Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) is a mouthy youth with an alternative lifestyle, rebel attitude, and endless criticism of the establishment. He routinely spouts off via online videos about how government is failing today's youth with glib one liners like "Video games are our only education." After one filmed prank goes a tad too far, he is faced with either backing up his big mouth to make a real difference in the world or rotting in prison. He takes the deal and finds himself headed to Russia. His bad reputation makes him the perfect spy to insert into an underground crime ring and put a stop to something worse than the financial extravagance of American politicians. Things turn unexpectedly interesting after he meets the beautiful Yelena.
