OMG, XXX was SO f'n bad I wanted to gouge my eyes out during the movie!

I know I am behind the times on this movie since I just finally saw it on DVD for the first time, but I still need to chime in and say: “Vin Deisel GO AWAY! You are a crappy actor and you sound like Lou Ferigno when you speak”

This guy should just go make some soft core porn for the ladies and then go away because this guy has ZERO acting ability.

I would list all the stuff that made this movie so terrible but it would take up half a page and would give away the whole story because the whole movie sucked in every concievable way. There were no cool gadgets, no hot chicks, no cool plot twists, and no decent leading actors named Vin.

Besides his looks, which as a straight male I don’t see the appeal in, what the hell does the world see in this jagoff? He is such a bad actor in every roll he has been in except MAYBE Saving Private Ryan. He was bad in Pitch Black but they are making a couple sequals to that I heard.

Please tell me there won’t be another XXX. Please lord. It was far too extreme for me. When he “recognized” the Vandals lyrics I wanted to slit my own wrists.

Maybe I just am not extreme enough for this flick. I need to go drink a 12er of MD (thats Mountain Dew for you un-extreme folks out there).

I have not seen the movie. I would be in favor of a sequel if, and only if, they call it XXXI.

Wouldn’t it be easier to press the stop button on your DVD remote than to gouge out your eyes?

Why in God’s name did you rent it in the first place? I could tell that it was crap-tacular from the promos.

But Vin Deisel is HOT! (I just rented it last night, and thought it was pretty dumb.) But he’s HOT!

Pretty blah movie. I agree on Vin Diesel being a pretty average actor - I can’t see the appeal. The Fast and the Furious is also a movie that is unfeasibly popular.

I did like Pitch Black, though, but not for him. I liked the female heroine, played by Radha Mitchell, she was excellent. But she ain’t in the sequels.

But then, when has Hollywood ever done anything just for me?

[snarky response]
Why did you watch it? Were you locked in a small room and strapped to a chair, unable to get up, look away or change the channel?

'cos that’s why I watched it.

It was dumb, poorly acted and, well, dumb. However, it distracted me for 90 minutes from the pain of being wedged into an economy-class seat for 11 hours, which was all I really wanted.

I’ll say two things in its favor:

  1. It was better than Master of Disguise, one of the movies offered on the return flight.

  2. I hadn’t already seen it, unlike The Rock, one of the other movies offered on the return flight.

Yeah, XXX sucked big fat donkey ding-ding. I liked Pitch Black, though, and I thought Diesel was ok in it.

Vin Diesel actually gives a calmer, funnier, non-exploding performance in Boiler Room, which was to the nineties as Wall Street was to the eighties.

Plus, it’s a really hard movie to Google.

I can understand the Fast and the Furious being popular only for the cars. Without those that movie would have flopped on its ass. This pathetic movie was like Vin trying to be Arnold with his dumb ass one liners

“The things I’ll do for my country”
“I live for this shit”
“<instert any number of snide remarks to people about to kill him>”
The totally unbelievable scene when he wakes up in the diner and “notices” all the things that are wrong with it that clues him into it being fake.

This movie was bad on so many levels it hurts to think about it.

Next time I want a quick action packed, one liner packed, Rae Wong Dong packed flick I will rent Commando. At least Arnold was believable in his role.

All I know is that the scene where he rides a motorcycle around the Generic Drug Lord Camp while literally everything explodes around, on top of, and under him, was one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.

The stretches where he wasn’t doing spectacularly stupid stunts were a shame, though, though not quite as bad as all the dialogue and “intrigue” they force on perfectly innocent Bond films.

yep…i didn’t even have the urge to see the crap…but last night at a friends house they put it in and i laughed aloud at the opening dialouge…pure cheese…i apologized and it was ok…about that time my kind bud(hydro) arrived and we forgot about the movie and played vice city…

And yet, when I tell all this to ParticleWife, I am somehow wrong!

She really digs ol’ Vin for some reason.

My favorite thing in the movie is a solar-powered submarine.

Let me repeat that, a solar-powered submarine…
But Rammstein is on the soundtrack so thats worth at least one star.

Fun to try, though. I live for a, um, hard challenge.

Ok, I saw XXX staring Vin Diesel tonight. It was your usual “action-crap” type movie. The term “action-crap” is a phrase we use in our house, but “basically” it means, stuff gets blown up real good; you get the picture.

Well, now on to the LIFE LESSONS…

  1. DON’T SMOKE
    I’m serious, this is a prevalent message in the flick. So, guys, it’s bad for you (and me) so please, don’t smoke, mmkay? Cuz if you light up, then Vin Diesel is going to shove a heat seeking missle right up your …

  2. EXERCISE
    Do your pushups! Ok, I’m running further now than I ever have before, and I’m starting to do some basic weights. And guys, we all want to have Vin Diesel’s body, so let’s get to it.

  3. TRAVEL
    Can someone send me to Prague? Please? Vin Diesel likes the sights (and I love looking at European scenery in films) so let’s all go!

  4. VIDEO GAMES
    Vin Diesel sez, video games are good entertainment. He has a personal favourite with the Play Station 2 (and all Sony products).

  5. SNOWBOARDING
    Extreme, dude! Oh, and combine this with parachuting. You never know when you’ll have to do it.

(Somewhere around here I’m supposed to get laid by some hot, sexy and slim chick, but she hasn’t shown up yet at my European castle…)

  1. TATTOOS AND SHAVED HEADS
    I’ll never get a tattoo, but I’m seriously thinking of getting my own clippers so I can cut my own hair. But shaving it? Maybe in the summer…

  2. SKATEBOARDING
    This is a critical lifeskill for evading sharpshooters. Tony Hawk shows up for a brief demonstration. Learn it!!!

  3. GTO
    Vin Diesel loves this machine. Shouldn’t all Americans?

  4. MOTORCYCLES
    Being capable of riding a motorcycle is essential for all special-agent-wannabes.

  5. FINDING THE PROPER BALANCE BETWEEN X-TREME, DUUUUDE AND RESPECTFUL FREEDOM
    Vin-baby manages to find the proper median of extreme stunts and actually respecting basic laws and rights. Isn’t that what going to the movies is all about???
    I give this movie a thumbs up.

He was good in “The Iron Giant”. :smiley:

But as a woman, I have to say: “Eeeewwwww!” and to the OP: You took the words right from my mouth. A thoroughly horrendous waste of celluloid.

Oh, and no porn of any kind, please. <shudder> I don’t htink I’ve seen worse kissing in a movie in my life. Let me “Eeewwww” some more…

I actually liked it!

What?

I did!

Seriously.

It was fun, in a campy kind of way. You guys are just taking it seriously.

I was in a store the other day and the cashier asked me if I wanted to pre-order XXX. I said no, because I didn’t like Vin Diesel. She asked me why and I told her, “He sucks”. She asked me if I’d ever seen any of his movies and I said, “Obviously”. She apparently was a big fan as her mood turned rather icy. One of her cow-orkers who was standing behind her got a good laugh though.
