When I heard just some of the names in the cast was one of the highest paid Bollywood actresses Deepika Padukone and Hong Kong martial arts actor Donnie Yen (from the movie Ip Man), it made this installment of the xXx movie franchise truly unique. It also sticks out as a movie with a diverse balanced cast that each brings something different to the movie.

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

Vin Diesel definitely overshadowed his interesting co-stars but they did bring a depth to the characters. This one will satisfy the fans of the first two movies, filled with the series’ Vin Diesel deadpan wit and bad-ass attitude, this installment raises the bar on extreme action and stunts, it even has Vin Diesel skateboarding vertically on the side of a bus which is just one of mind-blowing stunts.
