Never Back Down 2: The Beatdown DVD Review

Synopsis: Behind closed doors of a seemingly normal college, the ultimate showdown in underground MMA fighting is being planned. Ex-MMA rising star Case Walker (Michael Jai White) trains four college-age fighters, each with their own individual obstacles. Case will instruct them to master the most mind-blowing fighting techniques and go head to head in the most punishing competition ever devised - The Beatdown. Featuring UFC Champion Lyoto Machida, MMA fighter Scottie Epstein and UFC fighter Todd Duffee.

Review: This movie is cool. Why do I say that?  It harkens back to the older days of martial arts action films.  I'm not a fan of this MMA fad, but I was definately into the martial arts films of the 1980s and early to mid-90s..we're talking Bloodsport, Kickboxer, Best of the Best etc.  After the late 1990s the martial arts film really went to the wayside.  We got a lot of Jet Li and Jackie Chan and some import films like Hero and House of Flying Daggers.  This sequel to Never Back Down is actually a fantastic harkening back to the films of yesterday.   Its basically centered around underground fighting in a college..its such an absurd idea, but so very entertaining!  This one is a total win.
