Immediately there is bad blood with Chambers not wanting to be second to no one which leads to a lunch room fight between the men.

Goofs

The movie stated that Sweetwater Prison is a Level 5 facility. California prisons do not have level 5 facilities. The classification level of every prison in California goes from Level 1 through Level 4. Level 1 is minimum and level 4 is maximum security.

An Undisputed Waste!
15 October 2004 | by buckaroobanzai50See all my reviews

At this very moment as I type, I am watching what has to be one of THE worst movies I have seen, in a long time. I cannot believe that Walter Hill, who gave us Red Heat among many other great films, actually directed this. It is a total waste from start to finish. There are some great actors in this trash: Wesley Snipes, Ving Rhames, Peter Falk, and Michael Rooker. Also some bad ones like Fisher Stevens. But the lame script does them all no justice. An attempt at adding tension to the build up to a supposed great fight in the prison inwhich the film is set, falls flat every time a lame caption such as "...9 days to the fight." appears on screen. And even the actual boxing match is lackluster, when compared to the ones in the Rocky movies. Wesley Snipes hasn't had a hit film in years, and one hopes that the soon to be released Blade 3 will wash the bad taste of Undisputed out of his fans mouthes.

AVOID at all costs...Unless you wish to see Columbo spit forth about fifty expletives in as many seconds.
