Movie Mondays - Cradle 2 the Grave Edition
I'm a huge Jet Li fan. Figuratively and literally. I've seen all his American movies in the theater and bought DVDs of his early Hong Kong flicks on eBay. (The voiceovers are awesomely bad!) So I was excited to see this movie again. I haven't seen it for a few years. Two things immediately pop out: DMX is a horrible actor and Jet Li is a fucking badass.
"Cradle 2 the Grave" is not a great movie. But it's fun. And it has great action sequences. Jet Li is a Taiwanese police inspector who comes to...really, the plot is not important. This is the movie in a nutshell... opening credits... fighting... talking... fighting... fighting... talking... car chase... fighting... talking... gun battle... action... tank battle... fighting... the end.
If you want a good mind numbing action movie to kill some time and take your mind off life, then "Cradle 2 the Grave" is the choice for you.
My favorite scene? Jet Li vs. the UFC
