'The Revenant' (which means something like 'dead ringer') is loosely based on the Michael Punkes bestseller ’The Revenant: A Novel of Revenge’, which again is loosely based on the real-life Hugh Glass's adventures in the american wilderness in the 19th century. century. But it is first and foremost a fairy tale or a myth. Davy Crocket on the turbo. Or Jack London, Joseph Conrad, and James Fenimore Cooper, on really heavy drugs.
the Story of the silent, tough and rugged men battle against each other, the nature (and indians) as well as revenge as a driving force as such is not agonizing the original, but 'The Revenant' is similar yet not something you have ever seen before.
here is the film in the utmost potency and so virtuosic screwed together that one time and time again is to lose both eyes and ears. There are scenes here, you never forget again. And if any hereafter should be in any doubt that mexicaneren Alejandro G. Iñárritu is one of the most visionary and original trainers with a literally exemplary understanding of filmmediets opportunities, they must be both blind and deaf.
The most incredible thing is that 'The Revenant' is made largely without the aid of modern computer graphics.
the Filming (in Canada and Argentina) is said to have been crazy strenuous and many left since also the film along the way, as they could not tolerate wine.
Leonardo DiCaprio – who must get his Oscar now – has stated that there are 30 to 40 scenes here, which are among the toughest he has been exposed to in his career. But it has been all worth the effort, we should greet and say.
the Story is briefly told to a group of fur trappers attacked by a bunch of indians deep in the wilderness, forced to flee, after which the of of them (Dicaprio's Hugh Glass) is wounded and buried alive – but to feel that one has murdered his half-indian son to the eyes of him. He survives, of course, with the barely (and the use of at least nine lives), and then engage in a relentless hunt for misdæderen Fitzgerald (played with fierce bravura of Tom Hardy).

It is not anything new, but the amazing and often very bloody events are told with so much excess, intensity and wildness – and mainly in the images, as there is not wasted much energy on the words here – that one almost sucked into the drama and leave the cinema totally confused and a big experience richer. It is here, they believe in 'movies'.
All to play here – the set design, acting, photography, sound and music goes up in the famous higher unit. MUST be seen in the movies – and preferably in a well-equipped ones.
A thrilling sansebombardement, which has earned every one of its 12 Oscar nominations.
