The Revenant Review

SHARE:

With the exception of the bear sex thing, whatever you’ve heard about The Revenant is  probably true. Yes, it’s beautiful. Yes, it’s exciting. Yes, Leo deserves the Oscar, and YES, the  bear is awesome. But more importantly, The Revenant is masterful movie making from  Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. 

From the get go, it’s quite apparent that The Revenant was an incredibly gruelling shoot for it’s cast. Besides Leo, Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter and the rest of the cast look  like they went through hell on earth to make this movie. Besides the icy waters, the movie  looks like the temperture never went above minus ten. A testament to their craft and phenomenal  dedication as it pays off time and time again. 

Set in the bleak 1820s, Di Caprio is a frontiersman (and campfire legend) called Hugh Glass  who is left for dead on a fur trading expedition by his colleagues, after a bear mauls him to an  inch of his life. Eventually, Glass  gets going again and fights for survival as he attempts to find  the men who left him to die.  The aforementioned bear scene is pretty damn brutal, so be warned those of you with little  girlie tummies. However, it’s instantly one of the movie scenes of the year as Industrial Light  and Magic created this incredible, vicious, slobbering work of art. And to be fair, you’ll feel  sorry for the bear, as much as you’ll feel for Leo. It really is an insane scene. 


The cast here are splendid. DiCaprio proves yet again that he is one of the finest actors of his  generation as he transitions from one demeanour to the next with ease. Tom Hardy, while  slightly underused, as per usual hurtles himself into the role and really seems to relish every  moment he’s on screen. But the real shining lights here are Will Poulter, who puts in a  fantastic performance, and Domhnall Gleeson. Gleeson is absolutely incredible, and while calls  for Leo to be nominated for an Oscar are loud, people also need to start shouting for Gleeson.  His performance is genuinely that good.  

The Revenant is a beautiful looking movie in every sense of the word. Innaritu and his team  seem to frame every shot like a postcard, right down to the set pieces and action scenes. It  really is breathaking at times. However, if one had to nitpick at The Revenant, it could  genuinely do with an extra 20 minutes or so running time.

From time to time, the movie does  make assumptions that you’ll be able to pick up the pieces. And while in the bigger scheme of  things, this is a minor niggle, it doesn’t really detract away from the overal experience.  The Revenant is movie making at it’s finest. It’s exciting, jaw droppingly beautiful and is an absolute must watch!
