XXX - return of Xander Cage

A. How i ended up watching this -
I am subscribed to T-mobile Tuesdays, where there is somefreebie or other every tuesday. one of the weeks included a $5 credit for Vudu. Typically i use this for my Bachcha log like Captain America Civil war, Suicide squad, etc. But this time rounds, there were not too many rentals available for $5. I had recently seen XXX and XXX-enemy of the state on Netflix. SO thought of checking on this one too.

B - the movie itself - Synopsis -
Starts with Gibbons (Samuel Jackson) trying to recruit footballer (soccer player for Amrus) Neymar in his XXX program somewhat the same way like he originally got Vin diesel. But suddenly is killed when a satellite crashes. Looks like that was done by 'Pandora's Box'. It is now with CIA and discussions are on about what to do with it when a gang with one Xiang breaks in and shoots every one. THis Gang also has Serena, played by Deepika Padukone who has a Romanian Name but a Desi Accent. She has a fair amount of action scenes in this movie. The lady head of CIA, successor to Gibbons now locates Xander Cage (Vin diesel) in Dominican republic. he is helping poor people watch soccer by jailbreaking dishes and like Secret Agents out of work is having sex with much younger woman. He is back as XXX. We now see him doing his usual stunts and dishum dishum. The villains keep changing and the dead or past character come back to life regularly.
What happens to the Pandora's box. Who is it with in the end?
Watch the movie and post here. I have forgotten about it now. Or Check the wiki.
Take - Good if you like Bollywood style themes and hi tech dishum dishum. Else, plot is convoluted compared to original XXX. Deepika has a substantial role. good for the Desi Actors. But else, i am not a big fan of hers.

Re: XXX - return of Xander Cage

Deepika was a huge disappointment, she spoke like a fresher joins a team, and has no confidence.

Maybe that was her role... in which case, she excelled and probably in line for an oscar

I have heard the whole movie is bakwas. A group of my friends went to see the movie in the theatre and came out before the movie finished to spend better quality time in a pub
