line was excellent. It reminded me of Tom <more>
Clancys books. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes good action, Ice Cube and Samuel Jackson.
XXX Sate of the Union excellent action flick (by beno0414)
First off I am a big fan of XXX. I loved the feel of the first one and I thought it was a great concept. It is one of my favorite films. I am also a big fan of Vin Diesel's. I have enjoyed his work since I saw Boiler Room. Having been a huge fan of the first film and Diesel, I was quite disappointed to hear that he passed on future XXX projects for the Riddick Franchise. When I heard that the new concept for the XXX sequels was to introduce a new XXX with each installment I was intrigued. It was a different step for a new franchise to take. Then I heard that Ice Cube was going to be <more>
following in Vin's footsteps for the sequel. It was a very interesting cast choice. I have been a fan of Cube's since the NWA / Boyz in The Hood Days. I was curious to see what he would bring to the franchise. I saw the film last night and I absolutely loved it. It was the most fun I have had at the movies all year. It was loud, over the top, funny and exciting. Everything that made me love the first one so much. It has tied with the first XXX as one of my favorite action movies of all time. I thought Ice Cube was great in the role of Darius Stone/XXX. He was great in the actions scenes and he provided a lot of humor. Sam Jackson was also in top form reprising his role as Agustus Gibbons. I thought the actions pieces in the film were top notch. The Bullet Train Scene, the scene on the ship where Darius is toying with the soldiers in the tank and especially where Darius jumps the boat onto the bridge smashing the cop cars. I loved it.I am surprised by some of the negative comments towards this film. I don't know what film people thought they were walking into. The film is very similar to the original XXX in regards to it's tone. People on that post on this page need to lighten up. Not every film that comes out has to be the based in reality. I like films that push the limits of reality. I like to have fun at the movies. XXX State of the Union was so much fun that I would pay to see it again. Bring on XXX 3
The Tank Fight On The Aircraft Carrier Was Simply Awesome! (by BigHardcoreRed)
XXX: State Of The Union was a great action movie. I do not think it was as good as the first but still, very good. This movie was full of awesome action sequences. Some would say implausible but what action movie is realistic? I also kind of got the vibe that the producers of this movie were a bit mad at Vin Diesel but all that could be just part of the storyline, which I like. I guess the XXX will always be someone new, even more the opposite of James Bond.Augustus Gibbons Samuel L. Jackson seems to be the main recurring character. We learn a little bit about his past, his scarred face in <more>
particular. He chooses an old military acquaintance named Darius Stone Ice Cube as the new, badder and meaner XXX. This time, they have to stop an evil Secretary of Defense, Gen. George Octavius Deckert Willem Dafoe from having all those in the chain of command above him assassinated. As Stone says, "the cleanest revolution in history". I kept expecting The Green Goblin to emerge somewhere. I guess there is a similarity between his two characters.XXX boasts some of the greatest action scenes I have had the pleasure of seeing. The tank fight on the aircraft carrier was simply awesome. Sure, I understand this probably could not and will not ever come close to happening, but it is still fun to watch. No one in their right mind could argue that.I knew well ahead of time that many, many people would put this movie down, much of them without even seeing it. While I do think that it does not have the same rebellious feel as the first XXX, it was a great movie in it's own right. Highly recommended if you liked the first one. If you did not, then why are you bothering?
I saw this for an advanced screening just tonight . There is a lot of action, lots of explosions and fast car chases etc, however some of the actors they chose for minor roles weren't as good as they should be. One thing I will never understand is why Ice Cube continuously turned down sex for fried chicken and a shake..? Overall good movie and plot, and if you are in to action this is the kind of movie for you. There is no gruesome violence though, thats sort of a downer.... Ice cube isn't fat anymore, looks like he decided to bulk up for the movie. I'm waiting to see what the <more>
paper says, i saw some of the media reviewers sitting in the back row.
xxx: The Next Level --> You Shouldn't Miss This! (by jacynkang)
It was interesting and i was entertained through out watching it : I can say that its as good as the previous xxx, if not even better. Ice Cube portrayed the role with his genuine acting and the cars used in the film were simply 'a dream come true' for many. The producers of this film have chose a suitable replacement of Vin Diesel, and i must say that Ice Cube did deliver an excellent performance. I feel that people should watch this show in a positive light and not be too bias towards the lead actor. This is definitely a must watch. Thumbs up once more for this sequel of <more>
xxx."Wars come and go, but my soldiers are eternal"
Deserves much more credit then it has been getting (by bubba14)
I know that this movie may have disappointed many and I too was kind of cautious in the way i approached it but I was all in all quite satisfied, there is a lot of action and explosions and at times the plot may loose some people but I encourage everyone to give this movie a chance especially if you like action packed films. The only thing I could have seen better is a little more of a beginning to explain what is going on it got into the action a little to fast for me. I think that the writers took a tough course with the story line that they choose and it did show in the less then amazing <more>
unfolding plot. I think that the actors did what they could to save the movie and even though Willem Dafoe has the great look of an evil villain in this movie I think he was almost making the movie for a completely different audience then the rest of the cast I think he makes a great evil character but the role in this movie did not quite fit him. All others did very well in making this movie into what it was and they all seemed to be on the same page as to what they wanted the final project to look like.I give this movie a mark of about 80-84% sorry the stars shown is a little misleading mistake and it wouldn't fix it for me and encourage anyone who enjoys the 007 movies and the original XXX to give it a try it deserves more credit then it has been getting.
Unknown assassins penetrate a secret National Security Agency underground facility in Virginia, and kill 16 NSA agents. Agent Augustus Gibbons Samuel L. Jackson escapes, and must find out who broke security and why. Gibbons must recruit a new XXX agent to do his dirty work. Gibbons has just the man, a former Navy Seal and member of his old military unit. However, Darius Stone Ice Cube was put in a military prison for 20 years, because he disobeyed a direct order from General George Deckert Willem Dafoe , and he also broke the general's jaw. Just the man Gibbons needs to do the job. <more>
Gibbons gets Stone out of prison, and puts him to work. Stone discovers that Deckert, who is now the secretary of defense, is the mastermind of a conspiracy to stage a coup, and become President of the United States. Deckert has been training and placing his old military unit in the right places to stage his coup. Deckert wants the President killed and anybody above him in the line of secession. Darius Stone has other plans and is out to stop Deckert.This movie is an all around good action film. It has some good fight scenes and the special effects were good. The movie starts off with a good action scene, and continues through the end. Ice Cube adds a new dimension to the XXX character, and he actually does a good job as the new XXX. The storyline is a little hard to believe, but this is only an action movie and not real. I would recommend seeing it just for the action. You can just sit back and enjoy the action. Sony Pictures, Run time 1:40, Rated PG-13 8/10
Some reviewers are comparing this flick to James Bond, and they're right. From the opening to the final action scene and all through the film there are things that would fit and in some cases have been done in Bond flicks, and it's all for the good. Aside from the rap music, which I can take or leave, the music is a sort of JB/IMF combination and likewise goes down nicely. Where it's a bit deficient is in humor, the smart lines aren't played well, and sex. I mean in any decent JB film, you wouldn't get him passing over some of the ladies in this film, but Ice Cube does. <more>
Cube by the way is pretty good in his role. He's a charismatic actor, just like Defoe and Jackson. The sort who could read a phone book and make it interesting. And while I found Diesel acceptable in the first one, he got poorer in later films and had some deserved flops. Maybe he'll pick up and improve now that he's had to do something as out of character as Pacifier.
