Danny the Dog
Of course, it is always difficult to tell how a movie is going to be from the trailer but I have a good feeling about this one. Danny the Dog in the US as Unleashed which is a shitty name but there you go. The director is a Frenchman named Leterrier whose only other film credit was the underrated The Transporter. Many of the action sequences in that film were pretty competent.
Here's another trailer.
Here's a non-trailer; more of a sequence really that we can only hope was cut or edited.
Ripped from IMDB:
"This is the story of Danny(Li), a slave who has lived his whole life without any sort of normal human education, with the mind and personality of a young child, with only one lesson learned: how to fight. Treated like a dog by his owner/boss, Bart(Hoskins) which includes having to wear a collar, Danny has been raised to be a lethal fighting machine who fights in illegal gladiator-style fight clubs, where he earns lots of money for Bart as the undisputed champion. After a car accident that lands Bart in a coma, however, Danny meets a kind elderly blind piano tuner(Freeman) on the run because he knows secrets some bad guys don't want known, who uses music to teach Danny some things about the world and about being human..."
