Never Back Down

Never Back Down
Never Back Down is a film directed by Jeff Wadlow. Never Back Down had a worldwide gross of $37,138,292. This was an awesome movie! It a nail biter. I was constantly worried about what was going to happen next. The fight scenes were amazing, and the guys were incredibly riped! They had some nice bodies! But the guys weren't the only awesome things in the film, the way they viewed the movie was really cool. I know that doesn't explain it very well; but there are some parts in the film when the kids watched Youtube videos about the fight, and they way they showed the Youtube videos were really cool. I definitely recommend seeing this movie! It was really good!

The Fight
After the death of his father, Jake Tyler (Sean Faris) had gotten in a series of fights. He, his little brother Charlie, and mom move to a Orlando, Florida because Charlie has gotten a tennis scholarship. While at his new school, Jake stumbles upon a brutal fight where he meets his new best friend, Max Cooperman (Evan Peters), getting beat up. Max then invites Jake to a learn from a mixed martial arts teacher. Also Baja Miller (Amber Heard), invites him to a party. At the party Ryan McCarthy (Cam Gigandet), a local martial arts champion, challenges him to a fight. Ryan taunts him until he finally gives in. He is ultimatly defeated brutally by Ryan, who repeatedly beat him even though he was down. Baja becomes angry with Ryan, her boyfriend, because he continually beat Jake down just for the fun of it. Jakes decides to learn how to fight from Jean Roqua (Djimon Hounsou) so he can challenge Ryan to a rematch. Ryan finds out about a fight between Jake and three gang members. Ryan once again challenges Jake to a fight at The Beatdown, a local underground fight tournament, to prove that he is the better fighter. When Jake refuses the fight, Ryan begins a fight to infuriate Jack with Max, who ends up in the hospital. Jake fears for the lives of his friends and family so he agrees to The Beatdown. Jake and Ryan make it to the semi-finals in The Beatdown. Ryan ends up being disqualified so Jake taps out because the whole reason he joined in The Beatdown was to fight Ryan. He and Ryan end up having a vicious fight of their own in the parking lot. Jake ultimately wins earning the respect from students and Ryan.

The Cast
Sean Faris and Cam Gigandet do an awesome job starring in the film. Their fight scenes were incredible! The film also stars Amber Heard, Djimon Hounsou, and Evan Peters. Leslie Hope and Wyatt Henry Smith play Jake's mom and brother.
