Normally, amazing fighting scenes are what you expect from Jet Li’s movies. That also what I had mind when I inserted Unleashed into my DVD player. But I was wrong. This European-produced movie offered a good and strong (and believable) story, and most important is that it was not packed with unnecessary fights (except perhaps one in the pool, but that’s acceptable considering this is Jet Li’s). The story was a bit slow and probably disappoint those who favor thriller, but all in all it is very much enjoyable. The performance of Morgan Freeman playing a fatherly figure was fairly decent as well.
Excluding his Chinese movies, in my opinion until now this is the best from Jet Li.
