Movie Review – XXX State of the union

When a secret NSA base is taken out, Augustas Gibbons can only turn to one man to find out who is behind the attack, Darius Stone. After escaping prison, Stone tracks down who is responsible and finds the clues pointing to someone in the Whitehouse.

The first XXX was innovative, clever and enjoyable, partly because of Vin Diesel and partly because it was action packed and fun. This XXX is none of that. Ice Cube as Darius Stone is permanently scowling and has none of the charisma that the Vin possessed. Its not really his fault though as the material he has to work with is poor at best. Lines that would make the cheesiest actor blush and scenarios that are just plain silly make this perhaps one of the worst movies I have ever managed to sit though.

Its not just the script, the special effects appear to have been bought on the cheap as several “stunts” were as realistic as Jordans boobs. At every turn, the movie managed to amazing and surprise me, but never in a good way. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, it does. Logic appeared to fly out of the window as soon as the title credits appeared.

I wanted to watch and enjoy this movie because I loved the first one. I liked Vin Diesel and I loved Sam the Man, but in State of the Union, Sam the Man has drank the Kool-Aid and bought into this poor movie, which is a huge shame. At the end of the movie, my face hurt from cringing so much. I am not a person who cringes, after all Amazon Women on The Moon is one of my favourite movies but this was a painful movie to endure.
