Does The World Really Need Undisputed 3? Probably Not.

Undisputed3If you’re a mixed martial artist with an inkling of acting talent, by all means, take advantage of the current wave of MMA action flicks which are making their way to video store shelves at an alarming rate. “Blood & Bone” is already collecting dust, and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s “Damage” is scheduled for release sometime next year. And those are just a few I’m pulling off the top of my head. Now, apparently, “Undisputed 3,” the second sequel nobody wanted, is ready for mass consumption. Considering how interchangeable these films really are, does anyone really care? Are there enough fans of the original films to warrant another follow-up? Apparently so.

Directed by Isaac Florentine (“Bridge of Dragons,” “Undisputed 2″), the film follows yet another illegal prison fight club and the large, angry men who participate in it. The first place prize: freedom, sweet and pure. If you were expecting more of a story, then shame on you.

Check out the trailer below. It looks mildly interesting, but then again, so does every other MMA movie currently on the market.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.

    I just want to see it for Scott Adkins and whoever that black dude is. Still haven’t seen part two but after seeing Blood and Bone I want more Michael Jai White. And definitely need to see “Ninja” when it drops.

    Are you Kidding!!! The only movie in this serie taht wasn’t necessary was the first one….Undisputed 2 is one incredible fight movie. Micheal Jay White and Scott Adkins are awesome. We don’t need anything else. Blood and Bone and Undisputed 2 was release direct to dvd but was so much better than probably 75% of all the crap that was relase in the past 2 years in theater.

    Todd your an asshole who has no clue what Undisputed 3 is, go watch pt 2 again!!! How dare u go in on part 3 with negativity, good movies deserve good sequels. You should be ragging on Fighting by channing tatum (but u probably liked that film..smh). If u are not a MMA fan or martial arts fan stay away from writing stupid write ups like this, MMA is a big community so let it have its time. Scott Adkins deserves to be in A list films but if this is his route to get there let the talented guy shine. BTW eat crow when Undisputed 3 hits and does decent numbers for a DTV sequel that “you” claim no one wanted…

    ok….the whole cynical douchebag internet critic thing is getting old. way to knock something you’re totally clueless about (hence all the angry responses).
    undisputed 2 was far superior to it’s prequel (a serious rarity) and while i agree that the MMA movie craze is getting kinda ridiculous, you chose the wrong films to knock.

    fighting, never back down, never surrender…..you knock blood and bone when those atrocities exist on the video market???? dude, do some research (like actually watching the movies you talk about) and then get back to us.

      Again. AMen! I really must say these martial arts films coming out today are really being overlooked because they are DTV and that carries a certain stigma. But “Blood and Bone” was damned good and I hope they make a sequel, and this looks to be Adkins’ breakout before “Ninja” hits.
