    Not bad, but everything felt so rushed in the movie, not giving the audience time to care for the characters or the situations. Pathetic ending too.

    I would have gave the movie itself....MAYBE a 3.5 stars...and for some of the great quotes, I'd maybe push it up to 4....but the ending is SO terrible and pissed the HELL outta me, that this movie only gets 2.5 stars.

    What started out as a bad Rocky ended like a bad Raging Bull. While the last 1/3 was better than the first 2/3, and I appreciated the open ending, this was still a weak film.

    A very shallow, very cliche attempt to stake a claim in the celebrity rise-to-fame genre.

    <i>Undefeated</i> is a typical rags-to-riches tale about the protagonist finding fame and fortune but forgetting his roots in the process. In fact, everything about this film is cliche: the plot, the dialogue, the characters, the acting. There is nothing here that you haven't seen done ten times better elsewhere... EXCEPT for Vanessa Ferlito naked. Oh my goodness. Let that be the only reason you watch this film-- and it's a damn good reason, too. I'd also like to talk about the ending. Don't worry, I won't spoil it-- because there IS no ending. The film sets up a climactic moral dilemma for Vic Vargas (Leguizamo): should he throw the fight for more money, or legitimately fight his opponent to finally regain the respect of his friends and repair the relationships he has spent the entire film destroying? Just as he steps into the ring... roll credits. I don't know, maybe this would fly if the rest of the screenplay was written with even an ounce of originality and character depth; instead, this open-ended ending plays like a sad attempt at an artsy twist to a formula film.
