Variety - Peter Debruge
Teller is terrific, which should come as no surprise to “Whiplash” fans, though no less significant, the film represents a significant return for writer-director Ben Younger.
We Got This Covered - Matt Donato
This is a boxing drama that scrappily battles for its recognition, determined to win you over at any cost.
Observer - Rex Reed
Nothing much revelatory here, but what makes the movie a keeper is the energy of director Ben Younger (Boiler Room) and the charisma of Miles Teller, the sensational young actor from "Whiplash," who invests the role of a prizefighter with the same intensity he brought to the role of an obsessively driven drummer in that film.
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.
Screen International - Wendy Ide
Rather than bring anything new to the genre, director Ben Younger settles for adding a distinctive bracing energy to the somewhat timeworn tropes.
