I'm watching Never Back Down for the first time right now. If the first 15 minutes are anything to go by I may need to go on a murderous rampage soon

You'll be on a rampage soon enough.... Seriously man, switch it off. I watched it with my girlfriend and the highlight of the movie for me was when we paused for the take away guy. I got bored and came on her she watched it through and all she had to say at the end was "That bad guy was hot!".

I was thinking the same thing... Perhaps clarification is in order

BTW- 30-45 minutes in now and it hasn't gotten any better

It's funny...someone on the set recorded that scene with a camera phone and it's currently being passed off all over the internet as a real fight...people are gullible.

^^ LOL

Alright so I'm done watching the movie now. I actually somehow made it through the whole thing. I gotta say it's everything I expected it to be as far as cheesiness and suckiness factors go.

One thing I will say is that Djimon Hounsou still showed in small parts of this movie that he's a great actor. There were very tiny spots in the movie when he shined. Unfortunately for him the movie was crap, but I could see how the script could have been slightly appealing.

Ah, I had a coworker show me that fight. I assumed it was real because I was smart enough not to watch Never Back Down

Now I feel violated (start playing The Crying Game music) having seen part of that horrible horrible movie.

From someone who trains in mma, this movie was a disgrace for everything mma is. They made it appeal to a bunch of retarded ****** teens that watch the hills and the oc and other stupid rich kid shit like that.

I think the whole movie would have been better if they guy got his ass kicked again at the end, cuz I don't care who you are, you don't learn all that shit and become that good that ****** fast. it just doesn't happen. PLEASE DON'T MAKE A SEQUEL!!!

If they do I might just have to pull an ICP, become a juggalo so I can walk through The Hills and beat down a rich boy.


Although I do love it when these rich kids come to my gym after they watch the movie and think they can fight and I get to spar and roll with them and shoot their confidence out of the sky, its SO satisfying

This movie is to MMA what Fast and the Furious was to legit racing.

I remember after Fast and the Furious came out (1-3) there seemed to be an increase in kids with their hand-me-down Camry's and Accords with big fart-can mufflers, nozzle lights, massive non-functional picnic table wings, etc. Hopefully this movie won't spawn a bunch of kiddies thinking they are some justified unstoppable asswhoopers.

I hate to admit it, but it was better than I thought. This doesn't mean I will watch it again or anything, but heres why. Th movie was so predictable with it" karate-kid wanabe-ness" that it was getting really irritating,. Then the ending didn't go the way a karate kid movie would have, and that actually let me feeling semi-happy. I walked out of this movie halfway through in the theater, but my best friend enjoys torturing me & claimed to be enjoying it when we left , and made me promise to watch it when it came out on DVD.

I seriously liked that movie! Not the best but DEFINITELY not the worst.

The movie is obviously hollywoodized but it has to be because non-MMA fans don't appreciate what we fans can appreciate.

Plus the main character girl, Baja, is like the hottest girl ever so you can't go wrong there.
