In the scene right after Fait was arrested and sitting on the bumper of the ambulance and the truck pulls up with the trailer pulling the four wheelers and dirt bikes, you see the guys getting out of the truck right away and you can see that the four wheeler in the back and the 2 dirt bikes are strapped down, but the front four wheeler is not strapped down.

Somewhere Between the Cradle and the Grave...
3 March 2003 | by blackwarrior400See all my reviews

Not a bad movie but nothing spectacular in terms of originality...

DMX beats up some people. Jet Li beats up some people. Gabrielle Union takes (most of) her clothes off (with her fine self). Lots of stuff breaks and blows up.

6 out of 10; I'd wait for the DVD...
