Undisputed Reviews

April 3, 2017
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.
December 29, 2010
A forgettable prison boxing movie.
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 6, 2002
Hill looks to be going through the motions, beginning with the pale script.
August 30, 2002
Walter Hill's prison-boxing flick Undisputed could have been a great B, but it represents a failure of nerve.
August 29, 2002
A shrewd and splendidly volatile B movie structured around a highly original gambit of suspense.
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 clich.
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
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.
August 24, 2002
An average B-movie with no aspirations to be anything more.
August 23, 2002
Even by its own please-the-mob standards, this movie is lacking.
August 23, 2002
So gritty it'll get under your fingernails.
August 23, 2002
After a stretch of questionable projects like Last Man Standing and Supernova, Hill has rebounded with a boxing pic so purely pugilistic that nothing impinges on the main event.
August 23, 2002
This is the kind of movie that gets a quick release before real contenders arrive in September.
August 23, 2002
Amazingly lame.
August 23, 2002
For all of Hill's effort, Undisputed still seems routine, and its hold on the audience is casual.
August 23, 2002
A muscular, no-nonsense genre pic.
August 23, 2002
A terrific B movie -- in fact, the best in recent memory.
August 23, 2002
Coy but exhilarating, with really solid performances by Ving Rhames and Wesley Snipes.
August 23, 2002
Undisputed isn't exactly memorable, and as far as its prison setting goes, it has nothing on HBO's infinitely more brutal Oz. But as late-summer time killers go, you could do worse.
