Did You Know?

Trivia:
When Xander is climbing the rocks and infiltrating the castle, he is wearing a special jacket. It's actually a textile motorcycle jacket, produced by Joe Rocket, and its called the "Phoenix" series. It uses padding and ballistic nylon weaving to reduce the impact and abrasion damage caused in a motorcycle crash.

Goofs:
Errors in geography: Ahab is supposed to cruise the world's oceans after passing through Prague; there are dams and weirs (at least one right in the middle of Prague) which would prevent it.

Quotes:
[first lines]
Henchman: [in Czech] He stole the chip, he's inside.
Yorgi: I see him.
Yorgi: Kirill! Time to work.



User Review

James Bond meets Rocky Balboa with **** stunts

Rating: 6/10

For plot, xXx rates a 1.

For acting, a 0.

For action, a 10.

This movie is unbelievably stupid, but somehow people (including me) like it. Just watch it, take it for what it is, and go with the flow. Vin Diesel plays an "extreme protester" recruited by "The Man" to accomplish some vague mission. Don't get too concerned about the mission, or anything else for that matter. Anything resembling a plot is present only to justify the explosion or parachute jump or whatever impossible physical challenge the stunt-masters have come up with. Just be happy you rented this instead of paid to see it in a theater. Invite your friends over, have a few beers, and enjoy!!!
