    Unleashed stars Jet Li as a man raised as an attack dog (a martial artist dog) by a mobster, who escapes, is adopted by a music-loving family, and must eventually save them from his evil "uncle" who wants him to fight for money again. You know, classic kung fu stuff. Obviously, the fight scenes are stand-outs, but there aren't that many of them, with the bulk of the second act spent with Morgan Freeman and his adopted daughter as Jet's character learns to be human and do human things, like eat ice cream and love. If it sounds maudlin and trite, well, a little, but it's still watchable. Penned by Luc Besson, the film does seem to give itself airs, as if it were "about something" greater than its featured action. It carries itself with a certain self-importance that sometimes feels trite. The non-action highlight? How Bob Hoskins' decadent mob boss is abused in amusing and recurring ways. 5 years ago

    Started all action packed and ended all action packed with a kind of mellow soft middle. I enjoyed it but it wasn't what I expected after seeing the cover or reading the blurb on the back. A really different story line, very original! 8 years 8 months ago

    Somehow I never imagined I'd see a movie with Jet Li AND Morgan Freeman. I thought it was refreshing and enjoyable. 9 years ago
