Editorial Reviews

Jake (Sean Faris) is the new kid in school. When a beautiful girl (Amber Heard) befriends him, Jake thinks he's set. But instead, her fight-club boyfriend, Ryan (Cam Gigandet), smacks Jake a bloody, black-eyed welcome. Humiliated, Jake then turns to a mix

I just got back from seeing Never Back Down and I have to say this movie was awesome! I really was not expecting much and figured this would be a Fight Club rip off. After watching it it was nothing like I expected and I ended up being really entertained and got in to the whole story. Sean Faris plays Jake Tyler a high school football player, who is dealing with the guilt of his fathers death. When his mom moves the family to Orlando Jakes fighting and angry past follow him. He meets a girl named Baja who is being used by her boyfriend Ryan to get Jake to fight him. Baja lures Jake to a party only to have Ryan beat him up pretty badly. After being humiliated Jake takes his friend Max's advice to learn a mixed-martial from a man named Jean Roqua. He will not only learn valuable lessons and discipline to deal with his angry past, but also to settle a score and define himself. In the tradition of Fight Club, The Peaceful Warrior and a bit of inspiration from The Fast and The Furious movies Never Back Down is one action packed rush!

5.0 out of 5 stars SICK!!!!!!! April 10, 2008
This is one of the sickest movies i've seen in years. I totally liked it. Not just the fight scenes but the whole story was awesome!!!! This is a must see!! This shows an outsider moving into town. His past somehow follows him via internet. (Makes me wonder if Big Brother is watching us!) He then goes on this journey from just being someone quick to fight to being a warrior in more ways than just one. Sure Jake Tyler becomes a better fighter at this MMA gym, but as i said also becomes a warrior in more ways than one. Tyler then learns when and how to pick his battles. It kind of shows a young man experiencing his Rite of Passage too. It's an awesome flick. The soundtrack also looks pretty sick.

NEVER BACK DOWN is a teen-action-martial arts drama that has all the ingredients to entertain a VERY specific audience. The film isn't going to win awards for its story, but then again, what martial arts film ever had? The film has a very formulaic and routine storyline but what caught my notice are its action sequences. Please note that this is a review of the film's "Beat Down" edition that supposedly contains more punches and kicks, more blood and graphic violence.

A young man with an ill temper named Jake Tyler (Sean Faris) has been trying to keep his life together with his mother and younger brother after his father`s death. They move to another town from Iowa so his brother can pursue a tennis scholarship. Once in school, he gets baited by a pretty girl, Baja (Amber Heard), to a party that ended up with Jake getting his head kicked in by the resident "Beat Down" champ Ryan McCarthy (Cam Gigandet). Frustrated, Jake enlists Max's (Evan Peters) aid to introduce him to a master of mixed martial arts named Jean Roqua (Djimon Hounsou) with revenge on his mind. After training for sometime in the Dojo, Jake realizes more things about family, discipline and friendship; and more importantly controlling his anger. Jake isn't interested in fighting anymore. However, now that he's been training under Roqua, McCarthy is even more eager to fight Jake...

The film has all the elements we can relate to; family issues, bullying at school, forgiving oneself and atonement. At first impression, I thought it was just going to be a bad rethread of "The Karate Kid" with just more action and violence. Well, it actually is a rehash if you think about it in regards to its plot but the film is quite entertaining.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good If you are in the target audience September 8, 2008
Ok, first off, people need to see this movie for what it is; a fast paced action flick full of girls, cars and fighting. This film is aimed squarely at a younger audience (like myself, 18) who enjoy some good action, even if it doesn't have the best plot, which, I will admit, is very thin. And to all the old farts giving their snobish reviews, go watch romantic comedies or some independent film and talk about how sophisticated it is and how clever you are for watching it. This movie is about adrenaline and thats about it. If your too old to remember what that is, then avoid this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story - be careful of your audience March 24, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I saw this on cable TV one night and really enjoyed the story so I got this to share with my wife. We were a little shocked to see some of the scenes that had been edited out for the version I saw. In truth, these were just gratuitous and added nothing to the story, but added because they could.

3.0 out of 5 stars Been There Done That March 7, 2009
If watching NEVER BACK DOWN seems familiar, it is. The plot, themes, and fight sequences are taken straight from THE KARATE KID, THE FIGHT CLUB, and any presentation of the UFC. Sean Faris has the task of playing an updated Ralph Machio, a high school kid who moves into jock territory, where he is soon tricked into facing a serious beat down from the local mixed martial arts star (Cam Gigandet)--also a high school student. In real life, both are pushing thirty yet play teens. The age differential is only one area that marks this film more as a fantasy than either of its progenitors. The high school that Faris attends is populated exclusively by jock types (Faris/Gigandet), lovely model types (Amber Heard who plays the love interest), and assorted nerds who exist only to suffer at the fists of the bully boys. Except for Faris, everyone is impossibly rich. There are nightly parties at mansions, where Gatsby-like, entertainment is provided in the form of ritualized beatdowns. The plot is based on the successful KARATE KID model. In this case the Pat Morita role is played by Djion Honsou, who teaches the martial arts not as a stylized kata in karate but as the much copied format seen weekly in the Octagon of the UFC. Honsou, like Morita before him, perpetuates the belief that one can teach a novice enough about fighting in a few weeks to win a local championship. The training sessions are grim and brutal. The forward thrust of the film is the climax between Faris and Gigandet, with a number of ROCKY sequences used. Unlike Machio, who played the Karate Kid as a basically likable sort, Faris acts more like an unregenerate jerk. He is filled with rage over the death of his father, and he unwisely disregards the sage advice of his sensei, who like Pat Morita, has his own issues with the past. Read more ›
