A westerner named Casey, studying Ninjutsu in Japan, is asked by the Sensei to return to New York to protect the legendary Yoroi Bitsu, an armored chest that contains the weapons of the last Koga Ninja.
Michael Jai White ("Iceman" Chambers) stated that despite being on screen rivals, he and Scott Adkins (Boyka) got along very well off camera because neither of them were method actors. "On camera, we'd have on our mean faces and be trying to intimidate one another. But as soon as the director yelled 'Cut!', we were back to talking about places to eat good salads." See more »
Stevie is seen injecting drugs after George and Yuri's training sequence. Letting alone the fact that his arm has unbelievably good veins for someone who has been shooting for years, and the fact he appears to inject retrogradely into muscle rather than vein there is in addition a revealing prop: he pushes the needle about 3cm into his arm and then pulls it away revealing that the needle is now 3cm shorter. In a prop like this the needle pushes into the syringe giving the illusion that it goes into the body. Normally the needle is spring-loaded so that it pushes back out, but this did not occur with this prop. See more »

more a remake than a sequel, but still entertaining
Former heavyweight champion, George 'The Iceman' Chambers (Micheal Jai White, taking over for Ving Rhames) is sent to a Russian gulag on trumped-up charges where he must fight. Once you get past that this movie is less of a sequel than a remake (one that misses the whole crux of the original I might add). Once you surrender to the fact that Walter Hill is the Undisputed winner in directing. You'll find that this direct to DVD movie is actually pretty good in a brainless action movie kind of way. White does the best with what he's been given and the fight scenes are well staged. One could find worse ways to spend around an hour and a half, can't vouch for the film being very memorable though. To sum up, more in common with the Penitentiary films of days of yore than a sequel to Undisputed, but it's still solid.
