Consensus: xXx: Return of Xander Cage should satisfy fans of the first two installments, but its preponderance of set pieces can't quite make up for a tired storyline that fails to take the franchise -- or action fans -- anywhere new.

Chicago Reader

This is only slightly less dumb and nonsensical than the previous films, but it teems with thrilling action sequences and rollicking stunt work from the middle-aged Diesel and martial artist Donnie Yen.

The plot, with its multiple double-crosses and 'this group must somehow form a you-know-what' plot beats, could have been written on the back of a cocktail napkin.

The warmth you feel traveling down your spine as you watch is nothing to worry about. It's just brain melt, and you won't need the organ to survive a screening of the film.

Even in the weak signal that is the January movie season, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage hardly registers.

Toward the end, the action becomes repetitive and tiresome, but there are pleasures to be had. Diesel is a terrific action star, in that he can give a movie a lift just by being there. Collette embraces the cold-blooded extremes of her role.

If it isn't a crime to chop up the beautiful fight choreography of Donnie Yen into unintelligible ribbons, well, it ought to be.

If it doesn't slap a big silly smile on your face, you may want to check your pulse.

A rollicking shot of adrenaline that's every bit as ludicrous as the word soup posing as its title.

A Sistine Chapel of transcendent stupidity.
