Film Review: The Revenant

Thrilling from the start, packed with graphic scenes and numerous emotive performances from both DiCaprio and Hardy.

The Revenant

You’ll be on the edge of your seat throughout the duration of this adventure-survival film.

Warning: if this is the case, you may have a numb bum after the (approximately) 156 minute long running time.

A commitment to enthrall with a globe-winning, ecstasy-building performance – the raw, brutal reality of DiCaprio’s performance will instantly turn the blood of his audience cold. Conveying terror, anger, fear, sadness and numerous other emotions; Leonardo DiCarpio 100% makes this film, representing the savagely wounded, mourning single father who is seeking revenge – Hugh Glass.

There is no doubt in my mind that this performance will earn him a truly deserved Oscar this year, closely followed in the line-up by a cruel, merciless interpretation of John Fitzgerald, played by none other than heart-throb Tom Hardy.

Although a little too long, with a slightly dragged out plot, I strongly suggest this film to anyone who can handle the brutality of bear attacks and merciless killing.

Rating: 4.5/5
