The Undefeated Reviews

September 3, 2011
[A] fawning, oddly bloodless portrait.
July 20, 2011
The movie may tempt even the most ardent conservatives to emulate their idol's tenure as governor and walk out halfway through.
July 15, 2011
It's a straight hagiography, without nuance or ambiguity or the admission of opposing viewpoints, even those meant to be dismantled.
July 15, 2011
This Sarah Palin hosanna is done in by the simple fact that its director needs to go back to film school.

July 14, 2011
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.

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.

In one stump speech shown near the end of The Undefeated, Palin exclaims brightly, "There's nothing wrong in America a good ol'-fashioned election can't fix!" That's about as honest as this piece of propaganda.
July 11, 2011
The Undefeated flatlines after an hour of empty back-patting and no dramatic edge. Bannon actively avoids any of Palin's setbacks, downplaying the entire 2008 presidential campaign to a few minutes of screen time.

Once you realize the film is just going to be a string of encomiums against a backdrop of frantically edited archival material... it's clear that no meaningful analysis of the woman's career or political agenda will be forthcoming

Political junkies eager to know more about Palin's vice-presidential campaign are similarly out of luck.
