Teller is appreciably committed to the character, but he's only given one note to play, his full-bodied passion wasted on a movie that would rather win on points than go for the knockout.November 15, 2018 | Rating: C | Full Review…
Younger jacks up the action in the last third, but the air goes out of a fight movie when you can see the next jab coming.November 15, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
Bleed for This is still worth seeing, despite its familiar trappings.
Bleed For This is twelve rounds of tedium, a boring boxing movie that draws most of its strength from memories of other, better experiences.
A solid, but unremarkable drama.
No flatfoot, no knockout, writer-director Ben Younger's "Bleed for This" wins on points.

Jun 04, 2018True story of boxer Vinny Pazienza who overcomes a tragedy to return to the ring. It has many been there seen it before moments but Miles Teller is wonderful as is Hinds, Eckhart and Sagal! Worth watching! 06-02-2018Christopher O Super Reviewer
Sep 26, 2017Bleed for This adds to a long line of boxing films success not for its fighting, but for its unbelievable story of courage and resistance. The never-say-quit attitude for Vinny Pazienza is endearing instead of annoying. Miles Teller puts forth a compelling performance. Aaron Eckhart compliments him well. Those two really make the movie for what it is. The fight scenes don't necessarily come off as ground breaking. We've certainly seen better choreography in other boxing films before, but it's the scenes between the fights that keep you entertained and involved. While you coast through this film, you can't help but wonder how exciting of a person Vinny is behind the scenes. It doesn't quite get the success of his career across the viewers, but it does give you insight into his prolific comeback, which deserves in its own right a story to be told.Lane Z Super Reviewer
