Harry Knowles Reviews "Unleashed"

by | March 8, 2005 | Comments

Ain’t It Cool News‘ Harry Knowles has seen and reviewed Jet Li’s upcoming actioner, "Unleashed." The movie stars Jet Li, Morgan Freeman, and Bob Hoskins and is about a man named Danny (Li) who’s been raised, since early boyhood, like an animal by his malevolent guardian, Bart (Hoskins). Danny regains his humanity when he meets a blind music tuner (Freeman). In his review, Knowles says "Unleashed" is "hands down the best English Language Jet Li movie" and "is the best non-period film he’s been in." The violence, while coming "in sections," is "incredibly intense" and "realistic." However, because Li, Freeman, and Kerry Condon are so "charismatic together," he didn’t miss the mayhem when it’s not there. Bob Hoskins is "a force of nature" in this movie as well, and he pulls off his character with "gritty panache."
