I haven't seen XXX yet, but the idea of a "secret" agent who is easily identifiable and stands out in a crowd seems a bit off to me.
XXX: I think my cover is blown.
Other guy: Do you think it might have something to do with that big ass "XXX" tattoo on the back of your neck?

"Brotherhood of the Wolf" is looking like it will be my favorite for 2002.

Please ignore post, I have no idea what I am talking about.

Jason, you seem to know too much about secret agents... Noo tatoos, birth marks, no easily identifiable facial (and body) features... Is that your portrait?
I am sure XXX is a dumb GenX-action movie.. But J Bond has no better cover either... One more action hero, K Reeves.. remember "WOW!", what a punch phrase! :roll: Although movie itself (I am referring to "Matrix") is one of my favorite.
I am looking forward to T3, with a budget like that they must come up with good stuff
