XXX: Return of Xander Cage Movie Review

 

1.) Rating: 2.5/5. Review by Rajeev Masand on CNN News18

What it does offer is a leading man who is evidently enjoying himself. Diesel plays Xander with a lightness of touch, despite all the wall-to-wall fight scenes. It’s a casual, throwaway performance, more relaxed than his turn as Dom Toretto in the Fast and Furious movies. But the real pleasure of this film is Deepika Padukone. Whether landing a perfect split in her very first moment on screen, or delivering her lines without a hint of affectation or accent, she makes a lasting impression.

 

2.) Rating: 2/5. Review by Raja Sen on Rediff.com

Watch it for her on a bigger canvas than she’s been on, and for an Australian actress named Ruby Rose, who looks lethal the way only those with turquoise-tinged hair can, and for the two of them going down a hallway with guns in hand, badass girls going full metal Contra.

 

3.) Rating: 2.5/5 Review by Spotboye

Two kinds of people will go to watch this film – Deepika Padukone fans (read: people who want to see a Desi face in an international movie) and Vin Diesel fans (read: action junkies). And both will be pleased to the core. The movie caters to these specific groups, if you are one of them, watch it. Otherwise, this one is not worth your money and time. It’s less substance, more style.

 

4.) Rating: 3/5. Review by Hindustan Times

Often, we ‘review’ films based not on what we see, but what we want to see. The idea of how a film is supposed to be (usually in our heads) gets in the way of what the director, the actors and the whole crew really, have actually put together. It’s a mistake that we all make, but that doesn’t make it OK.

 

5.) Rating: 1.5/5. Review by Devarsi Ghosh on India Today

The world did not ask for Xander Cage to return, not at all, but thanks to some intelligent people with good intentions, the fifth Fast and Furious film became a blockbuster and Vin Diesel became relevant again. So, here we are. The Return of Xander Cage! Please put it back in the cage, lock it and bury it deep near the Mariana Trench where Hollywood can’t find it.
