Critic Reviews of "Never Back Down"Entertainment WeeklyMarch 19, 2008
Movie is dopey. And with its emphasis on stupid violence, xylophone abs, and getting yourself on YouTube, it's yet another product that makes you feel bad about today's youth culture.Ebert & RoeperMarch 17, 2008
I laughed so much at the litany of clichés that I finally had to admit I was entertained from start to finish by this cheesy knock-off.Chicago TribuneMarch 14, 2008
It's a little Karate Kid, a smidge of Fight Club...a lot of The O.C. (evil boy Gigandet played an evil boy on that series), and presto: probable hit.Seattle TimesMarch 14, 2008
Towering above all is Hounsou, whose performance grants Never Back Down a measure of dignity.San Francisco ChronicleMarch 14, 2008
The fights are parceled out at intervals during the last half, all leading to a climactic battle. But it's hard to build suspense when you know it is coming and you know who will win.ReelViewsMarch 14, 2008
This movie isn't bad just because it follows a formula slavishly but because it does so without verve or passion.Common Sense MediaDecember 31, 2010
Bloody fight film has heart, but it's no champion.GuardianOctober 18, 2008
A naive and truly obnoxious movie about the world of Mixed Martial Arts.Austin ChronicleOctober 18, 2008
While the character of Jake isn't an emotionally taxing one, Faris has his moments, especially in a low-key scene in which he attempts to explain why his character is full of rage.The Scorecard ReviewAugust 27, 2008
Here's what I hoped for: someone to root for, someone to root against, an inspiring coach, some eye candy and, of course, training montages. I got what I wanted.Groucho ReviewsAugust 05, 2008
A sort of teenage Fight Club, complete with daddy issues, Never Back Down is a slight refinement of the sort of picture that was ascendant in the '80s... [Blu-Ray]Screen InternationalJuly 23, 2008
A generic, violent underdog story that pays a lot of lip service to non-violence when its characters aren't busy kicking and punching the tar out of each other.
