Picture from Never Back Down


It seems too good to be true when a hot babe (Amber Heard) invites new kid Jake Tyler (Sean Faris) to a party --and it is. Instead of being a guest, it turns out he's only there to act as a punching bag for the girl's tough-guy boyfriend (Cam Gigandet). Determined to get even with the bully, Jake finds a mentor (Djimon Hounsou) and starts training in Mixed Martial Arts.

MPAA Rating PG-13 for mature thematic material involving intense sequences of fighting/violence, some sexuality, partying and language -- all involving teens.
Theatrical Release March 13, 2008
Cast Sean Faris, Djimon Hounsou, Amber Heard, Cam Gigandet.
