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.

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 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.

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

It's a mindset that's summed up well when Ryan tells Jake, "You gotta give people what they want." Clearly, the filmmakers felt the same way. (pluggedin.com)

after about 20 minutes i realized i've seen this movie before, only it used to be called the karate kid. i only got two things out of this movie 1. i felt my testosterone levels rising turning me into a primal ape after which i ran outside and found the nearest man walking with a woman and beat the crap out of him to show that i had a bigger penis. 2. i just hate to rate a movie with Djimon Hounsou badly because i love that guy.

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.

Finally I did not give it up for second time and have seen this movie from the beginning to the very end. I do remember when I was kid and saw Bloodsport starring Jean-Claude van Damme, movie full of violence too and nevertheless I grow up as decent man as well. This is just like that Bloodsport but shooted to "meet nowadays needs" of nowadays audience. Switch off your brains. Otherwise mark it as 5/100

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.
