Fresh: A nice, violent little film about the redemptive powers of art and love. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Unleashed is the kind of martial arts movie we would see if Tom Hanks could execute a flying spin kick. – Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: An intriguing little action thriller, a half-and-half story divided between sequences of vicious violence and quiet, wryly comic scenes of newfound domesticity. – David Germain, Houston Chronicle, Jul 28, 2008

Great movie!

Loved the movie! great action sequences! However, Apple Itunes needs to star making captioning and/or subtitles available. Almost every movie released over the last 10 years has them yet for some reason itunes refuses to include them in the downloads. Heads up Itunes, you are leaving yourself open to a class action lawsuit from the hearing impaired community.

New Leash on Life...

This was a pretty good movie. The acting was good and there was some great character devlopment. Too bad the storyline doesn't hold up. It's a good movie to watch while you are doing something else. It did not pull me away from my work as really good movies tend to do. If you are looking for some serious, "Alright! Take revenge on those bad guys!" type stuff, this movie will probably dissapoint. I would call it more of drama than A&A.
