xXx: State of the Union

 (2005)

xXx: State of the Union Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

The winds of political change are rumbling through the halls of the Capitol as a popular President is being targeted for assassination by a radical splinter group of dissenters deep within the United States government. Only two people stand between anarchy and freedom: One of them, Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson), has just survived a hit on the National Security Agency's top-secret headquarters and is on the run. The other, a decorated Special Ops soldier, Darius Stone (Ice Cube), sits under close guard in a military prison. Gibbons once again finds himself in need of an outsider and Stone is his man. The new xXx agent must uncover the insurgents from within. It is the nation's only hope to stop the first coup d'état in American history.

xXx: State of the Union Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Sony delivers xXx: State of the Union to Blu-ray with an impressive 1080p, 2.35:1 transfer. Seeing as how the first xXx featured one of the worst transfers I have seen yet on Blu-ray, I was a bit apprehensive going into this one. However, knowing that Sony is now one of the best studios supporting Blu-ray and offering excellent picture quality on almost all their releases, I predicted a better-than-average picture quality for this film, and I was right. While not quite as demonstration worthy as Transformers or Saawariya (also from Sony), this transfer is nice and clear, one that is well above average for a Blu-ray release, even by today's standards. Colors are excellent, clarity is wonderful, edges are sharp and crisp, and detail is wonderful. There is some grain over the image, but those who dislike grain won't find it in abundance. There are also some small speckles on the print, but like the grain, they are not distracting. xXx: State of the Union features a bright, clean look throughout. Whether we are in the lush green fields of the farm above the underground bunker or in the cold, steely interior of the underground facility itself, the transfer never fails to reveal the finer nuances of every location. Flesh tones are a bit warm and rosy and contrast in general is pumped up in the movie. Facial detail is excellent, as it is in foreground objects. There is never a "reach out and touch it" feel to the transfer, but depth is still solid and the transfer looks good in every lighting condition thrown at it, from bright, sun-drenched exteriors to the dimly lit, smoke-filled interiors of the Capital building during the film's climax. Black levels are good throughout and colors are always rich and vibrant. While not a top-tier transfer, this one is leaps and bounds better than its predecessor, and is a good title to show what an extremely well-done, but not quite perfect, Blu-ray looks like.


xXx: State of the Union Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

xXx: State of the Union features a foundation-shaking soundtrack that is as lively and entertaining as the best tracks to date. The beginning of the movie features a fun action sequence that sounds great. The charges that blast holes into the underground base thump and pound with precision and power. Likewise, gunshots are some of the truest and most lifelike I've heard yet, and we can even hear spent shell casings clanking on the floor as they fly from the gun's ejection ports. The "flyboy" (the name given in the commentary track, the device is said to be ten generations head of what's available today) whizzes through your listening room from one speaker to the next, and the general mayhem of the scene fills each speaker with sonic bliss. This is one loud, rambunctious, and immersive sequence, one that sets the stage nicely for what's to come. The prison escape sequence is an all-encompassing listen with deep bass and continuous surround presence that makes for an extremely entertaining segment. Likewise, in chapter three, when xXx goes to the chop shop, the hip-hop music has a quality to it that sounds like you're in a dance club where deep lows rattle the windows and pulsate your eardrums. Listen to the gunshots in chapter four as xXx escapes on a boat and fires his weapon to ignite the fuel lines he's ruptured on the other boats. The gunshot itself shook my sofa, and the subsequent explosion practically ripped the room in two. Fans of the musical group Bond will want to hear their performance in chapter seven. The lively, entertaining music isn't as room-filling as the score, the hip-hop music described above, or the action pieces, but it makes for a winning segment in the movie. The tank battle aboard the carrier in chapter ten is more something you experience rather than listen to. All the superlatives that describe ear-shattering sound applies here, particularly during the scene's climax. xXx: State of the Union is one crazy listen, as active as any track you've heard, and as ridiculous and entertaining as the movie itself.
