I didn't know this was a political blog!
13 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To start with, I thought this website (imdb) was about films, documentaries, and the occasional TV shows and series. I also assumed that the user reviews were of a critical nature of a given piece as it pertains to story, screenplay, acting, cinematography... you know the rest. But this film seems mostly reviewed as a function of the political beliefs of the reviewer. Substance be damned. It's similar to people that hate Woody Allen movies not because of his film work but because he's been accused of child molestation. I like many of his films, but I don't need to like him.

I would contrast this film to the film 'The Iron Lady', which got very high ratings. I reviewed it with poor ratings based on the lack of content, not because I like or dislike Margaret Thatcher. Like 'The Undefeated', I wanted to know more about Thatcher but, in this case, walked away with no clue as to her career in office, only an image of a pitiful old lady who couldn't possibly have lead Great Britain as she did. Thus, a negative rating based on a very poor story/screenplay.

I watched 'The Undefeated' to try to learn a bit more about someone who seems to always be slammed by the press but without much substance as to why. In this film, I got a lot of information which greatly helped me to understand where she came from, what she did, and how she has become so hated by the media. I won't elaborate on the media hate in that that's a political statement and as I've implied, this has no place in a review of a film based on the merits of production.

On a negative note, I didn't care for the choppy edits or the UTube-like fragments. I find that style distracting. I believe this is the director and editor(s) fault. What's funny though, is I've seen this type of cinema work before but the films weren't politically charged. The positive reviews liked this style and considered it as 'edgy' and 'street real'. At least one negative review of 'The Undefeated' judged the style as amateur. Go figure. I just don't like it in any case and judged accordingly.

Bottom line, if you want a pretty in depth documentary of Sarah Palin, watch this film. If you don't like what you've been told about her, why waste your time watching it?
