    6 long-delayed action sequels that were worth the wait

    This Friday, 20 January, sees the release of ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage,’ third film in the extreme sports spy series, and the first time Vin Diesel has played the title role since the 2002 original (Ice Cube took over for the 2005 sequel, and will also appear in the new one). Diesel is of course no stranger to sequels, having reprised ‘Pitch Black’ anti-hero Riddick twice, and most famously his ‘Fast & Furious’ role Dominic Toretto on six occasions (including the upcoming ‘Fast & Furious 8,’ and his brief cameo in third film ‘Tokyo Drift’). A 12 year gap between movies – and a 15 year gap between performances for the leading man – is substantial, but Diesel certainly isn’t the only action star to return to a signature role after upwards of a decade.
