Not really a good film, but there's definite curiosity value in this odd concoction.

a dog of a movie, better not unleashed on any discerning viewer.

Unfortunately, the fight scenes (and there are several) are very frontloaded.

An irritating excuse to glorify senseless slaughter!

Has a "been there, done that" feel, as if writer/co-producer Besson has returned to this concept one time too many.

Freeman is better than his role, and Hoskins is a powerful presence. Li almost pulls off a psychologically complex role. But in the end, Unleashed is a muddled film.

Para cada bom filme que escreve, produz ou dirige, Luc Besson realiza outras dez porcarias. Esta é uma delas (e nem mesmo as boas seqüências de luta podem salvar um roteiro absurdo, esquemático e com personagens unidimensionais).

A promising idea that never develops beyond that.
August 19, 2005
An incompatible marriage of film noir, Gothic fairytale and martial arts movie.

The premise is so absurd that one would have to play it slightly tongue-in-cheek for the film to be any fun at all, [but] director Louis Leterrier goes the opposite direction

Audiences may play dead when they realize just how silly and insipid Unleashed is unleashed from its nasty fight scenes.

They didn't use much imagination -- or paper -- on this script.

The film's apparent belief that it's more than a tarted-up action flick is even more ludicrous than the story.

It's the same stuff that as we always get where like the henchman come up to him one by one.

The film contains enough quiet, reflective moments for us to become aware how preposterous the central conceit is, and that keeps us at arm's length. For a movie that strives to be in-your-face, that's too far away.

A film that could use a little less conversation, a lot more action.

The movie would work better with fewer elements.

The movie doesn't make it, but there's enough going on to make it more arf than barf.

The Brit-gangster grit, punched up by fight choreographer Yuen Wo-ping's visceral action sequences, mixes awkwardly with the sappy sentimentality.
