This is a remarkable and extraordinary film. It raises the filmmaking art to a different level. The direction, cinematography, editing, and sound are exceptional. From the astonishing opening sequence and throughout Inarritu's direction is fluid, surprising and alternately grand and intimate. Much has been made of the cinematography using only natural light, and rightly so. It is stunningly beautiful, and the harsh majesty of the wintertime Pacific Nothwest has never been captured like this. The sound editing was completely immersive and had the sharp clarity and snap of frozen timber. I didn't care that much for Birdman, although it too had some complex and mystifying sequences. But what Innaritu has done here is an whole other experience. Frankly, he and his crew deserve any and all accolades coming their way, even that bonfire of the vanities the Academy Awards. Yeah, he won the Oscar last year. Tough. Technically and artistically this film is peerless.

A simple story of survival and revenge told in straightforward terms with incredible attention to detail and authenticity, it is brutal and direct, just like life in the early 19th Century was brutal and direct. Leonardo Dicaprio does a fine job, ably supported by an unrecognizable Tom Hardy, that brilliant chameleon who here has a different voice and a rural accent that feels exactly 1800's Americana. Hardy goes so deep into character only Daniel Day Lewis could find him.

This movie won't be for everyone. It is harsh and graphic and it is exactly what it purports to be: the story of a man mauled by a grizzly and left for dead who survives and makes his way back hundreds of miles to safety and to exact his revenge; and, how he does that and who and what he meets on the way.

This film transports you to the 1820's American wilderness where the mountain men carved out a living trapping for furs. This movie has captured that time and place like no other I've ever seen including the 70's classic "Jeremiah Johnson". You feel the fear as the arrows
from Indians pierce men's heads and bodies and a bear attack leaves Hugh Glass for dead. Blizzards, avalanches, and storms are common place, and men have little time for anything but survival in this cold, brutal hell they have found themselves. The beauty of the untouched wilderness is breathtaking to behold and this film captures it like no other. The language is rough as are the men here but so is the life
they are experiencing. Eating raw, and often rotten meat was commonplace for these men back then. It was just a game to stay alive...

Simply put, The Revenant is a masterpiece. Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki (Gravity, Birdman) succeeded, once again, in creating a beautiful work of art. In my humble opinion, I believe he deserves his third Academy Award in a row.

The Revenant has been largely promoted as a revenge tale. However, it's more than just a revenge tale. It's a story about a father's love for his son, and his determination, through many intense hardships, to bring justice to his son's killer. It's not a happy tale, but it's still full of beauty. It certainly would not have had the same effect without the captivating performances of both Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy.

I don't think this movie appeals to everyone. It's long, dark, and slow at times. If you want happy endings and continuous action, you may not enjoy the film. However, if you are a stickler for great acting, cinematography, and story telling, do yourself a favor and watch this movie.

Parents Guide: As you should expect with an R-rating, The Revenant does contain some content that you may find offensive. There is a scene in which a captive woman is raped (no nudity), but the man is stopped mid-way through. DiCaprio is briefly seen nude in another scene (none sexual). Profanities include several uses of f***, n*****, as well as some mild swear words. Violence ranges from extreme to moderate depending on the sequence. Even I had to cringe at times.

All-in-all, the content is used realistically, and is not enhanced like in many Hollywood productions.

Wow, what a unique experience it was to see The Revenant. First, the world in which it was set was absolutely immersive. It's one thing to film your movie in beautiful and open spaces, but it's quite another to do it well and get the camera angles right. The Revenant does both almost perfectly. I found myself thinking that the scenery alone was worth the price of my ticket. Second, I wouldn't consider myself a Dicaprio fan per se, but my goodness he really impressed me here. At times the intensity of his very expressions told us more than mere words ever could.

The Revenant, meaning a person who has returned, tells the story of exactly that. A man is brought to the brink of death, fueled not so much by the will to survive as much as the need for revenge. Hugh Glass is an almost ethereal and other worldly character traveling the mystic world of the early 20th century west. Here we have a character study that somehow brings that genre even into its action scenes. I checked the historical record and was surprised that a good amount of the movie stayed true to it. Sure, some aspects were changed but it made for a more satisfying ending.

On a lighter note, the man in the picture fell asleep after the first fifteen minutes, sleeping and snoring until the credits rolled. So, clearly the movie will not keep everyone's interest.

Don't see this movie if you are looking for something that is fast paced. Do see this if you desire a top tier epic period drama.
