JET 2 the Cradle and MARK the Grave, 2 very bad boys who just can't behave!!! (by RomeyRome)
Okay, so what's new here? Well........nothing. If you've seen "Romeo Must Die" than you've seen this. However, if you're a real Action-Head than you should check this movie out at least once. It's got some cool fight scenes particularly the scene where Jet Li fights all of those Ultimate Fighters in a cage match. I happened to play an Extra fighter on that scene so if you ever rent this movie on video look for the guy with a blue bandana around his head, a blue vest on, and a shiny gold watch. THAT'S ME! Anyhoo, aside from the weak story I found some of the <more>
costumes amazingly silly. Particularly, the scene where they showed the representatives from different countries made me laugh out loud. Also, you might want to stay while the end credits are rolling because there is more to laugh about here and this time it's intentionally funny, hee hee hee. Welp that's about all folks! From the "Cradle 2 the Grave" and from birth to earth, don't be scared to rob the "Cradle" and "Grave" for what it's worth!!!
Great action movie. Action started in the first minute and never stopped for the next 2 hrs. I was very surprised what a rush the movie was. DMX was very exciting! and Jet Li WOW! Everyone gave the best performance of their careers, including Tom Arnold, the comedy relief. By the way, don't leave when the credits start, they are the funniest part of the movie, and funnier than most of the stupid teen comedies that are being released today. I couldn't stop laughing all through the credits, none of the audience left until the credits had ended. I thought this was one of the best action <more>
Jet Li's most underrated awesome action flick my favorite! (by ivo-cobra8)
Cradle 2 the Grave 2003 is the most underrated Jet Li's American action work he ever done before. I don't get the hate for this film and I don't get the praise for Jet Li's film The One 2001 that get's thumbs up, but this one get's thumbs down! I will never understand the hate for this film! I love it to death, It is a fun action film, it is Jet Li's second film timing up with polish Director Andrzej Bartkowiak and actors DMX and Anthony Anderson who previously worked with Jet Li on Romeo Must Die. Drag-On and Tom Arnold teams up from the film Exit Wounds 2001 <more>
they both worked together with Andrzej Bartkowiak. It is really a shame that Aaliyah died two years earlier otherwise she would be cast in this movie. I guess director Andrzej Bartkowiak did not wan't Steven Seagal for this movie anymore, because apparently they all did not get a long. DMX really had hard time working together with Steven Seagal on Exit Wounds. I love this film to death, it is my second favorite Jet Li action film it is my number 2 action film! I know more Jet Li's American work: Romeo Must Die, The One, War, The Expendables 1,2 and 3, Kiss of the Dragon and Cradle 2 the Grave and I absolutely love this film! I kept watching it as a teen and I still do!"I am Su." "I'm *not* Bruce." Plot: When his daughter is kidnapped and held in exchange for priceless diamonds, the leader of a crew of highly skilled urban thieves DMX forges an unlikely alliance with a Taiwanese Intelligence officer Jet Li 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.The basic plot about this film it is about a power, a black diamonds are stolen from a Jewel thief DMX and his team but a sadistic crime lord Mark Dacascos want's them back, so his men kidnaps Jewel thief's daughter for exchange of the diamonds. To get the diamonds back, jewel thief races against time, with his team to recover the stolen diamonds, with a help from Su Jet Li a Hong Kong cop. This film is more about a revenge and arms dealing and theft of a black diamonds it is a mystery of what is about. Crimelord Mark Dacascos was a Hong Kong cop and Jet Li's partner, but he betrayed Jet Li and he tried to kill him, Mark Dacascos come to America with a stolen black diamonds which he stole them, but he lost them. The diamonds are for a powerful laser weapon and Mark Dacascos is selling the weapon for a highest binder on an auction. The black diamonds belongs to the Hong Kong people not to the foreigners and Jet Li's role in this movie is to find to black diamonds and to stop his former partner. Jet Li also helps the jewel thief finding his daughter and he is teaming up with a jewel thief. I love this film to death! Their is plenty of action, martial arts from Jet Li and Mark Dacascos. Gabrielle Union from Bad Boys II is also in here and she did well in her lead role. I seriously love her character she did everything to help his friend finding his daughter. Anthony Anderson and Tom Arnold add comedy to all the excitement. Kelly Hu and Gabrielle Union flex beauty and strength as foes destined for a beat down. Also producer Joel Silver returns with director Andrzej Bartkowiak, who fused martial arts with hip-hop style in Romeo Must Die and Exit Wounds, take it to the next level with Cradle 2 the Grave.I love the songs of this film by Eminem - Go To Sleep I love this song I have been always been a fan of Eminem. My Life Cradle 2 the Grave from Foxy Brown ft. Althea Heart is another song that I love and X Gon' Give it to Ya from DMX which I love his songs and DMX is talented rapper. Because this film with Romeo Must Die had a lot of hip hop songs in it and I love it they are all beautiful songs. Everyone in this film did an amazing job! Overall: This is a fun action film, it is excited it has plenty of action, guns, explosion, tank in this movie and a lot's of martial arts from Jet Li. In my honest opinion Cradle 2 the Grave and Romeo Must Die are MILES way better films than Exit Wounds, The One and War I hate those three films. The rating is 10/10 because this film is very underrated and people does not appreciate this days a good action movie anymore!

Overall an entertaining film, but nothing new (by kokojie)
The film was certainly entertaining, all the actors has done a good job. DMX was not convincing, but I'll let him pass. The worst thing about the film is that it has no depth, the story is ridiculous, details are not well done and not clearly explained. This is one of those watch and forget films.
superb action movie (by dirty_harry_potter)
After watching and enjoying this movie I thought I would check up the review on IMDB and was amazed at what a low score had been awarded to it.I felt compelled to register for the first time and add my own comments.This is one of the best action movies I have had the pleasure too see in a long time and I can say that with an unbiased view.It seems alot of the previous reviewers slate the actor/ rapper DMX. Now I could not tell you who DMX was before watching this film but in my mind he gave an excellent performance together with Jet Li and Gabrielle Union.I particularly enjoyed the quality of <more>
the fight scenes throughout the film together with the anti-firearm message put across by Jet Li and DMX the good guys ....lets face it hand combat commands greater respect.watch and enjoy this great movie, however, if you have a hang up about music artists taking part in movies you might not like it9/10
This movie was very entertaining,I pretty much like the peformance of Jet Li with his martial arts skills.Thogh I am not saying he is the next Jackie Chan,but he still kicks ass. DMX is one of my favourite rappers, his acting may not be an oscar winning performance, infact I did'nt think it was that bad. But he is still fit to be an action star.He is more like the black version of Vin Diesel.Tom Arnold and Anthony Anderson were hilarious and they both did a great job in the movie.Same goes to Mark Dacasos and the rest of the casts.
Good for what you would expect. (by Darkness876)
Ive seen a lot of bad reviews for this film and i am sick of these dorks that only give monsters ball and other films of the genre high ratings because of nudity and "good scripts". This is an action movie wit jet Li and it delivers what you would expect. Hell DMX even attempts to use martial arts and his acting is certainly improving as is Jet Li's. Combine Romeo Must Die and Exit Wounds and this is what you get. The fights are great Jet vs the champions of UFC , the comedy is there Tom Arnold and Anthony Anderson and the film is certainly entertaining so if you want a <more>
mindless film with lots of action this is it. Damn Monsters ball. I give this movie a 8!
I didn't expect a spectacular film, just something that would keep me entertained for the majority of it. I got just that. Jet Li's fight scenes were worth my while and quite well done. The addition of Mark D. was a nice addition, he is a great opponnet for Li. I just wish they had more screen time together. The biggest weak spot to this film was DMX. He is not even close to a good actor, and he can't do entertaining fight scenes, and is very weak when emotional scenes are being done ie. with his daughter here . This film could have been much better if there had been some other <more>
angle than a kidnapped daughter. Overall I think this movie while not excellant, was pretty good. Fans of Jet Li might like it, if you can stand most of his other U.S. films, than this will be more of the same. 8/10
Hey, it's not Fellini, but I didn't expect Fellini. It's a good, old-fashioned, good guys vs bad guys kind of flick. One that's fairly predictable, you can sit back, grab the popcorn, and just wait for the guys in the white hats to kick the butts of the guys with the black hats.So, the actors aren't the best I've ever seen, but I was actually surprised and pleased with DMX's performance, probably because I didn't expect much and I don't care for his 'music' at all. If nothing else, his character did come across as likable and he may surprise us all <more>
and improve with time. Both the movies I've seen him in, he at least portrays the "bad guy who's not a bad guy at all," and at least gets a couple of points from me for trying to be a positive role model. I've seen Oscar winners who had worse performances, and people are being pretty hard on him on this board, but I think he did more than OK for the material he had to work with.The movie is provided with the obligatory comic relief with Tom Arnold and Anthony Anderson, and some other supporting actors with whom I'm not familiar, and of course the Jet Li fight sequences are always worth watching. How anyone can move that fast is incredible and I could watch him read the Yellow pages aloud just to watch the fights.So, if it's a good, old-fashioned throwback to the good guys vs bad guys movie you're in the mood for, check it out.I doubt you'll be disappointed.
