Quotes

Warden Lipscom: I don't make it a habit of meeting with prisoners. I'm doing this out of deference to Mr. Mercker here, who thought it would be a good idea. However, any attempt to have me reinstate the fight between Mr. Chambers and Monroe Hutchen will be futile. It has been irrevocably cancelled.

Undisputed
29 February 2020 | by MR_HeracliusSee all my reviews

A solid prison drama with strong performances by Wesley Snipes and Ving Rhames, but the film lacks in any form of human emotion or character study and just leaves a dark shell that isn't totally filled and makes you feel unsatisfied. But it's not to say it isn't well-crafted from it's director, Walter Hill. It also has one of the best boxing showdowns shown in a film since the original Rocky and Raging Bull.
