  • It may be predictable, but Bleed For This still grabs with its astonishing against-all-odds true story, and its belter of a central performance from Miles Teller. Full Review

  • Teller is terrific, which should come as no surprise to “Whiplash” fans... Full Review

  • A gritty, pungently Rhode Island working class-set boxing drama that connects with most of its punches. Full Review

  • Overall, Bleed For This is difficult to dislike: the story may be hokey but it’s real, and so is the sentiment behind it. Full Review

  • For all its smashed open cuts and swollen eye sockets, Younger’s film remains an oddly sterile experience. For a biopic, it is remarkably featureless. Full Review
