Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

When an enterprising college student (Evan Peters, the only link to the first Never Back Down) organizes an underground, pay-per-view fighting tournament, he needs a key ingredient: competitors. And so gathers the buff, seemingly steroid-friendly crew of Never Back Down 2: The Beatdown, a collection of muscled misfits with something to prove. There's Mike (Dean Geyer), who's angry about his father leaving the family for another dude; ladies' man Zack (Alex Meraz); screw-loose psycho Justin (Scottie Epstein); and hulking Tim (Todd Duffee), whose mother is forced to wait tables at a strip club to make ends meet. They all train under the Buddha-like gaze of Case (Michael Jai White), an ex-con with a free-floating gym for Mixed Martial Arts instruction. You can almost hear the heavy-metal training montages screaming into view, and sure enough, The Beatdown leans heavily on such staples of the genre. The storytelling may be one cliché after another, but give White (he also directed) some credit: at least the movie has some energy, and a few funny moments scattered along the way. And, of course, when the beatdown arrives, there's no stinting on the bone-crunching cage fighting. Pretty enjoyable if your tastes run to such things, The Beatdown is actually something of an improvement over the first Never Back Down--a minor surprise in the straight-to-DVD world. --Robert Horton

Product Description

Behind closed doors of a seemingly normal college, the ultimate showdown in underground MMA fighting is being planned. Ex-MMA rising star Case Walker (Michael Jai White) trains four college-age fighters, each with their own individual obstacles. Case will instruct them to master the most mind-blowing fighting techniques and go head to head in the most punishing competition ever devised - The Beatdown. Featuring UFC Champion Lyoto Machida, MMA fighter Scottie Epstein and UFC fighter Todd Duffee.

I should preface the upcoming criticism by mentioning that I am a BIG fan of Michael Jai White and that one's first time tackling a new task often results in a hose with a few kinks. The recognition of potential is what's important and I hope he continues not only directing films, but films like this!

White makes his directorial debut in the form of a direct-to-video sequel to the 2008 hit. He also plays Case, a former MMA champ who's on probation and spends his time training young college students for The Beatdown: a 16-man elimination cage-tournament where the winner brings home 10K. His prospects include Tim (Todd Duffee), a student trying to help his financially-struggling mother; Zack (Alex Meraz, "The Twilight Saga"), an injured ex-boxer risking blindness; Justin (Scottie Epstein), a bullied comic-book aficionado; and Mike (Dean Guyer), a collegiate wrestler with a short fuse who's trying to come to terms with his estranged father. Linking it all together is Max (Evan Peters), the sole leftover from the first film, this time funding The Beatdown and holding it in Louisiana.

Unfortunately, the movie is marred by poor pacing and generally unlikable characters, except for Tim (who could be Dolph Lundgren's long-lost son), Case, Justin and Max. Though not the fault of the capable actors, Mike & Zach kinda come off as one-dimensional tools. Until the last 15 minutes anyway. I had no real expectations for this film until I read that White was directing, the fights were being choreographed by Larnell Stovall (who exceeded my high expectations with "Undisputed 3"), and a couple of reviews that boasted that this film "... beats the original in every way". Eh, not quite EVERY way.

"An angry mind is a narrow mind." Four teenagers who need an outlet begin to train with ex-UFC fighter Case (White). After one of them betrays the group it is up to the other three to get revenge at the "Beatdown." After liking the first one more then I thought I would I was looking forward to this one. While I did like this movie it was more of a remake then a sequel. Instead of the main characters dad dying he leaves his mom. Instead of the trainer getting in a fight with his brother and living alone he has a run in with the law...and lives alone. The main character liking a fellow fighters girl is in this one, along with a line about Kurt Cobain. There really is not much different in this movie, except the fighting is more prefessional. Saying all that though, I did like this movie. Overall, a near replica of the first one. If you liked that one you will like this one. I give it a B.

Would I watch again? - I don't know, mabye.

Not one who usually bashes movies. But people were right about the plot and character development being weak. The fights were ok not the greatest but pretty good considering it was a low budget movie.

Never Back Down 2 is very ambitious with overall believable characters and beautiful fight scenes. The filmmakers made the best of what they had and really tried to make a good film. They just needed more money. Michael Jai White stars with more Blood and Bone swagger as Case Walker, an ex-MMA star with a shaky past. He ends up training 4 MMA hopefuls for the upcoming Beatdown 2 which this time takes place in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I definitely noticed the difference and missed the Florida/California scenery from the first film. Max (Evan Peters) returns and is the glue that holds the two films together with his wide-eyed enthusiasm as the Dana White/Vince McMahon behind the new Beatdown. The 4 trainees range from decent to pretty good with their acting abilities. Alex Meraz as Zack plays the flashy pretty boy/mack daddy fighter role to the hilt and Scottie Epstein's Justin morphs very well from comic book nerd into MMA psychopath. Todd Duffee's Tim is the gentle giant you don't want to piss off and Dean Geyer's Mike is believable also as the mildly shy pretty boy with anger-management issues. I didn't really care for the Eve (Jillian Murray) character who came off more like a fighter groupie than a true love interest but how well are female characters developed in most of these movies? As I stated earlier, the fight scenes are beautiful and along with Jai White are my main reasons for buying and recommending this film. Also, Bai Ling, Keith Jardine, Heath Herring and Kimbo Slice aren't in it which is a great thing. MJW's direction compliments returning writer Chris Hauty's story. I just wish there was money involved other than the usual direct to dvd loot. I'm sick of seeing strip clubs, warehouses and vacant lots in MMA flicks.Read more ›

So I liked the first movie I thought I'd give the second a try. It was so bad the actors were not even second rate. The few good actors are brought down by the bad ones. One actor wears a wig for the first half but it's supposed to be real until he shaves it. The story line is just everywhere. There's only one original character. The story sucks so much they have to throw in T&A in every other scene to try and keep an audience but it was just horrible.

The only decent scenes were the few fight scenes.
