YMMV / xXx


  • Anvilicious: Smoking is bad for you, yes. But having a smoker get blown up by a heat-seeking missile? If it was any more on the nose, viewers would be left with bruises.
  • Do Not Do This Cool Thing: Even though the movie ultimately portrays the anarchists as evil and wrong, their hedonistic lifestyle is pretty damn awesome. Show of hands, who wouldn't want to party all night in a castle, doing whatever you want and not having to worry about being in the office in the morning?
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
  • Memetic Mutation: "Two years? What was your plan? To let them die of old age?"
  • Shallow Parody: The first movie 'parodied' the James Bond Tuxedo and Martini spy model by having an NSA agent in the opening switching his spy suit for a tux while on the run from the bad guys. He then gets assassinated when he tries to dissappear into a rock concert actually held by the bad guys, because he can't blend in with the crowd. While the Bond movies did popularize this trope, Bond himself was never dumb enough to try something like this, and always dressed for the occasion.
    • Hell, in this situation, the spy couldn't just ditch the dinner jacket and bow tie? Maybe unbutton the dress shirt and ruffle his hair? It'd take him 10 seconds and he'd blend in much more effectively then.
