Retired mixed martial artist Wes "The Jailor" Baylor (Scott Adkins) can't refuse a million-dollar purse he's offered for one final bout in Myanmar. But when he arrives for the fight, he ... See full summary »
Scott Adkins had to put on a significant amount of weight for the part of Boyka in order to be visually convincing as a contender for Michael Jai White. 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.
