They even killed his son in front of him.Man seeks revenge after being left for dead and seeing his son killed. No one had a good day. Painful. (9/10)
The movie is about Glass’s remarkable survival alone in the wilderness. He was fueled by the burning desire to get revenge on the man who left him to die and killed his son.No one had a good day. Painful. (9/10)
Nobody had a good day in this movie. It was painful to watch. But yet you always want to see what happens next. It reminded me of The Passion of the Christ, where you watch Jesus being tortured through the whole movie.
The Revenant is a great movie, but I wouldn’t want to watch it again. It makes you appreciate the life you have, no matter how miserable it may seem at times. There is always somebody else who has it worse.
