"The ethical nitwittery of "fight so you don't have to fight again" and invocations of The Iliad in this context brazenly transform a dumb bone-cruncher into a putridly dissembling one." - Bill Weber

While Djimon Hounsou was quite good, the film lacked depth and feeling.

Whilst talking about fight-movies as such, there is only ONE movie worth mentioning above all.... and that movie is Kara-te Kid. The first one, not the 2 sequels and exceptionally NOT the 4th in the franchise. Revenge, action and purpose has always been 3 strong things in film but in this one it has a purpose. They kept it from the ring, above the law, withing the limits of human strength. And they brought the "new" art of MMA into movies wich I myself found very interesting. Especially Djimon H

Karate Kid, this is not. From the clinically insane mother and the alcoholic father to the protagonist's loser friend and loose love interest, just about every character is intensely unlikeable. They stuffed in some of the worst music imaginable, too, including a rapper raping Daft Punk. Also, considering how the fights are based on realism, everyone having an endless gas tank is dumb. There are definitely worse put together movies out there, though.

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.

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.
