xXx: The Return of Xander Cage (2017)

Wasted opportunity to revive this “dirty james bond” series.

It froze in time. They tried something that could maybe work 15 years ago but for today’s standards it’s way too low. Awful screenplay that could be easily written by a 8 years old kid doesn’t really help too. 100 times seen cliches with fast video editing and absolutely useless cgi sequences. You have Tony Jaa and Donnie Yan, why would you ever need to use bloody CGI.

It’s a shame when you manage to have stars like Tony Jaa and Donnie Yan but you can’t unleash your imagination. As a result of that there are truly no epic fight scenes. Just ordinary stuff like crappy dialogues and world where everyboy can withstand direct impact from RPG or hit by car at full speed.

Nevertheless it had a few cool moments (and plenty of the cringe, not cool at all moments)if you are looking for some action movie to pass few hours, you found one.
