  So much better than the first

| | See all thundergirl's reviews (2)

I have the first never back down on DVD and I was told by a friend to watch second movie. I found this movie absolutely great!! The acting was great, the story line was great and the emotions shared between the actors was great. This movie gives us a great understanding of different fighters and how they adapt to another sport. For example Zach is a boxer but he has to adapt to the life of a wrestler and martial arts other than just boxing. The movie kept me intriged all the way through and it kept me on the edge of my seat to what was going to happen next. Also this movie interpreted the emotions that are shared between Justin and Mike.
Overall this movie is great and I reccomend anyone who is thinking of buying it to just buy it! You wont be disopointed..

  It's better than a punch to the throat!

N.B.D.2. is a very good direct to DVD sequel to th 2008 MMA hit.
Although it has a imited budget and an even more limited story line the movie does axactly what you expect it to do. The film takes it time to tell it's back story with the odd bout of violence that leaves you hooked for the final beatdown.
The real star is Michael Jai White as the Sensei with his awesome Tekki Shodan Kata and his pull-up routines are muscle rippingly perfect.
Although the plot is basic it does have a good betrayal twist and this all leads nicely to the climatic battle that's well worth the wait.
Fists and feet fly and faces get mashed and justice is served in a very satisfactory conlusion.
Just like the original movie this is a guilty pleasure and if you like this kind of stuff it's well worth buying.
See if you like........

  Better than the first

First of all this is directed by one of the best martial artists in the world in Michael Jai White, gone are the barbie dolls and beach bum rich boy angsty lines, and tales of morality from the first, what you have here is an all round grimier movie, with better action that gives audience what they want, a fight movie , lots of training scenes, back street fights, and some hot women to boot

Better than the first by a mile

  Great film

Totally agree with the first reviewer. Bought this as really enjoyed the first and a fan of Michael Jai White recent martial art work. Storyline very simillar to the first and a couple of references aswell. I must admit the acting from the fighters was pretty good and some amazing fight scenes. Didn't think MJW was going to be in it much(as he directed it aswell) but was in it most of the time and was great. Some good camera angles aswell. Well done MJW and rest of cast.

  Pretty Good!!!

Never back down is one of my favourite films and when I saw they had made a second one I thought it would probably be a crappy sequel but had to watch it anyway. I surprisingly really really enjoyed this film, similar storyline to the first but a very good film, great fight sequences and great actors. Will definitely be buying this film!!
