Synopsis by Karl Williams

The director (Rob Cohen) and star (Vin Diesel) of the previous summer's hit The Fast and the Furious (2001) are reunited for this spy thriller billed as a next-generation James Bond adventure. Diesel stars as Xander Cage, a nihilist extreme sports enthusiast nicknamed "Triple X" because of a large tattoo covering his back and neck. Cage's illegal stunts and poor attitude (he's given to spouting dialogue such as, "Have you ever been punched in the face for talking too much?") land him in jail, where he's recruited/blackmailed into government service by the National Security Agency's Augustus Gibbons, who likes Cage for his skills and expendability. The new secret agent is assigned to infiltrate a Russian crime ring called Anarchy 99, whose access to biochemical weaponry is making the United States extremely nervous. With the help of some high-tech gadgets from weapons master Toby Lee Shavers (Michael Roof), Cage is able to make his way into Anarchy 99, where he targets the group's leader Yorgi (Marton Csokas) and falls for the organization's second-in-command, Yelena (Asia Argento). XXX (2002) is the first in a hoped-for franchise of sequels for the film's producer, Revolution Studios.

(before entering Yorgi's club)
Milan Sova: Everyone in this club's got two things in common; they're filthy rich and they're criminals.
Xander Cage: I'll fit in perfect, except for the filthy rich part.
  • The first film in which Vin Diesel plays the lead role.
  • The motorcycle that Xander is riding after the Corvette base jump is a 1999 MV Agusta Serie ORO (Gold Series). It's one of only 300 produced worldwide. Its a 750cc, in-line 4-cylinder engine which produces 125 hp and a top speed +175 mph.
  • The NSA set was built in Prague. It contains 120 monitors.
  • Stunt player Harry O'Connor was killed when he hit a pillar of the Palacky Bridge in Prague, para-sailing during one of the actions scenes. The accident occured while filming the second take of the stunt; O'Connor's first attempt was completed without incident and can be seen in the completed film.
  • In one scene, two cops who are heard speaking in Czech are saying, quite clearly, something along the lines of "How's it going?" - "Oh, it's cold as s**t." - "Yeah, f**king weather." The dialogue is not subtitled.
