Synopsis

Although it once indicated pornographic content, the title refers to the main character and his love of extreme sports. The appropriately named Vin Diesel stars in this high octane James Bond-style adventure as Xander Cage, whose extreme sports stunts, like parachuting off of bridges, are videotaped for Internet exposure. But daredevil Xander also sees himself as a political Robin Hood, protesting unpopular legislation by stealing a state senator’s sports car and driving it off a bridge. His criminal daring earns the attention of NSA agent Gibbons, played by Samuel L. Jackson, who proposes to enlist the law-breaker as an expendable agent for risky assignments in an “It Takes a Thief” type mode. Marton Csokus plays a former Soviet agent named Yorgi who’s now running a crime syndicate in Prague called Anarchy 99, who plans to unleash biological terror on the world. Gibbons sends Triple X, named for the three Xes tattoo on his neck, to find out how. But Yorgi’s assistant Yelena, played by Asia Argento, also challenges Xander. Teens and young adults will especially enjoy the adrenaline charged stunts as Xander races against the clock to save the world.

Dove Review

Like the Bond films, TRIPLE X is filled with chases, explosions and gadgets, including a souped-up 1967 GTO, although most of the violence is not graphic or gory. A few scenes have scantily clad women and strongly suggest sexual encounters, but the emphasis is on action. However, the dialogue is frequently punctuated with crude and obscene vocabulary, which crosses TRIPLE X off the must-see list.
