In the 1820s, a frontiersman named Hugh Glass sets out on a path of vengeance against those who left him for dead after a bear mauling.
THE BUZZ: More than worthy of its place on countless top 10 lists this year is Alejandro González Iñárritu's brutal and naturalistic follow-up to Birdman, which you might wind up watching with your hands mostly covering your eyes after the Leo vs. bear scene that everyone is talking about. The film is convincing in so many ways; namely, reinforcing our opinion that Tom Hardy should mainly play bad guys.
This film is shot depicting the eighteen century. It is about a frontier man on a fur trading expedition. He is mauled by a bear and he fights for survival as he is left considered dead by his colleagues. His own team hunting members leave him for dead and how he survives all odds is the crux of the film. The tagline is one who has returned from the dead. The movie is rated R for strong frontier combat and violence. Also there are scenes of sexual assault, brief nudity and foul language. The film is unpredictable and a suspenseful adventure with many surprises.
