Storyline

Ex-boxer Zack (Alex Meraz), talented MMA fighter Tim (Todd Duffee), bullied record store clerk Justin (Scott Epstein), and wrestler Mike (Dean Geyer) come from various backgrounds, but they all share one thing in common: a passion for the "savage science" and quickly become loyal to their unorthodox trainer, Case (Michael Jai White), a brilliant ex-UFC Champion down on his own luck. Teaching them about much more than fighting, Case prepares the young men for a competition called the Beatdown, run by local college kid and fight impresario Max (Evan Peters). When their mentor gets set-up by some bad cops, the young men band together to root out a traitor in their midst. Written by Anonymous

what can I say
4 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

Seriously, gotta ask some of the reviewers if they even seen the movie because some look like they don't know what they're talking about and get stuff all mixed up or just make up things. Probably expected Undisputed 4 or some kind of movie with the quality of something like Lord of the Rings. Don't you just hate it when people do that?

About the movie itself.. If you expect some kind of blockbuster that should've been in cinema and and definitely belongs in every DVD collection then you should just walk away from this one. But if you just wanna enjoy a movie and liked the first one and the trailer for this one then this is something for you.

Inspite of what some people are saying here the acting for this movie was fine (nothing special, but good enough), the plot actually did make sense (and so did the fights) and there really was some character development (again, nothing great but it was enough for these kind of movies)

I give this 8 out of 10 for delivering exactly what I was hoping for after watching the first movie and seeing the trailer for this.

So if you liked the first movie and/or liked the trailer for this one and can enjoy a movie that's not some blockbuster thing, then go watch this.
