Drawing on torn-from-the-headlines events and B-movie history, Hill and his co-writer, David Giler, fill out their premise with hardboiled irony and gusto.

A forgettable prison boxing movie.

It's dead in the water before the climax.
May 26, 2006
[A] rock-hard, streamlined "B" movie.
March 5, 2006
A solid, efficient B movie that holds the screen masterfully for an all-too-brief 90 minutes.

As with any boxing movie or fight card, the main event doesn't come until the very end, and like too many pay-per-view packages the undercard is underwhelming.

We have no idea where these characters have been, so we don't care where they're going.
| Original Score: 1/4
April 6, 2004
Too reliant on its already-dated "topicality" and listlessly coasting on a laundry list of prisonyard plot points.

...a B picture in an era that doesn't really allow for them.

A história se desenvolve de forma curiosa, mas a luta final deixa a desejar.

In a better movie, we wouldn't feel compelled to choose which fighter to root for.

"Undisputed" could have been compelling, but it ultimately plays out as a standard prison action movie.

At 90 minutes this movie is short, but it feels much longer.
December 16, 2002
Undisputed barely rises above the ordinary, but it does combine action, prisons, and boxing, boasts a good cast, and throws in some undisguised sociopolitical commentary.

Can best be described as Animal House with bars, a fantasy musical maximum security joint.

Writer/director Walter Hill is in his hypermasculine element here, once again able to inject some real vitality and even art into a pulpy concept that, in many other hands would be completely forgettable.
September 26, 2002
With flashbulb editing as cover for the absence of narrative continuity, Undisputed is nearly incoherent, an excuse to get to the closing bout ... by which time it's impossible to care who wins.
September 9, 2002
To be sure, this is a very thin premise, but it's remarkable how efficiently Hill layers it with suggestion and meaning.

Undisputed is the kind of flick that could put hair on your chest and a swagger in your stride, assuming you don't actually drown in the testosterone that pours off the screen like the sweat flying from Ving Rhames's bald head.

[Hill] stretches credulity to the breaking point is in asking us to believe that there are actually two pro athletes in America who would have to stay in prison long enough that the arrangements for such a fight could be made.
