It's a ballsy, committed performance, and DiCaprio knows it. Occasionally, in one of his many close-ups, he stares into the camera with a look that screams "Are you not entertained?"

It's a classic storytelling convention, one that has been employed since the dawn of moviemaking...It's just that González Iñárritu finds a way to make it look so beautiful.

The star of THE REVENANT is the technical excellence and its visual imagery. Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki stuns and dazzles thanks to his use of the Alexa 65 and natural light...Production designer Jack Fisk is masterful with his vision of the period

Leo DiCaprio has taken this role not only seriously, but to the absolute extreme. It's all in his steel cold blue eyes. And he may finally get his reward for his part in a film that's big, beautiful, bold and cold.

Such a stunningly gorgeous, yet hauntingly powerful film.

It is the film for which Leonardo DiCaprio should finally win the Oscar for his "inhuman" performance, and it also has many other virtues. [Full Review in Spanish]

'The Revenant' is a kind of larger than life story in which Don Iñárritu makes everything in the movie also large. [Full Review in Spanish]

This rich blood-soaked tapestry of survival and revenge will deliver a unique cinematic experience, if you have the stomach for it.
August 8, 2019
Its grand visuals are sometimes bogged down by self-important emotional drives, its restraint sometimes wasted in repetitive indulgence, and its last third rushed. However, it's easy to get lost in story, mostly thanks to DiCaprio's performance.
July 5, 2019
A bold, brutal, beautiful movie and an impeccably directed work of art.
April 17, 2019
It is a tremendous performance and DiCaprio gives it his all.
April 9, 2019
If ever there was any question over DiCaprio's commitment to his craft, his monolithic performance here stands as proof that he is without doubt one of the all-time greats.
April 5, 2019
"The Revenant" is everything a great movie should be. It's beautifully shot, wonderfully acted, and the movie speaks to you without having to carry on with dialogue-filled scenes.
March 30, 2019
While disguised as a tale of revenge, the heart of THE REVENANT is a tale of survival. It's an ode to the visceral beauty of nature and the relentless, savage force that is life.
February 22, 2019
Subtlety and thematic complexity aren't Iñárritu's strengths, so when The Revenant lets go of its "big ideas" and focuses on Glass' manhunt, things get really good.
February 21, 2019
So deep in the action is the camera you expect it to get smashed by an arrow at any moment.
January 17, 2019
Anchored by strong work from Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy, director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's follow-up to his Oscar-winning film "Birdman" has plenty of high points but suffers from an overstuffed 156-minute running time.
December 28, 2018
The Revenant is a film of mud, blood, and carnage set against unforgiving northern wastes of snow and freezing water.
November 1, 2018
The film is emotionally and thematically empty, using the gorgeous cinematography as a means of distraction from how detached the film is from the characters and their extraordinary circumstances.
October 5, 2018
Hardy has been a superb screen villain over time, perhaps never more so than in this brutal revenge drama.
