The Revenant is a nonstop rollercoaster of survival. The story loosely follows the true life story of Hugh Glass. After his adoptive son is killed and he’s left for dead, Hugh Glass seeks revenge. Trying to survive every step of the way. The scenes of survival are so excessively violent and gore that you might want to avert your eyes. What makes the movie unique is its use of natural light. As well as the fact that it’s the movie that Leonardo DiCaprio finally won an Oscar for. He definitely suffered for it. The biggest stand out of The Revenant however, is the infamous “bear scene.” Which is both brutal and vicious. If you weren’t afraid of getting attacked by a bear before, you will be after that scene. Interestingly enough, I was also trying to survive while watching the movie. I had to pee very badly the entire 2 hours and 36 minutes. The Revenant is definitely the kind of movie that you only want to watch once. So make it count.
