Never Back Down
Source: Catholic News Service
Pointless celebration of violent machismo in which a high school student (Sean Faris) moves to Florida with his widowed mother (Leslie Hope) and tennis champ brother (Wyatt Smith) where he turns to a fight coach (Djimon Hounsou) to train him in the technique of mixed martial arts after being beaten unconscious by the obnoxious boyfriend (Cam Gigandet) of the girl for whom he's fallen (Amber Heard). Director Jeff Wadlow's film, despite some high sounding phrases in the script, glamorizes brutal physical combat. Bloody fighting, a brief scene of same-sex kissing, underage drinking, frequent crude and crass language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
