Completely and utterly forgettable. That is the best way I can describe XXX: Return Of Xander Cage (2017).

I watched this movie about two weeks ago and literally cannot remember one scene that stuck out to me in a positive way. The only aspects I remember from this money-grab are its poorly directed action sequences and horrendously simplified T-for-teen action plot.

Now I know, the XXX franchise is not one designed for highbrow understanding. It’s supposed to be simple. It’s supposed to be mind-numbing. However, the one thing an action movie can’t be is BORING. XXX: Return Of Xander Cage is exactly that.

Not being a major fan of the first two installments in the franchise, this third chapter just saps Xander Cage for his un-charismatic nostalgia and pushes the audience on a rocky roller coaster ride with a valley of uninteresting exploding moments.
