The Revenant is a frontier drama based on Michael Punke’s 2002 novel of the same name about the experiences of an early 19th century American trapper who is abandoned by his party after a bear attack. An intense and gripping drama, The Revenant is a grim and bloody tale of revenge in which DiCaprio delivers a gritty and realistic performance. It also includes a spectacular Grizzly bear fight that is worth the price of admission (Klaus Ming January 2016).
