Well, I finally got around to seeing this movie last night. Caught the late showing and didn’t get home till 12.30am but it’s all good. Most folk are getting excited about Deadpool at the moment, which to be honest, doesn’t interest me in the slightest. I really am done with the Marvel Movies and I couldn’t care less if it’s R rated. Anyway, The Revenant was a beautifully shot movie with stunning photography and excellent performances from Leo and Tom Hardy. The soundtrack was perfect and although the film ran close to three hours, I really didn’t feel like it dragged on at all. The pacing was excellent. I came out feeling excited about going to the movies again. Something that hadn’t happened for some time. The plot was very straightforward. At the end of the day it’s a tale of revenge, but the whole package of sound, the visuals and the performances elevated this movie into a classic for me. The much talked about bear scene was incredibly tense and I though the CGI was excellent.

It’s both a brutal and brilliant movie. I really can’t find any fault with it at all. My highest recommendation.
