Overview

An outsider teen acclimating to a new school finds a home in a reclusive teenaged fight club in this drama from Cry_Wolf director Jeff Wadlow. Jake Tyler Sean Faris has just moved with his family to Orlando, FL. While Jake isn't exactly comfortable being the new kid in town, his younger brother, Charlie Wyatt Smith, is an aspiring professional tennis star who might just have what it takes to break big. But Charlie isn't the only talented athlete in the family, because Jake used to be something of a hotshot on the gridiron -- at least back home. Here in Orlando, Jake is considered something of a hothead thanks to his penchant for brawling. In an attempt to better fit in with his new classmates, Jake accepts flirtatious classmate Baja's Amber Heard invitation to a raucous party. There, the short-fused newcomer is lured into a fight and badly beaten by local bully Ryan McCarthy Cam Gigandet. But a beam of hope shines through the humiliation when a classmate who sees potential in the defeated fighter informs Jake of a local MMA Mixed Martial Arts program run by Jean Roqua Djimon Hounsou. Despite Jake's preconceived notions regarding MMA, he quickly discovers that it's not just another form of street fighting but a rich new art form that he longs to master. As Roqua takes Jake under his tutelage, it soon becomes apparent that in order to become a true MMA champion, Jake will have to learn patience, discipline, willingness, and reason. This isn't just a quest for revenge, but an opportunity for Jake to finally find out what kind of man he truly is.

    "Ya' Gotta Mix It Up!" ;)

    I'm not even a MMA fan... and I absolutely LOVE this movie!!! I must've watched it at least 10 + times after the first day I got it, I liked it so much. I wasn't even expecting anything special from this movie at all. Especially knowing it was a MMA movie. The back of the DVD and the description on this page summarizes it well. It's pretty much a little bit of "The Karate Kid" mixed with a little bit of "Fight Club." So if you like those movies (or just one or the other), I think you will definitely find some things in this movie entertaining.

    Before I couldn't STAND MMA. I seriously HATED it with a PASSION because I thought it was just so stupid! Watching a couple of sweaty, bald, fugly dudes rolling around on the ground inside a caged ring like idiots for how long God knows what...? What was so special and appealing about that?!? But this movie opened my eyes and showed me a little bit about the basics, and what this sport was/is all about!

    Yes, it's pretty violent--but hey, this is a Fight/MMA film. If you're not a Fight movie fan, of course you're not going to like it. If you're not a fan of this genre--move on. Stick to your Disney movies. Fight movies SERIOUSLY need to make a huge comeback. Not just with MMA, but with traditional martial arts as well. Just like The late 80s and early 90s when Fight movies were at their prime. How I miss those movies being taken seriously. Anyway, NON-MMA fans, give this movie a chance, just like I did. I think you'll be glad you did.

    With plenty of blood, spit, sweat, crazy and deadly "Beat-downs"... As well as....... EYE CANDY ALERT!! EYE CANDY ALERT!! EYE CANDY ALERT!! 'Sean Faris' (the male lead, Jake) looks EXACTLY like a young 'Tom Cruise.' Ryan, who is Jake's vicious and merciless nemesis... well, he is just... OMG... Those wash-board abs!! Those piercing and menacing blue eyes! That golden tan flesh! HAWT! HAWT! HAWT! *fans self* Ladies (and Gents) should not be disappointed in this area of the film, LOL. All of the characters are pretty spunky and have some interesting personalities and backgrounds, too. The MMA Master (or our 'Mr. Miyagi', I guess, if you will), 'Djimon Hounsou', who trains Jake throughout the movie was the PERFECT choice for this role. And how about this... There's an actual plot and a great lesson to be learned here. I certainly wasn't expecting that.

    Now, I consider "Never back Down" to be one of my all-time favorite Fight Movies in my collection. Oh, and about MMA--it's certainly not for everybody, but this movie pretty much breaks it down for you if you're interested in knowing at least little bit about the sport. I was not disappointed. Especially since I am currently studying -Aikido-. *dodges stones thrown* I know! I know! I know! Yep. TOTALLY. DIFFERENT. PLANET. I get it. But this movie showed me exactly how essential 'ground-work' is when it comes to mastering, re-mastering, and cross-training into various martial art styles.

    So heeey... I actually get it now! "Ya' gotta mix it up!!" ;)

    Love this movie

    It wasn't fantastic or life changing but it was good. The fight scenes were great and it had an amazing soundtrack. Its one of those movies you could watch a number of times and not get sick of it.
