Case Walker: Okay, stop. Gloves off.
[Taj and Creech take off their gloves]
Case Walker: Okay, question. Why do you wrap your hands in boxing and MMA?
Creech: So you don't sprain your wrist.
Taj Mahale: Or break your hands.
Case Walker: Exactly. That's because you don't know how to punch. You don't know how to punch without hurting yourself. Not your opponent, hurting your damn self. News flash, guys.

User Reviews

While the movie has its share of flaws, it's a huge step up from its predecessor
17 May 2021 | by BrooklynsmagicmikeSee all my reviews

I avoided this movie for awhile due to the massive and disappointing failure which was Never Back Down 2. Outside of Michael Jai White and them bringing back Evan Peters I found literally zero traits redeeming about it and literally hated the movie.

Back to Never Back Down 3, I actually enjoyed the movie and thought it was worlds better the second one. However with that said, this one was far from perfect.

First outside of Esai Morales who I thought was phenomenal in his role. The acting and dialogue was painfully brutal. Another problem I had with this film is the pacing is extremely inconsitent. Lastly the movie had a lot of subplots that literally added no value and went nowhere.

There were a lot of good redeeming traits though. The action was very good, the visuals were decent for movie on this low of a budget, and it contained just enough emotion to keep the viewer engaged to what was going on and the characters.

I would nevertheless though, only recommend this film to die hard Michael Jai White or mma fans. I can't find the average viewer getting any enjoyment out of this otherwise.
