His mission is one no other agent has been able to survive: He must infiltrate a Russian crime ring thats come into possession of Silent Night, a secret formula that will enable them to destroy the world. Now, with only his own cunning and athletic ability to rely on, Xander, or Triple X, has to win the trust of the criminals including the sexy, mysterious Yelena (Asia Argento)and find a way to stop them from succeeding in their deadly mission.

Betting XXX can succeed where other conventional spies have failed, Gibbons sends him to enter this world of crime undetected, using his natural athletic prowess and a whole lot of attitude. Enlisted for a dangerous covert mission, he must combat a clever, organized, and ruthless enemy far beyond the scope of his experience. Now the fate of the world lies in the hands of a new breed of secret agent.
