Vin Diesel made a name for himself by appearing in the Fast and the Furious franchise. However, keeping his adventurous persona alive, he appeared in XXX (2002) as Xander Cage, a thrill seeking enthusiast, who becomes a spy for the National Security Agency (NSA). After a hiatus of 15 years, Vin Diesel reprises his role as Xander Cage in the sequel, XXX: Return of Xander Cage.

The movie shows XXX perform his tricks with the motorcycle and the skateboard where he even skis through a rainforest. XXX: Return on Xander Cage is a sort of movie that has two kinds of audiences. One, those who cheer on every move that Xander make, even if it is lighting up a cigarette. Second are those who want to sleep throughout the movie. Perhaps the hype for XXX: Return of Xander Cage across social media was because of Deepika Padukone playing the role of Serena Unger. What part she plays in the world of espionage is for you to find out.

However, even with often-time goofy stunts and the essence of predictability evident in some stunt scenes which Xander performs, you cannot get a better action-adventure movie like this. Perhaps it is the aura, appeal, and persona of Vin Diesel that he can create any stunt look top-class, which would receive enormous applause from Vin Diesel fans.

If you want to see a movie showing stunts that are explainable and logical, then do not watch this movie. However, if you want to see Diesel and Padukone on the same screen and stunts that keep you at the edge of the chair then XXX: Return of Xander Cage is a must watch.
