Additionally, Revolt also doesn"t appear to have sầu any direct connection to lớn the movies before it in terms of characters or story, meaning that unless a surprise cameo by Michael Jai White or Evan Peters is being kept under wraps, Revolt will be the most standalone entry in the franchise. Of course, that isn"t really a problem with the Never Back Down series specifically. This is because, even when the films occasionally cốt truyện one or two of the same characters, they don"t have all that much direct connection.

Never Bachồng Down focused on a high school kid with anger issues learning lớn temper his rage through MMA, while The Beatdown followed a whole new phối of characters. Despite Evan Peters" returning from the first film, the two movies mostly stood alone. No Surrender re-centered its focus on White"s character Case Walker, the MMA mentor of The Beatdown, returning for an upcoming fight in Thái Lan, but the film was enough of a singular work that it didn"t rely on viewers seeing either of its predecessors either. What they really had in common was their shared focus on MMA, with the latter two especially really hitting the mark with excellent action scenes.
