XXX

Went and saw me some XXX action last night. Hoo-wee! It was sweet! Straight-up, brainless, pointless action fun! with hoochies & hotties, russkies and yanks, guns & goons, cars & bikes, and to top it all off, snowboards, snowmobiles and an avalanche! Woot!

So yeah, I liked it. It had humorously bad dialogue, excellent, virtually non-stop action sequences, an appropriately inconceivable spy-genre romace, and the best part? Vin Diesel. Whom I should dislike, as Leah gushes “he’s so hot” whenever she sees him. But no, he totally makes the movie, in the same way he made Pitch Black, and the way he made The Fast & the Furious watchable (which not coincidentally, was also by Rob Cohen).

So if you want an excellent, mindless action flick, go see ‘XXX’. It’s far better than any other action flick I’ve seen in a while, and will most likely make the next bond (for which I saw a preview also) movie seem a little …. tame.

  1. I enjoyed it as well. I’d be curious to get a babe rating for a few people on the female lead. Vin seemed to be a few leagues too high for her.

    Some of that dialogue pushed the boundaries of how bad it can be and still fun. Here are a couple of examples, that won’t ruin the movie.

    Russian “babe”: Remember when I said I wouldn’t kiss you again? I lied.

    Ruskie #1: How’s it going?
    Ruskie #2: Life is shit.
    Ruskie #1: Well, what are ya gonna do?

    Speaking of great dialogue. I’m getting all excited about renting Donnie Darko again this weekend. Here is my favourite exchange (which I won’t get exactly right):

    Big sister: Lick an ass!
    Brother: Suck a fuck!
    Big Sister: And how exactly do I do that?
    Little sister: What’s a fuck?
    (Parents laugh)

    – Could the bad guy in XXX look any more like Kevin Spacey?

    – I think Vin Deisel could be the only guy in the world to make a gigantic fluffy coat look good. I wonder if this will be a trend this winter?

  5. Asia Argento is hot hot hot. In my humble opinion anyway. Rent New Rose Hotel, (based on a William Gibson short story), and then dare to disagree with me. Unless of course you are fundamentally opposed to sultry italian brunettes, in which case I can’t even talk to you.

    I haven’t seen XXX, and likely won’t, but when I heard Asia ws in it, I couldn’t believe Vin was stealing all the media attention.
