Cradle 2 the Grave

Continuity mistake: DMX uses his Porsche to slide a dumpster into the vehicle following him, staying in contact right up to the impact, so by rights the back of his car ought to be wrecked, but in all the scenes afterwards when we see his Porsche, it doesn't have a scratch on it. (00:31:30)

Continuity mistake: In the beginning when Su kicks Christophe over the couch, Christophe moves from the back of the couch closer to the step when Su places his foot over Christophe's throat. (00:06:15)


Continuity mistake: When Fait goes to see Jump in prison, you see Fait almost go after him when he tells Fait to make another little girl. Jump is sitting in his chair and he brings his cigar up to his mouth when he says "Drama". The camera angle changes and the cigar is no longer near his mouth. The camera angle changes again and the cigar is back in front of his mouth. (00:42:56)


Continuity mistake: When Fait's daughter gets the key to the van, she drives the van in the warehouse crashing into a number of items and you see the front of the van getting damaged. When we see the front of the van again right after Jump gets killed in prison, the front of the van shows no damage. (01:12:03)


Continuity mistake: When DMX jumps into the building through the window, you can see that the view outside isn't real but only a photo/visualisation. (00:54:55)

Continuity mistake: When DMX takes the quad, he's almost on the other side of the street until the two guys notice he took the quad. They should've heard it as soon as DMX started the engine. (01:01:05)


Continuity mistake: Right after Su kicks the personal guard of Jump in the jail cell, you see Jump put his cigar back in his mouth and start to open his newspaper, but when the camera angle changes the cigar is no longer in his mouth. (00:43:26)


Continuity mistake: When Fait's partner goes to jump over the barbed wire fence, you see a pole that is directly under him. The camera angle changes and as you see him jumping over the fence the pole is no longer there. (00:51:47)


Continuity mistake: When Ling is trying to escape from the aircraft hanger in the helicopter, the helicopter loses stability and he sees Su hanging on the landing gear and you see the landing gear start to raise. Then in the next shot he tells the pilot to raise the landing gear and you see the landing gear start to raise again.

Continuity mistake: When Fait spots the Navigator following him, he speeds up in his car weaving in and out of traffic. He comes up to a mini van in the right hand lane and then goes into the left lane where you see a side panel van about 20 feet in front of him in the left lane. The camera angle changes and the left hand lane is now seen with no cars in it, which allows him to speed up even more. (00:28:02)


Continuity mistake: Right after the side panel van disappears in the left hand lane when Fait is trying to outrun the navigator, the camera angle changes again and you see Fait turning back into the right hand lane. In the left lane the side panel van has reappeared. You see a police car directly in front of the van. The camera angle changes yet again, and you see an overhead shot of Fait passing a different car in the left lane before seeing the police car. (00:28:07)


Continuity mistake: After the helicopter is shot down and crashes onto the pavement, shouldn't the windows in the helicopter be all broken or smashed? Yet there are a couple that are still fully intact. (01:29:00)

Continuity mistake: Right before Su throws the karate little person, you see one of the bad guys coming up behind him. The camera angle changes and the bad guy disappeared. (01:02:56)


Continuity mistake: When the police surround the parking garage, you see them, via a television which is being watched by Fait's daughter, check and then wave through their blockade a dark gray car with a sunroof. The camera angle changes to a live scene of the parking garage, and you see the police waving through the same car through their blockade again. (01:11:17)


Continuity mistake: When Fait throws his bag over the barbed wire fence on the roof, it lands on its side. After Fait and his partner jump onto the roof he walks over to the bag and it is now sitting right side up. (00:51:46)


Continuity mistake: When DMX is in prison with Jet Li and Caldwell is having breakfast, he cuts a piece of meat and sticks it on his fork. The camera cuts to DMX and when it cuts back Caldwell has now a piece of something that isn't meat (looks like a piece of pancake). (00:40:00)

Plot hole: When the "black diamond" is being turned into its dangerous form, the arms dealers get very excited. Yet all they actually see is a very pretty laser show. There is nothing to show that the object really has any destructive power. Arms dealers make their fortunes by being cautious and smart. They shouldn't be so quick to accept the claims of the bad guy and bid money on possibly useless stones. (01:18:20)

Trivia: The last conversation between Tom Arnold and that big guy is an obvious tribute to the conversation between the same two actors at the end of Exit Wounds. They even mention the latter in the former.

More trivia for Cradle 2 the Grave

Question: Did anyone notice that the sky during the scene where Fait and Ling are driving across a bridge is particularly deep blue? I can't decide if that's a really deep blue sky or it's a blue screen without the sky added in.

Answer: The whole scene shows them driving on the bridge obviously shot from a helicopter. The whole sky is blue, so unless they had a very large blue screen, then I would say NO. Besides that scene is supposed to represent night-time. Therefore it's supposed to be the glow of the moon.
