Film: xXx (2002)
Actor: Vin Diesel
Xander Cage is one hardcore man who is a little too rebellious to be left on the streets, so the law decided to get him before he broke it. Once recruited, Xander goes sightseeing in various locations around the world including the USA, Columbia and the Czech Republic. There is one condition though - he must kill some bad guys.
While Vin Diesel hit the acting scene in the 1990's, it wasn't until the early 2000's that he hit the mainstream in Pitch Black and xXx. This was also the period where he made the first Fast film - The Fast and the Furious.
Apart from one memorable (or, not) aside as a babysitter in The Pacifer, Vin Diesel has stamped his authority on the modern action genre with further Fast films, and Babylon A.D.
