Frequently Bought Together
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.
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 FetzerSee all Product Description

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.
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
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.
