Review The Revenant

  • Tahun: 2015
  • Genre: Action / Adventure / Drama / History / Western
  • Produksi: Regency Enterprises, RatPac Entertainment, New Regency Pictures, Anonymous Content
  • Sutradara: Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
  • Pemeran: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson

Di akhir tahun 1823, Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) memandu kelompok pemburu bulu/kulit binatang yang dipimpin oleh Kapten Andrew Henry (Domhnall Gleeson). Ketika dia dan anaknya sedang berburu, perkemahan mereka diserang oleh sekelompok suku Indian Arikara. Banyak korban berjatuhan, dan sisanya berhasil menyelamatkan diri dengan perahu.

Glass memandu mereka kembali ke Fort Kiowa lewat jalan darat yang membuat mereka meninggalkan sebagian besar hasil buruan di tepian sungai.

Ketika sedang melihat sekeliling perkemahan, Glass diserang oleh induk beruang yang membuatnya luka sangat parah. John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy) menyarankan agar Glass dibunuh saja agar tidak menghambat perjalanan mereka.

Sang kapten yang tidak tega melakukannya, memberikan upah yang besar bagi siapa yang mau menjaganya hingga Glass mati dan menguburkannya secara layak.

Fitzgerald bersedia dengan niat untuk mengganti penghasilannya yang kurang karena hasil buruan yang ditinggalkan. Selain itu, anak Glass dan seorang pemuda juga bersedia bersama Glass dan merawatnya hingga mati.

Hawk, putra Glass, yang sedari awal berseteru dengan Fitzgerald karena perkataannya yang rasis, ditikam hingga mati olehnya di depan mata Glass yang tidak berdaya.

Keesokan paginya, Fitzgerald membangunkan Bridger (Will Poulter) untuk segera pergi dari situ karena takut ada serangan dari suku Indian. Di tengah kepanikan, mereka menguburkan Glass seadanya dalam kondisi hidup.

Setelah jauh berjalan, Fitzgerald berkata jujur bahwa dia telah berbohong kepada Bridger tentang serangan suku Indian. Hingga sampai di Fort Kiowa dan bertemu kapten pun, Fitzgerald tetap berbohong demi mendapatkan upahnya dan Bridger tidak sudi menerima upah yang diberikan karena perasaannya yang sedang berkecamuk.

Sementara itu, Glass berusaha bangkit dan mengobati dirinya sendiri, lalu menceburkan diri ke sungai demi menghindari serangan suku Arikara.

Di perjalanan, Glass bertemu dengan seorang pengungsi suku Pawnee, dan mereka berbagi daging bison untuk dimakan. Di tengah badai, Hikuc membangun kemah kecil untuk Glass berlindung dan sekaligus sebagai cara untuk mengobati sakitnya.

Setelah badai berlalu, Glass terbangun dari mimpinya. Dia sudah merasa lebih sehat dan berjalan kembali. Dia menemukan mayat Hikuc digantung oleh kelompok pemburu asal Prancis.

Dan mereka juga menyekap seorang wanita dari suku Arikara. Glass membebaskan wanita itu, membunuh beberapa pemburu lainnya, dan mengambil kembali kuda milik Hikuc untuk ditunggangi.

Keesokan paginya, Glass diserang oleh suku Arikara dan berhasil lolos karena jatuh ke jurang yang menyebabkan kuda tunggangannya mati dan dia mengalami beberapa luka. Badai kembali menerpa, dan Glass terpaksa membongkar isi perut kudanya dan berlindung di dalamnya.

Glass berhasil ditemukan oleh kapten dan pasukannya yang kembali melakukan pencarian setelah seorang pemburu Prancis yang selamat datang ke Fort Kiowa dengan membawa tempat minum milik Glass sebagai alat barter.

Fitzgerald yang sadar kalau Glass masih hidup, kabur dari Fort Kiowa setelah membongkar isi brankas milik perusahaan. Dan Bridger selamat dari hukuman atas pembelaan Glass.

Kapten Henry dan Glass mengejar Fitzgerald ke gunung. Setelah mereka berpisah, Henry dibunuh oleh Fitzgerald dan kepalanya dikuliti.

Glass berhasil memancing Fitzgerald dengan taktiknya, dan mereka bertarung dengan sengit hingga terjatuh ke jurang dan sampai di tepian sungai. Ketika Glass hendak membunuhnya, dia melihat suku Arikara di seberang sungai.

Teringat ucapan Hikuc, Glass memberikan Fitzgerald kepada mereka untuk dibunuh. Setelahnya, suku Arikara melewati Glass yang tampak lelah dan terluka, tetapi mereka tidak membunuhnya. Dalam rombongan itu, ada wanita yang diselamatkan oleh Glass yang ternyata adalah wanita suku Arikara yang mereka cari selama ini.

Berbagai Kendala dalam Produksi

Berbagai Kendala dalam Produksi

Rencana produksi film ini sudah dimulai sejak tahun 2001, bahkan sebelum novelnya diterbitkan. Tapi baru di tahun 2011, setelah Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu dipilih sebagai sutradara, proyek ini mulai berjalan yang diawali dengan penulisan naskah oleh Mark L. Smith dan Inarritu. Proyek ini sempat terhenti karena Inarritu diminta untuk membuat film lainnya.

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) adalah film tersebut yang berhasil membawa banyak Oscar bagi Inarritu, diantaranya adalah Best Director dan Best Original Screenplay untuknya, serta Best Picture . Setelah menyelesaikan syuting film itu di tahun 2013, Inarritu melanjutkan proyek The Revenant kembali yang memulai syuting di bulan Oktober 2014.

Syuting dihentikan di bulan Desember karena adanya badai salju di Montana, sebagai lokasi syuting mereka. Rencana libur 2 minggu bertambah menjadi 6 minggu karenanya.

Inarritu bersikeras hanya menggunakan pencahayaan alami saja tanpa alat bantu, yang membuat banyak kru kesulitan karena ketidakpuasan Inarritu terhadap pengambilan gambar. Infonya, banyak kru yang mengundurkan diri atau dipecat.

Syuting sempat pindah ke Italia, tepatnya di Alife. Dan untuk adegan terakhir, mereka mengambil lokasi di pegunungan di Argentina, dekat Rio Olivia, salah satu puncak tertinggi di negara itu.

Mereka terpaksa melakukan syuting di sana karena lokasi semula, yaitu di Kanada, tidak bisa digunakan karena cuaca disana sudah mulai hangat dan salju sudah mulai mencair.

Kesulitan melakukan syuting di alam bebas yang jauh dari masyarakat, menimbulkan banyak kesulitan bagi kru dan para aktornya. Meski banyak kru yang keluar, dengan dedikasi yang tinggi, akhirnya mereka berhasil menyelesaikan syuting pada bulan Agustus 2015. Bujet yang semula hanya $60 juta, di akhir produksi menggelembung menjadi $135 juta.

Siapakah Hugh Glass?

Siapakah Hugh Glass

Hugh Glass adalah seorang pemandu, pemburu, pedagang, dan petualang yang pernah hidup sekitar tahun 1783 – 1833. Kisah terkenal darinya adalah dimana dia nyaris tewas karena bertarung dengan beruang yang membuatnya luka sangat parah.

Kisah legendaris ini sudah diangkat ke layar lebar sebelum The Revenant , yaitu Man in the Wilderness [1971], meski menggunakan nama Zachary Bass.

Kisahnya yang harus menempuh perjalanan sejauh 200 mil (320 km) menuju Fort Kiowa setelah ditinggalkan oleh kelompoknya dalam keadaan luka parah dan tak berdaya tanpa perbekalan apapun adalah sebuah cerita yang melegenda di daerah Dakota Selatan.

Pertama kali kisah ini dipublikasikan ialah di jurnal The Port Folio pada tahun 1825. Lalu kemudian diangkat ke media cetak ke seluruh negeri. Banyak hal yang tidak akurat di dalam film ini dengan kisah aslinya yang masih terselubung ketidakjelasan juga karena kabut legenda yang pekat dalam hidup Glass.

Dalam fakta aslinya, Glass tidak pernah menikah dengan suku Indian manapun, apalagi memiliki anak darinya. Di dalam film, dia menikah dengan wanita dari suku Pawnee dan memiliki putra bernama Hawk. Hal ini dibantah oleh para ahli sejarah.

Fakta yang lain lagi, adalah ucapan Fitzgerald yang ingin pindah ke Texas dan menjadi Texas Ranger. Dalam sejarah, di tahun tersebut, Texas belum termasuk ke dalam perserikatan Amerika, karena masih menjadi salah satu provinsi di Mexico.

Sebuah Masterpiece

Sebuah Masterpiece

Peraih 3 Oscar dari 12 nominasi, The Revenant juga berhasil meraup penghasilan sebesar $183 juta dari peredaran di Amerika Utara saja. Hal ini membuktikan kualitas film yang berbanding lurus dengan nilai komersil yang dimilikinya. Meski kandungan ceritanya berat, tetapi bisa tetap dinikmati oleh para penonton dari kalangan manapun.

Leonardo DiCaprio membuktikan jika dirinya adalah aktor papan atas dengan kualitas mumpuni. Dia rela memakan hati bison secara mentah demi penghayatan karakternya, bahkan hingga terkena Hypothermia berkali-kali selama syuting, dan berhasil mendapat Oscar sebagai Best Actor . Sungguh pengorbanan yang tidak sia-sia.

Dan Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu juga membuktikan kehandalannya dalam menciptakan film berkualitas dengan meraih Oscar sebagai Best Director secara berturut-turut. Perlu diketahui, Ini adalah prestasi yang langka.

Tercatat, hanya John Ford (1940 & 1941) dan Joseph L. Mankiewicz (1949 & 1950) yang memiliki prestasi serupa. Bahkan sutradara sekelas Steven Spielberg pun belum pernah meraih prestasi ini.

The Revenant adalah sebuah karya masterpiece perfilman Hollywood. Aura dendam yang tumbuh di kerasnya kehidupan dalam ganasnya rimba belantara, mengharuskan insan untuk melupakan moral sejenak demi menyelamatkan nyawanya. Simak keindahan cinematography kelas Oscar yang mendukung kesuraman kisah survival ini di layar Netflix sekarang juga.

‘World’s Oldest Pyramid’ in Indonesia? A Study Draws Skepticism

The study, under investigation by its publisher, has fueled a dispute over the age of a partially excavated site and prompted warnings about the dangers of nationalist mythmaking.

  • Published Jan. 3, 2024 Updated Jan. 8, 2024

In a mountainous corner of Indonesia lies a hill, dotted with stone terraces, where people come from around the country to hold Islamic and Hindu rituals. Some say the site has a mystical air, or even that it might hold buried treasure.

The partially excavated site, Gunung Padang, is a relaxing place to spend an afternoon. It’s also at the center of a raging debate.

Archaeologists say that the hill is a dormant volcano and that ceramics recovered there so far suggest that humans have been using the site for several hundred years or more. But some Indonesians, including an earthquake geologist and a president who left office in 2014, have suggested that the site may have been built far earlier by an as-yet-undiscovered ancient civilization. Their narrative has spread for more than a decade within the country but not very far beyond it — until recently .

In 2022, a Netflix documentary series, “ Ancient Apocalypse, ” drew on the geologist's research for an episode about Gunung Padang. And in October, the geologist published an article in an international scientific journal that has fueled an international dispute over questions of science, ethics and ancient history.

Sunlight pokes through trees that border a green field dotted with stone slabs.

Archaeologists say the study’s most contentious conclusion — that Gunung Padang may be “the oldest pyramid in the world” because its deepest layer appears to have been “sculpted” by humans up to 27,000 years ago — is problematic because it is not based on physical evidence. Indonesia had no history of pyramid construction, they say, and humans in the Paleolithic era , which ended more than 10,000 years ago, could not have constructed pyramids. (The pyramids of Giza in Egypt are only about 4,500 years old.)

The study’s New Jersey-based publisher says it is now conducting an internal investigation, meaning that the journal is “examining concerns shared by the archaeological community.” Several archaeologists have aired their concerns publicly, saying the study is “ not worthy of publication ” and that the geologist’s claim that the hill was built by humans “ just doesn’t make sense .”

In response, the study’s lead author, the earthquake geologist Danny Hilman Natawidjaja, says it has been misunderstood. His supporters include Graham Hancock, the British journalist who starred in the Netflix series and has argued — to his own critics — that archaeologists should be more open to theories that challenge academic orthodoxy.

“This judge-jury-and-executioner model of archaeology, where they can define what is and what is not evidence — what is and is not acceptable as evidence — isn’t helpful in the long term for the progress of human knowledge ,” Mr. Hancock said in a telephone interview.

Gold in that hill?

Gunung Padang lies near the city of Bandung on Java, Indonesia’s most populous island. Excavation began in the early 1980s, said Lutfi Yondri, an archaeologist with the Bandung provincial government.

Young Indonesians inspired by quixotic efforts to discover lost pyramids in Bosnia later promoted the idea that pointy hills could be hiding lost pyramids, Mr. Lutfi said. President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono’s staff organized forums to explore that question, as well as unproven speculation that Gunung Padang might contain buried treasure.

Archaeologists pushed back from the start. But Mr. Yudhoyono’s administration continued to finance excavation work at Gunung Padang, and he said after visiting in 2014, near the end of his 10-year term in office, that it could be “the largest prehistoric building in the world."

The pyramid narrative “has some nationalistic edge to it, and it’s backed by a former president,” said Noel Hidalgo Tan, an archaeologist at the Southeast Asian Regional Center for Archaeology and Fine Arts in Bangkok.

“That’s why it’s a myth that refuses to die,” he said.

Mr. Yudhoyono’s assistant referred questions to Andi Arief, who once organized forums about Gunung Padang as a member of the president’s staff. Mr. Arief responded to an inquiry but did not make himself available for an interview.

Science or illusion?

Mr. Natawidjaja, the geologist who led the October study, said that he began researching the site in 2011. At the time, he was studying an active fault in the area and noticed that Gunung Padang’s pointy shape made it stand out in a landscape of eroded hillsides.

President Joko Widodo cut off financing for the research after assuming office in 2014. Mr. Natawidjaja later published his findings in a recent edition of Archaeological Prospection . The study’s methods and principles are the same ones that he would use to analyze earthquakes, he said in a Zoom interview.

“I’m just changing the subject from active faults to pyramids,” he said.

Several archaeologists said the study’s major problem is that it dated the human presence at Gunung Padang based on radiocarbon measurements of soil from drilling samples — not of artifacts recovered from the site.

“The lesson is that radiocarbon dates are not magic, and have important caveats around their interpretation,” the archaeologist Rebecca Bradley wrote in a 2016 critique of Mr. Natawidjaja’s preliminary findings. (She said in an email that his recently published study struck her as “a more organized recapitulation of the same old stuff.”)

Mr. Tan, the archaeologist in Bangkok, described the study’s attempt to link the soil’s age to human activity as its “biggest logical fallacy.” The soil’s age is not surprising because soil accumulates over time and deeper layers tend to be older, he added. “But it’s not soil that is tied to construction activity. It’s not soil that’s tied to, say, a fire pit, or soil that’s tied to a burial.”

“It’s just soil,” he said.

Ceramics and other evidence from the upper layers of Gunung Padang indicates that humans were there as early as the 12th or 13th centuries, and that they built structures atop natural rock formations, said Mai Lin Tjoa-Bonatz, an archaeologist who has conducted research in Indonesia.

“There could have been some people before, but they didn’t leave anything that we can date, so far,” said Professor Tjoa-Bonatz, who teaches at Humboldt University in Berlin.

Harry Truman Simanjuntak, an Indonesian archaeologist, said he also saw the study’s pyramid claim as unsubstantiated.

“There are always scientists who are illusionists and practice pseudoscience, seeking knowledge that is not based on data,” he said.

Under investigation

The internal investigation of the Archaeological Prospection paper was confirmed by Wiley, the journal’s publisher. Eileen G. Ernenwein, a co-editor of the journal, declined an interview request.

In an email, Mr. Natawidjaja defended his work and said that the investigation concerned “a matter of scientific disagreement.” Soil samples were legitimate evidence for assessing human involvement at Gunung Padang, he added, in part because the soil used by ancient builders was used to encase human-built structures.

“The rigorous peer-reviewed publication process of our findings in a reputable journal underscores the scientific validity and merit of our work,” he wrote.

Mr. Hancock, who described himself on “Ancient Apocalypse” as “enemy No. 1 to archaeologists,” said that the program had surely contributed to the level of “vituperation and attack” that Mr. Natawidjaja now faces over the study.

In 2022, the Society for American Archaeology said in an open letter to Netflix and the show’s production company, ITN, that the series “devalues the archaeological profession on the basis of false claims and disinformation” — an argument Mr. Hancock vigorously rejected . Netflix and ITN declined to comment for this article.

Mr. Hancock has argued that archaeologists should not dismiss the potential existence of lost ancient civilizations, in part because so much land was submerged when the last ice age ended roughly 11,700 years ago .

“To say not enough work has been done yet, more work needs to be done to settle this matter — that’s fair enough,” Mr. Hancock said of the recent study. “But to basically rubbish the whole thing from the outset and say that this is a preposterous claim that flies in the face of everything we know about the past? That’s not helpful.”

On a recent afternoon at Gunung Padang, caretakers of the site said that Mr. Natawidjaja’s research supports what their ancestors have always said: that the site is the handiwork of an ancient civilization. Some people have reported seeing mysterious visions of prehistoric figures there, they added.

“We are confident that this is man-made, not natural,” one of the caretakers, Zenal Arifin, said over a cup of sweetened coffee near the site’s information center.

President Joko’s administration is mostly, but not entirely, staying out of the fray.

Hilmar Farid, the director general of culture at the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology, said that the ministry was not involved in debates about Gunung Padang’s age. But he also said the latest research on the site is “apparently inadequate to support the theory that this is a human-made pyramid.”

“From the perspective of someone like me, who has to mobilize resources to support certain activities,” he said, “this is certainly the last priority.”

Tak hanya itu, bintang utamanya, Leonardo DiCaprio, akhirnya meraih Oscar pertamanya lewat film ini setelah tiga kali dinominasikan sebagai aktor utama terbaik. Tom Hardy yang menjadi lawan main Leonardo juga meraih nominasi Oscar pertamanya untuk kategori aktor pendukung terbaik.

Sinopsis 'The Revenant'

Seperti dikabarkan detikHOT, DiCaprio bermain sebagai Glass, pemburu berpengalaman yang menjadi penunjuk arah dalam ekspedisi yang dipimpin oleh Andrew Henry (Domnhall Gleeson). John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy), salah satu anggota tim muak dengan betapa ribetnya ekspedisi yang mereka lakukan. Tak hanya medan yang berat, mereka juga harus berhadapan dengan penduduk asli yang membenci mereka setengah mati.

Di hutan Glass diserang oleh beruang yang akhirnya membuatnya sekarat. Luka fisiknya terlalu berat. Andrew Henry menyuruh awak krunya untuk menjaga Glass yang sepertinya tidak akan hidup.

Fitzgerald menerima tawaran itu mengingat dolar yang diberikan sangatlah menggiurkan. Yang terjadi, Fitzgerald membiarkan Glass terkubur dalam keadaan hidup untuk menghemat tenaga. Ketika Fitzgerald menghabisi nyawa Hawk (Forrest Goodluck), anak Glass yang merupakan hartanya yang paling berharga, Glass tidak ada pilihan lain untuk tetap bertahan hidup dan membalaskan dendamnya.

Ada begitu banyak dongeng tentang pembalasan dendam. Tarantino menghabiskan separuh kariernya untuk menceritakan kisah tentang orang-orang yang memburu nyawa. 'The Revenant' tidak seperti apa yang Anda bayangkan.

Dengan latar 1823, film ini mengajak kita bertualang dan menyaksikan betapa kerasnya hidup manusia kala itu. Iñárritu bahkan tidak perlu memberikan pernyataan soal perseteruan penduduk asli dengan "penjajah" untuk menggambarkan betapa kerasnya hidup pada zaman itu. Skrip yang ditulis Iñárritu dan Mark L. Smith benar-benar terfokuskan kepada perjalanan Glass dan hubungannya dengan anak dan mendiang istrinya.

Revenant Season 1 Review – A stylish, slightly slow horror K-Drama

Revenant Season 1 Review - A stylish, slightly slow horror K-Drama

This review of the 2023 Disney+ K-Drama series Revenant Season 1 does not contain spoilers.

The Disney+ K-Drama Revenant is, in many ways, a classic horror story, complete with dark-haired girls, spooky reflections, and demonic objects. It isn’t particularly scary, at least not in its early going, but it is at least creepy, boasting some creative imagery and an almost comfortingly familiar tone.

But it’s restrained, and a little languid in its pacing, which means seasoned genre aficionados may find it – or at least the first four episodes, on which this review is based – to be a little difficult to really invest in.

Revenant Season 1 review and plot summary

Anyway, here’s the idea. As all good supernatural stories must, this one opens with a death, that of folklore professor Gu Gang-mo ( Jin Seon-kyu ). It might look like suicide, but not quite – he’s haunted by an entity with a wild, almost electrified barnet, which becomes a recurring visual motif throughout the first few episodes.

The hair is usually haloing the silhouette of San-yeong ( Kim Tae-ri ), Gang-mo’s estranged daughter whose mother told her he died in a car crash when she was little.  Following Gang-mo’s death, San-yeong is introduced to her grandmother for the first time and bequeathed a hair accessory that turns out to be possessed by a dangerous demon.

When various bizarre happenings and bodies begin mounting up around San-yeong, she turns to an enigmatic professor, Hae-sang ( Oh Jung-se ), who can not only see the ghouls but has a long and traumatic history with them that ties him intimately into Hae-sang’s familial story.

Detective Lee Hong-sae ( Hong Kyung ), though, is primarily concerned with the bodies.

There’s nothing especially novel about this setup. However, these three core characters are instantly engaging. They’re operating on very different wavelengths, but the performances are nuanced, the writing is understated, and the potential for the dynamic to be twisted and turned in subsequent episodes is one of the primary motivations for pushing through the hour-plus episodes.

It’s certainly not the pacing. It’s a good job these characters are likable since Revenant is keen to spend as much time with them as possible, and none of it is hurried. The show is comfortable in its aesthetic and with its material, so it’s content to lean on cheap visual tricks or snippets of gore and brutality rather than giving us the nastiness up-front. It’s a reserved approach that I suspect might be temporary, perhaps in service of a messier back half of the season, but it can sometimes run the risk of being a little laborious and overly familiar.

Is Revenant good or bad?

There’s certainly a lot to like about Revenant ’s construction, though. It’s fronted by very capable actors who have an engaging dynamic, and it’s very confident in its ability to repurpose horror staples in service of a story that is yet to fully reveal itself but has all kinds of obvious potential.

Of course, some viewers, put off by the overlong episodes and unhurried pace, might not get that far. But that’s the risk this kind of psychological horror must necessarily take in order to develop a bedrock of human drama before things start getting really crazy.

Is Revenant worth watching?

It’ll be popular regardless – the stars, the genre, and the style just lend itself to a frothing audience who are forever looking for exactly this kind of thing.

But it’s easy enough to recommend Revenant anyway. If it doesn’t improve, it’ll still end up being pretty good, and if it does, then we might very well be in for a real treat.

‘Revenant’ review – a thrilling, immersive horror K-drama

A slow burn that leaves cheap thrills at the door, settling you in for a layered, fuller definition of horror

Revenant begins, as most horror stories do, with a death on a dark, stormy night. Folklore professor Gu Kang-mo (Jin Seon-kyu) is running from an unknown entity recognisable only by a head of wild, floating hair. A slip in vigilance costs him his life, setting off a chain of bloody events with his daughter Gu San-yeong ( Twenty-Five Twenty-One ’s Kim Tae-ri) in the dead centre.

Unbeknownst to San-yeong, the hair accessory her late father had bequeathed to her carries traces of a violent past, resulting in San-yeong being possessed by the same demonic entity that her father was running from. After people around San-yeong start dying indiscriminately, she has no choice but to reach out to cryptic Professor Yeom Hae-sang (Oh Jung-se), who can see ghosts and demons.

Yeom – who has his own bone to pick with the supernatural – reveals to her that the entity possessing San-yeong grows by fulfilling its host’s base desires before consuming them altogether. Now in a race against time, San-yeong and Hae-sang must get to the bottom of this terrifying mystery while also keeping Detective Lee Hong-sae (Hong Kyung) off their trail.

Having already proven her acting chops in hits like Mr. Sunshine and The Handmaiden , Kim Tae-ri expertly balances her role as a struggling youngster and a malicious, possibly centuries-old entity spectacularly. Contrasting the expressiveness of San-yeong’s character is Oh Jung-se’s Yeom Hae-sang – he is laser-focused, mysteriously understated, annoyingly persistent and just slightly unhinged.

Bringing a fresh dose of neutrality to these two extremes is Hong Kyung as Lee Hong-sae. This man just wants to go to work and get his promotion, but keeps getting entangled in weird cases thanks to his partner. Despite his very millennial sense of resignation, Hong-sae is quickly being set-up as the most human of this trio through subtle exchanges that prove he does care about something more than his bank account.

Horror aficionados who thrive on jump-scares and gore might be in for a disappointing run – or so it seems from the show’s first four episodes. Revenant is a slow burn in the purest sense of the word. Part of this approach can be attributed to the show’s attempt to build a layered, fuller definition of horror, with a focus on the psychological. Juxtaposed with the supernatural are the terrors that humans inflict upon each other, built through sub-plots featuring negligent, abusive parents or evil shamans who imprison and murder young girls. Real-life horror feeds its supernatural counterpart – even the entity possessing San-yeong acts up in particular when she’s experiencing “dark” thoughts.

The show also cleverly skirts the traps of explanations becoming expositions. Much of the source material comes from Korean folklore, but Revenant believes in showing rather than telling – a simple device that horror movies often underestimate. There are moments where information is all too conveniently placed, but one can forgive said transgressions simply because of the presentation.

The only drawback here is that, for a horror show, the pacing of Revenant is surprisingly languid. So far, we only have piecemeal information about the entity possessing San-yeong. Said demon’s bloodthirst aside, the creepiest thing it has done so far is carve out the eyes of a child’s doll with a knife for getting on its nerves. While we’re sure the pacing will pick up in the next few episodes, we’re currently left in the weird limbo of deciding to wait until things get good or bail while we’re ahead.

Revenant is available to stream on Disney+ in select regions

Now streaming on:

Great film has the power to convey the unimaginable. We sit in the comfort of a darkened theater or our living room and watch protagonists suffer through physical and emotional pain that most of us can’t really comprehend. Too often, these endurance tests feel manipulative or, even worse, false. We’re smart enough to “see the strings” being pulled, and the actor and set never fades away into the character and condition. What’s remarkable about Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu’s “The Revenant” is how effectively it transports us to another time and place, while always maintaining its worth as a piece of visual art. You don’t just watch “The Revenant,” you experience it. You walk out of it exhausted, impressed with the overall quality of the filmmaking and a little more grateful for the creature comforts of your life.

Iñárritu and co-writer Mark L. Smith set their tone early, staging a breathtaking assault on a group of fur trappers by Native Americans, portrayed not just as “enemies” but a violent force of nature. While a few dozen men are preparing to pack up and move on to their next stop in the great American wilderness, a scene out of “ Apocalypse Now ” unfolds. Arrows pierce air and flesh as the few surviving men flee to a nearby boat. It turns out that the tribe is seeking a kidnapped daughter of its leader, and will kill anyone who gets in their way. At the same time, we learn that one of the trappers, Hugh Glass ( Leonardo DiCaprio ) has a half-Native American son named Hawk (Forrest Goodluck).

Low on men and hunted, the expedition leader Andrew Henry ( Domhnall Gleeson ) orders that their crew return to its base, a fort in the middle of this snowy wilderness. John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy) disagrees, and the seeds of dissent are planted. He doesn’t trust Henry, and he doesn’t like Glass. In the midst of these discussions, Glass is away from the crew one day when he’s brutally attacked by a bear—the sequence is, without hyperbole, one of the most stunning things I’ve seen on film in a long time, heart-racing and terrifying. Glass barely survives the attack. It seems highly unlikely that he’ll make it back to the base. With increasingly dangerous conditions and a tribe of killers on their heels, they agree to split up. Most of the men will go back first while Fitzgerald, Hawk and a young man named Bridger ( Will Poulter ) will get a sizable fee to stay with Glass until he dies, giving him as much comfort as possible in his final days and the burial he deserves.

Of course, Fitzgerald quickly tires of having to watch a man he doesn’t care about die. He kills Hawk in front of an immobile Glass and then basically buries Hugh alive. As Bridger and Fitzgerald head back, Glass essentially rises from the dead (the word revenant means “one that returns after death or a long absence”) and begins his quest for vengeance. With broken bones, no food, and miles to go, he pulls himself through snow and across mountains, seeking the man who killed his son. He is practically a ghost, a man who has come as close to death as one possibly can but is unwilling to go to the other side until justice is done.

The bulk of “The Revenant” consists of this torturous journey, as Glass regains his strength and gets closer to home through sheer force of will. Iñárritu’s Oscar-winning cinematographer for “ Birdman ,” Emmanuel Lubezki (who also took a trophy for “ Gravity ” the year before and could easily make it three in a row for this work) shoots “The Revenant” in a way that conveys both the harrowing conditions and the artistry of his vision. The sky seems to go on forever; the horizon is neverending. He works in a color palette provided by nature, and yet enhanced. The snow seems whiter, the sky bluer. Many of his shots, especially in times of great danger like the opening attack and the bear scene, are unbroken — placing us in the middle of the action.

At other times, Lubezki’s choices recall his work on “The Tree of Life,” especially in scenes in the second half when Glass’s journey gets more mystical. And that’s where the film falters a bit.  Iñárritu  doesn’t quite have a handle on those second-half scenes and the 156-minute running time begins to feel self-indulgent as the film loses focus. When it centers on the conditions and the tale of a man unwilling to die, it’s mesmerizing. I just think there’s a tighter version, especially in the mid-section, that would be even more effective.

About that man: So much has been made of this film being DiCaprio’s “Overdue Oscar” shot that I feel like his actual work here will be undervalued. Make no mistake. Should he win, it will not be some “Lifetime Achievement” win as we’ve seen in the past for actors who we all thought should have won for another film ( Paul Newman , Al Pacino , etc.). He’s completely committed in every terrifying moment, pushing himself further than he ever has before as an actor. Even just the physical demands of this protagonist would have been enough to break a lot of lesser actors, but it’s the way in which DiCaprio captures his internal fortitude that’s captivating—his body may be broken, but we believe he is unwilling to give up.

The minimal supporting cast is good, and it’s nice to see Gleeson continue to have an incredible 2015 (also in “ Brooklyn ,” “ Ex Machina ” and “ Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens ”). Tom Hardy is less effective, often going a little too heavy on the tics (wide eyes, shot up-close), but I think that’s a fault of the direction and not one of our best actors. In the end, this is DiCaprio’s film through and through, and he nails every challenging beat, literally throwing himself into this character that demands more of him physically than any other before. 

What would you do for vengeance? What conditions could you surmount to get it? Or would you just give up? Our favorite films often drop questions like these into our lives, allowing us to appreciate the world a little differently than before we saw them. “The Revenant” has this power. It lingers. It hangs in the back of your mind like the best classic parables of man vs. nature. It will stay there for quite some time.

Audience reviews for the revenant.

Exceptionally beautiful direction and screenplay by Iñárritu. Superb cinematography. Poignant soundtrack. Brilliant performances (although Hardy's mumbling was difficult to discern oftimes). Fantastic costumes and sound. There's nothing not to love about this graceful, poetic and haunting film.

revenant review indonesia

After being attacked by a bear, Hugh Glass must survive the perils of the wilderness and avenge the murder of his son. Brutal and raw, Leonardo DiCaprio's incredible performance deserves all its accolades, and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu is at top form, crafting an adventure that I wish more blockbusters would imitate. There's real tension in the conflicts, and the action scenes aren't jump-cutted to incomprehensible death. The second act is a little long, and I could've done without so many shots that jerk off to trees and sky. Overall, one of the best films of the year, this is a great adventure story.

As much as I really didn't care for his Oscar winning picture 'Birdman " Director Alejandro Gonzalez Innarito put together and presented A motion picture movie with a compelling combination of beautiful, brutality and compelling acting performances that I can remember in a film picture in some time. Inarritu brought long natural light, brilliant camera-tracking shots, placement that makes specific scenes take on an impressive sense of real. I was afraid that the appealing trailers may give away too much ongoing with this film, but once you see it all the way thru, there was much more meat on the bone to chew - Revenant is a western set film that is so intense on Survival and Revenge. I was getting myself prepared for a slow start and even slower character-developing as the movie progresses , but I got anything but that. It starts out brutally violent and blood gory,..in fact it literally " rains " with brutal graphic violence (remember how Saving Private Ryan war scene started out ?) there's an absolute impressive amount of attacks and escapes, and the motion and camera shots are always moving and enticing. I found myself constantly engaged anywhere from Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) to his son, to his comrades, to the surrounding area Much is going to talked about the Grizzly scene, which was as brutally savage and tantalizing as you can expect. And it's not a quick, clean brush with death either. It stretches and extends to you find yourself thinking ...."wow, when is this going to be over, ? " .....no way he is making it out of this "" .... the frame set of the camera doing this Bear scene is brilliant, just when you think, this has to be it, this has to be the end and this has to be a final escape, the brutal scene goes on, .and squeamish you are shown the bloody results of such an attack. DiCaprio's performance was outstanding from humble father and husband, to fallen victim who has to visually and physically experience a heart broken tragedy , to how he miraculousy finds a way to emerge from helplessness to a fierce never say die sole survivor who is relentless in his quest to not only survive but hunt for vengenance. I can't think of a more terrific acting performance by DiCaprio, that easily outshines his Gangs of New York, The Departure and Django Unchained. Revenant has a pace that can be compared to Castaway in that it has a mesmerizing slowness but it's unique in how it still engages and appeals to you. You can't pull away from it because of the creativity in either the characters, or how the way of survival, escapes or prey-hunting is being presented to you. John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy) keeps another half of it going because he is brilliantly ruthless - almost to a babbling psycho nut presence. Fitzgerald can sabotage or turn on a friend or foe at any given moment and turn. And he is corky in how he does it. And you can eventually get to a hold of why Fitz thinks and feels the way he does and takes the course of action he does to alleviate the crucial revenge hunt. And just when you thought that would be the end of Glass's tragedies and heartbreaks he is about discover another in an unsuspecting friend. And there is eventually the finale which not only includes again some graphic violence but some turning strategic combat methods as well. Interesting the plot and story write of the Revenant is pretty simple, however the combination of acting performances , action sequences and camera work and cinematography will be on a cult classic for many decades to come. From the snowy woods and mountains, to the murky trees of the forest, from the river waters and falls , to the group camp scenes, and there is also a well done music score as well. i spoke much about the bear scene, but expect to be almost in awe with the horse scene as well. Frankly speaking I have no doubt in my mind that the Revenant will be going away with the Oscar come February and we could see awards given away for best actor, best director , best cinematography, and most definitely ... Best Picture. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd have to give the Revenant a 9.0

See more reviews like this at chrisbreviews.blogspot.com First things first, steer clear of this one if you don't like either of the following; This movie is LONG. 3 hours long (including ads and credits). AND It is VERY gory. There's excessive violence, a lot of blood, and quite confronting conflict. Right, if you're still here, let's get on with the actual movie quality. The plot moves along very slowly, with bursts of tense or action sequences in between watching DiCaprio crawling through snow. It depends on your perspective, but these scenes were probably inserted by Director Iñárritu to demonstrate Hugh's recovery and to emphasise the underlying theme of survival and perseverance. Don't see it if you've got a short attention span. But, the plot, aside from its excessive length, is truly brilliant. It centres around revenge and there is constantly something posing a threat to the main character, even in those dull moments the freezing temperature causes Glass to do some quick thinking. And the relentless barrage of threats over 3 hours truly emphasises his achievement of survival, makes audiences admire his sheer determination, and makes you root for this character the whole way. Even in its conclusion, you remember everything he's endured throughout the movie and be in awe of the character. It's truly an amazing story, and what makes it even more amazing is that it's based on true events. The CGI, Special effects, and make up are all exemplary. And there's a lot of opportunities for them to shine. The most impressive example of this is the bear that mauls Glass. But, even though its minor to many, one of the biggest things that annoy me is that everyone except the good guys seem to be horrible at aiming! There's a scene with Glass on a horse riding parallel to an army of Indians and not one of them hit him! So plot convenience was my biggest irritation. The cast is nearly entirely male; consisting of Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Will Poulter, Domhnall Gleeson, Lukas Haas, and Kristoffer Joner. Obviously we all know that DiCaprio is nominated for an Oscar for his performance, and he's a big chance at finally winning. If he doesn't earn it on this performance, he never will. Because he was brilliant, despite having no speech nearly the entire time. And he's stolen the spotlight, but I don't think Tom Hardy was given enough credit as he deserved. I learned over the 3 hours to despise him, and he was an integral element in the overall quality of this movie and DiCaprio's performance. Young Will Poulter wasn't too bad either as the naïve and scared young hunter. Hugh Glass was of course an incredibly interesting and well-developed character. We see flashbacks of his deceased wife and parents telling him to survive and push the limits no matter what. This same message is delivered to Glass's son, and we are reminded of it throughout the movie, but we don't need to be to see that's its obviously been deep-seeded in Glass. That and his desire for revenge allows him to persist and endure even in the closest of death experiences and when all seems lost. Even I felt hopeless for him yet he somehow gets back up again. Hardy's character Fitz doesn't seem to have enough motivation aside from some strange sense of racism to kill Glass's son and have an uncontrollable hate for Glass. That was a slight downfall. With plenty of time to kill, they included plenty of genres. They include action, adventure, biographical, drama, history, thriller, war, and western. The setting was in the 1820's American winter. We can't forget the fantastic themes that the movie was centralised around. These are themes of survival, perseverance, revenge, family, love, and murder. To conclude, I thought this was a brilliant film, and it's not just me that thinks so, with the film scoring a whopping 12 nominations including best picture, best actor in a leading role, best actor in a supporting role, cinematography (which I loved due to the panoramic tracking shots for extended periods during battle sequences), and directing. Unfortunately, it was just too long and had a few too many plot conveniences and a couple underdeveloped characters.

The Revenant Prince

I actually had to pay attention to the tutorials for a change.

Review Platform:

Developer(s), publisher(s).

  • 🇺🇸 Nomina Games
  • 🇪🇺 Nomina Games

The Revenant Prince is the debut title from Nomina Games, a small, independent developer based in Indonesia. One look at the game clearly shows that it’s heavily inspired by the classic games that Nomina’s head, Darrell Wijaya, grew up with. Although this inspiration is clear, The Revenant Prince aims to be something different and not merely a retread. I appreciate the game’s quirky qualities and overall vision, but questionable design choices resulted in a clunky execution.

This title follows a modern-classic JRPG protagonist named Troy whose sullen exterior hides a good heart. A new recruit to the Lumerian Empire’s army, Troy’s inaugural mission results in him standing by helplessly as his platoon slaughters an entire village of innocents with no compunction. This obviously does not sit well, and with the help of his older sister Gabriella (a more seasoned soldier), he ends up deserting the army. With nowhere to go and on the brink of death in the frozen wastelands, he’s rescued by a leporine soul beast (anthropomorphic animal) named Farrah and her human friend Roland. Both are wary of him because he was part of the army they oppose, but they decide to give him the benefit of the doubt.

From that point on, the plot steadily veers off-kilter in terms of surrealism, absurdity, and even some creepy horror moments. That’s my erudite way of saying, “This story made no sense to me at all.” Even the big reveals that were supposed to explain it all… simply didn’t. The plot felt like a tangled mess of ideas that never quite gelled in a cohesive manner; it was riddled with holes, internal inconsistencies, and threads that were left hanging.

Speaking of inconsistent, that’s the best way to describe The Revenant Prince ’s overall tone. The game is at its best when it’s presented as a somber endeavor, yet NPCs often undermine that by breaking the fourth wall, expressing forms of JRPG self-awareness, and doing wink-wink-nudge-nudge things that feel completely random. I understand the need for occasional comic relief, but the juxtaposition of tragedy and parody was awkwardly done.

A wolf man in a gray shirt and flowing red hair stands in front of a bottle-lined shelf in a shop, talking about how he collects wigs. The red one is his favorite.

I appreciated the story’s emotionally stirring set pieces and the few characters who compelled me in spite of their limited screen time. I would happily play a spinoff game starring Farrah, the aforementioned leporine soul beast, because she’s the most intriguing character in the game. She has the most personality and made me want to know more about her mysterious past and the history of her people. Pity her screen time wasn’t more generous, because she had the most to tell. Lead protagonists like Troy are a dime a dozen in JRPGs, but I haven’t played enough with unique leads like Farrah.

Not only does the game have tons of dialogue and field-action decisions that can alter the game’s trajectory, but decisions made in battle have an impact as well. When enemies have low enough HP that one strike will kill them, you have the option to spare them, so choose wisely. Several story elements occur no matter what actions are taken, but other aspects of the game (e.g. how certain NPCs react to you) change depending on your choices.

A single playthrough takes about 8-10 hours, depending on how much side content and exploration you do. Explorable areas are fairly compact, but sometimes when you walk left, right, or down to another screen, the next screen has you at the bottom moving upward. This can be discombobulating for the directionally challenged.

When I finished the game, I thought it was going to be a Groundhog Day style endeavor where I’d repeat the same span of time until I got it “right.” Unfortunately, my first playthrough was a slog to a bad ending that never even gave me a New Game Plus option. I badly wanted the opportunity for a New Game Plus do-over where my stats, equipment, and items carry over, so I could conveniently “play for the story” and do things differently without having to start from scratch and grind all over again.

On a path outside the village shop, a townsperson stops the hero and says "Do yourself a favor and stay away from that place."

The clean and readable text is mostly free of technical errors, but there are instances of questionable word choice and several moments when the dialogue reads too stiffly or is disjointed. What’s cool is that talking to animals and otherworldly beings grants uniquely colored and styled dialogue boxes and fonts. Dialogue boxes have reasonably sized text, but the text and icons used in store menus are way too small. I also would have liked battle menus and ATB bars to be larger and easier to read.

Small fonts and icons are only the beginning of the painful shopping experience in The Revenant Prince . When you’re in equipment shops, the store menu doesn’t tell you what kinds of stat boots various pieces of equipment give you. It’s quite inconvenient to save, buy, equip, and evaluate something before deciding whether to keep it or to boot up a prior save and pass on it all together. I also dislike that the item shop menus don’t tell you quantities for particular items you already have in your inventory. Such quality-of-life elements have been RPG staples for decades now and their absence makes absolutely no sense to me.

Another poor example of game design here is the use of a “sphere grid” type system to put special points into character stats. Troy is the only playable character and has stat trees for attack, defense, and utility stats. Once you choose one to pump points into, you can’t switch to another until the current one is maxed out. Who in their right mind thought this was a good idea? Typical players want to be able to switch in and out of these trees at will and distribute available points into multiple stat trees.

Be sure to save often, because enemies of varying ferocity roam everywhere. Even early in the game, it’s possible to encounter both weak and ludicrously overpowered enemies even in the same encounter. I’m not sure what the motivation behind this was, but it does not make for smooth progression. The Revenant Prince is all over the place in terms of how powerful enemies in a given area are, leaving me in a near perpetual state of confusion. I could never tell if I was properly leveled for my current location, and progression constantly felt like one step forward and two steps back.

My benchmark is that if I don’t run away from a single battle in a hostile area, I should be good enough to take on the boss. That’s not the case here since, as mentioned earlier, some random battles must be fled from because they have enemies who can decimate you in one turn. Bosses themselves are immensely powerful and often merciless. You need to think quickly on your feet and use every item, weapon, and skill at your disposal to strategically bring them down. If you go down in battle, though, there is a cool mechanic where you have ten seconds to revive yourself and avoid a Game Over, provided you have revive items in your inventory.

In a moment of convenience, the game provides you with an item early on to adjust the encounter rates. Switching to the highest encounter rate made grinding easier. Conversely, if I was low on HP I could eliminate encounters entirely and hightail it back to town to heal up. I found enemies rather stingy with giving me money because the items and equipment I needed most were always stupidly expensive. I constantly felt like I had caviar needs on a canned tuna budget.

Battles themselves are akin to Final Fantasy ‘s Active Time Battles set to “active” mode where enemies will pound on you even as you’re scrolling through menus. Troy is the only one who actively fights (though he can summon companions for a quick assist) so keeping tabs on everything is not overwhelming.

Troy wields two swords--one blue and one red--in front of a group of tree and bug enemies while one of the green bug enemies says "Urgh!"

Because of the way the battles are designed, it’s best to play The Revenant Prince using a keyboard and mouse. Several buttons are mapped to usable and necessary functions: more so than your average JRPG. The A, S, and D keys toggle between three available weapons, while the Q, W, and E buttons are mapped to jab, strong, and special attacks. Using these buttons to toggle my moves and using the mouse to select my enemy targets on the fly took some practice, but soon felt workable after some time.

This is not a “turn off your brain and go” JRPG that can be played using instinct alone. I actually had to pay attention to the tutorials for a change. With practice, I found myself getting into a good rhythm during battles, slickly switching between melee weapons, ranged weapons, and shields on the fly to gain the best tactical leverage. There were times I felt like the response time between my key presses and the action on the screen was delayed, even when my ATB bars were full, though.

The button mapping for the keyboard is fine, but I still wish there was a way for players to change it. I also wish gamepad support was better, because playing with a gamepad was like trying to feed strained carrots to a fussy and inconsolable baby. The gamepad button mapping was wholly unintuitive, there was no way to change it, and I felt like I was fighting the game rather than flowing with it. I prefer to play games like this on a gamepad, so I was disappointed that using one in this case was practically a no-go.

I have little to say about the inoffensive soundtrack beyond the fact that the music is simply there. I found the music generally flat and flavorless. As a test, I played the game on mute for an hour, and I could barely tell the difference between that and playing with the sound on. There is nothing inherently bad about the music; most people who play the game will probably say the music is just fine and that I’m being overly picky. Music is a biggie for me, though, and it’s not a good sign when I want to turn off the game’s music and substitute my own.

The Revenant Prince was created using RPG Maker MV , but utilizes tons of original assets, making it one of the most lush and lovely RPGM games I’ve seen in a long time. Detailed sprites and beautifully crafted environments feature loads of animations that really make the game’s world feel alive. Major characters are given several well-drawn and expressive dialogue portraits. The sprite animations during battle are very well done, but though there are some nifty looking creatures, most of the enemies are palette swaps of the same few foes. At the end of the day, The Revenant Prince is a lovely looking game and its visual design is its strongest aspect.

Troy looks at ahead at a signpost in the snow, while a villager stands in the top right of the snowy landscape.

I almost feel bad bagging on The Revenant Prince as much as I did, because it’s clear that a lot of love was put into this project. Unfortunately, its few shining points are obscured by a massive dark cloud of flaws. I loved the visual design and the gameplay elements that required me to think a little differently. An RPG I can’t just play on autopilot is certainly intriguing. Sadly, the game’s faults are just too numerous for me to wave off. Try before you buy is the order of the day with The Revenant Prince , so I urge anyone interested in the game to take the available demo for a thorough test drive before committing.

Lovely graphics, unique gameplay mechanics.

Uninspired music, uneven difficulty throughout, no new game plus, lacks essential quality-of-life features.

Bottom Line

The Revenant Prince's best features are grossly outweighed by a laundry list of shortcomings.

Leonardo DiCaprio as Hugh Glass in The Revenant.

The Revenant review – gut-churningly brutal, beautiful storytelling

Birdman director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s new movie pitches Leonardo DiCaprio against nature, bears and Tom Hardy in a tale of revenge, retribution and primal violence

I t’s man versus bear. And bear wins. Or does it? Early reports of Alejandro González Iñárritu ’s intestine-straighteningly brutal and beautiful new western thriller The Revenant have understandably focused on one quite extraordinary scene. Nineteenth-century fur trapper and frontiersman Hugh Glass, played by Leonardo DiCaprio , encounters some bear cubs in an eerily quiet forest and then hears the snuffly-wet sound of their parent behind him, a grownup grizzly who has gained a broadly correct impression of Glass’s overall intentions. The ensuing scene is one of horrifyingly primal violence, a brilliantly conceived CGI-reality cluster, during which I clenched into a whimperingly foetal ball so tight that afterwards I practically had to be rolled out of the cinema auditorium.

The immersion and immediacy of that confrontation reminded me of the moment in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World when moviegoers go to the sensory-enhanced “feelies” and watch a sex scene on a bearskin rug. They feel every bear hair. So could I, and I also felt every droplet of bear spittle, every serration of tooth, and I understood what it feels like when parts of your ribcage are exposed to fresh air and light rain.

Some have described it as a rape scene . It isn’t. But it’s about power, fear and rage, and this moment, quite as much as the human duplicity that follows, is the driving force for this film’s theme, commoner in the movies than real life: revenge, revenge against men and maybe a kind of revenge against nature. Screenwriter Mark L Smith has worked partly from the 2002 novel by Michael Punke , and partly from the real-life story that itself inspired the book: the adventures of Hugh Glass, a Wyoming mountain man who survived a bear-mauling and went on an incredible odyssey to track down the two men who abandoned him to die. This story fictionalises and intensifies his personal circumstances and payback motivation.

Glass has joined other civilian privateers engaged in a US military expedition led by Andrew Henry ( Domhnall Gleeson ) along the Missouri river to establish a lucrative fur-trapping base. Glass and the others are set upon by tribesmen-warriors in an electrifying and terrifying sequence, in which warning cries are silenced by the sibilant arrival of an arrow in the throat. Glass, an experienced tracker, guides the terrified survivors’ retreat across country, where he is mauled by the bear, and two men are detailed and promised extra pay to look after him: young Jim Bridger (Will Poulter) and John Fitzgerald, played by Tom Hardy with pop-eyed, truculent malevolence. Once left alone with their charge, they leave Glass to die in agony and figure on returning to base to pick up their extra pay with a fine tale about giving him a Christian burial. But they reckon without Glass’s fanatical will to survive.

Tom Hardy as John Fitzgerald in The Revenant.

Generally, immersive movies enclose, they put you inside, they dunk you down into what it is supposed to feel like. Iñárritu and his cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki do the opposite: they expose you to the elements. You are out in a piercingly painful cold, under an endless, pitiless sky. This is not an immersion that feels like a sensual surrender; it’s closer to having your skin peeled. The images that the movie conjures are ones of staggering, crystalline beauty: gasp-inducing landscapes and beautifully wrought closeups, such as the leaves in bulbous freezing mounds, and a tiny crescent moon, all unsentimentally rendered. But there is also something hallucinatory and unwholesome about these images, as if hunger and pain has brought Glass to the secularised state of a medieval saint tormented with visions. Poignantly, he mimes shooting distant moose with a tree branch instead of a rifle, and when he suddenly comes across a vast plain full of bison, it’s unclear for a second if he is imagining things. A ruined church looks like a miraculous example of cave painting.

The Revenant recalls Ford’s The Searchers and modifies its themes of tribal and sexual transgression and its cruel invocation of scalping; the warriors who attack at first are enraged at the kidnap of a Native American woman, Powaqa (Melaw Nakehk’o). At other times, Iñárritu appears to be inspired by Herzog’s Aguirre, Wrath of God , with the visions of imperial greed and the vast river in full flood – or maybe his documentary Grizzly Man , in which the grim-faced Herzog famously listened on his headphones to the sound of someone being mauled to death. There is arguably something of Altman in the wintry frontier terrain and certainly a Malickian weightlessness in some of Glass’s dreams of his wife. But what is so distinctive about this Iñárritu picture is its unitary control and its fluency: no matter how extended, the film’s tense story is under the director’s complete control and he unspools great meandering, bravura travelling shots to tell it: not dissimilar, in some ways, to his previous picture, Birdman . The movie is as thrilling and painful as a sheet of ice held to the skin.

Revenant Review: A Unique Departure from Traditional Horror K-Dramas

revenant-review

In the world of Korean dramas, horror genres often take a back seat to romance, comedy, and melodrama. However, “Revenant” breaks away from the norm by delivering a captivating horror experience like no other. Directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu, this exceptional K-drama transcends the physical horrors commonly associated with the genre and delves into the emotional and mental struggles faced by its characters. With a stripped-down narrative and powerful performances, Revenant Review stands as Iñárritu’s most clear-eyed and impactful film to date.

Unveiling the Depths of Survival

What sets Revenant Review apart from other survivalist films is its exploration of the emotional and mental toll of surviving in harsh conditions. While movies like “Deliverance,” “Alive,” and “The Grey” focus on the physical challenges, “Revenant” delves into the depths of the human psyche. It explores not only the actions required to endure in a cold and unforgiving terrain but also the thoughts, motivations, and the determination to keep moving forward. Iñárritu’s approach adds a layer of complexity and depth to the horror genre, making “Revenant” a truly unique viewing experience.

Revenant Review

A Journey of Revenge and Letting Go

At the heart of “Revenant” lies a wounded frontiersman from the 1820s, portrayed by the talented Leonardo DiCaprio. Betrayed, buried alive, and left for dead by his companions (played by Tom Hardy and Will Poulter), DiCaprio’s character embarks on a perilous journey of revenge. However, the film’s narrative is not solely driven by vengeance but rather by the struggle to let go of past grievances. Instead of fixating on whether DiCaprio’s character will seek retribution against Hardy, “Revenant” poses a more profound question: can he ever truly move on?

Nature’s Cruel Indifference

The visual storytelling in “Revenant” is nothing short of breathtaking. Through sweeping shots of swaying trees, glacial water, and harsh weather conditions, Iñárritu captures the unforgiving nature of the wilderness. Unlike Terrence Malick’s films, which often highlight the romanticism and divine beauty of nature, “Revenant” presents a stark contrast. Every scene featuring trees, snow, rain, and water emphasizes the unnatural, cruel, and relentless aspects of the outside world. Rather than pointing to the heavens, the trees obstruct the view, serving as a reminder that nature can be an obstacle to spirituality.

The Motivation to Endure

“Revenant” delves into the profound question of what motivates individuals in harsh and unforgiving environments where religion and faith seem irrelevant. DiCaprio’s character grapples with his desire for revenge and his pursuit of honoring his family’s name. These conflicting motivations are highlighted in recurring visions of his deceased wife. Symbolically, DiCaprio’s cathartic moment occurs within the dilapidated walls of a church, where the ringing of the bell amidst the rugged exterior signifies Iñárritu’s true perspective.

A Worldview Shaped by the Wild

Tom Hardy’s character in “Revenant” presents an alternative worldview shaped by the wild. In a monologue, he argues that there is no God, no morality, and no right or wrong in the wilderness—only the predator and its prey. Hardy’s perspective positions him as the film’s villain, challenging the notion of spirituality and morality in an unforgiving world.

revenant review indonesia

The Thrills of Survival

While “Revenant” delves into deep philosophical themes, it does not shy away from delivering thrilling set pieces. The film features an intense Indian raid, a memorable bear mauling scene, and a gripping one-shot knife fight. These action-packed sequences showcase Iñárritu’s talent for creating heart-pounding moments that keep viewers on the edge of their seats. The bear attack scene, in particular, is a visceral and masterfully crafted sequence that leaves a lasting impression.

Cinematic Brilliance and Divine Camera-work

Emmanuel Lubezki’s cinematography in “Revenant” is nothing short of brilliant. Building on the roving camera-work employed in Iñárritu’s previous film, “Birdman,” Lubezki’s camera captures the characters in intimate and dynamic ways. The camera’s proximity to the characters, even in their bloodied and fogged-up states, draws attention to the cinematographic apparatus. The camera becomes a divine presence, a reminder that even in the harshest landscapes, one is never truly alone.

Suggested Read: https://watchonloop.com/reviews/indiana-jones-and-the-dial-of-destiny-review/

“Revenant” stands as a testament to Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu’s directorial prowess and storytelling finesse. By exploring the emotional and mental aspects of survival, the film transcends the horror genre’s conventional boundaries. With captivating performances, stunning visuals, and thought-provoking themes, Revenant Review immerses viewers in a tale of revenge, redemption, and the resilience of the human spirit.
