Having run out of suitable candidates for the American secret service, Agent Gibbons forcibly recruits extreme sports star Xander Cage, whom he threatens with prison if he doesn’t co-operate. Cage is plunged into a Prague-set terrorist plot.
Sporadically entertaining, this is nevertheless seriously hampered by a very choppy screenplay. As for the star — well, Hollywood may have backed him all the way to the bank, but critics will likely wait for a better outing to decide whether Diesel really is something special, or just a case of Vin ordinaire.
