Academy Award-winning director, Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu (Birdman) joins up with Leonardo DiCaprio (The Wolf of Wall Street) to explore the great American wilderness. DiCaprio plays hunter Hugh Glass, who is left behind by the members of his own team–including Tom Hardy’s (from Mad Max: Fury Road) character.
DiCaprio must use his wits and will to survive another day. He must also navigate unforgiving territory and harsh winter; think of Kevin Costner in 1990’s Oscar-winning Best Picture Dances with Wolves. Now, multiply Costner’s Army officer/Indian survival difficulty by a factor of about 10. Answer: Hugh Glass. This movie smartly combines brutal conditions, warring tribes and a compelling Revenge Factor for the trifecta success formula that everyone will want to see post-Christmas dinner.
With Iñárritu and DiCaprio telling this story, The Revenant should be on everyone’s “Must See” watch list.
It’s obvious DiCaprio’s character never got this piece of bear-fighting advice.
Release date – Christmas Day. Mark your calendars.
