The plot of the story revolves around Xander Cage who is a government operative. He has been incognito and actually thought to be dead, but he comes out of his self-imposed exile to compete in a race against master villain Xiang to find "Pandora's Box" a powerful weapon. Even though Xander (Vin) is an extreme athlete, he still needs to recruit a team of other thrill-seekers to help him. He finds himself in the center of world government corruption and conspiracy that is deadly serious.

Metacritic tells us that in the 107-minute action thriller Xander Cage "secretly returns to action for a new, tough assignment with his handler Augustus Gibbons."

Nobody has seen the movie yet, but if the previous movies are anything to go by, we can expect "a ton of explosions, gun violence, scantily clad women, and extreme stunts ranging from dangerous to impossible." This was the assessment made by Commonsensemedia Org.
