Armed with a license to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007 and must defeat a weapons dealer in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, but things are not what they seem.
A drama based on an ancient Chinese proverb that breaks life down into four emotional cornerstones: happiness, pleasure, sorrow and love. A businessman bets his life on a horse race; a gangster sees the future; a pop star falls prey to a crime boss; a doctor must save the love of his life.

Morgan Freeman's character Sam was at first not blind at all. After hearing from a piano school for the blind (with a very high reputation, and where the scholars developed their hearing), Freeman had the idea of making his character blind because like this it is easier for Sam to "see" the child in Jet Li's character, and not the brutal killer.

So you have watched jet Li grow in the American cinema. He bar far is the next Bruce lee for the new millennium. with his insane momentum and demand for attention on the screen he is the man to watch right now. far surpassing the slap stick antics of Jackie Chan and taking his own acting career to a whole new level, unleashed finally answers the question... can jet Li act? the answer is yes! not having very man lines in the film actually proved to be a strong point for Li. he played a very young and innocent confused man who was severely mistreated by a horribly acted bob hoskins. hoskins was a huge down for the film. his long annoying dialogue bothered me, every time he opened his mouth you new some stupid speech was about to spill out. but the action was also jaw dropping. this is probably the most fierce and hard-hitting action fights i have seen. the first five minutes alone will re-define American kung-fu. the filming and entire layout of the film is very different, even the opening credits are weird. but rogue pictures is building a reputation for making "different" movies. it was another perfect luc besson film. a lot of transporter like action scenes and a very unusual appearance of Morgan freeman in the film make this absolutely worth watching.
