Metacritic Score

  • 70

    The Hollywood Reporter Todd McCarthy

    Bleed for This is a gritty, pungently Rhode Island working class-set boxing drama that connects with most of its punches.

    The Playlist Chris Willman

    Paz's story is obviously a feel-good one, which somewhat hamstrings a writer-director who you can feel chafing against the constraints of fidelity to sheer uplift.

    The Guardian Henry Barnes

    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.
