Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick's past.
The wanted criminal Riddick arrives on a planet called Helion Prime, and finds himself up against an invading empire called the Necromongers, an army that plans to convert or kill all humans in the universe.
Extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) comes out of self-imposed exile, thought to be long dead, and is set on a collision course with deadly alpha warrior Xiang (Donnie Yen) and his team in a race to recover a sinister and seemingly unstoppable weapon known as Pandora's Box. Recruiting an all-new group of thrill-seeking cohorts, Xander finds himself enmeshed in a deadly conspiracy that points to collusion at the highest levels of world governments.Written by

When Jane Marke is presenting the airplane to Xander Cage, she claims that the airplane has been modified to "have enough fuel to circumnavigate the Earth three times without landing".
The airplane is a Boeing C-17 Globemaster III, which originally has a maximum fuel range of ~11 000 km, if it's (more or less) empty(this number is halved if there is any payload). To do this, the airplane needs ~134 500L of fuel. If it is going to circumnavigate the earth three times(~120 225km), it would require ~1,5 million liters of fuel, more than 10 times the original capacity. If they actually did add this amount of fuel (and fuel tanks) to the airplane, the airplane would have a takeoff weight of 132 000 metric tonnes, which is ~5 times max takeoff weight, and 1700 times the payload for the C-17.
Another point to this, is that the C-17 Globemaster III is capable of Air to Air refueling, meaning that they can, at least when it comes to fuel, fly indefinitely as long as they get AtA refuels. See more »
You know how I came up with the idea for the Triple-X program? Skateboards and swimming pools.

Dumb but cool, clichéd but refreshing, soulless but entertaining. Same old story, same old dialogues, same old content and same old humour. Nothing new, at all; but it still won't bore you, with all the fighting sequences and pathetic jokes. It lacks vividness and also needs some polishing, but i guess at the end you won't be disappointed. Good visual effects, good stunts and some cool music are the only highlights. No wow factors(except for some cameos), totally predictable and a typical Vin Diesel film with no brains attached.
Unless you are a XXX fan, don't waste your money.
