The Revenant (Drama 2015)

So as a movie it was OK, but it really wasn't worth all the hype. I'm sure I could think of a handful of films that were of the same quality that didn't get a bunch of accolades or attention either.

What I'll give this film is its style and cinematography. Many shots were pretty well done and all of the makeup for DiCaprio freezing in the snow were spot on. The story was fair but very linear as well. I suppose DiCaprio acted like ass off and got ransacked by a bear so that deserved best actor...we'll give him this one.

It is just a rental though. A very slow rental because the action is equally as slow.
Rating - B
