XXX: State of the Union
A nonstop orgy of bullets, bombs, and booty that aims low and hits the bull’s-eye with enough firepower to sink the Bismarck.
Film Review  April 29, 2005, by Marc Savlov
"...This film has attitude problems, too, chief among them being a penchant for over-the-top action set-pieces that come so fast and so furious that it’s a wonder you don’t have whiplash by film’s end.

Film Review  April 4, 2003, by Steve Davis
"...On stage, Chris Rock is a force to be reckoned with, a shrewd and sharp-tongued stand-up comic with real balls. So why does he come off so castrated in the ineptly made Head of State, a fumbling comedy about a black Washington, D.C., alderman chosen by the Democratic Party as its unlikely candidate for president? There’s only the faintest glimmer of Rock’s talent for piercingly funny humor here, a shortcoming for which the comic can only blame himself, given that he also produced and directed the movie..."
