Jake (Faris), full of anger after his father's death, is just starting to find a place for himself at his new Orlando high school - until Ryan (Giagandet), head of an underground MMA fight club, picks Jake out as a prime opponent. After being trounced by Ryan in front of the entire school, Jake begins training under the firm, moral guidance of a MMA master (Hounsou), where he learns how to fight...and how to avoid a fight. But it becomes obvious that a rematch will be inevitable if Jake wants to stop Ryan and his bullying, once and for all.

Critics Consensus: Though not without its pleasures, Never Back Down faithfully adheres to every imaginable fight movie cliché.
Bloody fight film has heart, but it's no champion.
