Vin Diesel Says The Cut of xXx 3 is ‘Amazing’

xXx, released in 2002, was the third film (just after The Fast & The Furious and Pitch Black) that helped launch Vin Diesel star career. Even though he had major roles in The Iron Giant and Knockaround Guys, Xander Cage is arguably one of his most famous characters behind Dominic Toretto.

This third installment is more of a franchise resurrection after the second film, starring Ice Cube, didn’t live up to the expectations of the first. It wouldn’t be the first time Vin Diesel has come back and breathed new life into a struggling series. He, and the rest of the original cast, reunited with the fourth installment 3 years after Tokyo Drift.

He regularly addresses his over 100 million fans via Facebook live videos and, in a recent video, he talks about how excited he is after having seen a semi-final cut of xXx: Return of Xander Cage.

“[Paramount] is so poised to do something so amazing with XXX. I was speechless after watching the movie. I felt like it’s been a long time coming. The spirit of individuality that plays in the movie is kind of refreshing and kind of timely.”

The premise behind these films is very much like that of Suicide Squad — where unlikely criminals are recruited by clandestine government agencies to do some good by any means necessary. An X-Games version of James Bond, if you will, Xander Cage is the perfect anti-hero audiences can get behind.

“I don’t want to say anything negative, but I have to be honest. If there was one complaint I had about xXx the first cut, it’s too short. I wanted more… When people have been waiting 15 years for this franchise to return, you can’t just give them an hour and a half. It’s not fair because you just want more.”

As for plot, if the trailer is any indication, fans will certainly be treated to intense action sequences, exotic locations and, of course, Xander Cage saving the world in the most extreme way possible.

xXx: The Return of Xander Cage bursts into U.S. theaters on January 20, 2017.
