    How bad does it get? How far past the basement can one elevator go? show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    At least this movie seems more aware of its trashiness than "National Treasure" was. It's therefore freer to have some off-the-cuff fun the way Steven Seagal's more tolerable vehicles once did. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    Critics are inclined to describe the action in films like "XXX" and Lee Tamahori's sequel, XXX: State of the Union, as "cartoon violence." I'll resist doing that out of respect for cartoons. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    A smooth blend of visual special effects, exceptional stunts, fluid photography, sharp design and a possible best-selling soundtrack. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Theater of the absurd, masquerading as an action thriller. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    There are really only two kinds of big-budget action movies: stupid, and good and stupid. Surprisingly, XXX: State of the Union is good and stupid, which makes it an immediate improvement over 2002's meatheaded "XXX." show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    Most of the movie is standard action fare, but the political commentary is interesting when it's allowed to surface. show more

    Peter Debruge Miami Herald

    Basically the first movie all over again, with plenty more of the bridge-jumping, rocket-launching action that audiences loved about the original. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    A big, loud, proudly brainless popcorn flick that blows up cars, trucks, tanks, boats, helicopters and even a train. show more
