“Action boner”

It’s xXx time. Sit back and let your inner child bask in the delights of pure awesome action. Zero gravity gun fights, a motor bikes chase over the sea and a multitude of explosions that would make Michael Bay sit up, are just some of the things that will make your inner 12-year-old buzz.

It’s about time a decent action film came out. This is what we’ve been missing since the 1990’s bond films, Proper honest films, filled with gadgets and over the top stunts that don’t pretend to be true to life or grounded in reality. All this film wants is for you to leave the cinema will a massive smile on your face and a fizzing sensation in your genitals.

The casting was fantastic. Sure, Vin Diesel is a bit old to be taken seriously riding a skateboard but this isn’t trying to be a serious film. The Hound from game of thrones (Yarp man from Hot Fuzz) kicks arse as stunt driver Tennyson. Ruby Rose kicks arse as gun slinging Adele Wolff, (which does more for feminism then any 2-and-a-half-hour Oscar winning snore fest) and finally, Donnie Yen goes old school to kick arse like Bruce lee. overall, quite the kicking of arses.

This movie is heavy on humour too, with nearly every scene never missing the opportunity for getting a laugh out of the audience. There’s even a character in the movie whose sole purpose and special skill is to be fun to hang around with. You don’t get any of that in a Jason Bourne Movie.

This is definitely the best movie of the year so far, and as it’s only February, the rest of the year has a lot to live up to.

3/3
