Movie Summary

Director:
Lee Tamahori
Released:
2005
Rating:
PG-13
XXX: State Of The Union is a 2005 action adventure film directed by Lee Tamahouri. The film follows NSA Agent Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson) who recruits US Navy Seal and Ex-con Darius Stone (Ice Cube) to try to find out who penetrated a secret National Security Agency underground facility and killed 16 agents. Stone, who was put in a military prison for 20 years for disobeying orders and punching a general in the mouth, is no fan of the military establishment. When he finds out the general he punched, now Secretary of Defense George Deckert (Willem Dafoe), is involved in the murders, Stone will stop at nothing to bring him down. Working together, Stone and Gibbons track a mysterious military splinter group, stop an assassination and prevent the overthrow of the U.S. government. With an estimated budget of $87 million, this action film will not disappoint Ice Cube or special effects fans looking for a fast moving thrill ride.
