"The Revenant," directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu

Movie, 2015

Revenge family drama in the trappers’ Wild West, with a bear-attack, some mastery in muttering and portrayals of Indians which feel a little tired and old-fashioned. The sentiments and narrative also feel a little overdone, but against all these criticisms, the locations are stunning and brought out by some wonderful photography. The action sequences are full of grit and gore, and things are paced quite well. Those who enjoy the last man battling against the odds, there’s lots to commend here; for others, the going maybe a little tougher.
