This review is from: Undisputed II - Last Man Standing (DVD)
I grew up watching every Jean-Claude, Chuck Norris, and Steven Segal movie of the 80's and 90's. If it had action in it, I watched it. I recently saw Expendables 2 and got a bit nostalgic. I was very impressed by the fight scene between Jason Statham and Scott Adkins even though it was short. I liked Adkins' fighting skills, and that made me think of all the stars I mentioned earlier. I wasn't familiar with his work, so I got on Amazon and found Undisputed II. Now I'm even more impressed with Adkins skills.
I never saw the first Undisputed and it's not necessary for the story. Michael Jai White is George Chambers a former boxing champ who gets set up and thrown in a Russian prison to fight against "the most complete fighter in the world" Uri Boyka, played by Scott Adkins. People outside the prison place bets on the fighters. The mob owns the prison and is losing money since no other fighter can beat Boyka. They're counting on Chambers to turn their fortune around.
The story may seem like it's been done before but not with this kind of action. The fight scenes are gold. Adkins is truly amazing and steals the spotlight. All of his moves left me in awe. If you're a fan of MMA or action movies, see this movie now!!! I can't believe it took me this long to find this movie. The DVD has some extra features including commentary while the movie plays. I was willing to pay much more for this movie but got it super cheap on Amazon. There's no excuse for not owning this one. I plan on watching it again with the commentary even though I just watched it yesterday. Yes, it's that good!!
