    Jet Li great, DMX not so great!

    I enjoyed watching this movie, but like most movies of this genre, certain parts left much to be desired. However, I love Jet Li and many of the actors in this movie, and thus I still rate it a 4! Jet Li is Su, a Taiwanese Intelligence officer who is trying to recover stolen "black diamonds" to bring back to his country. DMX is Tony, who is a master thief, whom steals the black stones from a diamond exchange only to lose them on a subway train trying to save his girlfriend Darryl (Gabrielle Union). The stones eventually wind up recovered by Mr. Chambers (Chi McBride: who does not get any credit at the movie's end?), who hides them in his Club, now run by Odion (Mike Jace from the Shield). Also helping out DMX is his brother, and Tommy ( the great Anthony Anderson)! Anthony is hilarious in this movie! Eventually terrorists led by Ling (Mark Dacascos) and Sona (Kelly Hu) kidnap DMX's daughter to get him to turn over the stones to him. Li and DMX team up to try and recover the stones from Chambers, and then recover DMX's daughter. Tom Arnold has a great role as a comedic arms-dealer, who helps out DMX and Li. I know some people hated the underground fight scene, but I loved it as it had Chuck Liddell and Randy Couture fighting Jet Li. I wish I could have seen Li bash Tito Ortiz's head in, but unfortunately the director made Tito tough for once in this scene. I kind of smirked when there is a scene of Ortiz defeating Liddell in the cage, which of course never happened in real life! The chase scene featuring DMX eluding police on an all-terrain vehicle is more comical than exciting. Especially when DMX is hopping from building roof top to roof top! Jet Li is once again such a great artist to watch. He is so fast and fluid taking out his opponents in this film. The final fight scene between Li and Dacascos is pretty cool, and the finality of the scene would not be a fun way too die! DMX was okay, but I believe he should stick to singing rather than acting or fighting. Special Features of the DVD: * Ultimate Fighting Champions: Features the UFC fighters in the film, and how they interacted with Jet Li. * Choreography of the Camera: features how they used many cameras to film the different angles and scenes of the film, especially the fight scenes. * DMX video "X Gonna give it to You" * Cast/Crew * And the Theatrical trailer of the film. Would have been nice to seen some trailers of other Jet Li films. Overall an enjoyable action film to watch!

    Cradle 2 The Trash

    I saw this movie back in March on Cinemax and I am glad that I did waste money on a rental.This film was trash.Firstly,the plot made no sense and did not come close to being believable,which would not in and of itself been a deal killer,but it tried to make up for it by too much senseless over the top action.Further,the characters were so one dimensional,you could tell who would be on what side by how they dressed.If you value plot,something in the way of believability and characters,stay away. P.S.It looks like DMX's movie career is over anyway,he was busted for stealing a car

    Awesome movie

    This movie had everything an action movie needs. I loved the cop chase. Top notch. And it plays great off of Romeo Must Die. Awesome!
