XXX: State of the Union Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

A new renegade fighter rises to defend the United States from an internal threat in this action thriller. Augustus Gibbons ([[Performer~P34866~Samuel L. Jackson~samuelljackson]]) of the National Security Agency has successfully dealt with a number of threats to America's safety, but he faces a whole new challenge when he discovers a potent terrorist cell that has ties to the upper levels of the American military. Gibbons learns that George Deckert ([[Performer~P16547~Willem Dafoe~willemdafoe]]), the secretary of defense, has been training a secret military faction to stage a coup against the United States by kidnapping and assassinating the president of the United States ([[Performer~P68663~Peter Strauss~peterstrauss]]). Convinced there's no one he can trust within his circle of operatives, Gibbons turns to Darius Stone ([[Performer~P34311~Ice Cube~icecube]]), currently serving time in a maximum security penitentiary. Stone once served with Gibbons in the Army, and also took part in a mutiny against Deckert; despite his reckless side, Gibbons is certain Stone's fearless nature and peerless fighting skills make him the one man who can take on Deckert and his troops. XXX: State of the Union is the sequel to the 2002 hit XXX, though neither star [[Performer~P221690~Vin Diesel~vindiesel]] nor his character, Xander Cage, appear in this picture. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
