The Revenant is a masterpiece in terms of direction and acting but I wasn’t impressed by the screenplay. I don’t think there is any other movie has been able to showcase DiCaprio’s talent like The Revenant does. If you’ve seen Birdman, then you already have an idea what to expect from this movie in terms of direction. The landscapes are incredible and so is the camera work. Due to lack of a strong script, it gets a little boring sometimes.
Oscar Verdict- The Revenant is leading this year’s Oscars nominations like the Birdman did last year. But I highly doubt it will win the Best Picture as it doesn’t have a great screenplay.
IMDb-“A frontiersman on a fur trading expedition in the 1820s fights for survival after being mauled by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team.”
