Movie Info

Alaska in mid-decade was a land of vast natural resources fought over by the largest companies in the world and governed by a corrupt and compromised political class. Rampant crony-capitalism stood in the way of the people of Alaska reaping the benefits of their natural birthright. Enter a galvanizing reformer, a small town mayor who took on her own political party and brought on "sudden and relentless reform." The Undefeated chronicles the rise from obscurity of one of America's new generation of leaders: Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska. Starting during the Exxon Valdez disaster of 1989 when Palin worked a commercial fishing boat she owned with her blue-collar husband, the film shows the struggles, the victories and the setbacks during a controversial career. -- (C) Official Site

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (10)

[A] fawning, oddly bloodless portrait.

September 3, 2011 | Full Review…

The movie may tempt even the most ardent conservatives to emulate their idol's tenure as governor and walk out halfway through.

July 20, 2011 | Full Review…

It's a straight hagiography, without nuance or ambiguity or the admission of opposing viewpoints, even those meant to be dismantled.

July 15, 2011 | Full Review…

This Sarah Palin hosanna is done in by the simple fact that its director needs to go back to film school.

July 15, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

A troop-rallying campaign infomercial as imagined by Michael Bay: hero-worshipping, crescendo-edited at a dizzying pace, thunderously repetitive and its own worst enemy as a two-hour, talking-points briefing.

July 14, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

It's difficult, if not impossible, to imagine anyone who isn't already a devoted Palinite seeking out or sitting through The Undefeated, which makes its distance from its subject all the more befuddling.

Audience Reviews for The Undefeated

I'm pretty sure she WAS defeated, then quit, then never even tried. Just in it for the money, just ask Todd.
