A professional thief must team up with a foreign agent when his daughter is kidnapped following a botched heist.

Masterful thief Tony Fait's ostensibly successful heist of a number of valuable black diamonds turns terrifying when detective-turned-criminal Ling kidnaps his daughter, Vanessa, and demands the diamonds as ransom for her safe return. When the valuables are stolen and placed in the hands of a powerful crime boss, Tony must forge an unsteady alliance with Taiwanese agent Su to save his daughter and beat Ling at his own game.

Review by Bryan (posted on 13-Mar-2005)

Yet another movie about diamonds. This one features the blackness of DMX and the fighting skills of Jet Li. This movie is about a diamond thief (DMX) who pulls off a big score which results in a lot of people kicking the shit out of each other. He takes rare diamonds that are used for nuclear power and tries to bargain for his kidnapped daughter. It is filled with plenty of violence and is fun for the whole family. The funniest part of this movie is probly the ending credits, where Anthony Anderson and Tom Aronold talk.
