Never Back Down 2008 110 PG-13 2.5 out of 5 ducks
Iowa high school kid Jake is an angry lad (dad died from a DUI crash after drinking). He's a star on the football field, driven somewhat by his anger, and knocks a kid out with a single punch for a comment about dead dad. After the game, Jake tells the others he's moving to Florida (his brother Charlie got a scholarship to play tennis there). At his new school, Jake's a clever guy for knowing the answer to a Greek mythology question, getting a look from girl Baja; they chat. Jake tries to interrupt a fight, with mixed success; the one kid in the fight is Max. Jake asked about the fight, and Max says it was a sanctioned fight; he also knows Jake from his Iowa football field fight (video was online). Baja invites Jake to a party at Ryan's, which escalates to an organized fight; Ryan lets him know he is there to fight, period. Ryan goads Jake into fighting (dad comment), and the only way to win is quit or be knocked out; Ryan won't back down, so he's knocked out. Max takes Jake to the fight training center, "365", run by Roqua; he trains Jake, on the condition of no outside fights. Baja tries to apologize for the fight at the party, but he blows her off. Jake beats up three guys for honking their car horn at him; Max records the fight, Roqua learns of it and stops training (he fought outside). Roqua backs down and trains Jake again, they talk, and we learn Roqua's brother died in a bar fight, and dad disowned Roqua. Baja has dumped Ryan, Ryan fights Jake in a school bathroom, and they opt to take their battle to an underground tournament (Ryan is the current champ). Jake trains, opts not to fight, and Ryan beats him up again. Jake gets mad and goes to the tournament, but Ryan is disqualified, so Jake drops out. Ryan attacks him outside, someone says Jake's ribs are broken (earlier fight), and Ryan tries to use that advantage, and ends it with a kick to Ryan's face. Roqua closes the school to make amends with his dad, Max and Jake hang out, Jake nods to Ryan, and Baja kisses Jake. Moving film reel
