When the footage showing Case Walker fighting the cops from the second movie is shown online and on the news, it's showing the point of view from the movie, not the video Max took from his car. See more »
And that is just friendly advice. You do know that villains never think they'll back down. Until they do, then they not only think it, they actually do it. But apart from the obvious and the predictability what else is there? The fight scenes of course and they are pretty well staged. Though that shouldn't be surprising if you have seen Michael Jai Whites previous work before.
Characters try to shine through, but not every beat of the story or of their development works well. It means well, but that doesn't always go down that well. Well enough of that, because most likely you watch this or consider watching this because of the action involved and there you won't be disappointed (unless you expect Tony Jaa ... wait he also is in it. But just in a cameo role! More juice and fight is in the "Chocolate" star, also getting a short appearance in this).
So while I haven't seen the previous Never Back Down, this is based on, you can watch it and still enjoy it too
