This story uses a bit of recycled “Rocky” plot lines, including the one from “Rocky 3” when Rocky wins a race on the beach at the end of training against his former foe-turned-coach Apollo Creed. In this case, the trainer is Jean Roqua, played convincingly by Djimon Hounsou. The underdog is Jake Tyler (Sean Faris) who loses a fight to Ryan McCarthy (Cam Gigandet) and is seeking to prove his worth by facing McCarthy again. The story is believable enough and works ok, but the strong language and underage drinking, in addition to the violence, prevents us from awarding our Dove Seal to the film. Several very scantily clad young women dressed in bikinis also rates a two in our nudity rating, just missing the three mark which would also have caused us not to award our Seal to the film. “Rocky 3” received our Dove Seal. Unfortunately, “Never Back Down” needed to be less bold in the content area.
