Tell me a film that doesn't have a generic plot these days. Exactly who is paying attention to the plot when you've got the gorgeous Jet Li & DMX to eye up? (And lets throw in Gabrielle Union and Kelly Hu for the guys out there) So the plot's been done before, it's still interesting!
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.

I'm not a fan of most rap and I'm not a fan of the recent trend of combining rap themes into kung fu movies. I was surprised then, to find myself thinking DMX was watchable in this movie. To say he's a better actor than rapper is really more a comment on his rapping than his acting abilities, but he does pull off a decent job.
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.

I used to never think of DMX as a very good actor, but after this movie, I've completely changed my opinion on the man. But unfortuanitely, I can't say the same for Jet Li. Now I don't expect Jet Li to know perfect English and be the next Robert Deniro, but he shows absolutely no emotion at all throughout this entire movie. But I guess I shouldn't have expected much anyway, since good acting skills are rarely needed in action movies.
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.

It is hard to imagine how Hollywood could take a big budget film and liberally sprinkle it with over the top special effects and big name stars (Oops, perhaps not--think of dozens of other Hollywood stinkeroos) and still produce a money and time waster. Director Andrej Bartowiak in CRADLE 2 GRAVE utterly wastes the talents of Jet Li and DMX in a film that starts out as a vault heist but quickly morphs into far too many sub plots, none of which is believable. The problem with making the heist the primary focus of interest would have been that Jet Li would have had precious little to do. First Li battles DMX, then some hoods, then an octagon full of Ultimate Fighting Championship Martial artists, and then finally squaring off against bad guy Mark Dacascos in a climactic confrontation that has surprisingly little sizzle and pop. As I watching DMS and Li team up to regain some stolen jewels that were not jewels at all, I could see that the overlapping plotlines and poor scripting allowed that 'willing suspension of belief' to evaporate so that what was on the screen were actors clearly acting, not vicariously permitting the viewer to put himself into a believable world of cause and effect. One sure fire way to tell whether an action movie has anything going for it is to count how long it takes the director to move from one fx scene to another. In C2G, this happens once every three minutes. Finally, I had a problem with the film's moral sleaziness. Director Bartowiak would have us accept some heisters as being basically good types with strong bonds of love, friendship, and family ties. If DMX were really such an upstanding young man, then why show him involved in crime?Read more ›
