In 1820s America, frontiersman and fur trapper Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his teenage son Hawk (Forrest Goodluck) join a pelt-gathering expedition. However, their party are attacked by Arikara Native Americans, who kill a number of the men. Glass then tries to lead the remainder of the group to safety, charting a new path to a U.S. fort. Unfortunately, he is soon mauled by a grizzly bear while hunting for food, and is horribly wounded. He is left in the care of roughneck John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy) and the young and inexperienced Jim Bridger (Will Poulter), while Hawk watches on in horror. Fitzgerald betrays him and leaves him buried alive in a shallow grave, but Glass nurses himself back to health and sets out to seek revenge. Alejandro González Iñárritu directed this pulse-pounding epic.~Daniel Gelb
Not only is the camera work superb but the filmmaker virtually takes you back to early American life in the West. The way the main character connects with his family and struggles through immense pain... I mean if a bearded millionaire who drives a Prius came near my cubs, I'd claw him nearly to death too. #oscarbuzzforthegrizzly
Best movie of 2015 without a doubt, Inarritu knocks it out the park with DiCaprio in a Man v Nature movie of the millennium! My only gripe is that my Best Buy story when I placed it to pick up handled the casing so badly, the outer casing had wear and tear it was bad, but I didn't want to complain I needed this movie!
Worth the buy.
Always a great picture on an OLED.
2 for $20
No Atmos but at least a 7.1
What a movie !!! It is an absolute work of art. The people who say it is dark, moody and depressing should not be watching it at all. It does an excellent job of portraying life in the wilderness in the 1800's of men who trapped furs for a living and lived a very raw life just to survive. I honestly do not know how Leonardo DiCaprio ever managed to live through this movie while it was being made - I was frozen the whole time and felt like I was right there with him & the other trappers and Indians. Life back then was horrible and for the men that chose trapping in the wild during the time that Indians stalked everywhere; they really had a rough life. Eating raw fish & meat and even rotten food was just the way they had to take it sometimes, to survive. The Cinematographer Lubezki and the Director Alejandro certainly deserved awards for their skills and talents. I am going to look up the movie "Man in the Wilderness" with Richard Harris just to compare how the story was portrayed differently. This is an incredible movie, which certainly entertained me, even if it was hard to believe that the main character could survive so many unbelievable threats to his life!
