Not worth the claret!

I never imagined that Aaron Eckhart would make a good Kevin Rooney... but he really does - so well done to him and the casting department for absolutely nailing the part.

Everything else is one step above your typical Lifetime movie, and not worth the investment. It seems to have only been made because it has an ostensibly 'feelgood' ending, and a traditional three act structure of establishment, setback, and triumphant return.

It's blindingly obvious even before watching that he's a competitive person - all successful sports people are. Here, though, competitiveness is turned into a fetish; something to be reveled in, at any cost. It's the straight laced and serious version of the Monty Python "it's just a flesh wound!" gag. Weaker moments of doubt are treated as just minor bumps on the inevitable road to victory.

Personally, I would've rooted harder for the guy if he was ever made EMOTIONALLY vulnerable at any point - not just physically frail, through injury.

REAL bravery would be exploring different parts of your life and blossoming as a person - not staying stuck on the same track and ignoring the advice of others, because your conception of life is the only one that you know how to make work... If fighting is 'all you know how to do', then you're one dimensional, and uninteresting... Sadly, this means that, so is the movie.

Right down to the title, this is macho horse manure... Bleed for WHAT, exactly? Because you're used to it?! Nuts to that. Expand your horizons!

Thoroughly enjoyable

Maybe it's the truly amazing turn of events that Vinny went through that makes me give this a high score, but I also love an American sports film. This made 'Bleed For This' right up my street.

It's not up in the heady heights of Rocky. But it's easily as good a film as Creed for me.

Miles Teller is wonderful, and I really did root for him in this. I was completely unaware of Vinny Pazienza, and I'm more than happy with this film telling me his story.

A solid 8 out of 10, and well worth a watch if you like a good underdog film.

I just wanted more of some parts and far less of others.

Bleed for This (2016) This is a biographical sports film based on the life of former world champion boxer Vinny Pazienza. The film stars Miles Teller, with Aaron Eckhart, Katey Sagal, and Ted Levine in supporting roles. It received generally positive reviews but was a box office disappointment. It received little to no award recognition. It's not that it's a bad film. The problem is it's a boxing film about a man's comeback and redemption. It means it will be immediately compared to Rocky. This is a disadvantage to these types of films and requires them to step up their game. This film failed in some aspects, but did well in others. I wanted some more background in the beginning and some parts of the film could have been tightened up to allow for this. It seems either the editing or writing was flawed. I just wanted more of some parts and far less of others.
