Movie Review The Revenant with Latest Movie Ratings


The Film Guide : Movie Review The Revenant : Latest Movie Ratings  
It's been a long time since an actor has impressed me to the extent that Leonardo Decaprio has in his latest offering "The Revenant". 

Literally meaning " back from the dead", the revenant is the story of survival of a pelt trader of the 1820s called Glass who gets left alone in the middle of a snow covered forest after being attacked by a bear. His urge to take revenge from a fellow traveler keeps him alive and motivates him to first fight death and then survive the harshest of conditions in order to avenge the death of his son and the betrayal that he faced.

Leonardo Decaprio leaves one speechless at times and the acting is so lifelike that one forgets for a while that it's Leo playing Glass. 

Tom Hardy does well to support Leo as the antagonist but it is Decaprio who leaves very little margin for anyone else to leave a mark on the viewers mind. To me the only other member of the cast that had an impact on my senses was the bear that mauled Glass and left him helpless.

Overall, I believe and hope that Leonardo Decaprio gets an Oscar for this because if this doesn't get him one nothing might ever.

The Hateful Eight Movie Review

Quentin Tarantino's new project The hateful eight is a western-action-comedy that blends the roughness of a western classic with the gore and flamboyance one associates with Tarantino. 

This story of bounty hunters making there way to a town to gain their rewards has great turns and twists and the entire cast mesmerizes the viewer and provides a treat that is worth a watch.

Kurt Russel and Samuel L Jackson give stellar performances and the entire movie doesn't let you lose interest till the very end.

All in all, the hateful eight scores well in all aspects and I would recommend it dearly.

Rating: 4/5
