Danny has been kept by the mafia to perform deeds for them. Because of his collar, he is raised like a dog. If it is unleashed, all hell breaks loose. He becomes an unstoppable fighting machine. The story doesnít revolve around him; it also shows compassion of the human spirit by strangers and the resolution of who his mother really was. Yes some of the scenes are over the top but its casting and morale lesson speaks volumes. Morgan Freeman was superb in his role as a father figure. The action mixed with pertinent background music and luscious scenery was amusing. Jet Liís acting was stretched here; you can really empathize with him. Overall, this entertaining film had a lot to offer, if only it had more realism to it.

Of the Jet Li films i have seen, this one is the most enjoyable, and likeable of his characters. Very happy about Bart's unfortunite coma, Jet Li's character seemed to come to life, and you felt compassion for him and wanted to find a way to help him, hoping that his "owner" would die in the coma.

Gritty thriller with ferocious performances and sure-handed direction. The subject matter is strong and the violence quotient is high, but the pace is very unbalanced and Morgan Freeman's character is perhaps too wise for his own good. Bob Hoskins and Jet Li excel. Final Grade: B

This is Jet Li's best American film. Li himself is great in this and you really feel for all the characters. The fight sequences are great too. A good balance of story and action.

"Unleashed" by Yojimbo

Jet Li plays the son of a Chinese immigrant who is taken in by a London gangster at a young age and brought up as a kind of human attack dog, kept in a cage and trained only to fight. Upon finding himself free for the first time in his life after an attack by a rival mobster, he returns to the only person who ever showed him kindness, blind piano tuner Morgan Freeman; but the past inevitably catches up with him. Actually this rather unpromising and hokey sounding premise is easily the films greatest weakness. If you can look past it, you'll discover an extremely stylish and unusual thriller. The scenes between Li and Freeman's family have a genuine warmth and sincerity which never resorts to schmaltz, Li in particular bringing an innocence and pathos to his role. The direction is much mor...
