    Chad S is on the money with his review of Undisputed. Ving Rhames steals the show with his portrayal of a Mike Tyson (clone). Peter Falk is fantastic as the Jewish mobster. Wesley Snipes is very believable as "Jack the Giant Killer" Monroe in taking down the real undisputed champion of the world. Food for thought? What is ironic is that Snipes, a really decent man, makes one mistake and Chad S is on the money with his review of Undisputed. Ving Rhames steals the show with his portrayal of a Mike Tyson (clone).

What is ironic is that Snipes, a really decent man, makes one mistake and must pay for it for the rest of his natural life. On the hand, Rhames makes mistake after mistake, and regardless he gets another chance. It only proves that superstars get special treatment when it is totally unwarranted. The suspense is thick and the outcome predictable. But it is still a movie that will hold your attention and definetly worth seeing. Expand

    Not that fantastic. Rhames was fantastic, but that was it.....not a great movie. Played out, bad choreography at last fight, and generally not even close to the scores people gave it.

    Ving Rhames is so convincing as a boxer, you'll think it's perfectly plausible for him to go a couple rounds with current heavyweight champ Lennox Lewis before the inevitable T.K.O. Wesley Snipes is no slouch either but it's Rhames that'll blow you away with his riveting portrayal of a Mike Tyson-type. "Undisputed" will divide the audience into not two, but three Ving Rhames is so convincing as a boxer, you'll think it's perfectly plausible for him to go a couple rounds with current heavyweight champ Lennox Lewis before the inevitable T.K.O. Wesley Snipes is no slouch either but it's Rhames that'll blow you away with his riveting portrayal of a Mike Tyson-type. "Undisputed" will divide the audience into not two, but three camps; the go-between camp who believes the woman is lying, and that Iceman Chambers(Rhames) belongs in prison anyway because he'll eventually harm some woman someday. It's too bad the film has Snipes sequestered in solitary confinement with an arts and crafts project because he's good too, as a decent man who's paying with his life for one bad day. "Undisputed" is not a great prison, or boxing movie, but its adeptness at both genres add up to a great hybrid of the two. The final fight sequence is scintillating. It's the conviction the actors bring to the ring, but it's also the venue and the atmosphere. This is Walter Hill's best movie since "48 Hours". Expand

    The film has two highlights -- a profanity-laced monologue by Peter Falk about boxing and the one-on-one confrontation between Monroe and Chambers in the ring.
  2. Undisputed is a shrewd and splendidly volatile B movie structured around a highly original gambit of suspense.
  3. There's no denying that Undisputed delivers the action-movie goods, and so do Snipes and Rhames. It should have been more memorable, but at least it doesn't stumble in the ring.
