This performance was definitely deserving of an Oscar.
The Revenant is a drama-thriller where a frontiersman on a fur trading expedition in the 1820s fights for survival after being mauled by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. Grief-stricken and fueled by vengeance, the legendary fur trapper treks through the snowy terrain to track down the man who betrayed him.
The film features Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, and Forrest Goodluck as some of the main characters. The special effects are very high tech. They make you feel as if you are is in the movie yourself. The special effects team created the most amazing and realistic grizzly bear. The actors did such a great job, especially DiCaprio, considering he got his first ever Oscar for his performance in this movie. The actors suffered through this movie, and you can feel their pain as you watch them struggle through their trials.
This film is rated R for strong frontier combat and violence including some gory images and language. So this movie is more geared toward adults or older teenagers. The overall quality of this movie was just amazing. I give this movie a five out of five stars and I definitely recommend this film.
