In Between Very Good and Excellent, Definitely an awesome Jai White Classic
1 April 2018 | by nims-1975See all my reviews

Never Back Down: No Surrender is an In Between Very Good and Excellent Michael Jai White Martial Arts film. This film also has an excellent cast, Michael Jai White as Case Walker, Josh Barnett as Brody James, Gillian White as Myca Cruz, Esai Morales as Hugo Vega, Stephen Quadros as Matty Ramos and Nathan Jones as Caesar Braga. This film also has a small appearance by Tony Jaa. The 3rd Never Back Down film, Never Back Down: No Surrender also is a tense Martial Arts Thriller just like the sequel Never Back Down 2: The Beatdown and the fighting and storyline of the film is also much better than the first Never Back Down film. Michael Jai Whites acting as Case Walker was excellent. His character was a very tough, non nonsense fighter who was also very caring and friendly. Josh Barnetts acting as Brody James was also excellent and I also liked his character very much. Gillian Whites acting as Myca Cruz was also excellent. Her character was a very kindhearted, caring, loving and empathetic woman. Esai Morales acting as Hugo Vega was also excellent. His character was a very loud, greedy and manipulative businessman. Stephen Quadroses acting as Matty Ramos was also excellent. His character was also a trainer, who had his misunderstandings of Case Walker but eventually got rid of those misunderstandings and was friendly with Case Walker. Nathan Joneses acting as villain Caesar Braga was also excellent. His character was a psychotic, insane villain. The only thing that I think stopped this film from being an excellent film is that I would have loved to seen a bit more fighting from Josh Barnetts character Brody James. Other than that, this film is awesome and should not be missed.
