This film is kinda special to me, I won't explain why here, it's kinda dorky, but what I will say is that I'm glad to have it on DVD, so I can watch it again, and relive certain things!
There are some great actors in this - alongside DMX and Jet Li, Gabrielle Union departs from her usual teen rom com roles, and gets to really sink her teeth into a decent role (along with DMX!) Tom Arnold adds the comedy to the film, and Anthony Anderson plays Tommy, who is so funny - especially when he's trying to be camp!
Jet Li is great (and cute) in all his films. Most of the film he seemed to stroll along with his hand in his pocket, and seemed to (casually, as if it was no big deal) attack the bad guys. And the worried look on his face when he's faced with a lot of bad guys - no problemo, he just takes his hand out his pocket!
What the black diamonds/stones storyline did seem to fall to the side quite a bit throughout the film, concentrating most of the time on DMX's little daughter in the movie, who acts [good]!
There's a very funny scene, which plays underneath the credits. Tom Arnold (Archie) and Anthony Anderson (Tommy) are talking about making a film about what they've just experienced, and who's going to play them etc. It's so funny, as they come out with these outrageous suggestions!
What's great about this movie, is the very rare use of guns. None of the "good guys" use them, they prefer to use their hands/feet to attack the bad guys.Read more ›
But this movie fails by putting him in the starring role, and by annoying me with the terribly unfunny Tom Arnold and Anthony Anderson. Take the space that they occupy and use it to allow Mark Dacascos to show his talents. He comes across as truly frightening in a couple scenes as the villainous Ling and the movie would have benefited from him being onscreen more.
It's extremely frustrating that the action in this film only includes him minimally. Take away the UFC fight scene, put him in there and you have something that would have truly impressed. The fight between him and Jet at the end is too short. The DVD could have at least included more behind the scenes footage of their fight but opted instead to allow the viewer to see the same fight from different angles. While moderately entertaining, it falls short of giving watchers what they want.
Anyway, Cradle 2 The Grave just may be one of the best action movies this year. It has a pretty standard action movie plot, but I wouldn't really say that's a bad thing though. Jet Li is just amazing to watch in the action scenes and does many things that none of us would even dream of doing. Tom Arnold and Anthony Anderson are actually pretty funny in this movie and the writers did a pretty good job here of mixing action with comedy for this film.
Overall, Cradle 2 The Grave is worth your money to rent it (or buy if you really like it) and most will probably get at least a little enjoyment out of it.

Only saw this movie because I'm a Jet Li fan. This is definately not one of his best movies, probably because he is redelegated to the role of sidekick. Read morePublished on July 7 2004 by Victoria

I only saw this because of Jet Li. I'm disappointed that he doesn't get his own movies. This was an alright film, but Jet wasn't at him best, thus the 2 star rating.Published on June 5 2004 by Taddese Zicke
