I gotta admit, I’ve come to hate prison fighting movies. I’ve also learned to hate tournament fighting movies as well. Which is weird, because I used to eat this stuff up in the ’90s. Unfortunately it’s 2010, and the cheapie nature of tournament fighting flicks are just, well, so ’90s. Can’t someone give me an actual movie premise instead of just throwing a bunch of guys into a ring and writing a script around all the bloodshed? How hard it is to justify someone with Adkins’ talents going through a non-tourney fighting storyline and still have him bust heads? I’m just saying. But hey, at least this one has Scott Adkins in it, but hopefully this will be the last tourney fight flick for him. Hopefully. Here’s the latest trailer for Adkins’ “Undisputed 3: Redemption” (via Scott Adkinz Fanz.)
Originally a secondary character in “Undisputed 2”, part 3 now stars Adkins as Uri Boyka, a heavily tattooed and heavily badass Eastern European fighter who gets involved in an International prison fighting circuit run by evil Russian-sounding guys in order to win his freedom. Oh, those crazy Russian-sounding guys and their evil prison fighting schemes. When will they learn? Much head is busted and asses are kicked, one suspects, as our hero fights for his freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeedom.
Starring Scott Adkins, Mykel Shannon Jenkins, Mark Ivanir, Hristo Shopov, Marko Zaror, Michael Baral, Ilram Choi, Robert Costanzo, Lateef Crowder, Esteban Cueto, Vernon Dobtcheff, Valentin Ganev, and directed by Isaac Florentine, who also directed Adkins in “Ninja”.
The DVD lands Stateside either in June.
