Cradle 2 the Grave
DIRECTOR: ANDRZEJ BARTKOWIAK
For years, audiences had been demanding a film that would pair Jet Li and DMX. Finally, in 2003, the studios listened. Li, the biggest martial arts star to emerge in Hong Kong cinema since Jackie Chan, re-teams with his Romeo Must Die and Exit Wounds director Bartkowiak, playing a Taiwanese intelligence agent who finds himself in an odd-couple teaming with X’s growly jewel thief, whose trademark bark is much present on the hip-hop heavy soundtrack. Two guys you really wouldn’t want to throw hands with, but it’s a blast watching them rack up a body count together.
