Bleed for Comeback
29 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

This ain't no 'Rocky' - like some other reviewer said. And I'm clad it ain't no 'Rocky'. 'Bleed for This' doesn't offer anything new in the boxing genre, but it still stands as its own. The script is pretty basic and by the numbers, and mainly carried by the strong performances of the cast - especially Miles Teller who is just superb as Vinny Paz. It treats the viewers with some boxing movie clichés (at the moment I think there is no other way to make them), but they are not too obvious to ruin the experience. The real life story of Vinny Pazienza is incredible and in real life he's much more colorful personality than it was depicted in the film (so were some other characters). In that department, the film played little safe. Of course it's only a movie (a near good one), and it has to leave some room for fantasy and drama. Another thing I liked about the film is that it didn't do much over dramatization like most of the based on true life films (and sporting films in general) tend to do. 'Bleed for This' isn't the greatest film of the year or not even greatest boxing film, but it's one of the best that has come out in recent years. I'm sure this film will gain more appreciation over time.

Of course to me, who I'm little boxing enthusiast myself, I always get hyped for another boxing movie. 'Bleed for This' is quite well balanced, paced and acted sporting drama that is definitely worth giving shot at.
