Never Back Down Review


Bad
As Jake has an emotional breakdown and reveals his inner demons, his mentor listens with an attentive ear... as he browses the shelves for lettuce. That's right, the pivotal scene of Never Back Down takes place in the produce aisle of a grocery store. Did the filmmakers think audiences would take this movie seriously when the drama peaks as the characters are shopping for spinach and romaine?

Into The Blue Review


Terrible
I wonder what went through the studio exec's head when he found out about the release schedule of Into the Blue. It's a movie about fun in the Caribbean sun that's coming out while the Caribbean is in hurricane season. It's an extended swimsuit ad that's coming out when people won't be buying swimsuits.

Into the Blue isn't just a bad movie. It's an endless font of implausibility and boredom whose only redeeming quality is watching the his and hers sex symbols on the screen.
