* IKnowMortalKombat: Xander is apparently so good at weapons from his First Person Shooter experience. On the other hand, he doesn't seem to understand the concept of a safety. Perhaps that's why he was given a revolver?

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: The protagonist of this film is turned into a NSA operative and sent to kick ass as Vin Diesel he is, which is cool enough but gets the agency wrong. In real life, all NSA does for the U.S. government is collecting data and breaking codes, and it doesn't have operatives in the same way CIA and FBI have: a real NSA recruit would be put in a desk to work with a computer, not sent to infiltrate a terrorist group.

A third film titled ''Film/XxXReturnOfXanderCage'' was released in 2017, which like the title implies would see the return of Xander Cage, who had seemingly been killed offscreen in the previous movie.

* ShootTheBuilder: The BigBad kills all the scientists with his bioweapon after they finished building his submarine. While it serves as a pretty good KickTheDog moment, it also raises FridgeLogic questions since he's planning to bomb ''every'' major city but they've only built one for him.
