Really bad!!!
This movie was so disappointing. It was rocky/some karate movie. There are more cut scenes of them training than talking about football and fighting. I had a felling i was watching rocky origins or something like that. Even part 2 was better, real disappointment!!! If you would like to watch rocky 4 or 5 with worst acting and less interesting scenes then watch this movie if not don't waste your time. You cant even compere it to first green street movie its like you are watching something else. I don't get why didn't they stick with that kind of thing and now when they saw that they did it wrong (talking about 2nd part) they tried to get back on feet, but failed miserably (this movie) so sad. :(
The hooligan version of Yuri Boyka (?)
The truth is that this part of the trilogy Green Street is not like the previous movies. It's completely different from the other two parts, especially the first. This film doesn't care about the violence between the football fans and its bad consequences. The movie is just showing us some people, who are training to compete in an underground fighting tournament. Of course the leading actor is looking for revenge about his brother's murder, but the viewer doesn't really care about it.

I enjoyed a lot Scott Adkins in the movie. I prefer him with tattoos, beards and more wild style (I'm talking about Yuri Boyka in Undisputed 2, 3) but he was enough good here too. I like his style of fighting and the way he trains his team in this movie. Definitely, there is a lot of fighting scenes and that's why this is not a dull movie.

If you are looking for an action movie with people kicking some asses all the time, this film is a good choice, without thinking. Watch it. But if you want to see a drama like Green Street Hooligans 1, you won't be satisfied.
Adkins Nailed it!!!
An old firm leader returns to Green Street for revenge after receiving a call that his little brother was killed, but is he able to cope with a new type of hooliganism and can he find his killer? If you see Green Street 3: Never Back Down on it's own and not just as another straight to DVD sequel you will definitely appreciate it more and the only way to make a sequel or a movie at least enjoyable is by having Scott Adkins in it and the guy does a pretty cool job in here and Spencer Wilding as Mason was a pretty good casting choice and the fight sequences with Adkins were really cool. Just watch it and make up your own decision!!!
Adkins career will survive this ... barely
The astonishing performance of Scott Adkins in Undisputed 3 (2010) solidly established him as the most charismatic of the current group of Seagal/Van Damme wannabees, and "the" one to watch. Well, there is an exception to every rule, and Green Street 3 is that exception. The film opens with one of the slickest intros ever. Before the credits roll, two thugs walk into a gym and pick a fight with the owner, Adkins, reasons unknown. The resulting martial arts action lasts about 30 seconds and ends with both hoods on the floor. It is poetry. It is also the very last time in the entire film the viewer will feel as though anything worthwhile is taking place on screen. Perhaps the big giveaway was that even die-hard fans of Green Street 1 (actually a very solid movie) were unaware there was ever a "Green Street 2." So, the arrival of GS3, even with the aforementioned Adkins (whose career, we verily believe, will survive this film) was clearly Hubris on the part of the producers, dragging the corpse of an already-dead franchise right onto the outskirts of zombie-town. At least it is uniform, that is to say, uniformly awful. The plot has something to do with the notion that overweight, inebriated, "soccer thugs" have taken to settling their many differences by (not making this up! really!) pit fighting. Adkin's character learns that his brother died, under mysterious circumstances, in one such fight and sets about finding justice by inserting himself directly into the action. OMG is this bad! Even the final fight scene, where Adkins gets to go nuclear on the guy who actually killed his brother, is shot as though the director was still debating whether the film was meant to be action or social satire. Adkins' Manchester accent is acceptable, but if he had used his wonderful Russian growl (Boyko in Undisputed) the film would have been that much more interesting. Kacey Barnfield, from the also-current I SPIT ON YR GRAVE 2, is the eye-candy in the story, and, in fairness, steals all her scenes. Which, for this film, is a misdemeanour, and most definitely not a felony.
Scott Adkins the movie?
This was even worse than Green Street 2 and that was pretty bad. I did however enjoy Scott Adkins in this movie. The man has some incredible skills. I did prefer him as Yuri Boyka (The most complete fighter in the world) and this was nowhere near that performance however a few nifty moves but him at-least a little watchable in the movie.

The football is just a tiny background on this movie which was what Green Street was all about. You don't even see a player kick a ball and there's only one tiny scene with the GSE at a game. They should of left Green Street out of this movie and just made one of those low budget fighting movies we see every year.
It shouldn't be called "Green Street Hooligans?
Not even close to "Green Street Hooligans". It doesn't show the life of real casuals and firms like second and especially first part. It's good action movie but it's not the real "Green Street Hooligans" movie. It would be more realistic if it's about central European Hool teams which are just like this. They all train some kind of martial arts and they have fights similar to this. But "Green Street" is about UK casuals and their way of life which is not even close like this. This is more closer to "Never Back Down".

I like the cast and the fighting scenes which are well done. So my grade is 8 (9 for the movie and 7 because it's not "Green Street")
This movie rocks, plus it has...get ready for this - SIX training montages!
Searching for answers about his brother's murder, Danny (Adkins) returns to Green Street and his old Firm (apparently a collection of soccer hooligans who support a certain team) after some time away. If it's one thing the GSE, or Green Street Elite, like to do, it's brawl. But the brawling went too far, and Danny is mad. He's also disappointed that the once-triumphant GSE has decayed and is no longer on top. So he takes second in command, Gilly (Doolan), and whips him and the Firm into shape with a comprehensive training regimen. Meanwhile, Danny and DCI Jones (Ansah) are at odds with how to deal with murder and hooliganism in the Firm (s). In order to get close to the truth, Danny has to now fight in brutal, no-holds-barred group Punchfighting free-for-alls with various other UK Firms. He also finds time for love with beautiful barmistress Molly (Barnfield). The inevitable final battle eventually takes place with arch-baddie Mason (Wilding), and there are some twists and turns along the way to justice…but will Danny get there in one piece? Find out today! We loved Green Street 3, and we're happy that the franchise was re-purposed from an Elijah Wood drama to a Scott Adkins Punchfighter in two easy steps. Notice they took out the word "Hooligans" from the title. Kind of like how Rambo III (1988) should be First Blood III, but who's counting? Anyway, GS3 is everything this kind of movie should be, and perhaps just a bit more. It relies on tried and true 80's traditions to come out with a completely winning formula. Hey, why mess with perfection? The filmmakers had the wisdom to realize this when so many others don't. That's just one reason why GS3 delivers the goods in spades.

Notably, GS3 would totally work as a drama if all the fighting was taken out. It has that gray-skies, "kitchen sink"-style drama the British are so good at - what we call Brit Grit - it just so happens that they added Punchfighting and brawling to the mix, to excellent effect. Fan favorite Scott Adkins is in his element and in top form, and the rest of the cast is top-notch as well. The cinematography is effective and non-junky looking, thankfully. Awesomely, the score by Paul Arnold and Andrew Barnabas is synth-drenched and you can't help but recall the golden 80's. The movie even ends on a freeze-frame. As if that wasn't enough, one Leavon Archer contributes two Totally 80's-style songs, "Pushing Back" and "Trouble", further reinforcing the coolness.

And there ought to be 80's-style songs, as there are - get ready for this - SIX training montages. We haven't seen this many training montages since Rocky IV (1985). We love a good training montage, and we give the movie a lot of credit for having the guts to do this and not caring what anybody thinks. If the music wasn't good and we weren't invested in the story and Scott Adkins wasn't involved, it might not have worked, but it totally does. We wanted to get in shape like Gilly and the gang and we were cheering. Also, they PRACTICE their head-butting technique on the heavy bag. And Gilly goes into Punchfighting brawls wearing a sweater and a collared shirt. Only in the UK, we guess.

So wipe away your depression, grab a few pints, and enter the Punch-brawling (yet another new term?) world of Green Street 3. You'll be glad you did.
This should have been cancelled for play long before it became a franchise
STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning

Danny (Scott Adkins) turned his back on football violence long ago, and now devotes his life to mixed martial arts fighting, until he learns of the death of his little brother. Determined to find out who is responsible, he returns back to his old stomping ground and sets about trying to turn the new 'firm' from flabby, beer swilling no hopers to the top boys they once were. But along the way, he finds everything is not as it seems.

More 'repellent, brain-numbing bilge' then...obviously the first, direct to DVD sequel to 2005's Green Street did well enough that some bright spark decided a second instalment was needed, with martial arts star Scott Adkins in the lead role. Directed by James Nunn, who previously helmed the infinitesimally superior Tower Block, there is at least a little more meat on the bones and less of a boorish hooliganism love in here, but it still can't help but feel like a meaningless, decidedly odd way to spend film making money.

As others have noted, it seems to have moved away from the original street corner/back alley street fighting and seems to focus more on professional looking fighting (which may explain Adkins in the lead role), with constant references to 'how it's all a lot more organized and sophisticated' now, which further shows how far from the original source material it's strayed. It's filled, as well, with plenty of laughable slow motion, opera drenched 'men marching in to battle' moments and Rocky wannabe training montages. And Adkins is a wooden lead. This series should have been kicked to the touch lines long before it even tried to become a franchise. **
Pointless Sequel
The original Green St didn't need a sequel but we got one all the same and to be fair STAND YOUR GROUND was watchable down to the fact it was unintentionally funny . After all it's not every day you watch a film entirely filmed in an American prison trying to convince its audience that it's set in Britain . To be fair this follow is probably mindful of this hence we get constant establishing shots showing us we are indeed in a cold and cloudy London . This unfortunately is the only thing the film manages to achieve

NEVER BACK DOWN is a cynical exercise in marketing a film as a sequel to another film it has absolutely no connection with . There's no reason what so ever for the words " Green " " Street " or 3 to prefix NEVER BACK DOWN and in reality could easily be a star vehicle for Jean Claude Van Damme since it revolves around martial arts rather than unsophisticated fists and boots

The need to showcase martial arts is what the film concentrates on and as other people have pointed out explanation and exposition is sacrificed to show the protagonists fighting skill . From the outset we get a dialogue free sequence that ends with a couple of heavies getting a good slapping . We also get a long sequence of ramping , ie constant fast motion followed by slow motion most famously seen in 300 . In short it's a film of style over substance that won't appeal to anyone who is after a dramatic movie
