Never retreat, never surrender!

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.

Bleed for Comeback

The problem with BLEED FOR THIS is that the true story behind it is way more fascinating than the film itself which unfortunately doesn't get to be anything more than mundane. After having seen countless other comeback underdog themed films in the past, BLEED FOR THIS just seems so uninspired.Miles Teller plays Vinny "The Pazmanian Devil" Pazienza, a boxer who shot to stardom after winning 2 world title fights. He's at the top of his game. But a near fatal car crash leaves him with spinal injury so bad the doctors think he may never walk again. But with the help of stubbornness and his trainer, Kevin Rooney (Aaron Eckhart), Vinny proves everybody wrong and not only does he get to walk again, he ultimately returns to the ring and reclaims his title belt. It's been deemed as one of the most incredible comebacks in sports history.As I said earlier, the true story of Vinny and how he defied all odds is fascinating, I mean the guy actually had metals screwed in to his head and shoulders, the damage would make even people with faith be skeptical of Vinny's recovery. So the fact that he ended up boxing again was nothing short of a miracle. But the film unfortunately is too textbook, there's nothing authentic about writer/director Ben Younger's approach, even the way it presents some of the characters' personal demons, they come across like some kind of caricatures. Which is a shame because I commend Younger for taking a risk on the guy who usually plays the funny friend ("Footloose," "Divergent") and was part of that horrible "Fantastic Four" reboot, Miles Teller. I think gambling on Teller was the right move on Younger, Teller in my opinion does his job, maybe not to the extent that De Niro did his in "Raging Bull," but Teller provides a much needed intensity. The kid's got talent. I can't say the same for the rest of the actors around him that are too busy trying to look and talk and walk like they're local Providence. BLEED FOR THIS is what happens when a script plays it too much by the book and plays it safe, what you get is a film that doesn't move you; a film that lacks imagination and excitement.-- Rama's Screen --

This ain't no Rocky!

Miles Teller has become an exceptional actor of his time. I was excited to see his turn as Vinny Paz, the Boxer with the broken spine. A story of overcoming impossible odds and agonizing pain seems like a role that was tailor maid for Teller. When we last saw him, he was getting slapped silly by an enraged jazz professor. Are we going to get Whiplash-ed again? Unfortunately, not this time. Among moments of greatness, Bleed for This is a totally missed opportunity. There is so much you could do with this material. Why couldn't we go deeper into the mind of Vinny? Why couldn't we see, in nuanced ways, how tortured a champion boxer could be when he realizes that he can never fight again? We do see this almost happening in the painful scenes of Vinny trying to lift a bar with his severed spine, and the brutal scene where Vinny gets his headgear unscrewed with no anesthesia. It's so visceral and awful, you can actually feel the pain. But the rest of the film is a cornucopia of boxing tropes. It's The Fighter meets Raging Bull meets Southpaw.. and on and on. You've seen it all before.
