Bleed for This (2016)

7/10
Bleed for This is based on a true story, and unlike many Hollywood movies about boxing, this story was authentic. Now having said that, the major thing I felt was missing was heart. It is crazy to compare this to Rocky, Creed, or even Warrior, because those movies moved you, got you invested in every ounce of blood, sweat, and tears, yet Bleed for This didn’t. Ana really cared about Vinny Pazienza, I just wasn’t feeling it. Miles Teller is lights out fantastic here, even better than his performance in Whiplash, but his supporting cast is not at the same level.
