The Undefeated: A Review

Few things ignite passion more quickly than the mere mention of Governor Sarah Palin’s name, especially when it comes to the liberal left. That’s why I think Steven K. Bannon’s new documentary The Undefeated, set to release later this month in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina, is going to be an enormous success. It tells the unvarnished truth about a working class wife and mother who rose to political prominence through sheer determination, guts, and a lot of hard work.

At a screening held on Thursday in Arlington, VA, Bannon said he originally turned down a request by Palin aides Rebecca Mansour and Tim Crawford to film a series of videos for the Governor. After witnessing the energy Sarah brought to the crowds at the first national tea party event in Nashville, Bannon began to do his homework and became convinced that Sarah was not the marginal, political lightweight the mainstream media has portrayed.

Like Fire From the Heartland, Bannon’s last documentary about the rise of conservative women in American politics, the style of The Undefeated features interviews from a variety of sources, including conservative powerhouses Mark Levin and Andrew Breitbart. News clips, footage from the campaign trail, and never-before-seen videos of the Heath and Palin families, along with gorgeous panoramic views of an untamed Alaskan wilderness, are just a few things one can expect when watching The Undefeated.

The beginning of the yet unrated two-hour documentary confronts the viewer with the vile, often explicit language used by Hollywood and political leftist elites when they discuss Sarah Palin. The film is divided into three acts: Act 1 gives a glimpse of a young Sarah and her early involvement in politics on the local and state level. Act 2 takes an extremely detailed look at the multitude of accomplishments Sarah made in the short eighteen months she served as Governor of Alaska, enjoying the highest approval rating of any sitting Governor in history. Act 3 begins where most Americans were first introduced to Sarah Palin--August 2008, when it was announced that she would join Senator John McCain as his Vice Presidential running mate.

The Undefeated, with it's Philip Glass style sound track, has a consistent theme throughout--it portrays a woman of deep courage and conviction, a politician with an intense focus and dedication to the people she's called to serve. The viewer will get to know a very different Sarah as he takes a journey through her political life, and along the way, I think he'll grow to love her as much as we do.

**On June 10th, Victory Film Group announced that The Undefeated will play exclusively at select AMC Theatres beginning July 15th. Read more... If you'd like to have The Undefeated shown at a theater near you, you may vote at this link

Tell me, do you think it's okay for conservative pundits, such as Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Rush Limbaugh, and Laura Ingraham, to insult and attack liberals like they do every single day? If you do think that's okay, then why do you think it's so wrong for liberals to attack Sarah Palin? What's good for the goose is good for the gander, right?

Also (and I know this is a bit off-topic, but I didn't know where else to ask it, so please don't use it as a reason to delete my comment), why do you support Palin when she's proved time and time again that she simply isn't intelligent enough about politics and about the wide world around us to be able to handle being the president of the entire country? Not to mention that she couldn't even handle being the governor of Alaska, and she ended up resigning from that position, so what makes you think she wouldn't just try to resign from the presidency as well, once the pressure got to her? I mean, sure, she's good at being a celebrity, but I just don't see her being good at any sort of politics. I'm sorry, but I just don't.

Because we're right. they are wrong. There is a right side and a wrong side. This isn't high school. This is real life, these are real issues.

As for your last paragraph, it's another oh-so-typical liberal attack on her intelligence, when you clearly haven't the slightest clue what you're talking about. Therefore, it doesn't deserve a response.
