Martial arts sensation Jet Li teams with hip-hop star DMX in this action-packed adventure of a Taiwanese intelligence agent who finds himself uneasily allied with the leader of a crew of highly skilled thieves. When streetwise criminal Tony Fait (DMX) comes first to fist with Su (Li), the two discover they have a common enemy: the rogue agent whom Su is pursuing has kidnapped Fait's daughter. As ransom, the kidnapper demands a stash of black diamonds that Fait and his crew have stolen--but he wants the stones as part of a conspiracy to distribute a deadly new weapon of war. Now, no holds are barred in a battle from the Cradle 2 the Grave.

A secondhand action movie that retreads all the tired staples of the 1980s and '90s.

It's saying something when Tom Arnold's performance is among the movie's highlights.

A mess. Don't try to make it make sense.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie is extremely violent, with a lot of intense peril, many character deaths, and graphic wounds. A little girl is in peril and bound and gagged. Characters use extremely bad language, including racial epithets, but the group of good guys is racially diverse. Characters drink and smoke. A character pretends to be gay in order to distract a gay security guard, and there are some mild stereotypes.
