If you’re not familiar with xXx and you like cheesy, action filled, ridiculous movies then what are you waiting for,  go watch the first one as soon as possible.  The premise is simple, an extreme athlete (Vin Diesel) is recruited by the government to be a spy.  Of course he doesn’t follow the rules and sheer absurdity follows.  That’s it, doesn’t get more complicated or deeper than that.

The 2002 xXx spawned a sequel, xXx: State of the Union. Unfortunately, Vin Diesel declined to return as Xander Cage and Ice Cube stepped in to fill the role of extreme spy playing the role of Darius Stone.  That movie didn’t do as well as the first and thus ended the saga of xXx.

That is, until Vin Diesel decided he was game to return for another one and who can blame him, the movies are nothing but fun.  So now we have xXx: The Return of Xander Cage and it looks as gloriously over the top as the first one.  If you need something to compare it to, think The Fast & the Furious level of insanity and insert it into the spy world.

xXx: Return of Xander Cage hits theaters on January 20, 2017.
