Short plot summary

Vin Diesel (Xander Cage - he has XXX tattooed on his neck) plays a brilliant extreme sports master with an attitude, who is approached by the NSA to work for them as a secret agent (or we'll put you in jail 'big tatty boy').

What our panel of critics thought

"Vin Diesel once again reprises his big chested good-baddy image, this time a secret agent with attitude and tattoos all over and a voice so low it could graze your knees."

"I have always wanted to fire a tranquilizer dart since Daktari was on television in the 1970's. But in this movie, the lion in question is our Vin. Thank goodness he has all that muscle or they could have broken something."

"The diner scene reminded me of a dream I once had involving prunes, cream and a small sprout, would you like me to continue? It wasn't pretty."

"A Hitchcockian masterpiece but without the big gut."

"Prague is one of my most favorite cities in the world. An architectural triumph enhanced by explodey bullets."

"The world is a much safer place with people like Xander Cage on our screens. Bravisimo quinticento OOeee!"

"And according to the DVD commentary Vin Diesel doesn't actually have any tattoos at all..."

Please tell me the ending or whole plot if necessary

Xander Cage infiltrates the baddies in Prague who are keen to set off a weapon of mass destruction. But do not fear, folks, our Xander either blows up, shoots or punches to death anyone who stands in his way, whilst doing 'the superman' on his motorcycle.

Quotable quotes (real)
"I live for this shit."
"Video Games are our education."
"The things I am going to do for my country."
Other comments

A generously funded outing with some very good special effects.

Being set in Prague is a bonus, and with Samuel Jackson alongside Vin Diesel, the cast is impressive for its type. Has all of the limitations of its genre plus a big furry necked jacket which we thought Starsky had burned in the 1970's.

Don't miss anything important to watch this movie, but if its on it'll pass the time well enough.
