This weekend marks the return of Vin Diesel in the long hibernating xXx franchise. If you're looking for an over-the-top action spectacle, then xXx: The Return of Xander Cage is exactly the movie for you. The action sequences in the new film are the definition of extreme, which is to say that they are completely ridiculous and unbelievable. I mean that in the best possible way.

The xXx movies found their home in the ideas behind extreme sports. As such, many of the sequences in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage come out of these same concepts. This means that pretty much everything that happens in the new xXx is some degree of completely bonkers.

This may be obvious, but here's your spoiler warning, just in case. While we won't be focusing on any specific plot points, this will give away numerous details that will give context to the awesome sequences.

Dirt Skiing

xXx, as previously stated, is all about extreme sports, so it makes sense then that the first big action scene has Vin Diesel skiing down a mountain. It's not snow skiing, because the mountain has no snow, it's clearly spring or summer, but he skis none the less. He begins by jumping off a communications tower after stealing a piece of equipment from it. It's not clear how he climbed it while carrying skis, but this is hardly the time to try and make sense of things. Then, part of the way down the hill he grabs a set of ski poles which he apparently planted there prior to climbing the tower. Carrying the skis up there was no big deal, but apparently bringing the poles was where he drew the line.
