Honestly I am astonished at the lower ratings this film is getting, are you kidding me! Right off the bat in the beginning I could tell this film was going to be something special.
First off the Direction from Alejandro González Iñárritu, and cinematography from Emmanuel Lubezki is some of the greatest film work I have ever seen! The way the camera moves throughout the film is unparalleled. The feeling immerses you into the film that uses nature as its main star. Definitely see The Birdman duo getting a 2nd straight Oscar nod this year!
As for the acting, yes everyone asking will this film finally get Leo his first Oscar? I can honestly say for now yes! The reason I say for now, is because there is still a few months up to the Oscars and I am sure more films will arise as contenders, but for the time now, I personally haven’t seen a performance that betters Leo’s Hugh Glass for The Revenant this year. What he offers in this film is shear acting! If there is a better performance for an actor this year, please by all means tell me, because this will be hard to top people!
That being said I believe there will be another actor nominated for his performance in this film as well. Tom Hardy as John Fitzgerald, Tom was superb as the frontiersman and in my opinion definitely deserves a nod.
The plot is a pretty straight forward revenge story, but never the less the amazing acting, direction, camera work, and natural capture of a extreme cold wasteland will immerse the viewer into a film I think is unlike anything ever seen
I give this film a 9/10 and as always enjoy the show!
