Goofs

Throughout the movie you will hear Green frogs and Pickerel frogs vocalizing in the background. Both of these species range in the eastern United States/southeast Canada and therefore would never be heard in the North American Rockies. Not to mention, frogs are not active and do not call in winter. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]

Visually beautiful, story-wise not on par...
25 January 2016 | by BoxOfficeKidSee all my reviews

The natural landscape and some of the scenes are overwhelming and spectacular! The camera-work is so immersive, you believe are a part of Hugh Glass' journey through the wilderness and back to civilization. Also with great performances not only by DiCaprio, but also Hardy, as the unsympathetic fellow fur trapper leaving Glass behind.

Story-wise, it is a bit thin for a 156 min picture. Glass' quest for vengeance is sometimes lost as he utters few words about his drive and is being more or less, chased himself. The story arc of the Indians quest for their daughter felt a bit out of place and strange. We also get to see the fur trappers p.o.v. that left Glass behind and the Captain way ahead of them. Which in my opinion takes a little bit of the magic of Glass' total perilous journey.

All my stars goes to the beauty, production value and performances alone! Regardless, this is one of those overlong movies one like, but would not sit out for another viewing!
