Daniel Stephens has reviewed the Region 2 release of XXX. This very loud follow up to the director's last effort 'The Fast And The Furious', has a lot of explosions, gunfire, fast cars and one-liner's but it only adds up to a join-the-dots action film, that is easily forgotten once the credits roll.
