IMDB ranking: i dont care
I spent most of this movie thinking tom hardy was christian bale.
The Revenant is like Cormack McCarthy’s The Road but it takes place in 1820 instead of the future. It will suck the life out of you. It’s technically beautiful in the way Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain is technically beautiful, but it lacks any character to identify with. The movie is good but it really spends a lot of time reminding you it’s a movie that was technically difficult to make.
I recommend seeing this if you can appreciate that it uses all natural lighting, Leonardo DiCaprio doesn’t spend a lot of time talking just breathing, and Tom Hardy is a fucking chameleon.
edit: I didn’t post the trailer because the trailer tells you the entire fucking movie. Going into this movie without seeing the trailer makes it better.
