The Revenent - Movie Review

The Revenant (R) 156 minutes B
Oscar-worthy performance by DiCaprio

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Grace Dove Syme, Forrest Goodluck, Lukas Haas, Dave Burchill, Melaw Nakehk'o, Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson and Will Poulter.

I saw The Revenant because it's nominated for an Academy Award (Best Picture), and because so many people told me how good was. The film is directed by Oscar winning director Alejandro González Iñárrituone. It stars one of the greatest actors of our time, Leonardo DiCaprio. It's partially based on Michael Punke's 2002 novel, and the film's cinematography is so good it's worth mentioning. However, this grueling, over the top, two and a half hour melodrama didn't stick around in my head after I left the theater. The Revenant is high on action, thin on plot, but worth a look if you're into that kind of thing. Not bad.  Glad I saw it.  Never want to see it again.
