Year Released/Rating: 2002 PG-13

Starring: Vin Diesel, Samuel L. Jackson, Asia Argento

Trivia: 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 occurred 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.

Cheesy action fun.  If we actually start to pick apart the movie, there are so many odd little mistakes and issues, but overall this film makes me smile.  I love the crazy action fun.  And Vin Diesel is too fun as an action hero.  So enjoy.

Best Bits: 

Milan Sova: First you set me up in the bar. Then you shoot me in the back.
Xander Cage: My boss does it to me. I did it to you. It’s a vicious circle.

[after a police SWAT team crashes in on his party]
Xander Cage: Okay, I’ll turn down the music.
~~
Toby Lee Shavers: [showing Xander the darts to the revolver] Datura knockout darts. POW! Guy goes down for 12 hours, wakes up, doesn’t know who the hell he is, and his head’s splitting like a cord of firewood.
[starts laughing]
Xander Cage: I was shot twice with those.
~~
Xander Cage: See that guy there? In the suit made out of motel drapes? That’s a cop.

[last lines]
Gibbons: Oh by the way, you passed the test. The Gibbons Test.
Xander Cage: You gotta be kidding me.
