A new trailer for the insane-o action threequel xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, starring Vin Diesel in the title role, is now available, and it’s hilarious. Directed by D.J. Caruso (Disturbia, The Salton Sea), this sequel that no one really asked for resurrects a character that was created in the midst of the “extreme sports” craze of the early 2000s and tries to make him relevant in the current action landscape.

I’m not exactly a fan of “so-bad-it’s-good” movies, and while it’s at least a film that’s not trying to spoof itself, the dialogue by screenwriters Chad St. John (London Has Fallen) and F. Scott Frazier (The Numbers Station) on display in this trailer is simply so-bad-it’s-bad. I suppose the action could be a draw for some folks (there’s a motorcycle that turns into a jet ski here that is almost impressively ridiculous), and I have to imagine this movie was made for someone, but I’ll take John Wick over Xander Cage any day.

Regardless, take a look for yourself in the trailer below. The film co-stars Ruby Rose, Nina Dobrev, Toni Collette, Donnie Yen, Tony Jaa, Deepika Padukone, and Rory McCann of Game of Thrones fame. Samuel L. Jackson also returns as Agent Augustus Gibbons. xXx: The Return of Xander Cage will hit theaters nationwide on January 20th, 2017.
