Cradle 2 the Grave
Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”
This movie is completely preposterous from start to finish, and it seems to bear little difference from the other DMX films to date, all produced by Joel Silver for minimal intelligence and maximum marketability. But, on the bright side, it’s a hell of a lot of fun in spite of itself: The action scenes are appropriately over the top, and the music is exhilarating. It’s amusing to see DMX, Jet Li, Gabrielle Union, Anthony Anderson, Tom Arnold, and even Kelly Hu boiled down to the essences of their celebrity personas. A little more ambition is all the filmmakers need next.
