Default xXx (Vin Diesel Flick)

I've seen this on sale many times, but I have not ever seen it? Is this a worth a blind buy? I know that I would be buying an action movie that many would consider a "guilty pleasure" or a "popcorn flick".

What do you guys who have seen it or who own it on blu?

Sometimes we hear of people who are “very” honest, “mostly” honest, or even “a little” honest.
Should we even use modifiers with the word honest? I don’t believe so. There are no degrees of honesty. Either we are honest or we aren't.

Are you sure.

Also, I would suggest renting a movie before buying it. That's what I do

Seen the film, have the film. Not great, but decent action, popcorn, mindless fun, guilty pleasure type of film. Not dissimilar to the porn thread I was expecting.

Buy it, a couple or more watches and you have made your money back.

I think it is a pretty good movie for that type of action movie. I can't comment on the quality of it on Blu-Ray though as I've only seen it on DVD.

Same here, I enjoyed it, at as owning on DVD (haven't picked up the blu copy yet...but will eventually), and of course since I'm a big Vinny fan, lol, that don't hurt either.

I thought the movie was horrible, I was lucky to get rid of the DVD copy I had that was a blind buy.

He should have started the thread xXx to not confuse all you porn hopefuls.

xXx is a guilty pleasure of mine. I really enjoyed the hard pounding metal music with the stunts and action.

This was a very early Blu-ray release and so I believe the movie was released before Sony started releasing their best work. This movie could use a remaster and release on BD50 with AVC encode. It's a 3.5 start Blu-ray IMO.

Pretty OK action flick. I would like his x-ray binoculars.

Best line in the movie: "*****es, come!"

It's a pretty forgettable film. There's a reason why it's been in the bargain bins for eons.
