If there’s one Vin Diesel franchise I feel remiss in not partaking it’s his Xander Cage series. Thankfully there’s still time for me, and maybe a few others of you, to catch up before the latest, XXX: RETURN OF XANDER CAGE hits theaters. Now, more than ever, we need to a little kick-ass movie in our lives. Why not start out the year to this one?

Mainly I thrilled to bits to see such a bad-ass, internationally diverse cast  – like Donnie Yen, Tony Jaa and Deepika Padukone – kicking LOTS of butt. Take a look.

Here’s the official synopsis:

The third explosive chapter of the blockbuster franchise that redefined the spy thriller finds extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) coming out of self-imposed exile and 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. Recruiting an all-new group of thrill-seeking cohorts, Xander finds himself enmeshed in a deadly conspiracy that points to collusion at the highest levels of world governments. Packed with the series’ signature deadpan wit and bad-ass attitude, “xXx: RETURN OF XANDER CAGE” will raise the bar on extreme action with some of the most mind-blowing stunts to ever be caught on film.

xXx: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE opens on January 20, 2017.
