Undisputed III: Redemption is a pleasant surprise that delivers exactly what you'd want - kick-ass fighting and a lot of action.
As dull as the story may be, the fighting scenes are admittedly impressive.
For what it is, a low-budget, direct-to-video action flick, Undisputed III works well enough.
An exhilarating and spectacular action-packed thrill-machine with tons of non-stop, heart-pounding excitement and pulse-pounding fight sequences from start to finish. This film is an explosive winner. A sharp, well-crafted and thrilling action flick. It puts the wow back in action movies and truly showing that you can be blown away. The fight scenes are brutal, crushing and eye-popping. It dose not fail to satisfy one bit and leaves you wanting more. It's jaw-dropping, bone-crushing, mind-blowing and utterly breathtaking. A powerful action movie that makes you feel the force after every hit all the way to the end. Scott Adkins is terrific, he's truly the king of cool in this film and is for sure going to be one of the screens best and most compelling action heroes. This is the best film in the series yet. I loved it. Martial arts films don't get better than this.
Third and final outing? again we are back to see Boyka this time rise from the ashes and become a world class fighter again as he turns from being the baddie fighter in the second film to the hero in this third. The story follows on from the second with Boyka having a badly damaged leg after losing his fight to Chambers, from there on we get another well run plot of over coming an injury to join in a tournament against other world fighters to get freedom, think 'Bloodsport' or 'Street Fighter' or any other fighting tournament flick, they're all the same really.
Again I was surprised with this film as I expected a real waste of film but again this is actually a pretty decent fight flick with again some fantastic fight sequences. Yes all the other fighters are your typical cliched types from various countries, one fighter from Brazil being a complete copy of 'Eddie Gordo' from 'Tekken' right down to the outfit, the only difference with this film is all the fighters can actually do the kind of super moves you see in 'Tekken'. Some of the moves and gymnastic abilities on show are amazing and the best I've seen in a film, yes the acting is so so and the plot is predictable but a real effort has been made with these two sequels to make the fights look bloody good and that they do.
All the cast is persent from the second film so continuity is spot on which is really nice, same with location too and all the fighters look the part and as said move damn well, if you like 'beat em up' films that hark back to the days of JCVD then you really can't go wrong here, this film series is a well made little franchise and a fourth film would actually be pretty cool.
Most direct-to-DVD films are cash-ins on popular franchises. Undisputed wasn't a very popular or, for that matter, a very exciting movie. However, cinematic miracles can occur and this third installment is a major improvement and a satisfyingly fierce testosterone cocktail. Adkins is a perfectly stoic combatant and the mixed martial arts scenes are brutally pulse-pounding. The friendship between Russian Adkins and the loquacious American Mykel Shannon Jenkins is a great culture-clash subplot. No jittery camera, no close-up angles, no professional stuntmen, the kinetic action is shot in panoramic wide lens with stupendous choreography and we can ascertain precisely we is winning and how.
Scott Adkins kicks butt with one knee as he is a pretty good actor and a damn good entertainer. He goes from being the partial pure fighting villain in the second to the star of the third. All the fight sequences are well made. The villain is a good one who looks to tower over Boyka. Thumbs up as it is good for action.
The team that worked on this film did a great job once more redeeming a lost soul; classic villain becomes hero.
