Yes, you read that correctly.

Let's see what a nationwide panel of film critics have to say about Never Back Down, which opens on March 14, 2008...

- Never Back Down is a compulsory guilty pleasure. Think: Save the Last Dance meets Fight Club meets 8 Mile meets YouTube. -- Buzzine Magazine

Just for Kicks

- A modest surprise: better acted than needed, better made than expected. -- Village Voice
