Format: DVD
While the die-hards of mixed martial arts sometimes claim that MMA has deep roots in cinema, going back to Enter the Dragon, the very first film to actually be produced and marketed on a wide scale as an "MMA action movie" is in fact "Never Surrender." Explicitly centered around cage-fighting and featuring no less than six well-known competitors, this is clearly the first feature to completely exploit the combat sport, albeit with poor results. Since this one's release, the subgenre has had a lot to make up for, and I think we have star/writer/MMA fanboy Hector Echavarria to blame for it.

The story: The world's top fighter (Echavarria, Unrivaled) is lured into a lucrative fighting tournament, only to discover the sadistic nature of its promoter (Patrick Kilpatrick, Death Warrant).

Starting with this film, ol' Hector became the premier supplier of direct-to-video MMA action yarns for several years. While the half-dozen or so features of this sort that he's made haven't resonated with viewers, this one feels like the very worst. There are the old shortcomings - bad fight scenes, goofy acting, and an illogical story - but what will probably ruin it for most people is the ceaseless celebration of Echavarria's persona. He is the idealized hero in overdrive, a "Marty Stu" if ever there was one, whose only flaws (as a fighter, lover, and all-around great guy) are that he's too trusting of random opportunities and can't be in more than one place at the same time.

OK, now I know I've said this before...but this has to be among the WORST movies I've EVER seen. The acting is pitiful, ESPECIALLY the voice overs (since some of the MMA fighters featured don't speak english, or do so with a very heavy accent). The acting is so bad in fact it was almost like a softcore porn movie on Cinemax. The main "love interest" looks so trashy, well....I couldn't tell if she was supposed to be a junkie or a drag queen. Before a fight, there's a quick cutaway to a CGI of the octagon, and then a "Versus" screen, like watching pre-fight info of a UFC fight, or before the first round of a video game. The fighting is also REALLY badly choreographed, falling short of even the worst Jackie Chan movie.

In all honesty, if you "must" see an MMA, see Never Back Down.

"Never Surrender" should instead have been called "Never Direct This Crapfest"

The way this movie was marketed makes you think it stars some of MMA's elite. Instead it has breif cameos that makes you wonder what the loser who made this movie is blackmailing them with to get them to appear in it. The fight scenes are pathetic and the "star" of the film is worthless. I only spent 99 cents to rent this and it was a huge waste of money, not to mention time. Save your eyes the torture and avoid this piece of CRAP at all costs.

First off, this movie is not for everyone. Hardcore MMA fans will be stocked with disappointment. And not for any kids under 18. This movie should have been rated X, under Softcore Porn.

Big name MMA fighters head the front of the cover, but the main actor is Hector Echavarria. And if you haven't noticed yet, he's also the Director, Producer, and Writer. Now that's a really big mistake in my book.

This movie was enjoyable for me. Even though the fight scenes were a real disappointment. No realism. Everything was so fake. Their movements were so slow. It was plan laughable. Basically, I was saying WTF, after the first few minutes. But then I cleared my mind, trying to be open minded, thinking that this was only a movie. And that I was watching a bad acting softcore porn movie with some underground fight scenes in it. That's when I started to enjoy the movie.

So beware before buying or renting this movie.

Seriously, I picked up this movie because I love MMA. Don't make the same mistake I did - this movie is one of the most terrible movies I've ever seen (not just MMA films, all movies!!!)

The acting is awful, the main character is so wooden and terrible at delivering his lines you want to punch him in the face. And you know you'd get away with it because the fighting in this movie is pitifully terrible. The UFC and mma fighters in this should be ashamed of themselves for not telling the director what an awful film he was making. Hell, Rampage just shows up for a fight outside a bar, then leaves, WTF??? In no way shape or form does the fighting in this represent what MMA really is! It's just a bad story about underground fighting, but there's lots of sex, cause you know, that's what MMA is right? Sex and fighting? It's so bad, there's even a sex/fighting montage (if you find that erotic, get your head examined).

DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE, IT IS SO BAD IT WILL ACTUALLY LOWER YOUR INTELLIGENCE

It reminds me of those martial arts movies I used to watch when I was a kid that had no story whatsoever and was filled with punching and kicking scenes throughout the movie. This movie is just like that, terrible story and full of fighting scenes that aren't even that good. Even that star playing the role of Diego, who is he? I've never seen him before in MMA. Why is he starring an MMA movie? Moreover, this movie fools you by having top MMA champions on its cover such as Silva, GSP, Penn, and Rampage. I was surprised to see them act in such a low budget film.

In conclusion, don't buy this movie. Go watch Red Belt or Never Back Down if you want a good MMA movie.
