    film (from speaking to people who have seen it) is brilliant - apparantly its been released pretty much everywhere other than the Uk and is said to be a real good film

    not sure on reasons of it not being in cinemas here yet but doubt you have wasted your money

    MInes been despatched and I should get it next week.
    It's got Jet Li in it so I wouldn't think it's gonna be bad but I'll hold judgement till I've seen it ;) I haven't seen Morgan freeman in a bad film yet (Jet Li for that matter). (notice it got 7.3/10 on imdb and is a fresh 66% over at rottentomatoes).
    It's meant to have great martial arts choreography which is why I usually watch his films so I'm pretty sure I'll be happy with my purchase.

    Looks to be one of the last movies you'll be able to see Jet Li in too as he's giving up on the martial arts film scene apparently. :(

    There was an advert for this at my local Odeon a month or so ago. It gave me the impression it was getting a cinema release.

    watched it this afternoon and thought it was pretty good on the hole...

    bob hoskins is great in it :)

    one thing that made me laugh was that morgan freeman said that the SPAR shop was the best supermarket in Glasgow :rotfl: clearly never been to peckhams :)

    good film, nothing special, soundtracks good. fair use of the surrounds and the surround centre, story rather predictable, and I found the picture quite dark inplaces and pic quality just ok rather than brilliant, nice package though and cheap also only 11.99....cant be bad

    Just got this through so I shall watch it later. Interesting that they have retitled it in the UK though. I first saw a trailer of this in my local Odeon a few months ago and it was called "Danny the Dog" and just saw an ad on the TV and it's now called "Unleashed". I personally think the first title was much better.

    I thought this was pretty good. The fight sequences were very well choreographed(sp) especially the one in the enclosed toilet where there wasn't enough room to swing a cat.
    Had a UK feel to it too which made a nice change and Bob hoskins played his part well (even though he could probably play it with his eyes closed).
    Jet Li has been in better films imo but the fights in this are less fantastical and more gritty/real with no obvious wire work.
    Definately one to watch if you a Jet Li fan.

    On another note I have just watched my bittersweet life which is exceptional though very violent. It's even getting close to Old boy standard imo so watch it now! :lease:

    Just had Rikidozan pop through my letterbox anyone seen this? Is it any good?

    A brill film and i hope it does well worldwide in the box office money as it was above average action flick.
    Also great to have it in scotland and a bit gutted that i wished i got to glasgow when they filmed it to see jet in the flesh.

    Please BOB do another gangster flick and show these wanabes how to the big boss and the main man.

    Just because it doesnt come out in the cinema here first doesnt mean its a bad film, look at Hero and House of Flying Daggers, CDWow had R3 releases of them available before they hit the cinema here and they turned out to be ok :D
