Entertainment Weekly
Bounding out of the gate like a greyhound, Unleashed needs only its first 30 seconds or so to elevate itself well above the average action potboiler.
80
Film Threat
One of the best Sunday Afternoon action flicks since the glory days of Schwarzenegger.
80
L.A. Weekly
The most enjoyable film Besson has had his name on in eons.
70
The infinitely silly, unconscionably entertaining action film Unleashed earns most of its juice from the martial-arts star Jet Li.
63
Li is action poetry in motion. Damn them for spoiling our popcorn fun with salty tear-jerking.
50
Chicago Tribune
Unleashed is like an old dog: No new tricks.
50
Freeman and Hoskins lend the film a level of artistry it doesn't really deserve. Unleashed has a vivid concept, but savagery and sentimentality make strange costars.
40
Includes a few scenes of impressively choreographed mayhem, but they're all but buried in Freeman and Condon's mystical grandpa and weirdo teeny bopper routines.
25
Luc Besson's screenplay is dumb, but has just enough weird touches to give occasional glimmers of interest.
10
Village Voice
Cloying dreck.
