Gag Reel
A goofy three minute look at some of the bloopers from shooting XXX: The Return of Xander Cage, best of which is probably a sweary, sleep deprived Toni Collette, a relaxed and casual Donnie Yen and seeing Vin break ‘Xander Cage’ face and melt into the goody nice guy we are pretty sure he is, plus Samuel L. Jackson hamming it up cause you know everything this man does looks cool and you can bet that his two appearances on this gag reel are caused through no fault of his own!
