With the festival mere days away, Harry Knowles of Ain’t It Cool News had a special private screening to take a sneak peek at our selection, Unleashed starring Jet Li, Morgan Freeman, and Bob Hoskins. I can say that I agree with pretty much everything Harry writes about the film.
It’s fantastic, a really impressive piece of work by everyone involved. Tonally, it’s all over the place, but held together brilliantly by Jet Li’s terrific performance, Louis Letterier’s crafty direction, and a pulse-pounding score from Massive Attack & The RZA.
Anyway, get more information from Harry’s review… and for those coming to SXSW, get ready to get kicked into shape with this film’s special screening on Saturday night at the legendary, original Alamo Drafthouse downtown.
