The Revenant Reviews

August 29, 2019
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.

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.

The Revenant is like Iñárritu's last effort, Birdman, in that it's a movie that convinces you it's more significant and important than it is, when it's really just pretty and kinda dumb.
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.
January 9, 2019
...it's a drawn out exercise in excruciation.
December 28, 2018
The Revenant is a film of mud, blood, and carnage set against unforgiving northern wastes of snow and freezing water.
November 10, 2018
Purveys an air of faux spiritualism, and, ironically on a similar bent to Twelve Years A Slave, it confuses epic with meaningful, and sadism with attrition.
November 3, 2018
With all of its technical virtuosity, The Revenant nevertheless has little soul. DiCaprio's performance is a tortured master class in method re-acting, but all of the prolonged suffering turns gratuitous.
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 25, 2018
The Revenant was heralded as one of the best films of the year before a frame was ever viewed, but this film does not deserve to be in that conversation.
October 5, 2018
Hardy has been a superb screen villain over time, perhaps never more so than in this brutal revenge drama.
