XXX (stylized as xXx and pronounced as Triple X) is a 2002 American action film directed by Rob Cohen, produced by Neal H. Moritz and written by Rich Wilkes. The first installment in the XXX film series, the film stars Vin Diesel as Xander Cage, a thrill-seeking extreme sports enthusiast, stuntman and rebellious athlete-turned reluctant spy for the National Security Agency. Cage is sent on a dangerous mission to infiltrate a group of potential Russian terrorists in Central Europe. The film also stars Asia Argento, Marton Csokas and Samuel L. Jackson. Cohen, Moritz and Diesel had previously worked on The Fast and the Furious (2001) as director, producer and cast member respectively.

PLOT 

Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) is an extreme stuntman out to undermine the corrupt rich and powerful. When he is captured by NSA, Xander (under the codename of xXx) is assigned to Agent Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson) to infiltrate a terrorist group called Anarchy 99 which is run by Yorgi (Marton Csokas). Getting into the group is easy, but when xXx learns that the plans of Anarchy 99, he must team with an undercover Russian agent named Yelena (Asia Argento) to stop Yorgi and his men…even if it means going against Gibbons orders and getting a little dirty in the process!

MAIN CAST OF xXx (2002)

Vin Diesel as Xander Cage

A thrill seeking American extreme sports enthusiast, stuntman and anti-establishment activist. Idolized in some sub-cultures, xXx is also hunted by the authorities and he is offered a deal to become a spy for the National Security Agency in exchange for leniency, the agency requiring an agent who can do the current job without the military professional training that Anarchy 99's background will allow them to recognise.

Samuel L. Jackson as Augustus Gibbons

A high-ranking official in the National Security Agency who has the power to give xXx a pardon for his crimes. He uses this fact as leverage to recruit xXx for a mission he knows xXx is the only person with the possibility of succeeding- infiltrating Anarchy 99-, recognising the benefits of xXx's rebellious attitude and unorthodox methods.

Marton Csokas as Yorgi

Former soldier in the army of the Soviet Union, now a wealthy hedonist owning a string of locations around Eastern Europe, including a castle and nightclubs. Yorgi is also the leader of Anarchy 99, a group of militant anarchists with a disdain for all forms of government and authority, and society in general. His ultimate aim is complete lawlessness across the world.

REVIEW xXx (2002) ENGLISH SUB ON XEMOVIE

Tattoos. Attitude. Muscles. Cueball noggins. Action sports. Attitude. Guns that look like willies. Evil Russians. Tattoos. Biggest-grossing US movie in blah-blah-yadda-yadda. Indeed, if Dubya and Dick Cheney had made their very own post-9/11 patriotic propaganda movie for the teens they need as globalisation fodder, then this would be it. Xander Cage is XXX is Vin Diesel is an action sports hero who has a problem with authority. Augustus Gibbons is Jackson with a comedy scar, who is an agent for the National Security Agency who forces XXX to foil some Russian goths who plan to plunge the free world into anarchy. Argento is the Bond Girl. Like the old action franchise, it has gadgets and explosions and one-liners and sex with women who don't talk. But don't bust a gut because you'll miss the jaw-dropping action set pieces, where Diesel's head is superimposed on to things that look a bit like snow and sky in a series of death-defying, um, stunts.
