2005
Rating:
R
Unleashed is an action-packed martial arts film that stars Jet Li. He plays Danny, who is a young specialist in martial arts and was raised like a dog by his owner Bart (Bob Hoskins). Bart is a gangster and a collector and has raised Danny since a young age. He raised him like a dog so that Danny could kill for him if he needed to. When Bart lets Danny off of his collar, Danny behaves just like an animal. He hunts and kills people on orders from Bart. After a tragic accident Danny is wounded and is taken in by a piano tuner Sam (Morgan Freeman) and his stepdaughter Victoria (Kerry Condon). They welcome Danny into their family and treat him as an equal. Through their love and care Danny starts to be humanized and he is drawn to the pianos that Sam tunes. He learns to live like a normal human being but his past still haunts him often in his dreams.moreless
