Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Explosions abound, along with expository dialogue and a ham-tastic triad of performances from Sam Jackson, Willem Dafoe, and Peter Strauss."
‑ Peter L'Official, Village Voice
"You'd need a crane to suspend your disbelief."
‑ Scott Von Doviak, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com
"In light of the cinematic abomination that is "XXX: State Of The Union," Vin Diesel made the right choice by refusing to do another "xXx" movie unless Rob Cohen continued to direct the franchise."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"Well, they sure blowed 'em up good in XXX: State of the Union. And they pimped many rides. XXX is a car nut's fantasy."
‑ Stefan Ulstein, Christianity Today
"There's not a single scene in this film that doesn't provide at least one unintentional guffaw."
‑ David Cornelius, eFilmCritic.com
"This is that rare B movie that's rooted in gut-level stirrings of power and retaliation."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"So devoid of craft, it looks as though it were filmed by robots."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"XXXcruciating!"
‑ Kam Williams, Princeton Town Topics
"full review in Greek"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"Delivers the no-thinking-required, over-the-top goods, with some surprising digs at the original film providing the icing on this tasty bit of cinematic junk food."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"So primitive, it must have been written in lizard blood on animal skin."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"A crisp adventure that grows increasingly audacious (the story climaxes with a huge battle waged in the Capitol) if only lightly enjoyable."
‑ Tom Keogh, Seattle Times
"Youngsters and action junkies won't mind the film's ridiculous gadgets, secret tunnels and hairsbreadth escapes, but everyone else will have to check credibility at the door."
‑ Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International
"A big, dumb action film that exceeds low expectations."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"The only similarity that Cube and Diesel share is that they both appear to have ditched their birth names and pulled their new ones out of a hat."
‑ Uri Lessing, eFilmCritic.com
