Today I went and saw The Revenant. Here’s a quick, spoiler-free review.
The movie is long. It’s about 2 hours and 40 minutes so use the restroom ahead of time. FWIW it didn’t feel that long.
I have no idea who else is/will be up for Best Actor at the Oscars but Leo should get one based on his history of never receiving one. Tom Hardy acted equally as well if not better.
The movie is a bit “woo woo” for lack of a better term. That should be expected from what I know about director Alejandro González Iñárritu even though I haven’t seen any of his other movies. I know, I know…
You probably already know this but this movie is violent. It’s probably the most violent movie I can remember seeing. If you’re even a little squeamish you want to sit this one out.
If you’re a fan of long shots, this one is full of crazy BA scenic shots. Those shots will be my lasting memories of the movie. That and the one scene. You’ll know what I’m talking about when you see it.
Let me know what you think of The Revenant when you see it!
