Surly Curmudgeon

   The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.

    Far better than Episode III, I found Unleashed to be a great movie about Christian love. It was very moving to see Danny (Jet Li) progress from a place of rage and pain to discovery of his humanity and having a desire to live in loving relationships with others. Sam (Morgan Freeman) and Victoria (Kerry Condon) modeled a Christian approach to loving others -- especially those who are troubled -- in a way that I found heartfelt and inspiring. On top of all that, the action sequences were top-notch and really highlighted Jet Li's acrobatic skills. Save the 8 bucks on Episode III (wait for the DVD), and see Unleashed instead. You won't be sorry you did.
