Michael Dang’s review published on Letterboxd:
A dark tale of a father's revenge against the man that murdered his son. I have to give so much respect for Leo and every actor that had to endure the harsh cold to film this movie. Although not Leo's greatest role, he still showed so much emotion and pain and he didn't even have to say a word. Each time he thinks he's safe, another shit storm would hit and forces him to fight to barely survive.
I loved the many 360 shots, it's like I'm viewing a new world each time the director does it. And my god the score, every time it came on it just intensified every scene and put me on the edge of my seat. Along with every arrow that pierced a white man or every shot that hit a native indian. No one was safe from the warfare.
The Revenant, a well acted film that shows the unbelievable true story about a man's revenge. I honestly think Leo should finally get that Oscar, even if this isn't his best role. The amount of hardship and commitment to this role was astounding. The shit he had to go through to film this...goddamn.
