The prisoner turned hero, Yuri Boyka, is back in the fourth installment of the undisputed film series.
Boyka is out of prison, a fugitive of the Russian prisons, trying to step up in the fighting circuit in Kiev.
A qualifying fight right at the beginning of the movie clearly shows us that the fight choreography of this movie is top notch for fighting action movie fans out there, with fast paced ring action and martial arts styles show off.
The accidental death of his opponent in the ring places our hero in search of forgiveness, a now dedicated follower of God, this weights in his conscience enough to go search for the deceased family and justify the accidental outcome.

The grieving widow expectedly receives Boyka in a cold way, turning down any leads of the sorrowful convict, but Boyka can be persuasive and stays around enough to find a way of meeting his peace of mind about the well-being of the latest.
Directed by Todor Chapkanov and Written by David White, the story is weak at most times outside the matches, a good plot but with few memorable moments, serving just as a glue to justify the next ring fight.
Scott Adkins is at his best as Boyka, and the beautiful Teodora Duhovnikova gives Alma, the widow, a wonderful sight. Alon Aboutboul is the underground boss, Zourab, who oversees the rising difficulties to our hero throughout his penance.
It’s not the best movie in the series, Undisputed III still takes the breath away of newcomers to the series, but the fights in Undisputed 4 make up for the weak, forgetful story, and will glue you to the screen while you try to pick up all the fast-moving action inside the ring.
We give it a 7 out of 10.
