What's It About? The Undefeated is a two-hour documentary about the political life of Sarah Palin. The film is structured into three acts: the mayoral years, when Palin had to overcome corrupt local vested interests to serve two successful terms as Mayor of Wasilla; her term as Governor of Alaska, during which she achieved a stratospheric 80 percent approval rating; and her surprising selection as John McCain’s running mate. Many people believe that McCain would have lost by a larger margin had Palin not been on the ticket. Also appearing in the film are prominent political commentators Mark Levin, Tammy Bruce and Andrew Breitbart, as well as conservative activists Kate Obenshain, Sonnie Johnson and Jamie Radtke. Additionally, the film features interviews with Alaskan civil servants, elected officials and advisers who were involved in Alaskan politics during Governor Palin’s tenure.
Should You Go See It? Absolutely. Even if Sarah Palin decides not to run for president, you could be getting a sneak preview of the next vice-president of the United States. If Mitt Romney wins the Republican nomination, he could make no better decision than to select Palin as his running mate. You marry up Romney's professionalism with Palin's passion, and you get a powerful one-two punch that can knock Obama out of the White House in November 2012. Palin would also make a good running mate for Ron Paul.
Film critic Roger Ebert wasn't particularly impressed, calling it a campaign film in search of a campaign. He said that the audience of about 180 was attentive but undemonstrative until more than an hour in, when CNBC's Rick Santelli drew applause for a rerun of his famous rant from the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade on Obama's mortgage bailout. Once the ice was broken, the audience applauded from time to time during fiery praise of the Tea Party and Palin speeches. Ebert wonders if Stephen K. Bannon actually has his money on a third-party bid by Palin as a Tea Party candidate. But some people who posted responses to Ebert's critique were more effusive in their praise (after the jump):

Better review from Ebert than anyone would have ever expected, that said, did we see the same movie?
This movie sets straight all the lies told about Sarah Palin by the corrupt media, it also shows how there was a concerted effort, coordinated from the West Wing of the White House, to stop Sarah after the election.
The movie id playing to sold out theaters, and lots of cheers. Though I was not in Chicago, the folks I know who saw the movie tell a far different story about the crowd reaction. Like everywhere else, the crowd was quite loud. There is a huge presence of Palin supporters in Illinois.
As for the tittle, it's not about elections, or even Sarah Palin, it's about the American spirit. Of course, Sarah Palin's common sense conservatism is undefeated as well.
The left wing loons who clogged up the courts with bogus law suits, and cost the state millions, thought they had stopped Palin. Instead she's become a thousand times stronger, and she will be the next President of these United States.
As the movie highlights, Sarah Palin has a 20 year record of incredible success as a chief executive in government. She's created jobs, balanced budgets, and left Alaska with a $15 billion surplus.
That's much better than the $14 TRILLION deficit the Chicago street thug currently in the White House can say.

What has Sarah Palin done to anyone? Really! Sarah's living rent-free in liberals' heads.
Funny thing is that she's got a thicker skin than Obama.
She's endured countless misogynistic attacks. The left has it in for conservative women because they don't fit the template for women in politics.
How would any liberal woman politician survive what Sarah's gone through? They've burned her church down. They've stalked her. They've called her family inbreds. They've joked (?) about how her son, Trig, should've been aborted.
Plus the left always always draw attention to her gaffes, as if she is some idiot. Ever hear of Pelosi? Biden? Sharpton? Sheila Jackson Lee? THOSE ARE IDIOTS. The left conveniently ignores Obama's gaffes.
The bottom line is that liberals attack her personally because they can't compete with her in the arena of ideas.
LIBERALS ARE SCARED OF HER BECAUSE SHE IS EFFECTIVE.
Go, Sarah, go!!!

Those of you who yuck it up over Sarah Palin had better prepare for a shock. If you think she is not running and will not win the presidency in 2012, you haven't been paying attention. I'm sure it will be too much to ask that you see "The Undefeated", then draw your own conclusion. Be informed.
Roger has it right, it was the corrupt, RINO Republicans that Sarah Palin took down in Alaska. She will implode Obama like a stuck balloon and at least attempt to clean up the corruption in Washington. She is the only one with executive experience and a RECORD of doing so. Who does the Left have? Certainly not The One. The Left has no one. Aren't you proud?

The thing that sticks out about Palin is the fact that she is truly a non partisan figure. She is, in all the ways that have meaning, a real person. She does what she believes to be right, and what she believes to be right happens to be what accords with reality. She is an actual feminist. She has the kind of personal integrity that American's should strive for. I'm not saying you have to agree with her politics. But those who dismiss her and people that have been drawn into politics because of her influence over the last few years are greatly underestimating what is happening among conservatives and moderates, in this country. Obama, (if you disagree with him ideologically) has put Americas feet to the fire, in the sense that he has cast into stark relief the kinds of changes that have been taking place here for the past 80 or 90 years. America is changing. Now it's time for those who understand what is good about America, what is worth preserving, to be prepared to speak up and step forward and stop assuming that things will just work out on their own. Hence, this movie. Hence the Teaparty. We are silent no more. And whether you agree with the Teaparty or not, people getting involved is a good thing. And it is long over due.
