I'm not usually a Wesley Snipes fan but here his zen-like demeanor is put to good use as the underdog in a match between the world champeen and the local hero in a maximum security prison. This film feels like an example of the old adage that a small budget often results in greater creativity. Just feels like some old pros f***ing around with a genre film, having a good time, and the thing is quite fun so long as you're comfortable with some updated cinematic cliches, a weird Peter Falk and you're not the type who always needs a message in their cinema. Very good fight scenes.
An excellent boxing movie. (by gejonz)
This movie totally rocked. I don't know what you naysayers are talking about. The action was every bit as good and as believable as the boxing action sequences in the Rocky series and I own them all, with the exception of the horrible V . The story line flows and the scenes between the action parts are more than just the typical filler used for breaks in the action, something usually seen with a lot of action movies. The sub-plots involving Wesley Snipes and Ving Rhames' characters highlight just how unfortunate circumstances have sent them both to prison. Although, one tends to be <more>
more sympathetic to the circumstances surrounding Snipes'character because anyone can imagine themselves reacting to his situation in a similar if not exact manner. Despite this, it is soon evident that the 2 men's fortunes will be ultimately very different.
I missed this film in the theaters,and man;am I EVER SORRY that I did!! It has an EXCELLENT cast of characters,a well developed story and plot. Along with plenty of action. If you're in to fight/boxing movies,I HIGHLY suggest you check this one out!! It easily rivals the "Rocky" movies;and is easily on par with "Rocky IV" for hero vs villain contrast.The interaction between the characters is supreme. To see Wesley Snipes play opposite Ving Rhames is not that big a stretch. But,to see them on the screen with such a great actor a Peter Faulk is mind grabbing. Fisher <more>
Stevens,and John Seda playing side men to Snipes and Faulk respectively was wonderful. The ending is something to leave you feeling in awe.
A sharp and hard-hitting boxing drama. (by mhasheider)
Seems like an eternity since director Walter Hill "48 HRS.", "Streets of Fire", "Southern Comfort" made a really good movie and his latest offering "Undisputed" shows that Hill still has the skill to create a clever movie."Undisputed" is the second movie about boxing that Hill has done, the first being his feature debut "Hard Times" that starred Charles Bronson and the late James Coburn in the mid-seventies.The tale takes place at an isolated Arizona maximum security prison where a former heavyweight boxing champ Rhames is sent <more>
to serve a sentence for rape meets a counterpart Snipes who is an undefeated champ in the prison ranks and the opportunity to have the two fighters face each other in a bout arranged by a former mobster Peter Falk who still has mob connections outside the prison and a devoted fan of the sport.And the result is a sharp and hard-hitting boxing drama with the fight being the center piece. Snipes and Rhames are terrific here and the supporting performances are just as good especially Michael Rooker, Wes Studi, and Falk, too."Undisputed" may not top "Rocky" or "Raging Bull" in being the best movie about the sport, but it deserves some mention.
" Boxing is an Art. Two men fight, only one can win, it's a thing of beauty " (by thinker1691)
In the world of rank boxing, there are many notable fights which can be measured on one hand. But in the world of Cinamatic boxing there are dozens which have been made into Hollywood legends. In this release, called " Undisputed " the result was the creation of a boxing Classic. It is the story of the Heavyweight Champion of the World, George 'Iceman' Chambers Ving Rhames who has been arrested, convicted and sentenced to prison. Undefeated on the outside world, Chambers learns that at Sweetwater Prison, another man shares that distinguished title. That individual is <more>
Monroe Hutchen Wesley Snipes who hold the record of never having lost a boxing match. However, even though a fight between these two athletes is inevitable, the Warden moves to quash the event. However, Mendy Ripstein a Mafia gangster Peter Falk from the old days steps in, uses his considerable influence and the special match is back on. The entire confrontation is seen by officials as a potential explosion, the Captain of the guard, A.J.Mercker Michael Rooker believes he can control over 700 riotous inmates and one memorable fight to the finish. Jon Seda, Wes Studi, and Fisher Stevens as James 'Ratbag' Kroycek, add to the dramatic intensity and over all excitement which is the main-stay of this incredible film. With top notch acting and believability of the superior actors, especially when Rhames and Snipes are equally matched the result is one cage fight away from memorable entertainment. ****
The Ice Man Cometh in "Undisputed" ***1/2 (by edwagreen)
Not only is this a prison picture centered around boxing in jail, it also tells us the outside influences of corruption at all levels permeating through the prison walls.As Mendy Ripstein, the late Peter Falk steals the show as the man who arranges a match between prison champ Wesley Snipes and the heavy weight champ, Ving Rhames, incarcerated on rape conviction charges.We're basically dealing with two fighters with huge egos. They immediately take an aversion towards each other,and you know that the both of them shall eventually come to blows anyway.One of the fighters refuses to throw <more>
the fight and Rhames sees this as an opportunity by mobster Ripstein to get him out of jail earlier by the connections he has despite the fact that he has been incarcerated for such a long time.Yes, the ultimate bout finally does take place. Let me say that both men come up winners in this satisfying ending to a very interesting story.
Director Walter Hill's "Undisputed" is a great guy's movie. It's a fight movie set in Sweetwater Prison in the Mohavje Desert, starring tough guys Wesley Snipes and Ving Rhames. What distinguishes this guy's movie are a couple things: the expert and lean direction of Hill, the crisp and intelligent script by David Giler and Hill, and one of the best boxing fight scenes ever done in the movies.Ving Rhames plays former undisputed Heavyweight Champion James "Ice Man" Chambers, convicted of rape and stripped of his title and sentenced to serve his time in <more>
Sweetwater. While there he learns that Monroe Hutchen Wesley Snipes is the "undisputed" champ at Sweetwater, and he has been undefeated champion for ten years. For the Ice Man, there can be only one champion, and that would be himself. It is predictable that the two will fight at the end, and this is arranged by mobster inmate Mendy Ripstein a very good Peter Falk . What is not predicable is that Giler and Hill make both Ice Man and Monroe admirable and fascinating characters. You have to credit Rhames and Snipes. Rhames takes what could have been a Mike Tyson caricature, and transformed him into a complex and empathic character. His Ice Man is vicious, crude, arrogant, but also both smart and articulate. Credit Rhames on several occasions for scaring us with the ruthlessness of his Ice Man, and for also surprising us with his understanding of his stature in life as a Heavyweight champion. Ice Man is definitely the more showy character. Snipes underplays it right as Monroe, a great foil to the Ice Man. Snipes's Monroe is not afraid. Monroe knows that "Any fighter can be beat on a given day...", and the game is how long you stay on top and be the best. Monroe is matter of fact, and always in control-- the last time he wasn't got him in prison. Ice and Monroe are both convicts that operate by a code of honor, and that makes all the difference in the movie. It's all about standing your ground, and whoever wins, wins. "Undisputed" also is an homage to boxing and it's history, because ultimately it is about two men seeing who is better on that particular day. There is something pure and whole about that, which is both appreciated and respected.The final boxing match is awesome. Snipes is an accomplished martial artist and he trained with Emmanuel Stewart. Snipes looks amazing as a boxer-- body movement and combinations. Rhames also looks very impressive and fearsome. It's a 15 minute fight in a 90 minute movie. Walter Hill is the Man."Undisputed" is a no nonsense boxing movie that entertains and makes us think. And that is not bad for a very unpretentious movie.
This movie was a pleasant surprise.I say this because like some of you, I sometimes like to see what my fellow IMDb reviewers have to say about a movie before I check it out. Most of the reviews I saw for Undisputed seemed middling and that put me off for a good while. Recently I decided- "What the hey! I'll check it out anyway!" Am I glad I did because I enjoyed it immensely. Just goes to show that IMDb reviewers are not infallible, yours truly included. This was a kind of David and Goliath movie behind bars: This big arrogant heavyweight champion gets sent to prison for rape <more>
Sound familiar? . In prison, he has no respect for anyone and let's them know it. This includes the prison champion. Toward the end of the movie they eventually square off as we know they would and should .Folks, this movie was "tight". By that I mean there was never any slack in my interest even though there were only a few skirmishes until the big finale. Interestingly, Wesley Snipes's character was surprisingly restrained unusual, I think and did not seem that visible. This worked very well for him and the movie in general. We all know he plays cocky very well but this time that role and the spotlight went to Ving Rhames as the heavyweight sent to the slammer for rape. No doubt about it, Ving was intimidating. Like a horror movie, he made me cringe a couple of times and I was safely in my house! Everything worked for me; even the edgy, hardcore rap music in the background of some of the scenes I'm generally not a big fan of rap music folks, so that's saying something! . Real television news and sports personalities were used which gave credibility to an incredible situation; by the start of the big fight, criminals -from both inside and out- were running the prison. I had to laugh. This is the fun of movies: entertaining you and making you believe in the improbable. The fight commentator was great. I don't know if he was an actor playing one or if he really was one. That's how good he was. The big fight was filmed expertly showing the action from inside, outside, and above the arena a large cage . The camera person did not miss a beat. The action itself was intelligently choreographed reminded me a bit of the last Rocky movie so that it was believable and you couldn't tell what was going to happen. I'll let you in on a secret: this is one of the best and most realistic movie-boxing matches ever put on film! You almost believe that the fight-coordinator s took it all from a real boxing match. -And who knows? -Like the idea for Ving's character, maybe they did. I sure as hell felt like I was at one despite the prison setting. Whatever you might think of the rest of the movie, the boxing match at the end makes it all worth it and is not to be missed!!! Love, Boloxxxi.
A taut and absorbing prison boxing winner (by Woodyanders)
Arrogant, brutish, but smart and formidable heavyweight boxing champion George "Iceman" Chambers superbly played with swaggering brio by Ving Rhames gets sent to prison on a rape charge. While in jail Chambers encounters modest, yet agile and fearsome reigning inmate champ Monroe Hutchen a nicely understated performance by Wesley Snipes . Wily mobster Emmanuel "Mendy" Ripstein an excellent portrayal by Peter Falk sets it up so Chambers and Hutchen can find out who's really the best in a major high stakes fight. Director Walter Hill, who also co-wrote the lean, <more>
compelling, and intelligent script with David Giler, brings a tremendous amount of flashy style and invigorating burning energy to the absorbing narrative: the brisk pace rarely lets up for a minute, there's no filler to speak of, the tone is appropriately hard and no-nonsense, and the big match with Rhames' savage strength pitted against Snipes' lithe speed is extremely fierce, gripping, and exciting. Moreover, there's a welcome and refreshing moral complexity to the neatly contrasting main characters: Although a convicted murderer, Hutchen's low-key and reserved philosophical nature makes him likable while Chambers' raging ego and cockiness ensures that he's hateful and unappealing throughout. The first-rate supporting cast helps a lot: Michael Rooker as sympathetic head guard A.J. Rooker, Wes Studi as Chambers' obsequious cellmate Mingo Pace, Jon Seda as Ripstein's loyal caretaker Jesus "Chay" Campos, Fisher Stevens as the weaselly James "Ratbag" Kroycek, and Dayton Callie as Chambers' cagey manager Yank Lewis. Rhames and Snipes, both of whom are in exceptional ripped shape, make for thoroughly plausible fighters. Lloyd Ahern II's glossy cinematography, Stanley Clarke's moody score, and the rousing rap soundtrack are all up to par. Well worth seeing.
