I won't continue saying that Jet Li's performance was wonderful, since he can't act well in Hollywood movies overall. So the lessons of morality and scenes of emotion don't quite work, but the fight scenes help you throw that back out the window and enjoy yourself. The wise old black guy who always has all the answers, so he's Jet Li's saving grace in this. Among them, a story about a boy who invented a strange design and ended up in a fantastic parallel reality, where robots will test them on their new weapons. Good effort that could've been better, excluding the stylish direction. But despite that gripe and somewhat of a lack of action, the fight scenes were great, brutal and gritty, and provided some pretty great highlights amidst the rest of the film. The scenes with Li learning about the world with Kerry Condon.
Eventually, his former boss comes looking for him and things escalate. In another story a few men decided to behead the man and even invited for the profession of a priest. When Sam and Victoria are introduced to Danny it was difficult to invest in the three's emotional relationships. One day, they get into a car accident and he happens to stumble upon blind Morgan Free who takes him in and teaches him about the world. The short stories vary from very clever and interesting to incredibly stupid. Bob Hoskins is also good. All the bad guys are pretty cookie cutter but that isn't always a bad thing.
Luc Besson's screenplay wasn't the best thing either, but my point is that this is not what you think it is because of the title and the cover. User 1 Review: Jet Li plays an imprisoned fighter who does a gangster's dirty work once he takes his collar off. Use direct links to download or Watch Online. The cruel and personal human slavery is a horrible thing to speak of, and a very difficult thematic material to portray in a film effectively. There are some great little stories — B directed by and starring Julian Barratt, of The Might Boosh fame is funny and interesting and C makes a very good point in a very short space of time. Description: All the facts and phenomena in life are subject to a certain structure or algorithm.
The idea of both movies is that 26 different directors each take one letter of the alphabet, and make a short 4-5 minute death-themed story on it. .

An above average action flick with equal parts action and drama. User 2 Review: This is a solid,action packed yet somewhat cheesy later Jet Li entry. User 3 Review: Unleashed starts out on a high note with a lot of action and a seemingly dark and psychological story, but the moments when Danny tries to fit into normal society weren't that emotionally gripping. You can't go wrong with a Jet Li film despite how ridiculous the plot may be.
He's a deadly fighter, but has been treated like a dog and kept caged up and uneducated. More bad stories than good…. Bob Hoskins plays a scummy englishmen like no other and Morgan Freeman doe's what he does best. Reviews: More miss than hit, again. Less incredibly stupid stories than the first one, but not much more good ones either.
Some are clearly made just with shock value, and no narrative, in mind. The plot isn't original at all, neither are the fight scenes, but one thing is sure: this is not your typical pop-corn action film; it's a very complicated story, psychologically speaking, about master-slave relationship, decisions that assure us a better future no matter the consequences, and the loss of identity and taste towards the good and beautiful things of life. User 4 Review: This is more than a mindless, violent and typical action film, with Jet Li only kicking ass. The fight scenes are excellent as expected with Li. This has a more cohesive storyline than that late 90's fair. .
