Special Notes:

Story Synopsis:
Armed with a potent combination of charisma, street smarts, and martial arts expertise, Tony Fait (DMX) dominates the streets, taking care of his fiercely loyal crew with a dedication surpassed only by his love for his young daughter. But when his daughter is kidnapped and held in exchange for a cache of priceless diamonds, Fait must forge an unlikely alliance with a Taiwanese intelligence officer (Li) who has pursued the extraordinary stones halfway across the world. Adversaries by code but allied by circumstance, the master thief and the enigmatic agent join forces to wage war on their common enemy. "Cradle 2 The Grave" is definitely for lovers of fatuous action movies. (Suzanne Hodges)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.40:1 DVD exhibits a picture that is sharp and detailed, with nicely rendered clarity and textures. Colors are vibrant and well balanced, with natural fleshtones, bold hues (reds and blues especially pop from the screen), and the deepest blacks. Edge enhancement can be quite annoying, but pixelization is rarely a problem. (Suzanne Hodges)
