Product Description

Two of Hollywood's hottest stars -- Wesley Snipes (BLADE 1&2, PASSENGER 57) and Ving Rhames (PULP FICTION, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 1&2) -- go head-to-head in this explosive crime thriller! When the world's heavyweight champion (Rhames) is sent to prison, everything points to an inevitable showdown with the penitentiary's undefeated champ (Snipes). But to make sure the meeting will happen, a former mob boss (Peter Falk -- TV's COLUMBO, CORKY ROMANO) must call in favors from the outside world. Then the battle is on ... and the action, adrenaline, and intensity switch into high gear! Also featuring Master P (RHYME & REASON, I GOT THE HOOK-UP) and Ed Lover (RIDE) -- this powerfully entertaining motion picture is another crowd-pleaser from the hit-making director of 48 HRS., ANOTHER 48 HRS., and LAST MAN STANDING!

Amazon.com

Rocky gets a prison-block makeover in Undisputed, and the generic combination packs a vicious one-two punch. Owing much to the macho, gut-busting B movies of Hollywood's golden age, this no-nonsense drama gets right down to business, beginning when heavyweight champ "Iceman" Chambers (Ving Rhames) enters Sweetwater prison on a rape charge. The prison has a boxing program, and convicted killer Monroe Hutchen (Wesley Snipes) is the 10-year undefeated champion. A challenge bout is coordinated by an aging mobster prisoner (Peter Falk) and the head guard (Michael Rooker), and Undisputed pummels its way to its brutal and unpredictable conclusion. Colorful characters abound (foul-mouthed Falk is the hilarious standout), and seasoned director Walter Hill (coscripting with his Alien partner David Giler) brings them together with invigorating focus. There's not an ounce of fat on this tough-minded movie, and even its inevitable outcome seems freshly unexpected. Obviously inspired by Mike Tyson's ill-fated escapades, Undisputed turns fact into potent cellblock fiction. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars I really like this movie.... August 24, 2004
Format:DVD
Okay, i first saw this movie on cable and since they keep showing it every couple of months, i've probably seen it a total of 4 times. And i have to say...I really like this movie. I'm not a boxing fan, nor am i a fan of prison movies, but there's something about watching Wesley Snipes' understated performance as Huchens that captures my attention. I also enjoyed the side characters (Falk as Mendy is hilarious) and it's their interaction with one another (Snipes and his sidekick Ratbag...lol...Rhames and his cellmate...what's his name?... bad guy from Last Mohicans...oh yeah...Studi) that really make the movie. Needless to say, i don't want to wait for cable to show it again, i'm gonna buy the *^%$! DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple and straightforward. And not too deep. April 26, 2003
Format:DVD
This film is very straightforward. The scene is a prison, which has regular boxing matches between the inmates. Wesley Snipes, who is serving a life sentence, is the undisputed champion. And then Ving Rhames, the real world champion, is accused of rape in a very similar scenario to that of Mike Tyson. He's sentenced to the prison too. Naturally there is conflict as the two men lock horns.
There are no surprises in this film as it builds to its inevitable climax, with Peter Falk cast as a Mafioso inmate who arranges a boxing match inside the prison walls. The acting is uniformly good. And the script well written. That's about the most to be expected from this kind of film.
Frankly, I rather liked it. Maybe because it didn't try to be anything but what it was. Therefore I give it a mild recommendation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly entertaining. May 2, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Looking over several of the poor reviews is rather surprising, unless you hate the violence promoted by boxing. This is a really good boxing movie. You have a Mike Tyson-like character who winds up in prison duking it out with a modest hard lifer in a real prison with hundreds of real convicts for extras. It's interesting to watch from 2 perspectives, boxing itself and prison. However, it's definitely a movie for the guys.

4.0 out of 5 stars Prison, Boxing, and Men's Pride; Peter Falk Is Standout January 18, 2004
Format:DVD
"Undisputed" is a Walter Hill film, which means it's about well-drawn characters, simple premise, and machismo. Or especially the last thing. Here you see Wesley Snipes as 'Champ of the prison boxing' (for 10 years) Monroe Hutchen, and Ving Rhames as 'the real Champ' or George 'Iceman' Chambers, who is convicted for rape charge. But some say they don't need two champs, so they decide it by fighting.
So they fight, but not so soon. A veteran prisoner named Ripstein (excellent Peter Falk, spitting out so many F-words) steps in, who truly loves the art of boxing, and he wants them to fight there, in the prison in the middle of the desert. Surrounding the three main characters are Michael Rooker, Wes Studi, Jon Seda, Fisher Stevens, and Master P as special guest.
The story is so simple, but the point is not that part. If you are looking for "48 Hours" it's not here. Hill and co-writer David Glier opted for creating realistic characters instead of actions, so what you see first is not the names of the actors, but those of the characters. They do not talk much about themselves, unlike many films of the genre, but you get to know them through the dialogues, uttered by well-chosen actors who can really act.
"Undisputed" belongs to the genre (prison film); however, it never shows unnecessary digression in the short course of story, and Hill wants that way (see how Michael Rooker's character slyly refers to the genre itself). It is not about a hero and a villain, it's about men's pride and dignity, and on that score it succeeds.

4.0 out of 5 stars starightforward and entertaining August 23, 2004
Format:DVD
A straightforward movie of the usual Hillbent-men who are men, but not undercomplicated, in situations that test them. Although it might be argued that the Snipes character is the "good guy", there really is no full on bad guy. Rather, you have a wonderful muddle of ambiguous characters. The sidekicks are interesting in that each seems better suited not for who he is paired up with, but for that opponent of that pairing. Though I recommend the film, I am reminded in watching it that Rhames is no actor; he offers the same flat I-must-be-cool approach to his roll in this film as he did in Pulp Fiction or Mission Impossible or Dark Blue.

I am a big fan of Ving Rhames and Wesley Snipes. I really think they both did a wonderful job in this movie. Ving Rhames is a powerful actor in every role and he did not miss a step in this movie. I like the way Wesley Snipes was a strong not loud character. The movie did not make you feel sorry for the two of them. It is just a story about two very different strong men who enter into a fight to get what they both want. It was a great movie that everyone should have went to see. The ending was great.

5.0 out of 5 stars quite good June 23, 2003
By jj
Format:DVD
Another Great Movie That Seems Made For TV. I Actually Was On The Edge Of My Seat The Whole Time Wondering Who'd Win. It's Violent And Has A Scene With Peter Falk Cussing Like A Sailor. Who Ever Thought They'd See That. Well Overall I Really Liked It And Would Love To Own It.

5.0 out of 5 stars classic by the numbers movie updated October 10, 2009
Format:DVD
Back in the 1940-1950s, boxing movies were a dime a dozen. Often, they were done on a low budget or what they called back then "B" movies.

There was a formula to boxing movies: it was corrupt and an innocent victim usually the boxer himself ending up either in jail or fighting to save his life at the expense of gangsters who fixed fights in order to make money. Sometimes, the boxer would be caught in a love triangle between two women: A good girl who had his best interests at heart; and the bad girl who was beautiful, sultry and toyed with the fighters affections usually at the behest of the gangster. In the end, a moral was taught and the fighter came out OK in the end. In short, boxing was a metaphor for life: someone who with will and determination triumphed over adversity and lived to see a better day.

Fast forward now to 2002. Times have changed and the formula has changed with it. The boxing movie of today has to have edge, attitude but underlying the basic theme, the metaphor or life still applies.

We have in Ving Rhames, somewhat of a Sonny Liston character toughened to the point that nothing affects him and he won't be intimidated. Success in the ring hasn't softened him one bit.

On the other end, we have Wesley Snipes; a fighter of great promise only to have everything cut short because of murder. Snipe's character too is toughened because of bitterness over what could have been and instead of riches and fame, he has to settle for being the "baddest man in the prison system".

I'm not going to give away the whole scenario here but if you are a boxing fan and that includes collecting boxing movies, then this movie is a MUST.
