"OMfG. These MMA masters should be embarrassed for getting duped into lending their awesomeness to such a lame movie.
I watched this last night and it was a chunk of my life I'll never get back.
The fight action isn't even laughable.....it's so bad you just sit there and go "wtf?!" And our favorite MMA stars are reduced to corny cameos and choreographed (and very brief) "street fights" that will leave you so underwhelmed you'll immediately need to pop in a UFC DVD just to reassure yourself everything is ok.
Women are raped, treated as objects and humiliated in the tackiest possible way. And not to be ignorant, but who the h*** is this Echevarria guy? This movie looks like an attempt to fulfill his own personal fantasies, because our MMA stars are secondary to his laughable MMA posing and gratuitous sex scenes. Yeah I know 13 year old boys might like it, but knowing that kids that age may end up getting hold of this, they could've left out the rape stuff. There are no fights even worth watching.
Run away from this heap of trash as fast as you can.
Don't be fooled.

"The way this movie was marketed makes you think it stars some of MMA's elite. Instead it has breif cameos that makes you wonder what the loser who made this movie is blackmailing them with to get them to appear in it. The fight scenes are pathetic and the "star" of the film is worthless. I only spent 99 cents to rent this and it was a huge waste of money, not to mention time. Save your eyes the torture and avoid this piece of CRAP at all costs."

"First off, this movie is not for everyone. Hardcore MMA fans will be stocked with disappointment. And not for any kids under 18. This movie should have been rated X, under Softcore Porn.
Big name MMA fighters head the front of the cover, but the main actor is Hector Echavarria. And if you haven't noticed yet, he's also the Director, Producer, and Writer. Now that's a really big mistake in my book.
This movie was enjoyable for me. Even though the fight scenes were a real disappointment. No realism. Everything was so fake. Their movements were so slow. It was plan laughable. Basically, I was saying WTF, after the first few minutes. But then I cleared my mind, trying to be open minded, thinking that this was only a movie. And that I was watching a bad acting softcore porn movie with some underground fight scenes in it. That's when I started to enjoy the movie.
So beware before buying or renting this movie."
This movie made me cry....I miss my $20....

"OK, now I know I've said this before...but this has to be among the WORST movies I've EVER seen. The acting is pitiful, ESPECIALLY the voice overs (since some of the MMA fighters featured don't speak english, or do so with a very heavy accent). The acting is so bad in fact it was almost like a softcore porn movie on Cinemax. The main "love interest" looks so trashy, well....I couldn't tell if she was supposed to be a junkie or a drag queen. Before a fight, there's a quick cutaway to a CGI of the octagon, and then a "Versus" screen, like watching pre-fight info of a UFC fight, or before the first round of a video game. The fighting is also REALLY badly choreographed, falling short of even the worst Jackie Chan movie.
In all honesty, if you "must" see an MMA, see Never Back Down.
"Never Surrender" should instead have been called "Never Direct This Crapfest""
