XXX: State of the Union
Source: Catholic News Service
Odiously overwrought follow-up to the 2002 action film about an ex-Navy SEAL (Ice Cube, stepping in for Vin Diesel) serving time, who is recruited into a supersecret government agency by a former team member (Samuel L. Jackson) in order to prevent a rogue arm of the military -- headed by a hawkish secretary of defense (Willem Dafoe) -- from assassinating the president (Peter Strauss). Directed by Lee Tamahori, this tedious testosterone-revved sequel is twice as violent, twice as ridiculous and twice as pointless as the original. Excessive violence, sexual innuendo, an instance of rough language and recurring crude expressions and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
