Synopsis

Double bill of Jet Li films. Fearless (2006) is a martial arts action film starring Li as Chinese martial artist Huo Yuan Jia, who founded and developed the prestigious Jin Wu Sports Federation in the late nineteenth century. Rising to the top of the martial arts world from a deprived background, Huo Yuan Jia fought for the honour of his country and for the spirit of martial arts. Unleashed (2005) is a slightly off-beat martial arts thriller. Danny (Li) is a slave who has been raised like a dog by the sinister Bart (Bob Hoskins), who keeps him chained up and only unleashes him to use his martial arts skills in illegal underground pit fights. When Bart is injured in an accident, Danny is able to escape from his hellish existence, and goes on the run in a world which he can barely comprehend. Then he meets kindly piano tuner Sam (Morgan Freeman), who begins to teach him about music and what it means to be human. But Danny's new freedom doesn't last for long, as Bart recovers and sets out to regain his property.
