TRIPLE XXX - RETURN OF XANDER CAGE (ACTION)


 
 Triple XXX, Return of Xander Cage is a movie, which should in theory, appeal to my fanboydom. I love action sports such as skating, etc, but the latest in the Triple XXX franchise falls off the skateboard into a pit of crud mud.

  However, there are a number of positives, including a diverse cast. It is great to see Donnie Yen and Tony Jaa receive more shine from Hollywood. Donnie Yen is probably the stand out actor in the movie, and I hope to see further roles lined up for him. He is a good actor and not just an action star. Tony Jaa and Deepika Padukone are the next strongest actors in the Return of Xander Cage. 

Other positives are the tricks and stunts, but that is where Triple XXX ends. Despite being a Vin Diesel fan, Triple XXX should be renamed Triple Wack. The acting outside of those already mentioned is diabolical. God awful doesn't come close to describing how bad lines are delivered, and it isn't even 'so bad it's good'. From the first act you are sat thinking 'geez' and 'man'. I didn't want to rage on the film, as I like Vin Diesel, and respect his work with The Fast and Furious and the Riddick movies. I'm just going to say the Return of Xander Cage was an off day for Vin. He will be back on form, he knows how to make a good action movie.

I would recommend waiting for the Return of Xander Cage to be released on Netflix or DVD, its not worth the movie theatre admission price, unless you are a film nerd like me that has to watch a new release, regardless of obvious questionable quality.  

4/10.
