Bart's Jaguar's number plate is invalid/impossible[edit]

Bart drives a white "Series 3 Jaguar Saloon." It has the number (registration) plate "SJ03 NEN," a number plate issued in 2003/2004. The series 3 Jaguar was discontinued in 1992. In the UK it is not possible to register a number plate to a vehicle if that number plate was issued after the vehicle was first-used/built. I.E. You can not put a number plate on a car if that number plate is younger than the car. If it is not possible to prove "date of fist use" the vehicle is issued with an incredibly rare number-plate starting with a "Q". IE "Q123 ABC"

Soundtrack[edit]

Hmm. I'm curious if the soundtrack was changed for the U.S. release. Amazon has a Danny the Dog soundtrack [1] by Massive Attack, but it makes no mention of RZA. —Mulad (talk) 05:42, May 20, 2005 (UTC)

  • Heh, and now I go and find the Unleashed soundtrack [2] a few seconds later. Two more tracks to that one. But I'm still curious if music in the movie itself was added/changed... —Mulad (talk) 05:45, May 20, 2005 (UTC)

Naming[edit]

Where in the world is this movie called Danny the Dog if its US/UK/Australia title is Unleashed? --Abdull 12:11, 26 November 2005 (UTC)[]

Exactly, I was wondering that. I once heard a Korean friend call this film "The Dog" (translated from Korean) but I have never heard it referred to as Danny the Dog...? --El Zilcho 15:02, 29 January 2006 (UTC)[]

I'm not sure about the other countries. But in the US it was released as Unleashed. I work at a theater, and i looked up our companies release list and it was released as Unleashed across the nation. At least for Cinemark Theaters.-

  • Yea if its different in other parts of the world they generally dont speak English. Dont use translated names use the name it was released under as in America where the bulk of english wikipedians are. Hm how do you move articles? Zach 05:18, 21 June 2006 (UTC).[]
  • I've moved the article..Zach 00:32, 28 June 2006 (UTC)[]

its UNLEASHED not UNLEASED. please fix. Catherine breillat 13:27, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

The French Wikipedia has it as Danny the Dog (and it is a French film, after all), IMDB mentions Hong Kong. IMDb implies that "Unleashed" was the title of the DVD in the UK as if DtD was the title used theatrically. Anyone from the UK recall ? -- Beardo 13:51, 24 September 2006 (UTC)[]

Its a French film?...That does make sense having seen it, it certainly does seem to be in the French style but...mostly not. Strange. But anyway. In the UK it was definatly always Unleashed.--Josquius 19:13, 1 October 2006 (UTC)[]

Luc Besson and Louis Leterrier are French, although it was shot in Scotland and most of the cast are English. IMDb calls it French / USA / UK. -- Beardo 22:37, 1 October 2006 (UTC)[]

Deletion[edit]

Yes yes i just mispelled it when i moved it, and when i tried to move to real article i found it to be a redirect to the page i moved it from DeleteZach 19:36, 29 June 2006 (UTC)[]

Requested move[edit]

In order to get this in the right place it seems we have to go through a formal move request Talk:Unleased (film) to Talk:Unleashed (film). -- Beardo 22:42, 1 October 2006 (UTC)[]

Philosophy[edit]

I don't know if anyone else thinks this, but the film seems to also be a vehicle for philosophy - namely that while Jet Li's character is fighting, he is caged and less than human, but when he is free, he can live up to his artistic potential and does not need to fight.

-- Sasuke Sarutobi 13:29, 5 January 2007 (UTC)[]

I agree!


Bruce Lee said the same thing 40 years ago. The way to win a fight is not to fight at all. Watch Enter the Dragon. It was a vehicle for Lee's Philosophy. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.174.83.232 (talk) 05:49, 3 October 2010 (UTC)[]

Business[edit]

So - did it make a profit or a loss ? -- Beardo 05:40, 2 February 2007 (UTC)[]

Along those lines, the page lists two different budgets for the film. Only one of them can be right. 69.149.155.56 05:58, 2 December 2007 (UTC)Will[]

The plot[edit]

copy and pasted from some other site. not very encyclopedic tone.

I agree. (Ghostexorcist 04:32, 11 July 2007 (UTC))[]
It's on my to-do list, however, if anyone would like to revise it, that would be fine with me. Blackngold29 (talk) 03:42, 29 February 2008 (UTC)[]

Fair use rationale for Image:Unleashed poster.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Unleashed poster.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Lethal Flowerpot of DooM[edit]

So, when in the movie is it stated that the flowerpot killed Bart? All we see is that he is knocked unconscious. I didn't know that the lethality rate of a flowerpot in the head was 100%, sounds more like wishful thinking to me. 200.121.140.185 01:45, 23 September 2007 (UTC)[]

I don't believe that it is stated that he is killed, I will remove it when I revise the plot (see "The Plot" above). Blackngold29 (talk) 03:44, 29 February 2008 (UTC)[]

Merger proposal[edit]

I propose that the soundtrack page Danny the Dog (soundtrack) be merged into this page. Because it is repetitive, enough information can be given here for adequate coverage of the album. Thank You. Blackngold29 (talk) 03:07, 20 March 2008 (UTC)[]

I support this proposal on the above grounds. Freikorp (talk) 02:56, 17 April 2010 (UTC)[]

Image copyright problem with Image:Massive Attack - Danny the Dog 2004.jpg[edit]

The image Image:Massive Attack - Danny the Dog 2004.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

Vandalism[edit]

I was hoping to watch this film and wanted a little information first. The page has been re-edited to someone's personal opinion of the film. Hope I've done this right. SpectorCorp (talk) 00:35, 27 February 2009 (UTC)[]

I've rolled-back the vandalism, thanks for spotting it. For future reference you can click on the "history" tab at the top of the page, then select the difference between several versions - I selected the last version not by the IP that had edited last. You'll be shown a "diff" (or "difference") between the two selected versions, and can then select "undo" to revert the changes. Hope that helps, and thanks again!

Genre[edit]

Isn't this an action/drama instead of action/thriller ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.176.133.83 (talk) 00:47, 3 February 2010 (UTC)[]

Last Song[edit]

I just watched this on TV and the only song in the credits was 'Baby Boy' and not the unreleased song not included on the album. This may have been different in the cinemas as many films have 2-3 songs now. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.182.188.114 (talk) 19:35, 5 February 2011 (UTC)[]

Multiple Personality[edit]

Something unmentioned that seems obvious to me is that Danny is a trauma induced multiple personality slave and the collar is a trigger to switch personalities. He begins to integrate his personalities as he remembers in a secure ad loving environment. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 46.65.56.137 (talk) 00:19, 16 December 2012 (UTC)[]
