Back in November last year we brought you our review of Bleed For This, which was based on the true story of Vinny ‘Paz’ Pazienza (played by Miles Teller), a boxer that after a tragic car accident faces the life-changing situation of never walking again!
It’s a brilliant film and not only has a moving story behind it but features some great performances from Miles Teller and Aaron Eckhart.
Bleed For This is heading to DVD and Blu-ray next week and to celebrate its release we have 3 Blu-rays of the film to giveaway to three of our lucky readers.
Bleed For This Synopsis
Featuring a gripping central performance from the increasingly eye-catching Miles Teller (Whiplash, War Dogs), Bleed For This follows boxing prodigy Vinny Pazienza’s soaring rise to stardom and two world-title fights. Then, at the top of his game, Vinny is involved in a near-fatal car accident that leaves him on the brink of paralysis, as doctors tell him he may never walk again will have to hang up his gloves forever. Against all odds and doctor’s orders, renowned trainer Kevin Rooney (Aaron Eckhart; The Dark Knight, Sully) helps Vinny return to the ring just a year after the accident to compete in what could be the last fight of his life.
Marking the return of writer/director Ben Younger (Prime, Boiler Room), with his first film in 11 years, and boasting an impressive supporting cast including Ciarán Hinds (TV’s Game of Thrones, Silence), Ted Levine (Shutter Island, American Gangster) and Katey Sagal (TV’s Sons of Anarchy), Bleed For This revisits the charms of one of cinema’s most beloved and timeless genres, channelling the true spirit of the underdog story with immense conviction. A knockout for boxing and movie fans alike!
