“X Is Gon’ Give It To Ya” are a few memorable words in DMX’s latest
single(Cradle 2 The Grave’s soundtrack) and he certainly “Gives
It To Ya” in his latest movie “Cradle 2 the Grave” to be released
February 28, 2003.
In this storyline Tony Fait played by (DMX) takes care of business
with his fiercely loyal and dedicated crew of professionals (ANTHONY
ANDERSON, GABRIELLE UNION and DRAG-ON).
After these masters of thieves pull off a complex heist obtaining
rare black diamonds, Fait quickly comes fist-to-fist with Su (JET
LI), a Taiwanese government agent who has pursued the rare stones
halfway across the world. As lethal as he is relentless, Su isn't
just hunting down diamonds - he's hunting Ling (MARK DACASCOS),
his former partner turn criminal, who kidnaps Fait's daughter Vanessa
(PAIGE HURD) in a ploy to exchange her for the stolen jewels. Fait
and Su find common ground and become a team in pursuit of Vanessa
and the jewels.
Action! Action! Action! is what you’ll find while watching this
movie at a major theater near you. The blending of martial arts
and street edge is creatively put together. DMX’s passion for his
daughter brings out the dog in him making him unstoppable on screen.
Just when you think the needle has hit near 10 on the rector scale,
we are introduced to the fiery-eyed Jet Li, whose presence engages
the audience with his calm but kick-ass demeanor. The beautiful
Gabrielle Union tames the men with her sexy and flirtatious manner
but nevertheless gets the job done. Anthony Anderson steals the
show with his satirical portrayal of a flamboyant gay man coming
on to a security guard as well as a pest control employee trying
to con his way into a night club. Though some scenes might seem
near fantasy, I think viewers will love this one. This action pack
flick keeps you on the edge of your seat.
