    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    It's hard to hate a movie, even one this droolingly crass, that knows how to laugh at itself. show more

    In terms of adrenaline, XXX is one of the most satisfying entries this summer. show more

    All you get here for paid admission is a long and terrific avalanche scene -- state of the art, no question. Then it's over and ready to melt away, much like memories of this movie. show more

    Wall Street Journal

    To top it all off, no matter where you sit in the theater, no matter how far you arch back in your seat, there's no escaping the sensation that all the action on the screen is taking place about three feet from your face. I loved it. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Less a movie than a collection of pretty cool action set-pieces, linked together with some seriously awful acting and dialogue that even Dr. Evil couldn't deliver with a straight face. show more

    As junky as the movie is, you've gotta love its immersion in the preposterous and its naive hope that street credibility and attitude, along with a need for speed, are all that's really necessary in this big, bad world. show more

    As Diesel says, ''I like something fast enough to do something stupid in.'' Mission accomplished. show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    In Hollywood, and perhaps beyond, there's nothing more predictable than a rebel with a cause. XXX pretends otherwise, but isn't really fooling anyone -- ultimately, this is a movie as generic as its title. show more

    Suit #3: But what will we call the sequel? Suit #1: "XXXX"? Suit #2: Brilliant! show more
