The fourth part was a success, and this is important. The fear that the best melee zero deductible can be a failure not justified. "Undisputed 4" non-ideal in terms of plot and inferior to the previous films in terms of charisma of enemies, but all as good in the plan of action.

In this part smartly found God, accidentally killed on the ring of the enemy and went to the city of Drowny for forgiveness from the wife of the deceased. There he makes a deal for a few battles with a local crime boss and fights, fights, fights...

Choreographed fighting, great shape Edkins and good cinematography are the advantages for you can forgive a lot. The film did not boring, dialogues are few, fights a lot. For fans of the series the most.

For respectful attitude to the traditions is almost a dead genre, for the stunning Scott Adkins and tricks, all of which can still surprise:

In 2002, the year on the screens out the sports drama "the Discussion is not subject," which often went under the name "Undisputed". Despite that in the film, attended the Wesley snipes and Ving Rhames, and the Director was Walter hill, on "Compelling" is not much hope laid. However, the film has established itself with the best hand, that gave the opportunity to prolong the film, turning it into a movie. Snipes, Rhames and hill more than not appear, but in the second part, published in 2006 new Scott edkins, martial arts master, embodied the image of the main antagonist. Further, all of the franchise has proceeded with the torchbearers Edkins, and series of the series, he is better better yet the fourth film is not was the main protagonist and the film won in the original names for the name of his hero — "Boyka".

We have something like the Slavs, the more familiar another variant of the name, but it "smartly", but forgive our overseas colleagues such little nestykovochka. But it's nice that our countryman has become a champion of justice and honor, but still all of them on the arena carries down the dust, and what a spectacular style — it is only necessary to see. But unfortunately, observe that holding my breath you in the second and third installments of the franchise, where the footage was directed by Isaac Florentine, and performances of the fighting was engaged in the real masters of their craft. In"Undisputed 4" Florentina have was not the brave spirit of the franchise immediately vanished. We come with "bad russian mafia", from stereotyping which has already set on edge was Packed and want to spit. Again, Russian weird names, again around the devastation that American propaganda is so corrosive planted its citizens about the USSR. And even the fact that a lot for"Undisputed 4" made the Bulgarians, once very akin to a nation, not saves the movie.

And the plot of "Undisputed 4" consists of a very simple, banal and recognizable things. Yuri Boyka in one of fighting for the right to participate in the prestigious competition kills his opponent. Becoming very devout, the firing pin is not can make awareness about the incident, guided by conscience and faith should run-down Russian town (by the way, in Russia, Boyka — all of the wanted criminal), where wants to give prize money to the widow of the slain. But the widow not warmly welcomes the penitent, but the Striker understands that something here and the end, is involved in clandestine fights without the rules held by the local mafia. In when the waves of success of such films (about 80-90 years of the last century) "Undisputed 4" would look much more preferable, but in the new century cinema this one is not surprised, but rather, it is even irritating. So if You tired stereotypes Russian, better pass an "Undisputed 4" only if You not a big fan of Yuri Boyka.

Now we can talk about melee, what was famous for the second and third part of the franchise (by the way, who knows that the first film was Boxing then in the course went feet, elbows and everything else to fight sports arena). Entertainment there was rife, it was so effectively that breath captured. In"Undisputed 4" all this somewhere lost. Like and waving the Striker and his opponents arms and legs not weak, but somehow it all looks cheap, no adrenaline, no drive, no. the nerve. Even the final battle with a huge fellow, which is specifically for the fight with a jury of the Slammer pulled out, does not cause any particular emotion. Therefore, to unfortunately, "Undisputed 4" turned into the usual average "fighting-movie" and even there is an assumption, while unwarranted, that "Undisputed 4" — this is the final part of the famous videotransit, although even something as difficult to part with such a character as Yuri Boyka.

Write a review rather than a review. The text is not a lot will be, but to speak still want.

So, in basically I as an Amateur Thriller about this series of movies, learned from the first "Undisputed" (with Wesley Snipes and Ving Ransom, and of course with Peter Falk), which I seemed quite boring. Why? Because the film is more inclined to the drama than the action. But then I happened to look "Undisputed 2" Jay white in the title role, the edkins had not yet so the hearing was, as time to this film. And it really came out cool Groovy movie with a simple plot, but well written characters and actors who embodied these images and the main class dynamics, in particular shows action scenes. And the Striker was a cool villain and white played "fading boxer," in General, I was happy.

Then there was "Undisputed 3",which is the success of the predecessor, on my opinion, no lowered the bar and went very cool. Again, great fights and very charismatic characters. Due to this, bloopers "Russian police and accent" is not particularly catch eyes. And the ending was such that in principle, it was possible to complete a series of...

And probably a year ago, there is a trailer for the film "Undisputed 4", all looked well and at the level of the previous parts (2 and 3), but the movie is coming out long and I already have forgotten about him, recently came across this movie in good quality and happy — Boyka is back! But the joy was short-lived...

The film begins without any foreplay, explaining that and was a Brisk, after its"liberation" in the last part, almost the beginning shows the battle. Rather primitive the main theme of the film, with fight freedom of the main character, for the sake of atonement... But not going to describe the chronology of the film, look it up yourself, if not look, I will note a few points:

Positive:

- of course the edkins in the role of the Strikers;

- all same high quality and visually beautiful fighting;

- camera work;

- musical accompaniment.

Not like:

- attempt to focus on the drama, on my opinion is not found;

- no charismatic villains;

- the lack of the same Mark Ivanir, who also left a considerable mark in a series of these films;

- Creasy plot, someone will say, and so trite, but still... some points would be worth to explain;

not successful casting, if so you can say, well, or the Director is not able to convey, but the main character, I don't empathized, because the fight Strikers with her husband was some does not even know, very short... given that at stake was a trip to I have mentioned the European championship...

In General, summing up a little — I am disappointed with the view, but not love it. If the creators will make a sequel, then I would like that would have returned the "old" characters and have focused on the battle, and then on the experiences of the protagonist. Although, if you remember the first film, "Undeniable", then the creators went back to basics, and continue to the logic to be is not should... but as they say, wait — see.
