XXX: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE
Vin Diesel is back from the dead as adrenalin junkie Xander Cage in XXX:The Return of Xander Cage!
“X takes care of it’s own”
Augustus Gibbons (Samuel Jackson) is back at it again recruiting extreme athletes to work in his covert special forces team, XXX. While having lunch with soccer star Neymar, a satellite crashed into the restaurant supposedly killing them both.
Jane Marke (Toni Collette), head of the CIA, briefs her team that they are dealing with “Pandora’s box”, a device that locates satellite orbiting the earth and crashes them to earth to a precise location like a missile. The meeting is disrupted by a team of extreme athlete’s (Donnie Yen, Deepika Padukone and Tony Ja) that take the box. Marke has to find someone that can walk through a hurricane and can get the box back and avenge Gibbons’ death.
We find Xander Cage (Diesel) laying low in the Dominican Republic stealing electronics for the local bar to get satellite feeds for the locals to watch soccer. Cage is XXX, so his escape is breath taking, from down hill skiing through the jungle to break neck skateboarding down the crowded highways. Marke tries to set him up, only to have Cage laugh at the attempt. She tell him Gibbons is dead and the mission is to get Pandora’s box back.
