Luc Besson's signature style is all over the writing of this very fine little film. His ability to push the buttons on the most violent screen business while gradually developing a tale of warm sentiment is well served by director... Full review

So in the last few years we have seen Jet Li in Romeo must die and Cradle to the grave, both modern and with Jet Li approaching the subject of acting, though hardly touching it. So far Jet Li has... Full review

It has happened finally. Jet Li has made a foreign movie (that would be a non Chinese movie) that is actually good. For the most part, Jet Li's career in American and European movies have been brainless action movies. In... Full review
Rating: **** out of ****If I'm always skeptical of Jet Li's English-speaking films, it's for good reason. They're usually crap. Too often, he's either been put in the hands of incompetent directors who couldn't properly film or edit his impressive... Full review

I won't say the first two minutes of the movie are worth the price of admission, but it is pretty close. This is the second movie to be released this year with amazing martial arts sequences that make people squirm... Full review

This was a breakthrough performance for Jet Li. It was nice to see him get away from just being the amazing fighter, and seeing him in a little bit more of a serious role. Of course Morgan Freeman was simply... Full review

Unleashed" has incredible moments of operatic, absurdist violence....To maintain Danny's character arc, director Louis Leterrier ("The Transporter") isn't afraid to show his rough side....Choreographed by Yuen Woo-ping, the master behind "The Matrix" trilogy, "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," and the "Kill Bill" films, "Unleashed" is a marvel of aggression.....Trouble is, those pictures were trainwrecks, overindulging in the worst American action film tendencies.....Wisely, Li reteams with Besson for "Unlea ...

At the time it seemed a silly conceit for an action film, something just outrageous enough to serve as a juicy hook....It would be easy to open the movie with footage of Tyson's stunning loss to Buster Douglas -.... ... Full Review

I would never call this a great film, but because of Morgan Freeman and Jet Li, "Unleashed" is passable entertainment. Newcomer Kerry Condon was effective as Dannys romantic interest and educator. Morgan Freeman was excellent as always. ... Full Review

Unleashed' or as it is also known, 'Danny the Dog' , is Jet Li's latest ass kicker, a movie with stellar fights scenes and bone crunching action from renown choreographer Yuen Wo Ping ( Matrix trilogy, Kung Fu Hustle ), a top notch support cast from Morgan Freeman, Bob Hoskins, and Kerry Condon (recently viewed in the TV opus 'Rome' ), and a superb score by Massive Attack and the RZA, all taughtly directed by 'The Transpoter' helmer Louis Leterrier from Luc Besson's mighty pen. ...
