“Unchained”: Underground fights and captive women

"Unchained": Underground fights and captive women

If we don’t count voice actors, I think the ranking of more prolific active Hollywood performers is led by James Hong (Blade Runner (1982), Big Trouble in Little China (1986)), Danny Trejo (From Dusk Till Dawn (1996), Machete (2010)), and, in the undisputed first place, Eric Roberts. His case is a very curious case because he went from a very promising career start being nominated for a Golden Globe for King of the Gypsies (1978), and an Oscar nomination for Runaway Train (1985), to appear every year in tens and tens of low-budget straight-to-video films. Still, in the meantime, he has time to take supporting roles in some of the most notorious movies of the last decades, like The Dark Knight (2008), The Expendables (2010), and Inherent Vice (2014).

One of the last titles he’s participated in is action-thriller Unchained (2021). The movie follows an idealistic woman who is kidnapped and forced to compete in an underground fight ring. Every night is a fight for her life as she plans to overthrow her captors and save the lives of many others doomed to the same endless cycle.

Unchained (2021) is the new work for filmmaker Raphaello, known for other low-budget horror movies like The Curse of Salem (2010) and Rogue Planet Gamma (2011). He has also been the author of the screenplay, together with John Bryan and Ilia Constantine.

Together with Eric Roberts, Mair Mulroney, Taya Valkyrie, Micke Spreitz, Rock Riddle, Stan Divranos, April Clark, Janna Lowell, Val Victa, and Roni Weissman also star.

Unchained (2021) was released in March via Leomark Studios. Here you can watch its trailer.
