Iñárritu's powerfully visceral masterpiece seems impossibly real. Take a wrap; it feels like drowning in heavy ice and breathing glass shards.

Inspired by a true story that one suspects is more intriguing than this retelling.

Becomes more and more ridiculous as the minutes tick by.

"The Revenant" is a harsh and violent film questioning the validity of life and vengeance during a long-gone era. It's visual eloquence beautifully tells a story of loyalty and love as it pushes the boundaries of morality with brutality.

I applaud the endurance that actors undertook to get into the role and the cinematography is outstanding but for me the film lacked the poetic and almost lyrical style of The Last Of The Mohicans or Dances With Wolves.

One thing is certain: Iñárittu has finally solved the problem of how to film a realistic bear fight. The next cinematic problem he should tackle is screenwriting.

Its indulgences are largely worth it, resulting in an experience that even without a straightforward narrative is exactly what cinema is all about

Just dropped off into the realm of blandness far too often, but that's not to say that others won't gush plentiful over Inarritu's latest movie.

The Revenant is visually stunning, but the story is simplistic...all that agony makes the movie something to endure rather than inspire.

Takes a harrowing tale of survival and revenge and gives Leonardo DiCaprio the most physically demanding role of his career, which he effortlessly disappears into.

[Leonardo DiCaprio] barely says any words in this film, yet he's amazing.

Alejandro González Iñárritu tries to stun us with the full power movies have to document landscapes, the journeys conducted through them, and the stamina required to survive them.

It's a triumph of the human spirit's will to keep fighting in the face of insurmountable odds, with engrossing elements of revenge

The Revenant is a highly polished film about grand themes: greed, justice and the dispossession of indigenous lands.

From the first frame, you know you're in for something special and it's pretty clear that Leonardo has given his everything to this film.

Overall, The Revenant may not be the most compact film but it is an impactful one.
