If your idea of fun is snowboarding down a mountain in front of an avalanche, jumping motorcycles over barns, and harpooning a submarine then parasailing behind it,you just might appreciate the action packed movie XXX. No, it’s not an adult film. This thriller begins with Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) a rugged, tattooed star of extreme sports stealing a corvette and running it off a bridge. NSA agent Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson) finds Cage and offers him a deal. Gibbons will have the grand theft auto charges dropped if Cage agrees to work for him as an undercover agent. (Right – and I’ll be a brain surgeon.) Anyway, before Cage is allowed to go on the main mission, he has to complete several trial runs to prove he’s bad enough, tough enough and smart enough to work for the NSA. After Cage passes the test missions, Gibbons sends him to Czechoslovakia to stop a terrorists group called Anarchy 99 from unleashing a deadly virus code-named Silent Night. I think the only deadly things in Czechoslovakia are the hairy women. After infiltrating the terrorist organization he shoots, drives, flies and jumps his way into saving the world. If character development, believable acting, and a semi-convincing plot are even remotely important, you will probably hate this movie. You might enjoy a few witty one-liners and predictable action scenes. Unfortunately for me, the music and sound effects were so loud I left the theater deaf and blind. I reluctantly give this action film a C rating.

This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
