Product Description

Product Description

An explosive fusion of Eastern martial arts and Western street culture combine in this high-tech, non-stop action thriller, produced by Joel Silver (The Matrix Trilogy).

Screen heroes Jet Li (Romeo Must Die) and DMX (Exit Wounds) star as rivals turned partners in a volatile street war ignited by kidnapping, priceless black diamonds and a sadistic crime lord. Kelly Hu and Gabrielle Union flex beauty and strength as foes destined for a head to head clash whilst Tom Arnold and Anthony Anderson add comedy jams to all the excitement, set to some kicking tunes by Eminem, DMX and more.

From Amazon.co.uk

The intriguing cross-pollination of rap and kung-fu continues with Cradle 2 the Grave, co-starring high-profile rapper DMX and Hong Kong superstar Jet Li. Master thief Fait (DMX) hits a diamond exchange but comes away with a bag of black gems of mysterious origin. When a crime kingpin steals the gems from Fait, an international arms dealer kidnaps Fait's beloved daughter--and Fait can only get her back with the help of Su (Li), a Taiwanese intelligence agent tracking the gems himself. A summary of the plot doesn't do Cradle 2 the Grave justice; while the basic story elements suggest a dozen generic action flicks, the cast (including Anthony Anderson, Gabrielle Union and Kelly Hu) has genuine charisma and the movie layers action on top of action to strong effect. All in all, it's a much more engaging thrill ride than you'd expect. --Bret Fetzer

When his daughter is kidnapped and held in exchange for priceless black diamonds, the leader of a crew of highly skilled thieves forges an unlikely alliance with a Taiwanese Intelligence officer to rescue her.

Their race against the clock to find the precious stones ultimately unravels a plot to distribute a deadly new weapon of war.....

In the early 2000's, Joel Silver had a spate of producing martial arts movies with an urban edge, well his idea of urban edge was casting an R&B/Hip Hop star, and have Anthony Anderson shout very loud throughout the film.

Exit Wounds was great, Romeo Must Die was not, and this lies somewhere in the middle.

Again, the martial arts isn't the best in the world, and Li is given just more and more wire work to get through, and for some reason, it's pretty blooming racist in some scenes.

DMX does the same role he did in Exit Wounds, namely play a pseudo criminal with a heart of gold, and always having wire work at hand so he can literally run up a wall to get away from a dog.

But all in all it was made so Li could have a fight with Dacascos at the end, it even went to a public vote in Li's website.

The stunt at the beginning is brilliant and there is a good quad bike chase, but other than that, its forgettable stuff.

I guess when push comes to shove it’s an action film that delivers the requisite supply of biff, bam and kerpow action sequences. Yet even allowing for the old “leave the brain at the door” requirement for such action comic malarkey, the script is too poor, the acting equally so, while the choreography is weak. The latter of which a big misstep when you have Jet Li and Mark Dacascos fronting the good guy/bad guy axis of the story.

Plot pitches Li’s ass kicking detective with DMX’s urban thief together as an unlikely buddy buddy combo trailing missing diamonds and DMX’s kidnapped daughter, and that’s pretty much it. There’s no attempts to expand the characters or add some emotional depth to what is meant to be a pretty critical situation.

It often feels tired, like a recycling of so many other film’s of similar ilk, originality is out the window here, hell they even get Tom Arnold in to reprise a watered down version of his character from True Lies. Gabrielle Union and Kelly Hu are on hand to add the sexy sizzle in thankless roles, while Dacascos barely registers as an uber villain.

Lazy and redundant, all told, a waste of time for cast and viewers alike. 4/10

A good martial arts action film from the director of Romeo must Die and Exit Wounds. If you've seen those two, then you'll know what to expect. There's plenty of action from martial arts expert Jet Li (though he does only a few of the action scenes himself) and rap star DMX, who simply cannot act. Those of you who are action junkies will enjoy this film but those who are looking for something else...then this IS NOT FOR YOU! it's not great, particularly the crap plot and some cheesy scenes at the end, but it does contain enough action and car chases, some wicked tunes from the likes of Eminem, Jay-Z and DMX to satisfy Romeo Must Die fans. Plus the georgeous Gabrialle Union (Bad Boys 2) adds some spice to it too.
As for the DVD, there are some interesting features on the making of the film, profiles of the movie's martial Artists and DMX's music video for ''x gon' give it to ya'' but overall, i would advise you to rent this film before you buy caz if you've seen the trailer for this film and was expecting a great action movie then you might be slighly dissapointed.

I bought this because i needed to see this classic on bluray. I already own the dvd but as the film is one of my all time greats i thought seeing it better defined would be good, i thought the blu-ray was brilliant.

This is an OK film, but definitely not his best. “Romeo Must Die” and “Kiss of the Dragon” were fast paced and well balanced films, where generally, if someone got hit with a Roundhouse Kick, they went down. (Especially “Kiss of the Dragon”). This film started of well. (Funny how the EMINEM soundtrack had some of the swearing removed. Probably in an attempt at keeping the age rating down). This seemed to me to be primarily a DMX film, with Jet Li as a supporting actor. The humour that was supplied by Tom Arnold was as funny as a “Knock-Knock Joke.” The quad –bike chase, which finished inside a multi-storey car park, felt like the script writer had run out of ideas and wanted to get this bit over ASAP. Sadly this attitude spilt over to the ending, which was unbelievable and disappointing. If you like watching films that won’t tax your mind in any way, then this one should suffice.
