After 3 hours of experiencing The Revenant I felt chills the rest of the night, almost as if I were sick. Sure, this could (and probably) was a coincidence, but I couldn’t doubt the power that this movie can bare on one’s being. No one can watch movies like this and not have a little part of them taken away.
I mean, after seeing Leonardo DiCaprio gut a dead horse and crawl inside it for warmth, no one can forget that.
The Revenant is unlike anything you’ve ever seen at the movies in recent years. I knew going in that it was going to be a big film, but I didn’t know I would be short-changing it by just saying “big.” It’s epic, in every sense of the word; In scope, in beauty, in talent, and epically breathtaking.
