Xander Cage is your standard adrenaline junkie with no fear and a lousy attitude. When the US Government "recruits" him to go on a mission, he's not exactly thrilled. His mission: to gather information on an organization that may just be planning the destruction of the world, led by the nihilistic Yorgi.

Did You Know?
When Xander is climbing the rocks and infiltrating the castle, he is wearing a special jacket. It's actually a textile motorcycle jacket, produced by Joe Rocket, and its called the "Phoenix" series. It uses padding and ballistic nylon weaving to reduce the impact and abrasion damage caused in a motorcycle crash.
Errors in geography:
Ahab is supposed to cruise the world's oceans after passing through Prague; there are dams and weirs (at least one right in the middle of Prague) which would prevent it.
He stole the chip, he's inside.
I see him.
Kirill! Time to work.
James Bond meets Rocky Balboa with **** stunts

This movie is unbelievably stupid, but somehow people (including me)
like it. Just watch it, take it for what it is, and go with the flow.
Vin Diesel plays an "extreme protester" recruited by "The Man" to
accomplish some vague mission. Don't get too concerned about the
mission, or anything else for that matter. Anything resembling a plot
is present only to justify the explosion or parachute jump or whatever
impossible physical challenge the stunt-masters have come up with. Just
be happy you rented this instead of paid to see it in a theater. Invite
your friends over, have a few beers, and enjoy!!!
