Director and screenwriter Walter Hill returns to one of his favorite themes -- desperate and violent men using force to escape from an unforgiving environment -- in this action drama set behind bars. Monroe Hutchen (Wesley Snipes) was once a promising heavyweight contender until he was convicted of murder and sentenced to life without parole at the Sweetwater maximum security prison in California.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"With flashbulb editing as cover for the absence of narrative continuity, Undisputed is nearly incoherent, an excuse to get to the closing bout ... by which time it's impossible to care who wins."
‑ Dan Fienberg, L.A. Weekly
"A shrewd and splendidly volatile B movie structured around a highly original gambit of suspense."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"A forgettable prison boxing movie."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"A solid, efficient B movie that holds the screen masterfully for an all-too-brief 90 minutes."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, FulvueDrive-in.com
"Too reliant on its already-dated "topicality" and listlessly coasting on a laundry list of prisonyard plot points."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"Hill looks to be going through the motions, beginning with the pale script."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"If Hill isn't quite his generation's Don Siegel (or Robert Aldrich), it's because there's no discernible feeling beneath the chest hair; it's all bluster and cliché."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
"It's dead in the water before the climax."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"As with any boxing movie or fight card, the main event doesn't come until the very end, and like too many pay-per-view packages the undercard is underwhelming."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"...a B picture in an era that doesn't really allow for them."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Walter Hill's prison-boxing flick Undisputed could have been a great B, but it represents a failure of nerve."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
"I've got nobody to root for ... in a movie like this I want to root for one of the boxers in the ring."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"[A] rock-hard, streamlined "B" movie."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"We have no idea where these characters have been, so we don't care where they're going."
‑ Mark Collette, Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
"A história se desenvolve de forma curiosa, mas a luta final deixa a desejar."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
