You know how I came up with the idea

for the Triple-X program?

Skateboards and swimming pools.

Skateboards used to be stuck on the ground.

Adolescent transportation. Then 1977 happens.

Big drought hits Southern California.

Got so bad, rich suburbanites couldn't

afford to fill their swimming pools.

That's when the light clicked on.

Some kid figured out he

could skate those empty pools

and get some real nasty air.

Dogtown and Z-Boys.

You ever seen it? It's a movie.

Doesn't matter.

Anyhow, our hero starts

doing things on a board

that no one's ever seen before.

Things the world thought were impossible.

Now, that kid needed that drought.

The world needed those empty pools.

That's why Triple-X.

Do you feel safer today

than you felt yesterday?

I know I don't.

The biggest, most expensive

military in the world,

and we're still scared of shoe and

tighty-whitey bombs at the airport.

Why is that?

Because soldiers are built

to take orders and fight wars.

But we, my friend, are not at war.

We are at peril.

That's why Triple-X.

What's the matter? You on a diet?

You ain't hungry?

So? It's lunch or dinnertime somewhere

in the world. Come on, eat up!

You know who does feel safe?

The men in charge. The world beaters.

The top-shelf, par excellence ayatollahs

with all the "dollahs. "

And that's because those righteous bastards,

somewhere along the way,

made a deal with the devil.

They traded liberty for safety.

And us, we the people,

ended up losing both. That's why Triple-X.

While everybody else is stuck on the ground,

we're doing shit on the board

nobody's ever even seen before.

Well, that's my pitch.

I always was a better spy than a salesman.

So, what do you say?

My bad.

So, I'll leave you be, then.

Who said there's no such thing

as a free meal?

Down on the ground, now!

Give me the money!

Don't move!

Hurry up!

Goal!

And you say you're no hero.

I got to call bullshit on that!

You're exactly the kind

of hero the world needs.

At the end of the day, it comes down to

the same question I've been asking my wife

every Friday night for the last 20 years.

Do you want some of this?

Or are you just gonna...

Access granted.

Okay, you may sit.

Gentlemen,

this is the device that crashed

the satellite and killed Gibbons.

Nerds in the lab have coined it

"Pandora's Box. "

My team backtracked the satellite's

last signal input to Miami.

Some asshole living the high life

at the Ritz-Carlton penthouse

thought he could hold the world ransom.

Three flashbangs, two bullets,

and one body bag later,

we took custody of the device.

We must have over 100 redundancies in place

to prevent some punk with a laptop

from hijacking satellites.

And Pandora's Box can bypass all of them.

With the push of a button,

it can eavesdrop on secure communications,

corrupt military software,

transmit false intelligence,

or crash a satellite out of the sky

like a goddamn tactical warhead.

One of you is behind this.

And I am not leaving here

until I find out who.

You fight me with a book?

Here you go, brother. Chapter one!

Page one!

Shit happens.

You're late!

Just in time, boss.

They bust in here, step on our throats,

and take the one device

that can cause a global power shift.

So, how do we get it back?

These assholes just took out the best

of the best like it was Sunday brunch.

We need someone who can move

like them, fight like them.

We need someone who can walk into a tornado,

and come out the other side

like it was a damn gentle breeze.

You know someone like that?

No.

But Gibbons did.
