BLEED FOR THIS is the incredible true story of one of the most inspiring and unlikely comebacks in sports history. Miles Teller (Whiplash) stars as Vinny "The Pazmanian Devil" Pazienza, a local boxer from Rhode Island who shot to stardom after winning two world title fights. After a near-fatal car accident leaves Vinny with a severed spine, he is told he may never walk again. Against doctor’s orders, renowned trainer Kevin Rooney (Aaron Eckhart, The Dark Knight) agrees to help Vinny return to the ring in just a year after the accident for what could be the last fight of his life.

Mature boxing drama is absorbing, if not original.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Bleed for This is a sometimes brutal, often riveting, but not entirely original drama based on the life of boxer scrappy, ambitious Vinny Pazienza (Miles Teller). His love for boxing is re-ignited by a tragic accident that's shown in a pretty disturbing way. There are also plenty of hard-hitting, bloody fight scenes in the ring that may be too intense for younger viewers. Strong language is frequent and includes "f--k," "t-ts," and more. Expect some social drinking and a character who's an alcoholic. Scenes take place in a strip club, and there's partial nudity: A woman's breasts are shown in the middle of an intimate scene. Still, the movie conveys the importance of believing in yourself and working hard.
