Extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage comes out of self-imposed exile, thought to be long dead, and is set on a collision course with deadly alpha warrior Xiang and his team in a race to recover a sinister and seemingly unstoppable weapon known as Pandora's Box.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Thriller - As with the other films in the series, this is an over-the-top escapist action film aimed primarily at young males, and with the return of original star Vin Diesel, the style and vibe is closer to recent The Fast and the Furious sequels than the first two xXx films. Fans of the other returning series stars, Samuel L. Jackson and Ice Cube, may be disappointed by their limited screen time. Language, violence, and some brief sexual content make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average It's a throw-away piece of cinematic fast food. It falls within the parameters of a creatively bankrupt genre that favors excess over story in an overt courting of the overseas audience. The movie is mind-numbing but not sleep-inducing. It's too loud and bombastic for that.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average The last forty minutes of the movie do come together in a pretty diverting way. There's a bit of "A-Team” zaniness thrown in as well, and this makes the intercut parallel action sequences of the climax...work pretty well.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Good The action builds to such a head that even the serious stakes of the film's motivation give way to pleasant vibes.
