I don’t normally write film reviews, but I just had my heart sucked out by the film The Revenant with Leo DiCaprio. I went through every emotion and reaction possible (all the depressing ones unfortunately) to the point I was screaming at the characters on screen, and if you get into stories as much as I do where the reality world melts around you, then get ready to be completely absorbed and ne’er return. I don’t know much about North American history, and I can only imagine how tough it was for every native American tribe and all the pilgrims trying to fight their way into the new world. Finding an existence worth living for, but man o man, this film gives you an incredibly (most likely very realistic) insight on the human nature of survival in very harsh situations.
I also applaud Tom Hardy for doing an excellent performance being the asshole/traitor, he should definitely get something for that. DiCaprio of course was brill, he plays the pain always so convincing to the point where you just want to grab him, press his pain taken face to your breast, and pet his head saying ‘hush baby, it’ll all be alright’… And to finish, I really hope no animals were harmed in making this film, because if you’re vegan, this picture is gonna kill ya. 8.3/10
