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

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.

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

If you like mixed martial arts and sports,you'll love this movie. If not, then it won't seems as good. It has a really strong message about how everyone has their own fight, and you can't just quit, which I admired. But, the plot was lacking and predictable. The movie missed a great opportunity to put drama in the love triangle between Baja, McCarthy, and Tyler. It was touched upon, but not to its potential like in trailer. More of a thriller than a drama. Good movie, could've been better.

'Never Back Down' apes off of every single move in the fight film playbook (most notably 'The Karate Kid'), but with an added dose of obnoxious dude-bro appeal with its sex appeal and meathead characters.

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
