Pandora’s box in xXx: Return of Xander Cage

Keeping this in mind, let’s now look at the basic plot of xXx. In the movie, a powerful device called ‘Pandora’s Box’ — which can be used to send any artificial satellite revolving around the earth crashing into the planet to cause deaths — falls into the hands of the bad guys. And it is up to extreme athlete-turned-government spy Xander Cage, played by Diesel, and his allies to recover Pandora’s Box and save the day.

Where Pandora has its own significant???

In Greek, Pandora has an active rather than a passive meaning; hence, Pandora properly means “All-giving.” The implications of this mistranslation are explored in “All-giving Pandora: mythic inversion?” In this retelling of her story, Pandora’s deceitful feminine nature becomes the least of humanity’s worries. For she brings with her a jar (which, due to textual corruption in the sixteenth century, came to be called a box) containing “burdensome toil and sickness that brings death to men”, diseases and “a myriad other pains”. Prometheus had (fearing further reprisals) warned his brother Epimetheus not to accept any gifts from Zeus. But Epimetheus did not listen; he accepted Pandora, who promptly scattered the contents of her jar. As a result, Hesiod tells us, “the earth and sea are full of evils”. One item, however, did not escape the jar:

Only Hope was left within her unbreakable house,
she remained under the lip of the jar and did not
fly away. Before [she could], Pandora replaced the
lid of the jar. This was the will of aegis-bearing
Zeus the Cloud-gatherer.

Alexandre Cabanel

Pandora’s box is an artifact in Greek mythology, which contained all the evils of the world. Pandora opened the jar and all the evils flew out, leaving only “Hope” inside once she had closed it again.

Today the phrase “to open Pandora’s box” means to perform an action that may seem small or innocent, but that turns out to have severely detrimental and far-reaching negative consequences. The action cannot be reversed.

Which no were justified in the movie?
