A melee has broken out in the boxing film. The genre's ring is so crowded, a fighter leaning back for a left hook might inadvertently sock the wrong opponent. "Southpaw," "Hands of Stone," "Grudge Match," "Creed" and now "Bleed for This" – the films are literally bleeding together.Ben Younger's "Bleed for This," starring Miles Teller, distinguishes itself by doubling down on some of the tried-and-true formulas. The film's finest scenes are of a Vinny, a man built to hit things, wired with steel so that he can't touch anything let alone jab it.Most of the film's big moments, even its triumphant fight scenes, are sufficient if uninspired. At this point, the boxing movies are even stepping over each in the ring – one major fight here is with Roberto Duran, the subject of "Hands of Stone".
