Had to watch it in class, it was better then what I thought it would be. The bad thing is that only one thing kept my attention through out the whole movie; Cam Gigandet.

A computer made this movie, and it didn't even try. I saw it on a bad movies night with a friend, and it wasn't even good enough for that setting.

Maybe it's just a genre picture, but scene after scene in Never Back Down displays vitality and wit. This is the year's first good-looking and fully enjoyable American movie.

You can say what you like about this being a Karate Kid rip-off (and it would all be true), but you can't deny that this is a well-made, well-acted, stylish ass-kicking beatdown of a film. The young actors are hot, look the part, and have great chemistry together. The fight scenes are adrenaline-packed and bone-crunching. You get your training montages, your family scenes, menacing baddie, girlfriend... it's textbook stuff, but rarely is it executed so well. To be enjoyed, with popcorn aplenty.

It beats around the classic bushes of "The Karate Kid" and a bit of "Rocky" with none of what makes those films classics. To compare them would be like comparing a fantastic marinaded steak to a McDonalds hamburger - but who doesn't want that mushed patty once in a while? Actually, "NBD" works for the same audience that likes "You Got Served" and "Stomp the Yard." The acting isn't terrible, the fight sequences are decent, and it's overall entertaining, but it's not any good. It's junk food.

This is the payoff for the fact that MMA has exploded in mainstream culture. When I saw it with Obby, the first thing that came to mind was "Dawson's Creek meets mixed-martial arts", and my opinion of it hasn't really improved. Hounsou plays a compelling character, though.

Had a few decent one liners and some nice fights, but the rest of the movie was so detached from reality it should have been set in Middle Earth.

This movie won't let me hate it. When I first saw it I rated it below average, but now the more I think about it, the more I like it. This is not a great film. No, it is a movie that's sometimes nonsensical, sometimes unintentional hilarious, with a possibly hypocritical message. It's like a party that eventualy goes to shit. Could have been better but it's still a party, and they clearly had fun in this stylish film. Almost ashamed to give this a 75 but I was entertained, despite the flaws.

Another cliché filled sports flick. Everything is seen before, but it does look really good. Technically it is great and there is some solid acting as well. And then there is Cam Gigandet. In yet another attempt to be accepted as the world's worst actor he imitates Brad Pitt from Fight Club down to every detail and then turns the insanity up by 500 %. He sucks as usual but he is very entertaining and has an impressively low body fat percentage.
