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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
