Wow, we are getting close to the end of the alphabet!  Keep reading to find out what story the our final vowel gets to represent today!


Hello, it's Jet Li!  Also known as Danny the Dog, this movie is one of my favorite with Li.  The story is of a man who was taken as a child, raised to be a guard dog (he sleeps in a cage, and he is lethal in martial arts) for a mobster.  But then, his keeper dies (or so it appears), and Danny is free.  Only he has no idea how to really care for himself, he doesn't communicate much, and now he's on his own.  Talk about the ultimate vulnerable guy!  (Don't forget, he's also lethal, which is such a fascinating combination.)  Enter an old man (played by Morgan Freeman) and his daughter, who take Danny in. 

But, of course, the mobster isn't dead, and he wants his pet back. 

This one has lots of action, but also a lot of heart.  And Jet Li is amazing as the fragile yet deadly Danny. 

Come back tomorrow to find out what story captures V!
