Cradle 2 The Grave/Training Day 2 Pack
Cradle 2 The Grave
The slam, the glam, the jam: Cradle 2 the Grave brings it! Producer Joel Silver and director Andrzej Bartkowiak, who fused martial arts with hip-hop style in Romeo Must Die and Exit Wounds, take it to the next level with Cradle 2 the Grave. Screen heroes Jet Li and DMX hit home and hit hard, starring as rivals-turned partners in a volatile street war ignited by kidnapping, stolen black diamonds and a sadistic crimelord (Mark Dacascos). Kelly Hu and Gabrielle Union flex beauty and strength as foes destined for a clawdown. And Anthony Anderson and Tom Arnold add comedy jams to all the excitement that's set to gon'-give-it-to-ya tunes by Eminem, DMX and more. No mistaking it. From start 2 finish, Cradle rocks.
Rookie cop Jake Hoyt wants to stop crooks, not become one. But staying on the right side of the line that separates cop from criminal will be more challenging than anything he's faced. Because Hoyt's senior partner for the next 24 hours is Alonzo Harris, an undercover narc meaner than any of L.A.'s mean streets.
In a powerful departure from his frequent good-guy roles, Denzel Washington plays Harris, the twisted but charismatic detective who both attracts and repels as he becomes the kind of thug he's supposed to collar. Ethan Hawke plays unseasoned recruit Hoyt. And Antoine Fuqua (The Replacement Killers, Bait) directs, guiding a cast that includes music stars Dr. Dre, Macy Gray and Snoop Dogg. Training Day. It's a day of reckoning.
