Therefore anyone with hopes of this movie being a showcase of Jet Li's skills may be disappointed.




yes but it wasn't just that. the storyline puts you to sleep. I watched it on a plane, where I could give it my full attention, and it put me to sleep! it was awful. shame to see morgan freeman lower himself too.

I haven't seen the movie yet but I watched an interview with Jet Li who said that the film didn't contain well executed MA techniques for a reason. As his character is animal like he wanted to fight as such. Therefore anyone with hopes of this movie being a showcase of Jet Li's skills may be disappointed.




yeah i think you would have to watch once a time in china or fist of legend to see his skills. he needs to go back to making movies such as those but with the quality of hero behind it.

bump that. hero showed li is a great actor as well as MAist. fist of legend (isn't that the same flick as "the legend of fong sai yuk?) is equally as good a story but didn't have the budget or know how of his modern films. it's too bad horrible american directors keep pulling li into their crappy action movies. that said though, danny the dog is better than the last however many li films (excluding hero of course)

It's not a good film, but I thought the fight scenes were excellent - raw, real, violent. Too many movie fights in the past few years have either had the camera too close to the action with too many cuts, so you can't see what's going on, or else too far away with too few cuts, which takes away the chaos. This movie struck the right balance and the fights in it are just damn cool.
The soundrack by Massive Attack was also superb. It was released quite some time ago under the movie's working title: Danny The Dog. Why they ended up calling it 'Unleashed' is beyond me; 'Danny The Dog' is clearly a superior title.

It's still called Danny the Dog in Asia. "Unleashed" is probably an American PR person's idea to make the film sound gritty and exciting. its like the guy with the deep voice who narrates every trailer of every film you see in the cinema. its to make the film sound like you wanna see it.

all bull 5417 if you ask me.

oh wait, scratch that - i got it wrong.
fist of legend is a remake of the bruce lee film "fist of fury". it's honestly a better version IMO, although i love Lee as much as anyone.
"the legend of fong sai yuk" was renamed simply "the legend" recently when it came back into print. it takes place in the fuedal era and has a very elaborate plot for a kung fu movie. there are two sequels to it that are great too. i highly recommend it for jet li fans!!

Really you have to be kidding yourself




Agreed. it really was a terrible film. what happened to the jet li from films like Fist of Legend and Once Upon A Time In China?
