The boxing sports genre has been very generic for a while. Two months ago The Weinstein Company released Hands of Stone (the biopic of Roberto Duran) which I thought was a run of the mill boxing film. It was a comeback story that was dull and shallow. Now we have Open Road Films rushing to the Oscar season with Bleed For This starring Miles Teller as Vinny Pazienza which should be his shot of getting that Oscar glory you know he wants. Since J.K Simmons’ hauntingly powerful performance in Whiplash blew Teller out of the water he deserves a biopic like this. If Whiplash couldn’t put him on the awards map, maybe a vehicle like this would.

All boxing films are seeming like the same nowadays “ give me another chance,” “one more shot.” Writer/Director Ben Younger attempts to have this biopic be different from others. From the beginning, you see how Vinny is a hot shot wild card. They show his flaws in less than the first 10 minutes. It goes straight into his loss and the introduction of other people vital to his career and his life especially his family. The film shows how important Vinny’s home means to him. Every time Vinny is boxing on TV, you see his mom in another room praying and smoking to her jesus glass figurines because of her religious views against violence yet she still calls out to her family who are in the living room to see if he’s winning or not.
If you ever wanted to see Miles Teller as a boxer with a Rhode Island accent, then this is the film for you. Granted he looks more like Jerry Ferrara, he truly does a good job in his lead role as Vinny Pazienza. His voice is very similar to the real boxer. What is good about Vinny to follow as a character is that not only “he’s a fighter,” but he’s not arrogant. What makes Pazienza much more of a genuine character his near death accident and his way to recovery. Most boxing films center on the boxer’s win-loss-win storyline but this is a real accident that more depressing. Even after this man’s near death experience and when he wakes he still wants to box. It’s the scenes where Vinny is wearing the HALO attempting to train that displays Teller’s dedication to the role. He got built more than you’ve ever seen him before. Younger does a great job capturing the fire and the spirit of Pazienza making him a likable person with Teller’s performance doing him great justice.
As much as Miles Teller does a great job he is at times outshines by one of the many faces of Aaron Eckhart. When he’s introduced, you have no idea it’s him. It doesn’t even sound like him it doesn’t even look like him. This year we are getting the many faces of Aaron Eckhart from Sully and now this. He’s more than your average boxing trainer with a known past but he’s also his friend. He puts on this New York accent and a majority of times deliver some of the best lines. But whenever he’s sharing the screen with Teller there is some amazing chemistry on screen. It may not as strong as B. Jordan and Stallone in Creed, but their relationship is very strong. One of the best scenes of the film is the recreation of Vinny’s training videos with his HALO.
The film does, in fact, follow some boxing cliches with numerous training montages and elements within its story. Not that its much of an issue, but the boxing aren’t all that great. The film is more centered on his comeback to boxing than boxing itself With several boxing sequences a lot of shots are out of the ring focusing on the reaction of the audience.
In some cases, this film could be sort of a sequel to Hands of Stone. It features the fight between Duran and Paz towards the end of the film. Yet since we had two boxing films featuring Roberto Duran, I’m personally disappointed the film doesn’t have Edgar Ramirez reprising his role. Hands of Stone didn’t feature the Vinny Paz fight (for obvious purposes) yet this one does so….couldn’t get Ramirez? I guess the Boxing Cinematic Universe would never happen.
Bleed For This is a relatively solid biopic with fine performances from Miles Teller and Aaron Eckhart and a great screenplay from writer/director Ben Younger.
**Born again to reach the sky.**
I definitely did not expect it. It’s a biographical-sport-drama, that tells an inspiring story of a talented young American boxer who faced the biggest setback in his career after met with a car crash. The remaining parts focused on how he struggles to come back, while recovering from the serious injury.
The biggest advantage was the cast. I particularly liked Miles Teller in the lead role. His recent rise in the Hollywood was phenomenal and this one is his another must watch film. Even the supporting cast and roles were awesome. If you are a boxing/sports film fan, you will love it. But there is sufficient drama in the tale to build an impressive storyline.
Feels like it is under-appreciated, and being a Hollywood film, the recognition was too poor. In the coming days, years, it will reach the largest audience coverage. From this film, the director is the one who gained big. Surely he should make use of its success to his next films. Because I’ll be expecting much better and bigger than this. This film is one of the best of the years, so don’t miss it.
“Bleed for This” is a Biography – Sport movie in which we watch the real-life story of World Champion Boxer Vinny Pazienza. While a World Champion Boxer had a near fatal car crash from which it wasn’t certain whether he would ever walk again or not. He didn’t only walk again but he made one of sport’s most incredible comebacks.
I really liked this movie because it was based on a real-life story of a great athlete who made the impossible, possible. The direction which was made by Ben Younger who is also the writer of this movie was simply amazing and he presented very well the difficulties and the obstacles that Vinny Pazienza faced and had to overcome in order not only to walk again but to fight. The interpretations of both Miles Teller who played as Vinny Pazienza and Aaron Eckhart who played as Kevin Rooney were simply exceptional. Some other interpretations that have to be mentioned were Ciarán Hinds’ who played as Angelo Pazienza and Katey Sagal who played as Louise Pazienza and they both did a great job. I highly recommend everyone to watch this movie because I am sure that you will love it and after watching it you will remember it for a long time.
After an advanced screening of the movie last night, and hope I can save you a wasted trip to the multiplex…
There are two types of Boxing movies…ones that compare to Raging Bull, and ones like this. It is a contrived tale of a boxer who triumphs over adversity in a plug and play, cookie-cutter way that feels like you have seen it a thousand times before. There are the manufactured triumphant moments, programmed “Insert humor here” chuckles, and the “shocking” (but not really)events. At no time are you transported into caring, as the great cast are forced into shallow stereotypes with no depth or dimension. Miles Teller does a serviceable job in this poorly thought out role, but looks the same no matter what weight class he is fighting in, Aaron Eckhart is positively repulsive looking as an overweight drunk has-been(how original!) with a distracting haircut meant to look like he is balding. He is given no real role to showcase his talents, and the alcoholic angle just seems ridiculous and unreal. Ted Levine as a creepy boxing promoter is just a wasted rehash of his creepiness from Silence of the Lambs, and fits into yet another of the movie’s contrivances.
The group of actors are wasted on stale fare,the Director should be held to account for making a cut and paste generic melodrama, and the cinematography at no time brings the fights to life. There is no development to make you really like or care about the characters, there are no surprises in the whole movie, the emotion and the laughs are contrived (and the car crash was dumb… Vinny is in the car, which is supposed to be a new Camaro, but has old faded paint, and has a bloody head and everybody in the scene is shocked, but he looks much better then he did after he had won a fight…silly) and the script never lets anything seem genuine.
The movies flaws outweigh its good points 10 to 1, and the first half of the movie could have been left on the cutting room floor with no ill-effect. In fact, it seemed like a four hour movie. Sadly, Bleed For This should slowly bleed to death through faint praise, and with good editing, should have ended up as nothing more than its trailer…
