The director piles on one expensive but impersonal action scene after another.
Mike Clark, USA Today  full review
 
Now I know what XXX stands for:Xtremely Xcruciating Xperience.
Bill Muller, Arizona Republic
 
Cohen ... loads the film with pow.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
 
[U]nrelentingly stupid.
Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper  full review
 
Essentially a dumb guy's day in Heaven.
Desson Thomson, Washington Post
 
Watching [Diesel] ... is a lot more fun than staying with the ever-feebler Pierce Brosnan in his decrepit adventures as MGM tries desperately to keep the creaking Bond franchise upright.
Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
 
Rather than 'a new breed of secret agent,' the makers of XXX have created a dumber version of Rambo, and I have just one question: YYY?
Peter Howell, Toronto Star  full review
 
Its scale and audacity, its brashness and vulgarity make it a pleasure from beginning to end -- or a guilty pleasure for those prone to guilt.
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
 
It's hard to tell with all the crashing and banging where the salesmanship ends and the movie begins.
Gene Seymour, Newsday  full review
 
For all its alleged youthful fire, XXX is no less subservient to Bond's tired formula of guns, girls and gadgets while brandishing a new action hero.
Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle  full review
 
The pretensions -- and disposable story -- sink the movie. And Diesel isn't the actor to save it.
Steven Rosen, Denver Post  full review
 
The racially ambiguous Diesel cuts a fine action figure. He has the glacial swagger left over from his bouncer days and looks as if he's been bench-pressing Sylvester Stallone since he was 12.
Wesley Morris, Boston Globe  full review
 
Ultimately, this is a movie as generic as its title.
Rick Groen, Globe and Mail  full review
 
Unfortunately, its efforts to pander to this pubescent demographic are often laughable.
Jonathan Foreman, New York Post
 
Every defiantly over-the-top action scene -- from high-stakes car chases to fearsome drug busts -- seizes your adrenal gland and milks it like an epileptic farmer.
Scott Steinberg, Atlanta Journal-Constitution  full review
 
In its own punk way, XXX is as good as a good Bond movie, and that's saying something.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  full review
 
In XXX, Diesel is that rare creature -- an action hero with table manners, and one who proves that elegance is more than tattoo deep.
Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com  full review
