'xXx: Return of Xander Cage' movie review: Deepika Padukone stuns with some kickass action

xXx: The Return of Xander Cage has a meaningful message for us all- "Kick some ass, get the girl and look dope while doing it."

The third film in the xXx franchise, xXx: Return of Xander Cage, is a real stunner! With action from the furious Vin Diesel portraying the role of Xander Cage, a government operative, we got to see Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone in a kick-ass avatar like we never have before. Also starring Donnie Yen, Kris Wu, Ruby Rose, Tony Jaa, Nina Dobrev, Toni Collette and Samuel L. Jackson, the film follows the story of xXx (2002) and xXx: State of the Union (2005).

Now, back to Padukone, who plays the role of Serena Unger, she is not just a piece of eye candy who is merely there to add a degree of sex appeal to the film. Although, she does that anyway as she sports a pair of black leather shorts.

Despite her skinny built, Unger uses her cat-like reflexes as she tosses knives and grenades to gain the upper hand on her opponents in fights. She’s not some damsel in distress. Padukone’s character is one who could work her own way out of trouble and look badass while doing it.

The hotness quotient between Unger and Cage continues to pile up ever since their encounter. Cage, a former athlete who now works for the government, returns from the dead (at least that is what people thought) to retrieve a weapon but, he must do it before it falls into the wrong hands.

With a basic plot and Donnie Yen playing the primary antagonist Xiang, the film cuts to the chase about what it is, an out and out action flick. If you’re expecting anything more of it then you will be disappointed. Think of it like a 90s action movie: hand-to-hand combats, an unimpressive plot and script, a couple of blasts here and there and some pretty girls.

To sum it up, if you like action, go ahead with xXx: Return of Xander Cage because it will deliver and is very entertaining in that sense, however, you probably wouldn’t want to invest in such a film for a second time.
