September 6, 2002
Hill looks to be going through the motions, beginning with the pale script.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 4, 2002
Gives us the option of choosing to root for either a vicious, unrepentant murderer or a vicious, unrepentant rapist.
September 1, 2002
Unbearable.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 30, 2002
Dispiriting and obvious. ...a potentially complex movie drained of all complexity, and a drama drained of all consequence.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
August 30, 2002
Walter Hill's prison-boxing flick Undisputed could have been a great B, but it represents a failure of nerve.
August 30, 2002
Undisputed allows its social commentary to play out through the confident rhythms of a traditional fight picture. It's the fiercest political sneak attack of 2002.

August 29, 2002
A limp showcase of machismo so passé as to embarrass your average Australopithecus.
August 29, 2002
A shrewd and splendidly volatile B movie structured around a highly original gambit of suspense.

August 28, 2002
It would not be unfair to say that Undisputed glamorizes prison and boxing, two of the last things I'd want anyone to aspire to.

August 28, 2002
Like Undisputed itself, Snipes' bravura turn is a throwback to no-frills old-school macho in the Eastwood-McQueen mold.
August 27, 2002
If Hill isn't quite his generation's Don Siegel (or Robert Aldrich), it's because there's no discernible feeling beneath the chest hair; it's all bluster and cliché.
August 27, 2002
I've got nobody to root for ... in a movie like this I want to root for one of the boxers in the ring.
August 25, 2002
A simple tale, well told.

August 25, 2002
It's as raw and action-packed an experience as a ringside seat at a tough-man contest.
Full Review| Original Score: 3/4
August 25, 2002
Walter Hill's pulpy, stylized boxing melodrama Undisputed nearly overcomes its questionable in-the-ring match-up with solid fight choreography and gritty prison authenticity.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
August 25, 2002
Rhames is a tightly harnessed bundle of fury, Snipes a restrained champion who seems to have made inner peace with the crime of passion that sent him away for life, and Falk a riveting delight.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 25, 2002
Undisputed, in my estimation, is one opponent that's definitely down for the count.

August 24, 2002
Walter Hill continues doing what he does best, knocking out a visceral prison melodrama with a show-stealing role from Peter Falk.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
August 24, 2002
An average B-movie with no aspirations to be anything more.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 23, 2002
It isn't Raging Bull, but at least it could give Play it to the Bone a knockout in five.
