    Just watched it and that it was fantastic, loadz of action a bit tongue in cheek but still very impressive, very funny one liners as well, one of the best films i had pleasure of watching this year

    another great movie for vin diesel, he's doing pretty well for himself lately!

    this is sort of like true lies in that it's taking the piss out of the bond films a bit but it's great!

    love the bit when he gets that car all souped up and they give him an instruction book with all the gadgets - in fact was that the same car he had in the fast and the furious?

    the female interest looks like she's dirty (hasn't she done some porno's) but vin steals the show again.

    wonder how long til they make xxx 2 - mr diesel said he wanted a trilogy and i'd have thought they could do that easier from these than pitch black, but on the other hand half the beauty of this is that he's a fish out of water. saying that austin powers made it to no. 3 - suppose it depends how popular this is.

    one thing that is strange is that there aren't many reviews on imdb yet - it hit general release yesterday.

    i'm just looking forward to getting this on dvd as it will be mint with all the extras on there.

    8/10 (probably higher if I understood more of the one liners, audio's a bit crap on the version i saw)

    I'll be honest I was ready to turn it off about 30 minutes in cos it was so shite, ok action packed, but so corny and just regurgatating the stuff that Arnie and Sly did back in the 80's, but as it approached half time I kinda got into it and then enjoyed the rest of the movie. As long as you suspend your disbelief for 90 + minutes then it's a rip roaring roller coaster of a ride and well worth a watch.

    8/10

    I thought it was a brilliant film, i came out and most the audiance were going "...but james bond could do it better!" sod that i prefer the whole xxx thing to james bond... at least vin diesel puts a little bit of effort into it... as for the plot it was brilliant - i dont think i've ever seen such an action packed film!!

    I must agree with 4me2 - 9/10!!

    XXX is like a poor mans Bond movie with even WORSE one liners....
    The submarine was like a thunderbirds toy..... I (and most of the audience) pissed myself laffing at the cheesiness of it all.

    gotta be a 5/10


    Damn good soundtrack album tho.........
