Never Back Down was directed by Jeff Wadlow. The movie follows a teenage boy, Jake, who causes trouble everyday, getting into fights and upsetting his mother. The death of his father caused him to completely change. After moving to Orlando, he decides to have a fresh start and become a better person but eventually finds his way back into fighting after being beaten up by a bully, Ryan. He decides to train at a gym to build on his strength and throughout this process, his instructor helps change him into a better person. I really liked this movie because it was about a boy who is my age and even though he was beaten up in front of half the school he decides to let it go and focus on building on himself, both physically and mentally. The action and drama contrast causes this movie to be very amusing. I recommend this movie for anyone above the age of 13 and I would rate it 9/10.
