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!

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.

The product arrived very quickly, boxed and packaged very well. The order was processed in less than 24 hours, which was very nice! Played great in my player, as this is one of my all time favorite movies. I have watched it many time, and still plays just as great as the very first time!

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.

The concept is solid and the execution is pretty good. The fight scenes are on point, although a far cry from true MMA fighting. It's a good action packed movie, but don't expect great acting. No academy awards offered here...

Kick-ass movie, one for the collection!! I found myself wanting to beat the hell out of that a-hole... why he was so popular was beyond me. He got his ass handed to him at the end and I LOVED IT!! Also, the trainer was awesome... I loved the ending especially!!!!!
