From the title you would think that this is the mandatory porn film of the season. If you search for images for this film on Google, you get the same. This isn't a porn film though. (I just lost half the people reading this book). What this film has got is "violence, non-stop action sequences, sensuality, drug content and language". (taken from the MPAA website).

I'm going to keep this review short and I don't want to discuss the plot too much mainly because there isn't a great amount to say about it:

Vin Diesel plays Xander Cage. He's your standard adrenaline junkie with no fear and a lousy attitude. When the US Government "recruits" him to go on a mission, he's not exactly thrilled. His mission: to gather information on an organization that may just be planning the destruction of the world, led by the nihilistic Yorgi.

See? the plot is not that original. All you have to do is come up with a good guy with some kind of inner turmoil, a bad guy with a hatred for someone or something and slap the two together with some attractive girls... But that works so well. It's an action flick in the same genre as James Bond and if you like Bond type films you'll like this. If you love Bond films you'll think the Americans are trying to do a Bond rip-off.

You've just finished your exams. Come and start the new term with a new breed of super agent.
