It was about an hour into Triple X when I suddenly realized I had seen this movie. Flash back 15 years. Me and my high school friends were happily singing the Safety Dance from the open windows of our Plymouth Voyager on the way back from the video store with a brand new movie. This movie combined two different trends together and starred a brand new hot action hero playing off of his original talents in the sports arena. That movie was Kurt Thomas in his first and last acting job. XXX is the Gymkata of the new millennium.

It is always dangerous to build a movie on current-day trends. Look at Die Another Day is ten times the movie that XXX is. To even compare the two is insulting.

The DVD for XXX isn't bad, probably as good as it should be for a movie that isn't all that either. It has a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack and a 1.85 to 1 16x9 enhanced picture. There is a commentary track, but I didn't have much of an urge to hear what they have to say.

I get beat up a lot for not liking "fun" movies, but what people don't seem to realize is that there are good fun movies and bad ones. This is a bad one. Go watch Desperado, Terminator, or any of the James Bond movies for good fun movies. Don't like a movie just because it has an explosion in it.
