I'm watching Fighting Words With Mike Straka right now and Eddie Bravo is the guest this week. He said that Never Back Down 1 was bad and too much like the Fast and the Furious (I think we can all agree with that).

He said he's choreographing a lot of the fight scenes for the new movie and that it has an entirely new director. There are also a bunch of 10th planet jui jitsu guys in the movie as well he said. I for one am pretty excited to see if they can actually produce a great mma movie.

The writer and director will be key. Bas helped with the choreography in the first one, but good fight scenes don't make a movie. Hope for the best, I guess.

What was going on at the end there? I was so confused. Was that scripted or did some guy just run in and they decided to go with it?

Go see Warrior when it comes out, looks much better than any of these other fight movies, like Never Back Down, Fighter, Red Belt.

It's got Tom Hardy in it and some guy who looks like Chael Sonnen, oh and josh rosenthal.

That looks pretty good too. I'm interested to see if they can make these movies worth watching. I've been dying for a good mma movie.

Never back down was a terrible Hollywood style massacre but it did show the average meathead a bit of what MMA is about. If Eddie is involved with NBD2 it will hopefully show a more realistic side of things. A movie which is predominantly focused on the fighter rather than the BS highschool/college love story would be welcome.

Actually, I thought Never Back Down was okay to me. Yeah , it had that high school/ love story thing going on but I enjoy the fight scenes in the movie.

I liked Djimon Hounsou in NBD1 and Amber Heard is hot, but other than that ehh.

Amber Heard is stupidly hot. Let's get a nude scene in NBD2, lol. I'm sure I'm not the only one that would want that.
