While exploring the uncharted wilderness in 1823, frontiersman Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) sustains life-threatening injuries from a brutal bear attack. When a member (Tom Hardy) of his hunting team kills his young son (Forrest Goodluck) and leaves him for dead, Glass must utilize his survival skills to find a way back to civilization. Grief-stricken and fueled by vengeance, the legendary fur trapper treks through the snowy terrain to track down the man who betrayed him.

Critic Reviews for The Revenant
Audience reviews for the revenant.
Exceptionally beautiful direction and screenplay by Iñárritu. Superb cinematography. Poignant soundtrack. Brilliant performances (although Hardy's mumbling was difficult to discern oftimes). Fantastic costumes and sound. There's nothing not to love about this graceful, poetic and haunting film.
After being attacked by a bear, Hugh Glass must survive the perils of the wilderness and avenge the murder of his son. Brutal and raw, Leonardo DiCaprio's incredible performance deserves all its accolades, and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu is at top form, crafting an adventure that I wish more blockbusters would imitate. There's real tension in the conflicts, and the action scenes aren't jump-cutted to incomprehensible death. The second act is a little long, and I could've done without so many shots that jerk off to trees and sky. Overall, one of the best films of the year, this is a great adventure story.
As much as I really didn't care for his Oscar winning picture 'Birdman " Director Alejandro Gonzalez Innarito put together and presented A motion picture movie with a compelling combination of beautiful, brutality and compelling acting performances that I can remember in a film picture in some time. Inarritu brought long natural light, brilliant camera-tracking shots, placement that makes specific scenes take on an impressive sense of real. I was afraid that the appealing trailers may give away too much ongoing with this film, but once you see it all the way thru, there was much more meat on the bone to chew - Revenant is a western set film that is so intense on Survival and Revenge. I was getting myself prepared for a slow start and even slower character-developing as the movie progresses , but I got anything but that. It starts out brutally violent and blood gory,..in fact it literally " rains " with brutal graphic violence (remember how Saving Private Ryan war scene started out ?) there's an absolute impressive amount of attacks and escapes, and the motion and camera shots are always moving and enticing. I found myself constantly engaged anywhere from Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) to his son, to his comrades, to the surrounding area Much is going to talked about the Grizzly scene, which was as brutally savage and tantalizing as you can expect. And it's not a quick, clean brush with death either. It stretches and extends to you find yourself thinking ...."wow, when is this going to be over, ? " .....no way he is making it out of this "" .... the frame set of the camera doing this Bear scene is brilliant, just when you think, this has to be it, this has to be the end and this has to be a final escape, the brutal scene goes on, .and squeamish you are shown the bloody results of such an attack. DiCaprio's performance was outstanding from humble father and husband, to fallen victim who has to visually and physically experience a heart broken tragedy , to how he miraculousy finds a way to emerge from helplessness to a fierce never say die sole survivor who is relentless in his quest to not only survive but hunt for vengenance. I can't think of a more terrific acting performance by DiCaprio, that easily outshines his Gangs of New York, The Departure and Django Unchained. Revenant has a pace that can be compared to Castaway in that it has a mesmerizing slowness but it's unique in how it still engages and appeals to you. You can't pull away from it because of the creativity in either the characters, or how the way of survival, escapes or prey-hunting is being presented to you. John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy) keeps another half of it going because he is brilliantly ruthless - almost to a babbling psycho nut presence. Fitzgerald can sabotage or turn on a friend or foe at any given moment and turn. And he is corky in how he does it. And you can eventually get to a hold of why Fitz thinks and feels the way he does and takes the course of action he does to alleviate the crucial revenge hunt. And just when you thought that would be the end of Glass's tragedies and heartbreaks he is about discover another in an unsuspecting friend. And there is eventually the finale which not only includes again some graphic violence but some turning strategic combat methods as well. Interesting the plot and story write of the Revenant is pretty simple, however the combination of acting performances , action sequences and camera work and cinematography will be on a cult classic for many decades to come. From the snowy woods and mountains, to the murky trees of the forest, from the river waters and falls , to the group camp scenes, and there is also a well done music score as well. i spoke much about the bear scene, but expect to be almost in awe with the horse scene as well. Frankly speaking I have no doubt in my mind that the Revenant will be going away with the Oscar come February and we could see awards given away for best actor, best director , best cinematography, and most definitely ... Best Picture. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd have to give the Revenant a 9.0
See more reviews like this at chrisbreviews.blogspot.com First things first, steer clear of this one if you don't like either of the following; This movie is LONG. 3 hours long (including ads and credits). AND It is VERY gory. There's excessive violence, a lot of blood, and quite confronting conflict. Right, if you're still here, let's get on with the actual movie quality. The plot moves along very slowly, with bursts of tense or action sequences in between watching DiCaprio crawling through snow. It depends on your perspective, but these scenes were probably inserted by Director Iñárritu to demonstrate Hugh's recovery and to emphasise the underlying theme of survival and perseverance. Don't see it if you've got a short attention span. But, the plot, aside from its excessive length, is truly brilliant. It centres around revenge and there is constantly something posing a threat to the main character, even in those dull moments the freezing temperature causes Glass to do some quick thinking. And the relentless barrage of threats over 3 hours truly emphasises his achievement of survival, makes audiences admire his sheer determination, and makes you root for this character the whole way. Even in its conclusion, you remember everything he's endured throughout the movie and be in awe of the character. It's truly an amazing story, and what makes it even more amazing is that it's based on true events. The CGI, Special effects, and make up are all exemplary. And there's a lot of opportunities for them to shine. The most impressive example of this is the bear that mauls Glass. But, even though its minor to many, one of the biggest things that annoy me is that everyone except the good guys seem to be horrible at aiming! There's a scene with Glass on a horse riding parallel to an army of Indians and not one of them hit him! So plot convenience was my biggest irritation. The cast is nearly entirely male; consisting of Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Will Poulter, Domhnall Gleeson, Lukas Haas, and Kristoffer Joner. Obviously we all know that DiCaprio is nominated for an Oscar for his performance, and he's a big chance at finally winning. If he doesn't earn it on this performance, he never will. Because he was brilliant, despite having no speech nearly the entire time. And he's stolen the spotlight, but I don't think Tom Hardy was given enough credit as he deserved. I learned over the 3 hours to despise him, and he was an integral element in the overall quality of this movie and DiCaprio's performance. Young Will Poulter wasn't too bad either as the naïve and scared young hunter. Hugh Glass was of course an incredibly interesting and well-developed character. We see flashbacks of his deceased wife and parents telling him to survive and push the limits no matter what. This same message is delivered to Glass's son, and we are reminded of it throughout the movie, but we don't need to be to see that's its obviously been deep-seeded in Glass. That and his desire for revenge allows him to persist and endure even in the closest of death experiences and when all seems lost. Even I felt hopeless for him yet he somehow gets back up again. Hardy's character Fitz doesn't seem to have enough motivation aside from some strange sense of racism to kill Glass's son and have an uncontrollable hate for Glass. That was a slight downfall. With plenty of time to kill, they included plenty of genres. They include action, adventure, biographical, drama, history, thriller, war, and western. The setting was in the 1820's American winter. We can't forget the fantastic themes that the movie was centralised around. These are themes of survival, perseverance, revenge, family, love, and murder. To conclude, I thought this was a brilliant film, and it's not just me that thinks so, with the film scoring a whopping 12 nominations including best picture, best actor in a leading role, best actor in a supporting role, cinematography (which I loved due to the panoramic tracking shots for extended periods during battle sequences), and directing. Unfortunately, it was just too long and had a few too many plot conveniences and a couple underdeveloped characters.

Einer der besten & härtesten Abenteuerfilme aller Zeiten: Ihr könnt ihn bei Netflix, Disney+ UND Amazon Prime Video streamen
Schonungslos inszeniert, aufopfernd gespielt und völlig zurecht mit Preisen überhäuft: Mit „The Revenant“ gibt es derzeit einen der besten Abenteuerfilme überhaupt bei Netflix, Disney+ und auch Amazon Prime Video.
Während „ The Revenant - Der Rückkehrer “ sowie Hauptdarsteller Leonardo DiCaprio für seine Leistung in der albtraumhaft-winterlichen Odyssee durch die Weiten der Vereinigten Staaten von der Fachpresse mit Lobeshymnen überhäuft wurden, hat das preisgekrönte Historien-Abenteuer für DiCaprio-Fans (und letztlich auch für DiCaprio selbst) eine ganz besondere Bedeutung: Denn für seine Darbietung als Trapper Hugh Glass bekam er 2016 endlich seinen längst überfälligen Oscar, den ihm viele schon für „ Gilbert Grape “ (1993) gegönnt hätten, für „ Aviator “ (2003) oder „ Blood Diamond “ (2006), und nicht zuletzt auch für „ The Wolf Of Wall Street “ (2013). Egal, im fünften Anlauf war es dann endlich so weit und er durfte den Goldjungen absolut verdient mit nach Hause nehmen.
Ihr habt derzeit den Luxus, „The Revenant - Der Rückkehrer“ auf den größten Streaming-Plattformen der Gegenwart zu streamen – einen brillant inszenierten Film, der es sogar in die ultimative FILMSTARTS-Liste der besten Abenteuerfilme aller Zeiten schaffte. Wir können also nur eine Empfehlung aussprechen, je nachdem, welche Abos ihr habt. Reinschauen lohnt sich in jedem Fall – bei Netflix , bei Disney+ * oder bei Amazon Prime Video:
"The Revenant": Ein visuell überwältigendes Erlebnis
Meisterregisseur Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu („Birdman“, „21 Gramm“) entführt uns in die USA der 1820er, in den noch weitgehend unberührten Wilden Westen, in dem Männer unbarmherzig sind und die Natur sogar noch unbarmherziger.
Gemeinsam mit Captain Andrew Henry ( Domhnall Gleeson ) und dessen Weggefährten erforscht Hugh Glass ( Leonardo DiCaprio ) den Missouri River. Die Expedition durch die unwirtlich-winterliche Landschaft verlangt den Männern einiges ab, als Glass eines Tages wie aus dem Nichts von einem Grizzly angegriffen wird. Glass überlebt, doch der Bär richtet dem Abenteurer derart schlimm zu, dass für seine Begleiter (u.a. Tom Hardy und Will Poulter ) kein Zweifel mehr besteht: Es ist nur noch eine Frage von Stunden, allerhöchstens Tagen, bis Glass seinen Verletzungen erliegt. Also lassen sie ihn zurück, hilflos irgendwo im Nirgendwo liegend, nichtsahnend, dass Glass' Überlebenswille ihn noch weit bringen wird…
Während DiCaprio (oscarprämiert), Hardy (oscarnominiert) sowie Gleeson und Poulter (beide ebenfalls famos) allesamt groß aufspielen, lebt „The Revenant“ am Ende vor allem von seiner ebenso schonungslosen wie bildgewaltigen Inszenierung. In der unberührten Natur drehte Iñárritu seinen Film nicht nur ausschließlich bei natürlichem Licht, sondern eben auch tatsächlich bei Eiseskälte – und genau deswegen wird der erbitterte Überlebenskampf von Glass und Co. auch für das Publikum am eigenen Leib spürbar.
„The Revenant“ macht keine Gefangenen, geht szenenweise regelrecht durch Mark und Bein und erreicht immer wieder eine fast schon unerträglich scherzhafte Intensität, der man sich kaum entziehen kann.
Oscarnominierungen für die visuellen Effekte, Schnitt, Ton, Make-up, Kostüme und Produktionsdesign unterstreichen außerdem die audiovisuellen Qualitäten des Films. Besonders großen Anteil daran haben allen voran aber natürlich Regisseur Iñárritu und Kamera-Genie Emmanuel Lubezki („Gravity“, „Birdman“, „Children Of Men“, „The Tree Of Life“), die einen einzigartigen Bilderrausch von der Leine lassen, der an Pracht und auch Wucht kaum zu überbieten ist. „Schon der Indianerangriff zu Beginn fällt ungleich brachialer aus als jede Superhelden-Klopperei“, heißt es etwa in der offiziellen FILMSTARTS-Kritik , in der Autor Christian Horn am Ende bärenstarke 4,5 von 5 möglichen Sternen vergibt.
