Never Back Down 2: The Beatdown

1

A quartet of neckless types preparing to compete in underground fight competition

Black Dynamite’s Michael Jai White goes Mr Miyagi in this cheesy DTV sequel to the 2008 brawler. The plot’s suitably bare-boned – amid numerous rock-soundtracked training montages, we shadow a quartet of neckless types preparing to compete in underground fight competition The Beatdown. As hyphenated writer-director-star, White’s a rugged ringleader, but his charges get lumbered with soap-opera storylines (gay dad, busted retina, poor mum). Extras are two ropy deleted scenes and a lazy commentary.
